New Delhi: From thrillers to slice-of-life narratives to comedies to social dramas, teleplays cover a whole gamut of the quintessential human experiences with something special for everyone. Here is a December playlist where you will find both timeless tales and potential favourites.

Sir Sir Sarla

Makrand Deshpande’s much-loved classic, ‘Sir Sir Sarla’ is the story of Professor Palekar and his student Sarla � the pretty, innocent young girl who seems to be enamoured by her mentor � and Phanidhar who shares a love-hate relationship with the professor. The play explores the bond between the students and their professor, which faces many ebbs and flows. Secrets are revealed, accusations are thrown, and the three lives remain interwoven for many years to come. The teleplay stars Makarand Deshpande, Aahana Kumra, Sanjay Dadhich and Anjum Sharma.

Ladies Sangeet

Radha is to wed her beau Siddharth at her ancestral home in the hinterlands while her enthusiastic family members and their wedding planner are trying to make the wedding resemble the ones in Bollywood!

Saleema’s mundane life is disrupted after an unexpected visit from Salma who claims to be her sister-in-law. As the plot unfolds, both the women share the miseries of their respective lives caused by the same man � Junaid, Salma’s brother and Saleema’s husband. Together, they decide to do put an end to their suffering. What in fact transpires changes one of their lives forever, but not in the way that she had expected.

This teleplay is based on a youthful, visually impaired man who chooses to live away from his over-protective mother. He forms a close friendship with his neighbour (an actor) who is set to essay an unusual role in a film.

A comedy that many Indians will relate to, this play is a laughter riot. It stars Nirmiti Sawant, Milind Phatak, Dharmaj Joshi, Rahul Kumar and Sayali Sudhakar.
