     14An exemplary tale set in a middle-class artistic 
     15milieu inaugurating Nihalani’s long-term 
     16project of filmed theatre. Mrs Rane (Mehta) 
     17hosts a party for the recipient of a literary prize 
     18(Singh). The gathered ‘intelligentsia’ are 
     19revealed to be shallow hypocrites compared 
     20with the absent poet Amrit (Shah), who 
     21abandoned his literary career to become an 
     22activist among the tribals. The original Marathi 
     23play was criticised for its superficial depiction 
     24of the Bombay intelligentsia and the film does 
     25not really improve matters. Nihalani 
     26commented about the differences between the 
     27play and the film: ‘There is a major difference 
     28in the thrust. The play is concerned with the 
     29question of art versus life. The film goes a bit 
     30further and tries to see whether a person can 
     31have two contrary sets of morality: one as an 
     32artist and the other as a human being.’
