Mera Woh Matlab Nahi Tha | Starring Anupam Kher & Neena Gupta | Directed by Rakesh Bedi


Mera Woh Matlab Nahi Tha was an absolutely outstanding play to say the least. It takes you through the ‘rollercoaster of life’ as Mr Anupam Kher very aptly says himself. Team MissMalini got to witness the magic unfold on stage, and we weren’t disappointed! Amongst many things, here’s what we absolutely adored about the play:

1) The music was lovely! It reminded Malini (Our Boss lady) a bit of the Mary Poppins soundtrack :)

2) Rakesh Bedi was hilarious as the curious jogger!

3) Also Satish Kaushik is the bomb – he makes you want to call him and ask if he can intimidate people for you.

4) Neena Gupta and Anupam Kher are phenomenal. They have brilliant timing and evoke so much emotion.

5) Some of the moments were heart-breaking and they made Malini go home and immediately call her parents!

6) The garden set was beautiful.

7) Neena Gupta did an outstanding job playing Nigar (considering she made her comeback to theatre after 9 years)!

8) The play had a great balance of comedy and tragedy – bitter-sweet while heart warming and heart wrenching at the same time.

9) The cast got a standing ovation (and were very deserving)!

10) Speaking of cheering, we spotted a proud grin on Anupam’s brother, Raju Kher and Masaba Gupta’s faces! Such an ‘Awwww…’ moment <3
