Major and Gullu agree to the deal. The deal is to help attain moksha (salvation) for depraved souls by exposing the criminals who’d wronged them in life. In return, Ragini will help Major and Gullu earn money.

Both were murdered in a car crash that was orchestrated by Atmaram himself in order to end Dushyant’s reign as king. In the present, Atmaram captures Ragini in a bottle during the lunar eclipse when Ragini’s powers are weakest. Major and Gullu feel deceived, realizing that Ragini manipulated them to seek revenge on Atmaram. Dushyant’s soul is now held captive by Atmaram in his treasury of magic bottles.

The duo is confronted by another benevolent ghost that they’d previously helped with Ragini. This ghost reveals that Ragini is in dire trouble and requires their help in order to free many souls from Atmaram, including Dushyant’s.

Later other souls they have helped, liberated or helped attend salvation join them too in defeating Atmaram and throw him into the underworld’s hellfire. Dushyant is now free.
