- “Sadhobar Ekadoshi” play was written by Dinobandhu Mitra in 1866. In this play, he has portrayed the wrong-doings, injustice, alcoholic, womanizing nature of the West influenced Young Bengal group, the ‘Babu’ community in a sarcastic comedy. His characters are based on the high educated and semi educated young community of Kolkata in the 19th century. His young male characters are mostly affluent, but characterless and addicted to alcohol and women. His pivotal character is Nimchand, who is a strong representative of the highly educated, wise, talented individuals in the mid 19th century society in Kolkata who has not got their deserved recognition. So Nimchand keeps himself drowned in alcohol and spends time with his alcoholic friends and their mistresses to hide his agony and frustration.
- The play begins with Nimchand and Nakul, two friends drinking alcohol and discussing about the No-Alcohol community, when their friend Atal, the only son of a rich man, arrives there. He is married but is interested in keeping a mistress. He, although reluctant at first, goes on drinking alcohol offered by Nimchand. Just then the beautiful prostitute Kanchan joins them and starts flirting with Atal. Atal decides to keep Kanchan as his mistress. The play goes on through different situations as a consequence of this decision.
