Hamidabaichi Kothi


By MTG editorial

Vijaya Mehta's classic play staged 33 years ago has been successfully revived by actor-turned-producer Sunil Barve. Back then Mehta had not only directed the play but also played the title role in it. Neena Kulkarni, Bharti Achrekar, Ashok Sarad, Nana Patekar and Pradeep Velankar had played the younger parts in the play so convincingly that it went on to attain a cult status.

The play set in the post-war era when film music records were gaining popularity and the traditional kotha singing was fading and its patronage was dwindling. Against all odds, however, aged singer Hamidabai had retained the traditional singing in her once-buzzing kothi. But the changing times and altering fortunes have pushed Hamidabai into an abyss of adversities from which she never recovers.

Following her demise, as her collegian daughter Shabbo returns to the kothi - she is harassed by the local goons. To save herself from the pack of wolves around her, she relents to marry Lukka dada, the gully gangster. But can that drastic step save her from the morass of prostitution? The play analyses the loss of a cultural tradition.

In its revived avtar, the play will have only 25 shows.
