Anything But Love: Play Review

With hundreds of shows staged across the country, Ace Productions’ Anything But Love is undoubtedly one of the most-popular plays in recent years. Though hype often leads to disappointment, that isn’t the case here. In fact, watching the play makes it obvious exactly why it’s so famous.
 
Anything But Love, directed by Vikranth Pawar, stars Mandira Bedi and Samir Soni, who are both stars in their own right. The two play Seema and Anisha, a divorced couple who decide to meet up for old times’ sake. While Seema has remarried, Anish has had an eventful couple of years as well, what with gay psychiatrists and his womanizing ways! Disaster strikes as the two realize they still harbor feelings for each other. Will they act rationally? Or will history repeat itself?
 
The play takes a hilarious look at Anish and Seema’s relationship. Though it has serious undertones, the play remains lighthearted for the most part. In fact, it is filled with witty one-liners and comebacks that are bound to make you laugh. These dialogues are also delivered with just the right amount of ingenuity and sarcasm, making the viewers feel like they’re watching a sitcom on stage.
 
The best part of the play is that there’s never a dull moment. Yes, Anything But Love is anything but boring!
 
Both Mandira Bedi and Samir Soni deliver great performances. However, what makes the play as enjoyable as it is, is the chemistry between the duo. They share a rapport that can win over even the most-hardened of cynics. In fact, their performances and the writing make it difficult for viewers to decide whom to root for!
 
The transitions between the scenes are also enjoyable. They feature tracks like I Can See Clearly Now, Something Stupid, Fever and Stand By Me, which perfectly fit the play.
 
Anything But Love tries to incorporate a serious story arc as well. Though it isn’t the highlight of the play, this minor flaw is easy to ignore in an otherwise stellar production. If you’re looking to watch an entertaining and witty play, keep an eye out for Anything But Love.
