Sadhe Chay Rupey ka Kya Kiya

The Hindi play, translated from a Marathi play, is a peculiar love story of a husband and wife and their playful conflicts on silly and littlest of things; thereby outlining the mischief, liveliness and honesty in their relationship. The script is cleverly poised for humour and well adorns the simplicity of both the characters.

Khayal ki Dastak:

Does the love remain intact after decades of separation? Does a marriage with another person makes it look different? The thought of love knocks after years of separation and the life changes. Intense emotions are on boil. A hint of touch means a lot. There are questions raised on integrity. A collage of complex emotions at it's best (or worst). A short play about a man and woman madly in love once. They meet again after decades. Are things the same between them? Do those moments mean the same? How do they see life ahead? An intense drama built on exemplary writing, brings out the human emotions in its entirety
