Hindi play 'Adhe Adhure' staged
12/5/2018 8:52:56 PM
Early Times Report
JAMMU, Dec 5: Yamini Culture Society Jammu today staged Mohan Rakesh's Classic Hindi Play Aadhe Adhure under the direction of Veena Dogra at Abhinav Theatre.
The play was staged as part of ongoing ADDF-2018 organised by Jammu & Kashmir Academy of Art, Culture and Languages, Govt. of Jammu and Kashmir.
The play revolves around the era of sixties, a time in socialist India ridden with industrial strikes, and Mahendra (played by Umesh Singh, who also portrays four other characters with finesse), is a broken man; the old patriarch whose house and family are now at the mercy of his youthful and always-at-his-throat wife Savitri (played by Kanchi Khajuria). Savitri is the bread winner with her own aspirations and desires that keep her entertained and the husband out of the house.
The failed hero has more trouble in the family, in the form of a run-away elder daughter Binny (Ayushi Khajuria), who is now back home after a strife ridden relationship with her husband, a jobless son (played by Shubam Singh), who is yet to come to terms with the system, and an adolescent school going daughter (played by Garima Sharma), who likes reading Casanova stories and indulges in dirty talk with friends.
The story unfolds on a meticulously designed set reflecting the incompleteness, a house in a state of mess and decay and where the problems are as elusive to comprehend as the solutions. For the first half of the play, one struggles to find the root cause of Savitri's diatribe against her husband, and what went wrong with Binny's marital relationship. The members of this family are in a state of perpetual emotional turmoil, and for the entire duration of the play, one crisis moves the plot to the next one. There is something in the air of this house that is wrong, we learn. The underlying causes do emerge in the second half of the play, with shocking revelations.
Other actors who also gave notable performances included Shubham Singh, Garima Sharma and Ayushi Khajuria. Set designed by Nikhil Singh, executed by Veerji Sumbli, music by Umesh Singh, costumes by Sunita. K. Thakur, lights by Abhishek Singh and Pankaj, production Manager Siddhartha Singh and props by Chanchal Dogra. Gautam Singh was Assistant Director.
