“Ask me, just ask me! Pucho zara pucho! It’s punishment for falling in love!”

Kamala wants her daughter Rani to marry successful but emotionally awkward businessman Raj. Rani bristles at going down the conventional route and arranges a test for Raj. She convinces her cousin Sita to swap places and pretend to be the suitable bride – unaware that Raj has come up with the same scheme with his driver, Nitin!

Actor Nigel Planer (The Young Ones, Filthy Rich and Catflap) brilliantly updates Marivaux’s classic French farce to a modern Asian family in England, employing Bollywood song and dance to delicious effect as class and passion clash when Rani meets Raj.

Directed by Jatinder Verma and Designed by Claudia Mayer
