Aise Kehte Hain

9th June,Tuesday at 9pm
10th June, Wednesday at 9pm
11th June,Thursday at 9pm

What do you make of a love story comprising a liar, a cop, two runaway circus kids, a guy called chai, a man resolved on suicide, another willing to help him in lieu of money, a bunch of pigeons who occasionally feel the need to break into song & dance and a lonely crow with an identity crisis?

At the farthest end of a deserted railway station a young man spins a story for his love. The story turns into its own raconteur and becomes a testimony of all those moments in life that we like to think of as quirky … the odd broken pieces that never quite fit into the jigsaw puzzle, but are nonetheless preserved, in case someday we find a gap for them.

Can all these sundry characters make a love story? Without love? And can it have a happy ending? They say it is possible.

They say... AISA KEHTE HAIN...

Her small town aspirations based on her exposure to films and advertising are personified in the character of her hero. She is so enamoured of her ‘hero’ that the dialogues he delivers in his films are the only truth she believes in. The make-believe world of her dreams is her reality, which is completely at odds with her family and her village. The clash between her dreams and reality is the essence of the play………

The name "Bombay" was derived from 'Bom Bahia' (The Good Bay),

.... a name given by Portuguese sailor Francis Almeida, in 1508 ....“Bounce back Mumbai” .....as it is called by the locals, it is a city that has been through a lot in the recent past – floods, bomb blasts, riots – and come out stronger each time.
