Plot Characters

Rajeev: At the age of twenty-two and having completed his under-graduation in engineering, Rajeev is fresh out of college and works for an MNC. A cheerful, young lad, he was the kind who used to make friends easily. Hailing from a very rich family and with poor upbringing, it is easy to label him as a spoilt brat, and that isn’t too far from the truth. Rajeev started smoking heavily, right after college. His parents tried talking to him and begged him to stop smoking, but to no avail. In a moment of rage, Rajeev decided to leave his house and stay at an apartment nearby. Rajeev calls Sanjay and they both decide to stay in an apartment together.

Sanjay: He had been Rajeev’s best friend growing up and also happened to work in the same city as Rajeev. A charming playboy in college, Sanjay could use any trick in his bag to woo a girl. Dark and muscular, Sanjay has always been the kind of person who would turn heads no matter where he went, be it his college or his workplace. Sanjay was on a lookout for an apartment as his previous landlord had asked him to vacate the place, because he used to bring a lot of girls over, causing public nuisance.

Mrs. Kranti Chopra: Has a thick North-Indian accent when she speaks. She is a middle-aged woman who has been living alone in the apartment from quite some time now is looking for occupants for the apartment. More than the rent, she wants someone to talk to. Her husband suffered a heart attack recently and passed away. Mrs. Chopra is yet to recover from the loss of her husband. When he died, she blamed herself for it, causing quite a scene at the funeral. The couple had no kids and that is starting to have a telling impact on Mrs. Chopra’s life now. She feeds the pigeons in the apartment and prays for most part of the day. One can never see her without her lips chanting some prayer or the other. She hired a servant to run the house and help with cleaning the dishes and washing the clothes.

Mr. Karthik kumar: He has been working in a law firm for ten years now, starting as a junior when he was twenty-two. He is regarded highly among the lawyers’ community and has won several cases for the firm. Karthik is a workaholic and looks forward to each day’s work with great enthusiasm. Karthik married Harini, the love of his life and had to tackle a lot of problems in order to convince his parents to agree to a love marriage. First seeing her when he was twelve and she being ten, they became fast friends. He then proceeded to fall in love with her, and told her and there was no looking back since then.

Karthik stays in the house next to that of the Chopra’s and has a feud with their family owing to a few physical and verbal abuses thrown at him by Mr. Chopra for no apparent reason. Being a vindictive man, he wants Mrs. Chopra to suffer from loneliness and has been driving away anyone who wants to be a tenant in their apartment.

Mrs. Harini Karthik: A mother of twins at the age of thirty one, Harini had her hands full with life, in general. An alcoholic father didn’t help, either. Her mother had ignored her ever since she had been taken into another household, so she had started resenting her mother. Her life essentially involves taking care of her two children.

The selected teams will have to enact their respective scripts submitted in the previous round.
The use of props on stage is mandatory.
Each team will be allotted a stage time of 15 minutes, empty stage to empty stage.
