Storyline

Basic theme of the film plotted on Sindhi folk tale which is very common and popular in Sindh, on the same story Sindhi poet Shah Abdul Latif Bhittai based one of the surs of his Risalo. According to the story Umar (played by Fazlani), king of Umarkot, is looking for a bride but finds none to his likings. Phog (Noor Muhammad Charlie) mentions the unmatchable beauty of Marvi (Nighat Sultana), a village girl from Malir whom he loves but who is engaged to a fellow villager, Khet. Umar decides to check out Marvi for himself and immediately falls under her spell. After unsuccessfully asking for her hand from her father, he resolves to abduct her. Confined in Umar’s palace, Marvi stubbornly refuses to become his wife, faithful to her pledge to Khet. Turning down silks and jewelry, she longs for her people, the Marus. When Marvi seems about to surrender, having lost hope of being rescued, a wet-nurse reveals that they are milk siblings, thus ruling out any possibility of marriage between them. Umar then hands Marvi back to her people, but Khet and the Marus suspect her chastity. Upon hearing the news, Umar goes for Malir to defend Marvi’s honor. Both have to undergo a trial to prove their innocence by walking through a fire holding a red-hot iron rod. Umar and Marvi come out of the pyre unhurt. In the end, Umar accepts his mistake and blesses Marvi and Khet as they finally marry.
