The story of Dhola and Maru comes from Rajasthan though there are versions from Chhattisgarh as well. The story is of a prince Dhola and a princess Maru who are married in childhood. But when the father of Dhola dies in battle there is no one to remind him of his marriage. He grows up forgetting about Maru and marries Malwani. A group of folk singers from Maru’s hometown of Poogal visit Narwar and remind Dhola of his first marriage. He remembers everything and faces many obstacles, from Malwani and Maru’s admirer Umar Sumar, to get back to Maru. In the end they are able to get back together and live happily every after.
