PREVIEW FOR GUJARATI DRAMA 'EK PHOOL KHILYANI WAAT'
The Gujaratis knew it long before Ekta or Star Plus did. That Saas Bhi Kabhi
Bahu Thi. And here's their own version of it. "Ek Phool Khilayi Waat", presented
by the Jagdish Shaw Theater, Mumbai, is a play on the relationship between a saas
and a bahu.
An aged couple wants to have grandchildren before they die. They convince their
daughter-in-law, who conceives a child. The mother-in-law is a gynecologist, and
helps her daughter-in-law in every possible way during labor. But soon some misunderstandings
crop up in the family and give rise to some marital and familial issues, and are
solved with the intervention of the mother-in-law. That's it. Might seem a little
unfocused, but this is a comedy-cum-family drama, and there isn't any moral here.
Except maybe that saas bhi kabhi bahu thi.
The play is being organized by the Jain Social Group, an international group with 235 chapters worldwide. This is basically a Gujarati community, and often organizes cultural programs as recreation for its members.
