Always wanted to know the history behind Bollywood, but never found the time away from our books to do so? Then there’s something to look forward to after the end of this semester.
Celebrating 100 years of Indian cinema, Evam will be in town to provide you with raucous laughter and a time of hilarity with their production, Bollywood Kee Maa.
Directed by UK based Gavin Robertson, this play pays a comical tribute to Bollywood and “every other Wood”. If art is the mirror of society, and Cinema is the most popular art in India, then here’s a play that tries to capture India in 70 minutes – the method, the madness and the magic of it on stage.
The world of the rich father, his poor friend, the business magnate, his corrupt manager, the blind widowed mother, the U.S. returned heroine, the vampish stepmother, the forbidden love, the quest for revenge, the super villain and his abandoned lair, Mother India and twists in the tale. Ram and Lakhan, Vijay and Basanti, Shashi Kala and Shakti Kapoor, Samba and Ramu Kaka, Mac Mohan and many more residents of Ramgad come to life before you in this mother of all films. It will definitely be a high octane fun play.
Show date: 14 December 2013, 4pm & 8pm
