Zamindar Narayan Mukherjee's son was Debdas and their neighbour Nilkantha Chakraborty's daughter was Parbati. As father Narayan Mukherjee wished that Debdas had to go to Culcutta for higher studies. After two years when Debdas returned, finding a lot of changes in him Parbati was in tears. She remembered her childhood days. They were in deep love. Parbati when attained the age of marriage her mother-in-law proposed her marriage with Debdas to Narayan Mukherjee's wife. But Narayan Mukherjee turned down the proposal. So Parbati had to marry Bhuban Chowdhury a aged Zamindar of Burdwan with adult son and daughter. Missing Parbati, Debdas became an addict to drinking. During these days Chunilal was his companion. Chunilal introduced Debdas with Chandramukhi, a prostitute. The Chandramukhi was the only resort of Debdas. In the mean time Debdas's father died. Debdas's elder son Dwija Das and his wife gave a huge amount of loan to Debdas keeping his share of Zamindar as mortgage. Debdas keep himself all day drowned in the liquor. He told Parbati that before he dies he will surely visit her place. One day Parbati picked up a drunken Debdas from road side. He was suffering from liver pain and fever. Chandramukhi nursed him and cured him. But he could not find Chandramukhi what he was searching. So one day he left the place. Debdas realised one day that his death is approaching very fast. He remembered his promise. So he had to return to Parbati anyhow before his death. But when Debdas reached to Parbati's place he was already dead.
