Speaking about the play, Khurana says, “Sometimes is a play everyone can connect to on some level. Even the comedy is something that people may notice in their day-to-day life. I would describe the comedy of the play as very relevant. The play has an Indian feel to it; the characters and the plot are for an audience that can connect to it. We have performed over 50 times now and hope that Pune likes it too.”
The plot revolves around Paramjit Singh Duggal (Pammi) who needs time to re-discover himself among all his problems. His mother wants grandchildren; his father wants him to join the family business; his boss wants way too much and pays too little. And he owes a mysterious man some money.
Shikha Talsania, who stars in the play said, “The play was a gratifying experience for me as I am playing the role of the mother of the protagonist. It was quite an experience as I was playing a character which is much older than what I am. The chemistry of the performers on stage was really great.”
Writer Adhir Bhatt admits that the production has slice-of-life moments and is enjoyable for people of all age groups. “We did not want the play to be too intellectual. That is why we have kept the language of the play simple by including the daily language people use,” he states.
On: July 20, 7 pm onwards
At: Turf Club, Hadapsar.
