Hum Safar (Hindustani/90mins) Cast. Harsh Chhaya & Lubna Salim Writ. Javed Siddiqi Prod. Lubna Salim Dir. Salim Arif.
This play is about an erstwhile couple at crossroads, meeting each other over a period of several years. When Sonal (Lubna Salim) and Sameer (Harsh Chhaya) decide to divorce after fifteen years of marriage, they do so with an understanding that life can be started afresh, taking a turn at a crossroad and going separate ways. What seemed an amicable solution leaves a few issues unresolved- While Sameer moves on with his quest of solace, an emotionally fragile Sonal finds herself tangled in a web of isolation and despair. The intricacy of human emotions and the delicate threads that hold a family together keep pulling them to each other and apart. Poignant, Romantic and frequently funny, their lives follow a bittersweet journey of marriage, divorce and missed opportunities. Embellished with several poems of Gulzar in his own voice, the play is as much about love, as it is about urban alienation, family and relationships.
Tickets at Rs. 500, Rs. 300 & Rs. 200 available at the venue. Suitable for 15 years & above.
