Once upon a time, around 54 BC (that's before Bollywood Control), weddings in India were simple, 'rituals-linked to -individual-communities' affairs. Then Bollywood happened and changed the face of Indian weddings forever and made them all cloned look-alikes of a Punjabi Bollywood six day wedding.
Blame it on Yashraj, is a hilarious story of a Punjabi/Bengali family caught up in the whirlwind of a wedding getting bigger and bigger by the day, when their darling daughter decides to marry a Muslim boy. Innovatively mounted, with fast changing video walls as backdrops, every scene and every emotion enhaced with music and dances, hilarious musical parodies of popular Bollywood chartbusters, an ensemble cast of well-known stage and TV artists, with foot tapping musical score of Louis Bank, the play promises to be a laugh a minute roller coaster ride.
The humour in the play comes, not from gags, but from a feeling that'' I have seen that, I have said that, I have experienced that in my family'' kind of identification. It's a mirror to our life being shown on stage.
