About the Play:
The makers of love, sex and mocha present ‘What’s up with these Indian men’, which is a quirky and fun take on a girl's journey of trying to find love in the confused, urban Indian society. It brings to the fore the numerous male stereotypes that exist in our society today. From the pretentious metro-sexual type, to the penny saving Maddu boy, to the dowry mongering Reddy boy, the play exposes each one of them in a comical fashion.
