Plot

Aditya (Shahrukh Khan) is an Engineer on a cruise line, and lives a wealthy lifestyle along with his wife, Anjali (Juhi Chawla), and a school-going son, Manku (Aman Siddiqui). They decide to re-locate to Goa and rent a bungalow, ‘Nath Villa’, that was built in 1964. They are made aware that the bungalow is haunted, but they disregard this. While the family works, Aditiya has to go back to the cruise line to work for three months, Banku is enrolled in St. Francis High School, and Anjali hires a drunken thief, Anthony (Rajpal Yadav), as a helper to clean the house. Shortly thereafter Banku starts getting in trouble in school, and is reprimanded by Principal J.J. Irani (Satish Shah). To make matters worse, he also starts making up stories of a new friend ‘Bhoothnath’. Anjali disregards this, but during a stage performance, a local resident tells her that Banku is mimicking the former owner of Nath Villa. Anjali will soon find out that indeed the bungalow is haunted by its former owner – Kailash Nath (Amitabh Bachchan) – who has befriended Banku, and will not permit them to vacate the house under any circumstance. However, When Anjali gets aware of this, she quickly tells Aditiya everything about this, and Aditiya rushes back to the house. Aditiya hires a Death ceremony for Bhoothnath. Aditiya also informs Kailash Nath’s son Vijay Nath (Priyanshu Chatterjee). While Bhoothnath is leaving and going back to heaven he promises Banku that every time he thinks of him, he will appear in front of Banku. The ending shows that on his way to school, Banku sees Bhoothnath and he tells him that nobody could ever separate them.
