Dastangoi is an ancient Urdu storytelling form. It was one of the most popular forms of folk entertainment in Indian subcontinent till the late 19th Century. It was revived during the mid-late 2000s.


Dastan-e-Ameer Hamza is the most popular stories that are told in this form. In these stories, Ameer hamza’s friend Amar Aiyaar (Amar, the trickster) along with his other Aiyaar friends, fight the magicians of Afraasiyab, the villain, in a world of fantasies and magic, Tilism-e-hoshruba. Though the main characters of the stories are Arab, Indian Dastangos made them quite Indian using the local languages, anecdotes, and characters. Each Dastan is an episode of one or more of these fights, with its own unique narrative, tricks, and literature.


Kafeel Jafri will be presenting one such episode from Tilism-e-hoshruba, "Dastan Mahtab Jadu ki"
