Plot

Gulaal(female protagonist) is a young girl from Rashipur, Kutch. She has a zest for life and is God-gifted with the unique ability to unearth water in arid lands. Talsagra, a neighbouring village of Rashipur, has been hit by a harsh drought. Vasant (the protagonist) from Talsagra learns of Gulaal’s talent and in order to end the woes of his people, he sets out in search of Gulaal. When Vasant recounts the situation of Talsagra, Gulaal against the will of the entire clan, decides to go to Talsagra for the sake of humanity. Gulaal is finally able to end the hostility between the villages and brings joy to hundreds of people. During her stay in Talsagra, she wins over the hearts of most people and both Vasant and his older brother Dushyant fall in love with Gulaal. Eventually, the love between Vasant and Gulaal blossoms and both tie the knot. However, her happiness is short-lived when Vasant dies suddenly. Unbeknownst to all, it is Vasant's own brother Dushyant who lets Vasant die by throwing him off a bridge after he meets with an accident.[1]

It is captivating to see Gulaal fighting spiritedly, making intelligent choices and taking over the responsibilities of her family. After Vasant's death, she decides to make his dreams and responsibilities her own. In order for her to do so, she is forced to choose marrying one of Vasant's brothers - Dushyant or Kesar, according to the system of deeyarvatu or remarriage. She marries Kesar, who is merely a young boy of around ten, and Dushyant soon realizes that killing Vasant was not right and he decides to mend his ways. Sometime later Kesar finds out that Dushyant has killed Vasant and acts very rebellious. He is sent off to a boarding school for his well-being.

Years pass by. Gulaal continues living in Vasant's house and is still trying to fill in for him by fulfilling his responsibilities. Talli, a young girl whose parents died when she was a child, and who was brought up by Sudha (Vasant's brother Raman's wife) grows up and dreams of marrying her childhood friend Kesar one day. Kesar(male protagonist after Vasant 's death) finally returns home from boarding school. He still harbours a grudge and behaves rudely with Dushyant and Gulaal even though he doesn't want to. In time, Kesar falls in love with Gulaal, and unaware of his feelings she has been planning to get Kesar and Talli married. Much to the disapproval of the elders of the house, the day of Kesar and Talli's wedding arrives but Kesar refuses to marry her and questions his relationship with Gulaal. Gulaal steps in and declares that there is no identity or even a chance of existence for their deeyarvatu. The issue is taken to the Panchayat where Gulaal expresses her wish to break off her marriage with Kesar. But Kesar says that his happiness lies in Gulaal continuing to remain his wife. The Panchayat favours Kesar. On the same day Kesar confesses his love for her to Gulaal. Gulaal is shocked and decides to leave Vasant's home for good. Kesar takes the matter to the Panchayat who instruct them to stay together for three months before the deeyarvatu can be broken off.

Talli, who was heartbroken when Kesar left her, has found love with a young rich boy Kunal and they wish to marry each other. To attend this wedding, Motabha's jiji (older sister) arrives. Much to everyone's disappointment Motabha's jiji has put some land in Kesar and Gulaal's child's name. Kesar, while arguing with Dushyant, blurts out that he knows that Dushyant murdered Vasant. This leaves Motabha aghast and heartbroken. He loses faith in Gulaal. Kesar tells Gulaal that he only has a few days left with her until their marriage is dissolved and asks her to spend time with him. Gulaal agrees but when the three months are over and they go before the Panchayat, she sticks with her decision to break the marriage. Motabha then announces that the marriage is broken. Gulaal goes to stay with her mother and Kesar is heartbroken. Kunal and Talli's marriage runs into trouble and they decide to elope with Gulaal and Kesar's help. Kunal goes to Gulaal's house and asks her to call Kesar to tell him to bring Talli to the temple, where they are married with Gulaal and Kesar in attendance. But Kunal's mother finds it difficult to accept Talli and tries to create misunderstandings between the newly weds by painting her in a bad light before Kunal. Very soon she realises that Talli is an extremely polite and kind girl and accepts her wholeheartedly. Meanwhile, Kesar decides to leave the village and his home to move to the city. Gulaal is also extremely upset at her mother's house and constantly thinks of the time spent with Kesar. On his way to the city Kesar meets with an accident and is brought back home. When Gulaal is informed she runs to meet him and while at the bedside of an unconscious kesar, she realizes she has fallen in love with him and they decide to live together with the family in Talsagra.
