Though the central character has been portrayed by several actors since the inception of the drama in 1962, Prabhakar Phanshikar's performance remains the most memorable. "Toh Mee Navhech is probably the first play in the world where one actor has the enact five different roles, not merely to add to the novelty value or as a gimmick, but because of the demand of the story. " Toh Mee Navhech" was also among the first Marathi plays to make use of the revolving stage between two scenes.<BR><BR>Storyline:<BR><BR>The play focuses on a common man - Lakhoba Lokhande, who clams to be a tobacco merchant from Nipani. The drama begins with a courtroom scene in which Lakhoba Lokhande is sitting in the defendant's box. He has been accused by the prosecution of swindling different women through disguise and fraud. The prosecution lawyer presents many witnesses; most of whom are the victims of Lakhoba's embezzlement (and in some cases torture and murder). Few witnesses narrate their experiences with the defendant through flashbacks. Lakhoba runs his own case after firing his lawyer. He cross examines the witnesses and during the process pleads his innocence by saying "Toh Mee Navhech".<BR><BR>
