Bali Aur Shambhu
January 21 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Description- Bali aur Shambhu is a play that evokes the cliched description -‘bitter-sweet’, but there is nothing cliched about the play itself. It is not very easy to write and direct a story that can make you laugh even while tugging at your heart. Manav Kaul though, manages to pull it off with refreshing ease.
On the face of it, the story has a ‘been-done-before’ feel to it. The story of two geriatrics who are forced to share a room in an old age home. One surly, another cheerful. Gunraj Singh playing the surly Shambhu who keeps losing his temper at every little thing that the gregarious and zestful Bali (Elvis Chaturvedi is doing). A bulk of the play concentrates on the interaction between the two of them, as Shambhu goes from threatening to murder Bali to becoming his friend.
Whoever thinks old-age or retirement homes are dreary and depressing places, should watch this play to understand that the other side of 60 could be a happier place too.
