Beewion Ka Madarsa

What: ‘Beewion Ka Madarsa’ produced by Balraj Pandit & Surekha Sikri is based on Moliere’s 14th century classic ‘ECOLE DE FEMMES’ or SCHOOL FOR WIVES.

The beautiful and comely Husnara is now 16 and Haneef Mohammed’s wedding plans are underway when they are rudely interrupted and the fruits of his labour seem to be falling into another lap. But Haneef Mohammed has the advantage of age, experience and money and with his doubtfully devoted servants meticulously sets out to outwit this young upstart of a suitor. Directed by Atul Mathur.
