Movie Synopsis :
Bihula is a prominent festival of eastern Bihar especially famous in Bhagalpur. Also, there is a big temple of Bihula in Bengal where the wife prays for the long lives for their husband. There are many myths related to Bihula. People pray to goddess Mansa Debi for the welfare of their family. The below mentioned story katha is narrated before a newly married bride on the occasion of Madhusravani.

Bihula is a mythological feature film made in Bhojpuri & Bangla languages. The story is about Manasa Debi, the daughter of Lord Shiva. She was said to have extraordinary supernatural power to bless her devotees. She can also ruin and kill those who do not believe in her existence and do not offer their prayer to her.

There was a very rich merchant, named Chandu Saudagar. He was a great devotee of Lord Shiva. He had six sons and a happy family. He did not consider Manasa Debi as a Goddess. Manasa Debi did not like this attitude of Chandu Saudagar and killed all his six sons by sending snakes on their suhaagraat. However, Chandu Saudagar did not relent even after losing all his wealth & family.

Pleased with the devotion of Chandu, one day Lord Shiva appeared in his dream and expressed his willingness to bless him with some great things as per the desire of Chandu. Chandu Saudagar asked him for a son. Lord Shiva agreed to bless him with a son. Later, Chandu wife gave birth to a male child who was named Lakhinder. Lakhinder was bright, cultured intelligent child.

When he reached the marriageable age his father wanted to solemnize his marriage ceremony with a qualified and cultured girl. After a great search, Chandu Saudagar found Bihula, whom Lakhinder had already met once while on his way back home after completing his studies in ashram. Both Lakhinder & Bihula had fallen in love on first sight. Bihula was very beautiful, cultured and a homely girl. Chandu also came to know that according to her family tradition every woman dies as a sumangali and none of them would become a widow at any point of time. In this family tradition of Bihula, Chandu Saudagar saw a ray of hope for his dear son Lakhinder and decided to choose Bihula as a bride for his son.

The marriage was solemnized in a happy atmosphere. A Lakshyagrah was designed to save Lakhinder on the suhaagraat but due to the conspiracy hatched by Vishar at the behest of Manasa Debi the Lahhinder was bitten & killed by the cobra on his first night of the bridal-bed in the bridal chamber Lakshyagrah itself. Lakhinder breathed his last. The innocent but firm Bihula decided to remain with his dead body on a raft in the river Ganges.

Chandu and neighbouring people made futile attempts to dissuade her but she was determined. With no other alternative left, Chandu gave permission to Bihula to start her voyage on a raft along with her husband dead body. The current slowly carried the raft. Bihula had to face various difficulties in her journey, but she overcame them all.

Finally Bihula found a washerwoman washing the clothes by the side of the river Ganges. Her small child was disturbing her. Getting irritated with the behavior of her girl child, the washerwoman killed her baby and started washing her clothes. Once she finished washing her clothes, she sprinkled some drops of water on the face of her baby and the dead baby became alive. Bihula took no time to understand the supernatural power of this lady and took shelter at her feet and narrated her, her own story.

In accordance with the advice of washerwoman, Bihula reached the Dev Lok Heaven with her. On the instruction of the washerwoman, Bihula performed a wonderful dance to please the Lord. The Lord was very impressed by her graceful performance and was moved by the story of her tragic life on earth. He called Manasa and asked her to give the reasons of her tragedy.

Manasa vehemently denied that she was responsible for the tragedy of Bihula. However, Bihula succeeded in producing definite evidence. But Manasa insisted that she was not responsible for the sad plight of Bihula, and it was Chandu Saudagar, her father-in-law, who was solely responsible, because he always abused and disrespected Manasa Debi and did not consider her to be a goddess worthy of worship.

Manasa then told Bihula that if Chandu Saudagar were to worship her, she would bring Lakhinder back to life. Bihula felt the hope of restoration of life for the corpse of her husband in the statement of Manasa and agreed to her proposal. Manasa then brought Lakhinder and other six sons of Chandu Saudagar back to life by chanting spells.

As per the request of Bihula, Manasa Debi recovered all the wealth that had been submerged by her wrath. She returned all the seven sons and lost wealth of Chandu Saudagar.

Bihula came down to the city in the earth where Chandu Saudagar and his wife were counting the days to breathe their last. All of a sudden they received all their lost sons along with the wealth. Now Chandu Saudagar realized the power of Bihula and gave his consent to worship Manasa Debi. The goddess blessed him. Finally, Chandu Saudagar worshipped Manasa. Thus, Chandu Saudagar, a devotee and follower of Lord Shiva, changed his religious ideas and became one of the staunch followers of the Manasa Debi.
