Badlav is an original Hindi play written and directed by Amaan Ahmad. Badlav revolves around Gayatri, Kalpana, Radha, and Bindya. Gayatri wants change but her hypocrisy surfaces all the time. Meanwhile, Kalpana, a carefree girl always brings nihilistic values of life. Radha is air-headed and her naivety mixes with intuition and she is lost in her absurd thoughts most of the time. The play takes various twists and turns and touches the element of the Theatre of Absurdity. This psychological and absurd play has multiple rises and falls.
