About The Play

The comedy, which raises questions about art and friendship, concerns three long-time friends, Sameer, Mahesh, and Imran. Sameer, indulging his penchant for modern art, buys a large, expensive, completely white painting, putting their previously solid friendship on shaky ground. Mahesh is horrified, and their relationship suffers considerable strain as a result of their differing opinions about what constitutes “art”. Insecure Imran, burdened by the problems of his impending doom (wedding), gets caught in the middle of the conflict and tries to mollify both of them. As their arguments become less theoretical and more personal, they border on destroying their friendship.
