Various facets of life

Drama festival

The Press Club of Bangalore held a drama festival on the occasion of completing 45 years recently. The three-day event was inaugurated by Jnanpith awardee Chandrashekara Kambar and Sadananda Maiya, MD, MTR Foods Ltd.

On the first day, the popular Kannada comedy play ‘All the Best’, directed by Yashwant Sardeshpande, was staged. The play revolves around three friends — Chandru, Dilip and Vijay. While one can’t hear, the second one can’t speak and the third one is visually-challenged. These three physically-challenged people fall in love with the same woman.

The play has been a huge hit and the troupe has staged over 1,000 shows across the State.
On the second day, Kannada play Uttarabhoopa Beechi directed by Archana Shyam was presented. The play, which is the stage adaptation of Kannada humourist Beechi’s column in a magazine, is known for its one-liners and the message given out by the writer.

The play, which has been performed before packed houses, is considered to be one of the best comedy plays in Kannada.   

On the last day, Rabdi, a play directed by Nithish, was staged. The play is about the lives of software  professionals and the difficulties they face while handling their family problems.

While the first two plays were humourous, Rabdi takes a serious look at the problems of present generation. The event was open only to the members of Press Club and their families. Altogether, nearly 700 people attended the shows.
