In its 85th production, Dinesh Thakur’s Ank presents a laughter-filled play, written and directed by National Award-winning filmmaker Veena Bakshi, that takes a look at the Indian obsession with weddings.
Kaveri and Dashrath are upwardly mobile Mumbaikars who are determined to have a beautiful wedding for their daughter Neeta. Kaveri strives to host the perfect party, with the best food and décor, which she hopes will be talked about in her social set for years to come. The entire household, friends, assorted domestic helpers and an ever-interfering uncle have been deployed by Kaveri to have a perfect, traditional, by-the-book wedding. Neeta, born and brought up in Mumbai, is totally flummoxed by these newfound rituals and the long list of dos and don’ts. However, Kaveri will brook no interference in what she now regards as the major project in her life—her daughter’s perfect wedding. Neeta’s solution is to find a novel way of boycotting the wedding. Will it take place at all? Will the two generations find a middle path to sanity?
