He is further infuriated by the news of Bhola's sister, Sudha, organising the villagers to fight against his atrocities. Though he decides to harm her, his plan fails due to his son, Dipon, falling in love with her. He marries her despite Rajib's warning of him losing his right over Rajib's property. Rajib appears to have a change of heart and accepts Sudha as his daughter in law. However, it is soon revealed that the entire incident including Dipon's marriage was pre-planned by Rajib and Dipon to seek revenge from Bhola and his sister. They accuse Bhola of attempting to rape Brinda and throw him behind bars after which they start to torture Sudha. The rest of the film deals with how Bhola manages to seek his revenge and save the village from the evil Rajib.
