Synopsis

During the reign of Akbar, Pathan-Mughal battles erupted in the south-western part of what is now the Indian state of Paschimbanga (West Bengal). In Mandaran (in modern-day Hooghly district, West Bengal), Jagat Singh, a Mughal army general and son of Raja Man Singh, meets Tilottama, daughter of Birendra Singha, a feudal lord of south-western Bengal, and they fall in love. Katlu Khan, a rebel Pathan chief, attacks Mandaran as they prepare for their wedding. Birendra Singha is killed in combat, and Jagat Singh, along with Birendra’s widow Bimala and their daughter Tilottama, is imprisoned. Ayesha Khan, Katlu Khan’s daughter, protects Tilottama from her father’s lust, but she falls in love with Jagat Singh herself. Bimala later seeks vengeance for her husband’s death by stabbing Katlu Khan. Meanwhile, Man Singh strikes a deal with the Pathans, and Jagat Singh is released free. However, Osman, Ayesha’s lover, challenges Jagat Singh to a duel, which Jagat Singh wins. Ayesha gives up hope for Jagat Singh, a Hindu prince who would never marry a Muslim lady, but she ultimately help Tilottama marry Jagat Singh.
