The adaptation is however set in the context of India-Pak border crisis closer home where Kapur and Shah have played the roles of the negotiating neighbours from the Indian and the Pakistani sides respectively. In the peace advocating state of Switzerland, they first meet to find themselves completely closed to the demands of each others' governments but as months rolled past, the negotiators – now friends – found agreeable terms in their governmental policies. But as the historic rival governments would have it, the months-long talks did not come to fruition despite efforts from both negotiators.
Hooda and Rashid's adaptation from the original is a seasoned effort with politically correct yet massively witty dialogue execution. Both Shah and Kapur's performances could put Blessing's original cast in a spot, while Ratna Pathak Shah's able direction ensured that no minute of the play went stiff.
