Naatak Presents PARTY - A play in Hindi
The play describes a party at the home of Damyanti Rane, a wealthy patron of the arts, attended by the cognoscenti of Mumbai's "art world". Conversations among the guests by turns catty, outraged, resigned, and cynical expose their vanity, hypocrisy and insecurity. Gradually, the talk veers to the hero-in-absentia, Amrit, a promising writer-poet who has left the politics of the party circuit to seek justice for an exploited tribal community. In the harrowing finale, we finally get news of Amrit and learn why he is not present at the party.
The play was made into a 1984 film by Govind Nihalani, starring Om Puri, Rohini Hattangadi, Manohar Singh, Deepa Sahi and Amrish Puri, with Naseeruddin Shah in the role of Amrit.
