A political satire

Play


The play is a take on prevalent political scenarios, it also ensconces within itself a gentle love story. The lead character, the prime minister, is an unbelievably farcical character. Being a former actor and film star, he runs his cabinet much as a medieval monarch, with musicians and jesters in his office. The man who brought him to his seat of power from the stage is the home minister. A Machiavellian character who is, to his great alarm, slowly losing control over his own puppet, the prime minister.

The central event of the play occurs when the prime minister, in an emotional moment, proposes a vote of no-confidence against his own government. The man who faces the prime minister in the subsequent elections is a former first class cricketer Simha. A man who believes everyone is trivial before God and decides to plunge into politics, unable to swallow the plight of the nation anymore. Amidst high-pitched political battle, the home minister embarks on a love affair with media personality Megha. Does the prime minister survive the elections? Does Simha emerge triumphant instead? Does the home minister gets the girl in the end? That’s yet to be seen.

Written by Arjun Sharma and Harish Kumar, this play is directed by Suneel Raghavendra.
