Amar Akbar Akoori is a hilarious Gujarati play meant not just for the Parsi community, but to be enjoyed by anyone who speaks the Gujarati language. The play is about a Gujarati, a Bohri Muslim and a Parsi, who are staying as paying guests in the house of a Parsi widow, Mrs. Pinto. The problem is, neither of the three are ready to pay any rent. So Pinto makes them do the housework in exchange for a room. The landlady is dead against this as non-Parsi paying guests aren’t allowed in a Parsi building. The play takes you on a roller-coaster ride as all three try and portray themselves as Parsis.
Written & Directed by Meherzad Patel
