‘Prastaav’ – a Hindi Play at Lamakaan, Hyderabad



Prastaav is a play in Hindi, adapted from Anton Chekovs. A Marriage Proposal written in 1888-1889 and first performed in 1890. It is a fast-paced play of dialogue-based action and situational humour. A hilarious play depicting romance and marriage. The farce explores the process of getting married and is a satire on the upper middle class and courtship.

The play points out the struggle to balance the economic necessities of marriage and what the characters themselves actually want. It shows that marriage is a mean of economic stability for most people and they marry to gain wealth and possessions or to satisfy social pressure.

Madan Sharma, a long-time neighbour of Kamalprasad Varma, has come with a marriage proposal for Varma’s daughter Radha but gets into an argument with her about the disputed land and also about their respective hunting dogs.
Watch the play to see if Sharma ultimately manages to propose her or not? Let’s see if he and Radha will get married or not.
