BLAME IT ON YASHRAJ
A two act wedding madness by Bharat Dabholkar.
Once upon a time, around 54 BC (that's before Bollywood Control), weddings in India were simple, 'rituals-linked-to - individual-communities 'affairs. Then Bollywood happened and changed the face of Indian weddings forever and made them all cloned look-alikes of a Punjabi Bollywood six day wedding.
Blame it on Yashraj, is a hilarious story of a Punjabi/Bengali family caught up in the whirlwind of a wedding getting bigger and bigger by the day, when their darling daughter decides to marry a Muslim boy.
Innovatively mounted, with fast changing video walls as backdrops, every scene and every emotion enhanced with music and dances, hilarious musical parodies of popular Bollywood chartbusters, an ensemble cast of well-known stage and TV artists, with foot tapping musical score of Louis Banks, the play promises to be a laugh a minute roller coaster ride.
The humour in the play comes, not from gags, but from a feeling that "I have seen that, I have said that, I have experienced that in my family" kind of identification. It's a mirror to your life being shown on stage.

History of India - VIRitten
After the roaring success of "Walking on Broken Das", Ashvin Gidwani's new offering "History of India" promises to be the funniest, wittiest and sensational relook at India's history.
From the cradle of civilization in Harappa, to the Vedas and the advent of the Mughal era, from the East India Company to the freedom struggle till we opened ourselves to the world in the 90's.
We can see all of the funny elements that have been a part of our heritage. History is hugely funny, we just haven't read it right.
Come see a show about the history of India. But a history so twisted, so funny, so out-of-the-box, so completely unbelievable, you won't be sure it even actually happened.

The Scent Of A Man Director: Ashvin Gidwani Duration: 90 minutes Cast: Suchitra Pillai, Bhavna Pani, Ash Chandler and Deven Khote Language: English
In a sea of serious social and political dramas and stories dealing with youth issues, sometimes, it's refreshing to come across a play about personal relationships, portraying them in a rather lighthearted and silly manner. The Scent Of A Man is one such example: it doesn't care to throw insight on the secrets of a successful marriage or tries to be preachy. It's simply a witty adult comedy on marriage and infidelity.
To give you a gist, this short, fast-paced play revolves around two married couples - Nikhil (Ash Chandler), a successful advertising executive and his intelligent, but slightly neurotic wife and marriage counsellor Mallika (Suchitra Pillai), and Ananya (Bhavna Pani) a Tupperware saleswoman and her husband Partho (Deven Khote), a college professor. The four of them meet at dinner one night and that's when they realise that they are all involved in a love quadrilateral of sorts. Much chaos ensues before everything gets sorted in the end.
the play gives a light take on many serious marital woes but doesn't preach what is right or wrong, which is what makes it so different from other plays. At best, it hints that sometimes, you need to take things easy in life and look at the brighter side.
