Barasun a Play by Shahjahan Hussain.

Barasun a Play by Shahjahan Hussain.
Yesterday evening 30- Aug- 2018 saw a play “Barasun” at Jawahar Kala Kendra, Jaipur. Written and Directed by Shahjahan Hussain, Sound was by Himanshu Vyas and Costumes were by Mumal Tanwar. 

To start with I am not an expert to critic a play but just sharing my views as a viewer. If we talk about the technicalities of the play everything looked perfect to me, the sound, light, costumes everything was perfect. The acting of all the actors was good except for two insignificant glitches in the play of 70 minutes. On the whole the play looked perfect but there was just one problem that I faced. 

I was puzzled till the mid of play that what is this play all about and what does the director wants to say? By the end I got it, that ok it’s a dark play about how influencers had & are manipulating and divided the humans from the beginning to stay in power. Shahjahan Hussain has written and directed his idea in a form of jigsaw puzzle, you have to keep all the scenes in mind and then have to solve the puzzle to understand what is it all about. The problem is that to understand these types of play you need full concentration which is hard to attain at a theater. If this would have been a movie and I would have been watching it late night undisturbed then I might would have liked it. But in the form of play where most of the audience reached unaware of what they are going to face this was very heavy.

Below are few Glimpse of the play.
