Marriage – India Journal Dharmesh Vyas a veteran of 27 years of stage , who also conceived the story revealed that this play has taken Mumbai by storm and within 3 months of launch it has already completed 75 shows. When the original cast is performing in the US, for the first time ever, a second cast is playing to houseful audiences simultaneously in India now. The storyline came to him when while Goggling on the net, to his amazement he saw 66.7% of divorce globally fell in the above 60s bracket and not among the younger generations as one is inclined to think. Discussions with friends and elders showed the reason could arise from monotony which creeps in after years of marriage when couples begin to take one another they forget the good times they shared. Writer Nimesh Shah, who wrote the script, added that this is the important message the play seeks to highlight, but in a hilarious yet meaningful manner. He believes that after all the laughs watching the comedy unfold, couples would leave with a greater understanding and respect for each other.
whether you might have entered it on an impulse or with a lot of thought, the end result remains the same. This is basically the plot of Patni Nachave Bhagwan Bachave. The play is about what happens when love goes sour and marriage becomes a routine. This play took the audience on a laughter spree.
