The ZEE Bangla Television website is promoting the new serial heavily. “Can today’s Paro pave the right way for Devdas?” asks a big banner.
Devdas on Zee Bangla is an adaptation of the classic novel Devdas by Sarat Chandra Chattopadhay. Devdas' great love saga has been presented in a mega serial format in a way that the Bengali sentiment remains intact.
Devdas is the story of two families with a difference in status and class. Paro's family is from the lower-middle class but is high in aspiration. Dev's comes from a respected family of jamindars from Talsonapur village.
However, Chandramukhi's entry makes the difference in Dev-Paro's relationship. The story takes a twist when Paro is faced with a peculiar situation - will she bring Devdas back in her life or let him go as destiny drives him?
Devdas is all about love - childhood love, casual love, platonic love, love at first sight and love with sacrifice.
