Despite this minor issue, the film is doing well and is expected to rake in more money during the weekend. The film is a treat for those who have enjoyed the first three installments of the franchise. Set in the year 1921, the film tells the story of Ayush (Karan) and Rose (Zareen) against a cursed spirit that would lead them to their ultimate fate.
