‘The Siddhus Of Upper Juhu’

I went to watch an English play called the ‘The Siddhus Of Upper Juhu’ with dad yesterday evening. I must say I thoroughly enjoyed it, Rajit Kapur & Shernaz Patel were excellent (the husband-wife duo).
Though it lasted just for 90 minutes or so, it entertained all through.

The play is set on the 14th floor apartment in a fancy locality. To begin with, I found the names hilarious ~ Rajit Kapoor {Balvinder aka Bubbles Siddhu}, an ageing financial executive and his Parsi wife Shernaz Patel {Behroze}

It’s not all hunky-dory living in the fancy locality on the 14th floor…the walls are paper thin and crumbling, the neighbors are annoying, the plumbing is a mess, the howling of stray dogs outside awakens them at midnight etc. Just when they think things cannot get any worse, the Siddhus are burgled and Bubbles is sacked from his job. Eventually, this city life takes a toll on him and he has a nervous breakdown!

If you think the story goes all down hill from there…you’re mistaken. You need to watch it to know how it all turns out. Bubbles is excellent with his fantastic dialogues and expressions. Though there are 3 other characters in the play but you really don’t remember them much, its Bubbles and Behroze all the way!
