Dinesh Thakur’s Ank presents its 85th production, written and directed by National award-winning filmmaker, Veena Bakshi, a laughter-filled, 90-minute play that looks at the Indian obsession with weddings.
Kaveri and Dashrath, who are upwardly mobile typical Bomayites, suddenly find their U.P. backbone when it comes to their daughter’s wedding. They are determined to have a beautiful wedding for their daughter Neeta with Kaveri striving for the most perfect party, food and décor that would be talked about amongst her social set for years to come. The entire household, friends, assorted domestic help, and an ever-interfering uncle have all 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 a list of do’s and don’ts.
Kaveri, however, will brook no interference in what she now regards as her major project in life—her daughter’s perfect traditional wedding. Neeta’s solution is to find a novel way to boycott the wedding. Will the wedding take place at all? Will the two generations find the middle path to sanity?
