Encounter in Umbugland expresses Tendulkar’s impression about the politicians and their politics with poignant sarcasm. It reveals that the very life of politics is falsehood and hypocrisy and that the political language is a completely dishonest one. As in India, in the play also, Democracy has become a synonym for autocracy or dictatorship. The play clarifies that one should not be true to oneself in politics. One has to become dehumanized.

Tendulkar chronicles and criticizes his time and, successfully blends social criticism and entertainment. He does not give any solution to these problems. He just holds up heightened reflection of society.
