The story of ‘Boo’ revolves around four women in their twenties who decide to celebrate a Halloween night by reading an ominously spooky book. As they begin reading, the lines between fiction and reality start blurring and the girls are unwillingly drawn into each of the stories. Kaira (Rakul Preet Singh) is a jovial and fun-loving girl. She resides in an apartment alone. She has been wanting to celebrate Halloween for years and finally she puts her plan into motion. She invites three of her friends, Rithu (Aayira), Aruna and Kavya (Vidyullekha Raman) for the night. As luck would have it, a little while into the Halloween Party, power goes out in the apartments. To kill time, Kiara pulls out a spooky novel but warns them that the author of the book passed away after writing it. As they progress from one chapter to another, eerie sounds start emanating from their surroundings, adding to their confusion and unease. As they reach the final chapter, they are confronted with a story about a paranormal scientist named Akash (Vishwak Sen) and his girlfriend Meera (Reba Monica John). Gradually, the friends realise that the stories they are reading are actually connected to them. What happens when they discover this? How does the rest of the plot unfold?
