It was the treatment of the script that truly elevated this play to a whole other level. The maturity, restraint and empathy with which the subject matter was handled was remarkable. This could easily have turned into a high-pitched melodrama but it’s a great credit to the director and the actors that it never did. Restraint can be a precious commodity in Indian theater and it was great to see it being exercised here."

It felt a little like looking at a black-and-white photo of a multi-color Holi celebration of life - where the stronger colors all appear only as black. Life is more complex than black and white. Now, is that the 'man' in me thinking... is that the sophisticated urbane in me denying existence of black in parts of the worlds I dont know much about... both.... Well, the play makes you think for sure."

Although the play's title seems to suggest that wishes will be abided, whatever they may be, that is surely not Nadira Zaheer Babbar's intention in doing the play JI JAISI AAPKI MARZI...

According to her, "From the earliest of times, women have been trampled, their conduct questioned, judged and reprimanded..." Her play is therefore about giving women the space to speak so that they can erase the silence that they have been condemned to bear.

Babbar insists that her play is not sensational and hopes that her characters will touch the souls of her audience. Babbar also claims that her play is more than a feminist movement and that if sections of the audience "identify" themselves with the characters, the effect is purely intended and not accidental.

In short, this is Babbar's saga on women's lib!
