Javed Siddiqui’s SHYAM RANG, Opens At Prithvi
Part of our folklore since time immemorial; one of the greatest love story of all times is that of Shri Krishna and Shri Radha. This theme has inspired several artistes over the years, in painting, poetry, dance and music, creating works of invaluable art.
What happens when two divine lovers meet for the last time in this mortal world, years after they shared an extraordinary relationship?
Javed Siddiqi, the eminent playwright and scriptwriter tried to understand and analyze this intriguing phenomenon, and after several months of research came up with SHYAM RANG. The love legend of these two star-crossed lovers in this play has become a compassionate quest into the poignant saga of desire, denial and devotion. An interesting interplay of illusion and reality, the play is also a meditation on the nature of love in its various facets, through a prism of perspectives.
Javed Siddiqi’s eloquent and enlightened writing brings an epic alive. His writing is supported strongly by lyricist Gulzar, who has penned two songs for the play.
The play opens at Prithvi Theatre Juhu on 25th March at 9 pm and will be followed by two shows on 26th March at 6 & 9 pm. Directed by Salim Arif the play features Harsh Chhaya, Lubna Salim, Nilu Dogra, Anangsha and Rajiv Kumar.
