THAKURMAR JHULI

The eldest five queens deliver handsome baby sons - Hira, Manik, Moti, Shanka and Kanchan. Unfortunately the second youngest queen gave birth to an owl (Bhutum) and the youngest queen delivered a monkey (Buddhu). These two youngest queens and their sons are banished from their palaces to live a life of hardship out in the woods while the other five princes grow up spoiled to stomp around their Dad's kingdom with no regard for the citizens.

In any case, the five human princes chance upon their owl and monkey brothers in the woods. Buddhu and Bhutum eventually realize they are princes too, and set themselves a goal of confronting their father. In all this, an exorbitantly lavish ship arrives with a stunning gorgeous princess of Kalabati on board.

The story takes some fascinating twists from here on, with all the princes shooting to win the beautiful princesses of Kalabatipur, some by devious means. It all ends happily, as you know.
