                 The scholars provide the characteristics of Modern Realistic drama as –
1-Characters of Modern Realistic drama talk and act like real people.
2-The setting of Modern Realistic drama should be real
3-The setting of Modern Realistic drama should be from real places as home, workplaces etc
4-The setting of Modern Realistic drama should be from modern times
5-The subject of Modern Realistic drama should deal with real events, and political, or social issues
                              The modern Garhwali drama ‘Andrtal (अन्द्रताळ)’ is definitely modern realistic Garhwali drama. The drama deals with the subject of suffering of migrated Garhwali family. Birju is fifty years old migrated Garhwali who sold his ancestral house in Garhwal and built a house in Delhi. However, the land was illegal from legal point of view and Delhi administration sent Bulldozer to diminish the house. Birju, his wife Basanti and their son are in turmoil. The sadness does not end here. The police take their son Nandu to police office and get unmarried Nandu operated under completing the government target of  ‘family planning-nasbandi’.

             Ibsen is the father of European realistic modern drama.  Ibsen the father of European realistic modern drama wrote a letter to August Lindberg (August 1883),”The language (of modern realistic drama) must sound natural and the form of expression must be characteristic of each individual person in the play…”
  The characters speak their own cultural language in the realistic modern drama ‘Andrtal (अन्द्रताळ)’. As
 The dialogues of Birju are
1-अपणि भुजिं बुखण छन . बुकौण पड़लि
2-मुंड्यूँ  बल , जग तर जावोअध्--मुंड्यूँ कख जावो ...
3-- अरे राम . अब मटि फिरद  इन्नी फिरद . पुरखों कि छोड़कूड़ी बेचई बिसौब यियींकूड़ी
पर लगाये .किनमजाद खम्बुदारतिबारी छै .
Or
Birju- हमुन बोले कान्च्दार मकान  सुन्दर 
Or
Basanti- ज्यूडि फुके गे पर मरोड़ नि गे

Or
मोचीकाम मोची ----काम --
बसंती - क्वा मौ  ? हम छा दादा सबळि -खाटळी का
                     The realistic modern Garhwali drama ‘Andrtal (अन्द्रताळ)’ definitely provides the illusion of recognizable reality. The realistic modern Garhwali drama ‘Andrtal (अन्द्रताळ)’ is capable of providing contemporary perspective.
                     The drama ‘Andrtal (अन्द्रताळ)’ shows the tragedy of migrated Garhwali family effectively and compels the audience/readers to think about the sad situation of such migrated Garhwali family.
