Critics says About play-
'Ek Mamooli Aadmi' is one more milestone in Asmita's engaging
repertoire of meaningful theatre.
-Nikhat Kazmi (Times of India)
Meaningful production..Another feather in the cap of director Arvind Gaur. -Kavita Nagpal (H T)'Ek Mamooli Aadmi' is an excellent play with a lot of humour , lot of life's reality
-Smita Nirula (Pioneer)
About a common man...but no common play this ….Ek Mamooli Aadmi is certainly not a ‘Mamooli’ play…. Full of humour extracted from life’s reality, Reflecting on various aspects of the society, the play takes a dig at the superficial relationships of the present day. Aptly exposing political and social attitudes and people’s priorities, it poses a fresh set of questions on lifeAt the same time, it shows how meaningful productions like this can not only draw audience but entertain them too, as appeared from the response of spectators at Sangeet Natak Academy where it was staged on Tuesday as part of Rang Sangam suggested so.
- Mohd Arshi Rafique, Indian Express ,Lucknow
The play is built around the protagonist Umesh's curiosity to find out why Brahmins had refused to participate in his father's 'tehrvi' ... Arvind's production is excellent... innovative...
-Romesh Chander (Hindu)
Written by Ashok Lal and directed by Arvind Gaur (अरविन्द गौड़), the play is a deeply moving description of the travails of a middle-aged clerk who knows of his impending death. Reserved, reclusive and politically correct Ishwar Chand, decides to do some unusual things before dying. The acts are not a result of angst or deeds of rebellion, Ishwar just wants to savour another life, paint a new picture of himself for his own viewing. His escape from reality is a challenge to that very reality. Death becomes a motivation for pleasure; he wants to please others, see others happy, and make others fulfilled
