Reviews

The funniest Hindi-Urdu play seen on the city's stage in a long time - Deepa Gahlot (Bombay Times)

A tale with dialogues, poetry, and mujras providing hearty laughter - Hindustan Times

A play with slapstic humour & intelligently timed sarcasm. Usage of live music is a boon and feet tapping tunes do set the atmosphere for what is to unfold. - Mumbai Theatre Guide

Rangbaaz Group Imran Rasheed and Pawan Uttam have been active in the Hindi Theatre Scene in India since the past 8 years with groups like Ekjute, AK Various and Aranya. Rangbaaz group has been founded by them to involve its participants in the tribulations of Hindi Theatre and to play some part in the revival and growth of Hindi Stage, which has been losing its appeal and audience base, especially in Metros. Bringing humorous stories by known and unknown writers like Premchand and Shaukat Thanvi on stage with different groups is an effort in the same direction.

Director Imran Rasheed, a bachelor of arts from Aligarh Muslim University has worked with eminent personalities like Nadira Babbar, Naseeruddin Shah, Akarsh Khurana and Manav Kaul. A talented theatre actor, besides acting in various productions, he has also directed a play with Ekjute Theatre Group, called Roshnai Ka Safar
