Someone once said - marriage is an adventure, like going to war - how different can a proposal be then?
Based on Anton Chekhov’s hit play 'The Proposal', this Punjabi adaptation explores the same plot but with a lot of Punjabi tadka. This is the first such adaptation of this classic play, conceptualised & directed by Saurav Padhi. The Punjabi translation has been penned down by Jagdip Singh. Adding to the flavour, this play also features a popular, but withering, traditional comic stand up art - 'Punjabi Phands' - in a contemporary avatar. The lyrics have been penned by Jagdip Singh & Rishabh Tripathi.
Confusion & chaos prevail when the innocent Veeraji is cleverly steered by his man Friday Ramu to ask for their neighbour's daughter’s hand in marriage. Little does Veeraji know about Ramu’s own love interest, Dulari, the neighbour's domestic help. The neighbour, Jaman Singh is more than happy to agree to the alliance & calls out to his daughter, Nimmo. Nimmo is a stark contrast of her sugar coated image created by both Ramu & Jaman Singh. Veeraji (now left alone in the room for a friendly chat with Nimmo) begins a polite conversation that leads to a situation where the battle lines are drawn.
Will Veeraji be able to woo Nimmo? Will Jaman Singh finally get to celebrate the evening? What will happen to Ramu & Dulari?
