The Plot of Suryavanshi 1992
The movie begins in the present day (1992), where Vicky (Salman Khan) is a successful businessman who lives in London with his wife Sonia (Sheeba) and his friend J.B. (Saeed Jaffrey). He is also the heir of the Suryavanshi dynasty, which traces its lineage to the Sun god. One day, he receives a letter from India that informs him that he has inherited a palace called Sangramgadh from his ancestors. He decides to visit the palace with Sonia and J.B., despite the warnings of his mother (Swami Anjana Mumtaz) and his uncle D.D. (Ajit Vachani), who tell him that the palace is haunted by a curse.
When they reach Sangramgadh, they are greeted by Baba (Kader Khan), a caretaker who tells them the history of the palace and the curse. He reveals that 400 years ago, there was a princess named Suryalekha (Amrita Singh), who was the daughter of the Suryavanshi king and the most beautiful woman in the world. She was in love with a prince named Vikram Singh (also Salman Khan), who was the son of another Suryavanshi king and her cousin. However, Vikram Singh betrayed her love and married another princess for political reasons. Suryalekha was heartbroken and enraged by his betrayal and decided to take revenge on him and his descendants. She performed a black magic ritual that gave her immortality and supernatural powers, but also turned her into a bloodthirsty cannibal who ate human flesh. She then killed Vikram Singh and his wife on their wedding night and cursed their souls to be reborn again and again until they would be united with her in death. She also cursed Sangramgadh to be infested with cannibals who would serve her and kill anyone who would enter the palace.
Baba warns Vicky that he is the reincarnation of Vikram Singh and that Suryalekha is waiting for him in the palace. He also tells him that Sonia is the reincarnation of Vikram Singh's wife and that she is in danger from Suryalekha. Vicky does not believe Baba's story and thinks that he is trying to scare him away from the palace. He decides to stay in Sangramgadh with Sonia and J.B., despite Baba's pleas.
Soon, Vicky starts having nightmares and visions of Suryalekha, who tries to seduce him and lure him to her chamber. He also starts behaving strangely and becomes obsessed with finding Suryalekha in the palace. Sonia becomes worried about Vicky's condition and tries to help him. She also meets Mahesh (Puneet Issar), a local police officer who is investigating the mysterious disappearances of people near Sangramgadh. Mahesh tells Sonia that he suspects that there is something evil in the palace and that they should leave as soon as possible.
Meanwhile, J.B. discovers a secret passage in the palace that leads to Suryalekha's chamber. He follows it and finds Suryalekha sitting on a throne surrounded by skulls and bones. He is shocked to see her beauty and tries to talk to her. However, Suryalekha kills him with her powers and eats his flesh.
Sonia learns about J.B.'s death from Baba and realizes that Baba was telling the truth about Suryalekha and the curse. She confronts Vicky and tries to convince him to leave Sangramgadh with her.

He then leaves Sonia and goes to Suryalekha's chamber.
Sonia follows Vicky and reaches Suryalekha's chamber. She sees Vicky and Suryalekha embracing each other and calling each other by their past names. She is shocked and heartbroken by Vicky's betrayal. She also sees J.B.'s corpse and realizes that Suryalekha has killed him.
Suryalekha notices Sonia and mocks her for being a fool. She tells her that she has been waiting for 400 years for Vicky to come back to her and that she will not let anyone come between them. She also tells her that she will kill her and make Vicky watch, just like she did with his previous incarnations.
Sonia tries to reason with Vicky and remind him of their love and marriage. She tells him that he is under Suryalekha's spell and that he should break free from it. She also tells him that Suryalekha is not the real princess, but a demon who has corrupted her soul with black magic.
Vicky is confused and torn between Sonia and Suryalekha. He feels a connection with both of them, but he does not know who to trust. He asks Suryalekha if what Sonia is saying is true. Suryalekha denies it and tells him that Sonia is lying and trying to separate them. She tells him that she is the real princess and that she loves him more than anything.
Vicky is still unsure and asks Suryalekha to prove her love for him. He asks her to give up her immortality and powers and become a human again, just like him. He tells her that if she does that, he will believe her and stay with her forever.
Suryalekha is shocked by Vicky's request. She tells him that she cannot do that, as it would mean losing everything that she has gained over the centuries. She tells him that he should accept her as she is, with all her flaws and strengths. She tells him that he should be grateful for her love, as no one else can love him like she does.
Vicky realizes that Suryalekha is selfish and manipulative. He understands that she does not love him, but only wants to possess him. He also remembers his love for Sonia and regrets hurting her. He decides to reject Suryalekha and choose Sonia.
Vicky tells Suryalekha that he does not love her anymore and that he wants to be with Sonia. He tells her that he is sorry for what he did to her in the past, but he cannot change it. He tells her that he hopes that she can find peace in the afterlife.
Suryalekha is furious and hurt by Vicky's rejection. She tells him that he has made a big mistake and that he will pay for it. She tells him that she will never let him go and that she will kill him and Sonia together.
Suryalekha attacks Vicky and Sonia with her powers, but they manage to dodge them. They run towards the exit of the chamber, but they are blocked by the cannibals who work for Suryalekha. They fight their way through them, but they are outnumbered and surrounded.
At this point, Mahesh arrives with his police team and rescues Vicky and Sonia from the cannibals. He tells them that he followed them to the palace after finding out about J.B.'s death from Baba. He also tells them that he has brought explosives to destroy the palace and end the curse once and for all.
Vicky, Sonia, Mahesh, and the police escape from the palace, while Suryalekha chases them with rage. They reach a safe distance from the palace and detonate the explosives, causing the palace to collapse in flames.
Vicky and Sonia watch the palace burn and hug each other with relief. They thank Mahesh for saving their lives and apologize for not listening to him earlier. Mahesh forgives them and congratulates them on their victory over Suryalekha.
As the movie ends, Vicky and Sonia kiss each other and declare their love for each other. They also hope that Suryalekha's soul has found peace in death and that the curse has been lifted forever.
