The show was based on the three different plays of well-known writer Manto with an all new episode of the Karishma. This soused hooker strikes on the weaker vein of the client by announcing that his wife had come complaining about him last time about his potentiality. Back to story, the client feels disgruntled as the pimp Kariya has cheated him by promising that the girl belonged to the opposite religion whereas she was only from the same religious faith as that practiced by the client. Though he and his friend have already had sex with the girl they go to the pimp and asks him to pay their money back because he failed to keep his assurance about the religious identity of the girl. Kariya says that the girls of all religions are just girls equal in every respects. And before this the girl was more categorical in her reply to the client that the pain and insult felt by the girl is the same notwithstanding her religious faith. But you know our country is a religious country and so the client takes his revolver out and is ready to kill the pimp. Kariya also draws his own revolver. And somehow both of them depart from each other threatening each other of serious consequences in future.
Now Kariya search for another client. A man Amar is waiting on the road for his friend. Kariya offers him that he can provide a girl for having fun. After some hesitation Amar agrees for getting the service of the prostitute. Kariya goes inside his house and asks his wife Mamta to get ready for the client. Mamta refuses to go for such a mean job again. Kariya treats very badly with her and after a long-lasting verbal duel he throws her out of his house. The helpless woman has to be ready for the prostitution again. Amar eavesdrops all the verbal exchanges between Kariya and Mamta, Amar is very sorry on the state of affairs. After some time when Kariya brings Mamta and offers her to Amar for nightlong. Amar pays money and takes the hands of Mamta in his own and goes to his friend's residence along with her. There he doesn't do anything unbecoming with Mamta and asks her about her conditions of life. Mamta is annoyed and says just do what you want with me and leave me as I want to go back and sleep. Amar says he just wanted to know about her condition and he has not to do anything more. Then he takes Mamta and drops her at the residence of her husband and pimp Kariya.
Also at the very outset, a scene of the communal riot is shown. The mob of one community gets hold of a man. They ask him to show his genital organ to verify his community. He is very afraid and prays as he has to live in an area inhabited by the opposite community so he has get his organ treated that way but he fact he does not belong to that community and in fact is a part of the community of the mob. But the hooligan in mob kill that man. Thus, they killed a man of their own community just on the basis of doubt.
The features of the script of Raas Raaz has already been discussed at the top.
An entertainment masala it may look being full of sex, dance and crime, the underlying message emerged very strongly as if a woman is tortured beyond her limit she may turn into a killer too. And over all of this it hit the very root of the dividing ideologies belonging to any community.
