Early Times Report
JAMMU, Feb 11: Natrang showcased a gripping new Hindi devised and improvised play titled 'Short Cut' at the Natrang Studio Theatre, as part of its weekly Sunday Theatre series. Directed and devised by Neeraj Kant, the play delved into the complexities of human nature, deceit, and eventual retribution.
'Short Cut' unfolds the story of a young couple embroiled in a web of deception and greed, as they resort to robbing people in a desperate bid to attain overnight riches, only to face the consequences of their actions.
The play commences with a heated altercation between the couple, Kajal and Akash, over dowry issues. Kajal expresses her frustration over her husband's occupation as an animal doctor, lamenting the false pretenses maintained about his profession. Amidst their quarrel, the sounds of slogans and drumming from the locality fill the air, setting the stage for unforeseen events.
Enter Vibhu, bearing the news of his acclaimed success as a doctor, flaunting his newfound wealth. Kajal's envy and resentment towards her husband intensify as she compares their modest lifestyle to Vibhu's ostentatious display of affluence. Unwittingly, Kajal reveals the whereabouts of her hidden jewelry, sparking a chain of events that unravel the deceitful schemes of Vibhu and his wife.
As the plot thickens, the true colors of Vibhu and his wife are exposed when they attempt to rob Akash's clinic under the guise of seeking medical treatment. However, their nefarious intentions are thwarted by Akash's vigilant brother-in-law, leading to their eventual apprehension by the authorities.
The Natrang production featured stellar performances by young artists including Mehak Singh, Anand Verma, Vishal Sharma, Chaitanaya Shekhar, and Vandana Thakur, who brought the characters to life with their emotive portrayals. The lights were expertly designed and executed by Neeraj Kant, with seamless coordination ensured by Mohd. Yaseen.
'Short Cut' serves as a poignant reminder of the consequences of deceit and the timeless adage that karma spares no one. Through its compelling narrative and stellar performances, Natrang continues to enthrall audiences and provoke thought on the complexities of human nature.
