Maar Dala (Hindi: मार डाला, Urdu: مار ڈالا) "(He/It) Killed (Me)" is a song from the 2002 Indian period drama film "Devdas".

The movie is based on the novel of the namesake novel by the Bengali writer Sharat Chandra Chattopadhyay.
It tells the story of a star-crossed couple formed by Devdas (in the movie, played by the Indian actor Shah Rukh Khan) and Parvati or "Paro" (played by the Indian actress Aishwarya Rai).

In both the movie and the novel, Devdas, unable to make good his love for Paro, moves into a brothel and becomes an alcoholic, where a courtesan called Chandramukhi (played by the Indian dancer and actress Madhuri Dixit) falls in love with him.

In the video clip, Chandramukhi is shown dancing and singing in for Devdas and Kalibabu (an evil character played by the Indian actor Milind Gunaji) who is also a brothel customer.
While Chandramukhi tries to continue with her dancing she shows increasing concern for Devdas, who is heartbroken and in the process of drinking himself to death. In the end, Devdas passes out and Chandramukhi stops dancing.

The actual singer is the Indian playback singer Kavita Krishnamurti. Remarkably, Madhuri Dixit was pregnant while performing the dance scene.
The lyrics were written by the prolific Bollywood writer Nusrat Badr, and the music was composed by the Indian musician and composer Ismail Darbar.
