Big B’???? No, not Mr. Bachchan, it’s Mr. Premchan(d). It’s the ‘IND-lish’ and ‘Comic’ version of the latter’s celebrated short-story ‘Bade Bhai Saheb’.
Its the first of its kind …the first ever in ‘Broken English’. Savor it:
Do not go outside, it is very ‘nighty’.
I am ‘well’ but my brother is ‘in well’.
‘Knife’ without ‘K’ is like ‘Chaku’ without ‘Cha’
Rise and 5 am and arouse me at 6 am.
It’s about two Hindi-speaking brothers polishing each other’s English. They are the ‘studious’ Kamta Prasad and the ‘sporty’ Samta Prasad. Thus the play also revolves around History & Hockey, Geography & Gulli Danda, and Chemistry & Cricket.
In addition…. Well! The rest needs to be seen and laughed at
