Jaani Dushman: Ek Anokhi Kahani carries the touch of director Rajkumar Kohli’s yesteryear flicks like Nagin(Reena Roy, Feroz Khan) and Jaani Dushman (Sanjeev Kumar, Sunil Dutt). Like his former films, Jaani Dushman: Ek Anokhi Kahani too boasts of attractive starcast and has vendetta as the basic theme of the story.
The story begins in the remote past when Vasundhara (Manisha Koirala) and Kapil (Munish Kohli), two lovers, are separated from each other because of a sadhu’s curse. According to the sadhu (Amrish Puri) they will reunite in future in most unlikely surroundings in 21st century.

Divya, the re-incarnation of Vasundhara, is in love with Karan (Sunny Deol). Karan too loves Divya but he has to leave her to go to Britain for an important business deal. However, Karan leaves behind his younger brother Kapil (Munish Kohli) to pursue college studies and take care of Divya in his absence.
Divya’s two college friends Rajesh and Madan call her slyly to a secluded place and rape her. A molested and tortured Divya dies in Kapil’s arms saying that all her college friends are responsible for her death.
Thereby begins the tale of revenge with Kapil vowing to kill every one who had hand in Divya’s death. In this endeavor he is helped by dead Divya’s spirit.
