  1. Review of the Play ‘Salaam Noni Aapa’
    Primetime Theatre’s Salaam Noni Aapa is a break from monotonous, over-dramatic and rather long plays. The play is short and sweet. Lillette Dubey’s performance as usual is the best thing about the play. The play has been adapted from the book ‘The Legend of Lakshmi Prasad’ witten by Twinkle Khanna and it beautifully demystifies the assumptions associated with relationships beyond marriage and the assumptions associated with the institution of marriage itself. The play also explores relationships beyond marriage like that of friends and subtly attempts to give a new definition to love. There is also good humour in the play which is unparalleled and is rather innovative when compared with the previous big-scale productions of Primetime theatre group like ‘Dance Like a Man’, ‘Where did I Leave my Purdah’ and others. The other actors in the play also essayed their roles beautifully. Darshan Jariwalla plays Anandji (a friend, trainer and may be even love of Noni aapa). The acclaimed television actress Jayati Bhatia, plays the role of Noni Aapa’s sister.
    There is good humour in the play in many scenes like the one in which Jayati Bhatia is unable to do the aasanas that guruji wants her to do. However, despite the little humour the play gives a message – love knows no bounds and age has nothing to do with one’s desire to seek companionship, if not true love. The most interesting part of the play is when Noni Aapa is hospitalised and nobody except her sister and Anandji are there to stand by her. It is at this moment that the relevance of the title of the play is exposed. How beautifully it is done is something better watched than read.
    Fabindia’s association with the play is also a welcome step and a delightful surprise as the costumes look beautiful and blend without bringing about an overtly glossy and glitzy image of the characters and thus making the performance more realistic and appealing. Though the play has essentially four characters – Noni aapa, her sister, Anandji and Mallika the daughter of Noni aapa, it is the fifth character – that of the watchman who ensures there is fun and frolic throughout the play. There is also a sixth character – that of Anandji’s wife. But, she is a terror and a terror that one does need to witness. No wonder we all have no complaints with the happy ending of the play with little or no regret for this woman.
    The play also has some good dialogues which are well narrated by the actors for instance when Anandji has to make a choice, he says there are some people who want drama all the time, but that doesn’t mean we have to watch it! The play definitely steals the show for its simplicity, for its humour, for its subtle yet strong message and most importantly for its realism that is far moved from idealism. At the end of the play, one applauds at the performance that one saw. But, at the end of this wonderful play, you would all applaud and feel like saying “Salaam Noni Aapa!”
