This Cineplay by Mahesh Dattani was an average experience. The comedy was lackluster, acting amateurish and the script had very little freshness to offer. Not engaging enough for an hour and fifteen minutes duration.
“Still and still moving” explores relationship between two men. An author in his 40s and a young college going guy. Along with these two characters Delhi-Gurgaon metro also plays an integral and somewhat comic role in the play.
The play depicts the life of Gandhari-The queen with a blindfold and mother of Kauravas, the villains in epic Mahabharata. Presented through Kathak on Guitar, this performance sets the tone for META 2015 (Mahindra Excellence in Theatre Awards) and we look forward to some great lineup of plays this year.
Man vs. machine / US vs. the world – An NSD student production “Civilisation on trial” deals with such sensitive issues in an abstract but comic and entertaining way.
LE CHANTS DE I’ UMAI is an abstract performance that combines chants, music and dance with technology. The audience were spellbound after the show.
Club Desire – Another offering from Bharat Rang Mahotsav 2015 talks about the fragile nature of relationships in current times. Living in metros and dabbling with love, career and family is challenging in its own and when one has to handle the insecurities of a romantic relationship along with that, things tend to go out of control.

Its not everyday that Delhi audience gets to see Shabana Azmi live on stage. After “Tumhari Amrita” which was staged quite some time back in Delhi Shabana Azmi performed again in “Happy Birthday Sunita” with an all NRI cast and crew at IHC. The play was a light comedy and had all ingredients and quality of a professionally done celebrity play.
