Adapted from the famous comic melodrama “Happy End”, written and directed by Bertolt Brecht, Gangster samiti is set factiously in old Delhi area. The play showcases two opposing groups – a ‘Deadly Gangster’ gang and a ‘Samiti’ missionary group, with contradictory faiths and functions in life.
On one side the ‘gangster’ gang does everything bad to a normal living and on the other side the ‘samiti’ gang lives to do preaching, serving food to the needy & poor out of whatever they are able to arrange out of.
But how things go topsy turvy when the ‘samitis’ most sensible worker “laila” with her team enters the ‘gangster’ gang to preach the deadliest gangsters!
She falls in love with one of the deadliest gangster “billa” who is already on a run as he is a target of his own gang’s head “kaali billi”. ‘Billa’ is trapped by his own gang members for a murder which he didn’t commit!
As if that was not enough, there’s is a bank robbery, original lyrics & foot thumping songs, a love story & Hilarious rib tickling performances! How does all this pan out !
