Vijay Tendulkar this September with 3 of his powerful plays on Tata sky Theatre

Playwright Vijay Dhondopant Tendulkar is credited for rewriting the narrative in Marathi theatre with plays that not only shook the essence of social beliefs but also boldly and beautifully borrowed inspiration from real-life. Almost all his plays raked up enough noise, often in controversy and always in praise. Zee Theatre which has a repository of over 80 plays is celebrating some of Tendulkar’s best works on Tata Sky Theatre. Let’s have a look at what is in store on 11th, 12th and 13th of September.

Sakharam B

Vijay Tendulkar’s one of the most controversial plays, Sakharam Binder was staged some forty years ago. Zee Theatre’s modern adaptation of the play which dwells on violence, morality, the existing male-dominated society is based on an egoistic cop and his take on women, especially those forsaken by society. In the play, Sakharam is found caught in a power struggle between the conventional Laxmi and the aggressive Champa. The play is directed by Nikhil Mahajan and stars Nachiket Purnapatre, Anuja Sathe, Chitrangada Chakraborty, Chandrashekhar Dutta

Khamosh Adalat Jaari Hai

This play is an adaptation of Tendulkar’s Shantata! Court Chalu Aahe.  The story which is a simple and engrossing one begins with a theatre group that plans to stage a make-believe play in a village. This make-believe however slowly turns into the grim reality when real stories come out in the open. Issues such as gender discrimination and time-worn social customs take center stage and the actors forget that it is just a play.   The play is directed by Ritesh Menon and stars Nandita Das, Saurabh Shukla, Swanand Kirkire, Yusuf Hussain, Pravina Bhagwat Deshpande, Rajeev Siddhartha, Ajitesh Gupta, and Abhay Mahajan.
