Riding on the success of their popular Punjabi play ‘NRI -Nahin Rehna India’, in Australia, Canada and New Zealand, the array of well-known Pollywood actors staged this production at Tagore Theatre on Thursday.

The charity show of the comedy play, written and directed by ace comedian Binoo Dhillon was presented under the aegis of Patiala-based Theatre Workers Welfare Society to a record audience.

Sa n s an y conventiona l story and a plot, the theatrical venture mainly delved into detailed analysis of facts relating to life of a common man in Punjab, the unethical role of contemptuous political leaders fanning corruption, self-styled godmen (Babey), social evils like female foeticide, piracy of music, the poor lyricism, money lenders, immigration, both legal and illegal, especially on marriage base, employment avenues abroad, visas and documentation on exorbitant fees.

The 150-minute-long drama featured nine actors who kept on making instantaneous shifts to portray 25 characters with consummate ease. The play offered various sequences with actors displaying skills in modelling, fashion show, acting spells of wit, humour and satire, besides dances on recorded music to illustrate their view point.

Binno Dhillon led the star cast, including BN Sharma, Karamjeet Anmol, Jaggi Dhuri, Ravinder Mand, Gagan Gill, Riya Singh, Nisha Bano and Raghubir Boli.
