Funtoosh Players’ Nikki Aur Vicky is an adorable story of two siblings and how untouched they are from prejudices and social stigmas that get attached to adults. Despite their fears and vulnerabilities, the children innocently surpass the rules put down by their mother to reach out to another child.
Vicky and his sister are precocious youngsters who are at constant loggerheads over anything under the sun, much to their mother’s annoyance. But underneath the constant madness the two can’t do without each other, vouching for the other as and when required. When Munna comes into their lives, there’s havoc at first. Vicky seems to get into trouble whenever Munna is in the scene. But as time passes, the siblings realise that he is fun to be with and spend lots of time with him. Even the social divide between them doesn’t separate the friends, which leads the parents to relent and let them just be what they are- a bunch of kids.
The play is for kids and is made interesting with songs, fun dialogues, and colorful yet minimal stage props. Kids of the ages 5-12 will love references to current favorites Hannah Montana, Power Puff Girls, etc. in a lingo simple enough to grasp.
