DD Bharati to telecast Indian adaptation of Russian play

NEW DELHI: Doordarshan’s cultural channel DD Bharati will telecast a Hindi play titled Pahunch Wala Aadmi, which is adapted from the Russian play A Man with Connections by Alexander Gelman.

The play will be telecast on 26 April at 6 am and 2 pm.

Directed by Bharti Sharma and staged by Kshitij Theatre Group, Pahunch Wala Aadmi is a poignant portrayal of the present times where people adapt to the inhuman ways, and the way society functions, especially in the corporate sphere.

Ajeet, the protagonist, is a victim of such situations. He is a person caught-up in the rat-race, all entangled up in the nets and traps of the corporate world. Manipulation, calculation and the lies overtake the simplicity and honesty of his character. He functions like a machine with absolutely no sense of right or wrong. It is finally Neena, his wife, who makes him realize his worthlessness and the heavy price that he had to pay to obtain this status. But, it was too late and he was left with nothing at all.

Sharma has proved her talent both as director and actress, by being able to bring out the inner turmoil, the sub text of the play in an effective manner.

Additionally, DD Bharati will also presents Oorja - Kathak by Shovana Narayan and Thumri by Kumud Diwan - at 9 pm on 26 April, with a repeat telecast on 27 April at 5 am and 1 pm. This a telecast of a recent performance of Padmashri Kathak danseuse Narayan performed to the tune of 'Kya din thay who... Rang mai dooba' through 'abhinaya', touching the heartstrings of the audience. The lively rhythms of Lucknow thumris resonated in the voice of Hindustani semi-classical singer Kumud Diwan, who was the co-performer for Oorja, provided positive energy. The concert was organised by the Indian Cancer Society.
