Summary Devdas and Parvati have shared a special bond since childhood that is put to the test when Devdas is sent away to England to further his studies. Parvati (or Paro) waits for him and lights a diya signifying her undying love for Devdas. When he finally returns Paro's world lights up again. Their love is fully supported by Paro's mother Sumitra. However, thanks to a meddling sister-in-law, the love story takes an unfortunate turn after Devdas' mother Kaushalya insults Sumitra and refuses to accept Paro as her daughter-in-law. The hurt Sumitra arranges Paro's wedding to a rich widower. Devdas turns to his college friend Chunni Babu, who opens Devdas' eyes to the world of alcohol and prostitutes. Enter Chandramukhi, a popular tawaif, who falls in love with the righteous Devdas. Sadly even her love cannot save the doomed Devdas. The pain of his lost love can only be numbed by alcohol, which ultimately consumes his life.
