Dastan-e-Chouboli at Studio Safdar

Dastan-e-Chouboli is a Rajasthani folk tale adapted by Vijay Dan Detha and subsequently adapted by Mahmood Farooqui for a Dastanic telling. The story is about a Rajasthani princess who has vowed to marry the person who makes her speak four times in a single night. A chauvinist Thakur takes up the challenge but fails like the 17 times 20 princes before him. Finally, it is left to Thakur's newly wedded wife to rescue everyone from this mess.
