Hamare Padosi is an Indian adaptation of Russian playwright Anton Chekhov’s seven classic short stories. Each story is slice of life depicting myriad human emotions. Yet, the common thread that binds them together is the essential conflict between “What should be” and “What is”.


The stories are seemingly transparently simple. Yet, with great subtlety and clarity Chekhov remarks on various institutions such as marriage, parenting, bureaucracy and medicine, and offers glimpses of human emotions of insecurity, namelessness, confusion and pain.


There’s comic relief and there’s tragedy. Sometimes tears follow laughter, at other times laughter follows tears. But there are classic Chekhov moments when tears and laughter come hand in hand.



  • In The Sneeze, the employee suffering from an intense bout of sneezing cannot apologise enough to the general who is his boss, and then believes that he himself has been humiliated.
  • In The Governess, an employer tricks a subservient governess out of 8- per cent of her pay.
  • The Seduction shows a vile man using a husband as the conduit to seduce the husband’s wife.
  • The Drowned Man claims to be in the “maritime entertainment business” and will “drown” for a small fee.
  • The Defenseless Creature features a clever wife who wants money from a banker, threatening him with a curse if he refuses.
  • In The Arrangement a father takes his shy 19-year-old son to a house of ill repute, then realises that the son will no longer be a boy.
