Second encounter with Plays

My office being stationed very near to Forum, it’s tough or rather impossible to resist myself from freaking out over there at least twice a day. One visit is fixed after lunch and the second one depends on the workload. Being an ex-IBM-er , it doesn’t look nice on my new company’s part to allocate hell lot of work to me . At least, every company owes this much to IBM ;)
Yesterday, in my second visit to Forum we had gol-gappes. Awesome!
Had it after a long time. Such good gol-gappes are definitely rear to get in Bangalore. Followed that by chocolate mousse in fabMall. One of my friends from IBM called me when I was having this videshi stuff after the theth deshi one. Yup, a call for a Play (Hamlet). Plays have always been a rare thing for me to access; so, there was not much for me to think about it except saying a yes. Hurriedly, I left the mall and followed my senior to reach the “Rangashankara”. A place specially made for showing the plays.
The play started with lights, mouths and mobiles off. Every body sitting in the hall were full of expectations and the faces were centered at just and just one place on the stage, where the only spot light was pointing to.And then entered the artisists.
Overall the play was good if not excellent. The script was of off course by “The Shakespeare” and some Hindi dialogues, translated by Harivanshrai Bacchhan.
But there were few things, which I would like to appreciate about the play. The director tried to give one of the most famous English play a touch of Hindi or rather Indian culture. There were a set of people (few) including the person, who played the role of Hamlet, were speaking in Hindi and the rest in English. The blend of the two languages was so perfect that even if a person is comfortable with only one language, will be able to get the whole play without any hassles. When everything including music is going on live and people behaving more natural, how can it be compared to some time old recorded movie with every artificial stunts possible and every second changing makeup? But play director was not happy enough with this. Just like the other directors of our Indian Cinema and Plays specially that of Bollywood, he also went a step further Indianizing the Angrezi things and spoiled the show. He introduced some of the Karnataka folk dancers in it.I don’t know what was the need of them in an English play, which has already been Indianized enough?? Good, that the play was taking place at a decent enough place, else we would have carried some of the rotten eggs and tomatoes with us and thrown at those fancy dress competitors. Being an immitator of Bollywood people, how can he forget to add some sensual, alluring and appealing stuff in the play? After all that is all, which is going to give popularity to his shows ;) There were some of the scenes, not really obscene (though, we wanted one to be there) but sexy enough. And it will be undermining to say that the people didn’t start imagining further then what was displayed, specially when the actions were live ;)
Looking forward to see some other better and sensible plays, which are more to my life than ‘Taxi no 9211’ and ‘Fight Club’.
