“Hosabelaku” – Prakasam lights up your lives again

 Play designed for community development and audience development around Kala Soudha all set to throw new light on the stage

About the play

“Hosabelaku” makes its way back to the stage. It is always a tough ask to turn a movie into a theatre play. Hosabelaku being a super hit movie of the all-time superstar Dr. Rajkumar, not letting anyone and anything down makes it a huge responsibility for the director and his team. Every time the play has been staged the audience walked out with the play in their mind and not so much the movie making the effort worthwhile.

 The play is very finely scripted by Chandan Shankar and P. D. Satish Chandra keeping in mind both the old and the contemporary scenarios in our social setup. Some of the characters have been transformed to be a lot more soft and subtle and yet cunning and meticulous as in the current scenario. Very few loud scenes and no over the top dialogues makes the play contemporary and was appreciated by people from both Dr. Rajkumar’ s era and the current era. This adaptation has characters in it which makes the play very theatrical and yet has the right amount of celluloid gimmicks – must say a good mixture of both.

 The play in all its performances has won the hearts of many theatre enthusiasts and introduced new audience to the theatre world.

 The cast: is refreshed with this outing and has some of the well-known names from the theater and small screen world. The Lead male is played by Khuldeepak Narayan, while Divya Karanth plays Vatsala the protagonist of our play. Raji Achar plays the step mom and Chandan Shankar is donning the henpecked husband’s role. Veda is played by Anunitya an old time prakasamite while new find Pavan plays Murthy.  Shruthi Raghunandan plays Latha, Nagraj her dad and Kaushthubh plays Vasu.

 About P D Sathish Chandra: PD Sathish Chandra of Prakasam Trust has been working with different theatre groups from India at different times. He currently runs Kengal Hanumanthaiah Kala Soudha as its Director and aims to run the place to encourage new talent and to bring out performances that are fresh and unique. He is currently acting as Paddu in Panduranga Vittala, a Kannada sitcom, on Zee Kannada. He is also known for his theatre columns in newspapers and with special reference to the Sunday reviews in The Times of India.

“Gandhiji in Bangalore” Photo Exhibition #MGRoad #Bangalore

“Gandhiji in Bangalore”
a curated show of Photographs & Text sourced from the book “Bengalurinalli Mahatma Gandhi” by Vemagal Somashekar.

Gandhiji in Bangalore

Presented by
Rangoli Metro Art Center

Gandhiji in Bangalore

A show comprising photographs of ‘Gandhi in Bangalore’ is being shown for the first time ever, in an art space. These photos, all in black and white, capture the colourful events of Gandhi’s five visits to the city before independence. The show is based on images and text in the book “Gandhi in Bangalore” written by Vemagal Somashekar, a Bangalore historian.

Shot by various anonymous photographers, they are mainly from various collections from NDRI (National Dairy Research Institute), Mahila Seva Samaj, Deenaseva Sangha & Vishwa Karnataka newspaper.

Gandhi is seen getting down at Yeshwanthpur railway station, visiting and staying in various places like Nandi Hills, Kumara Krupa guest house, visiting Indian Institute of Science and Imperial Dairy ( present NDRI). He signed in the visitor’s book as “A farmer from Sabarmathi”, shows how Gandhi related and adopted himself to the ambience of a given situation. All these and many more incidents have become precious photographic images, for us to store, watch and relish. The idea as to how the city was, the different period in which #Gandhi and Kasturba visited the city, are extremely nostalgic. The city itself appears in deviant light. Perhaps these photos unfolds tales of Bangalore before independence, as well as making of the Mahatma.

He visited the city to promote khadi (Swadeshi movement), to collect fund for Harijan Fund and address his own country men and draw emotional strength for the cause of Indian independence movement. In the due course, he visited several important and renowned institutions, which were already set in the city; as well as met personalities. These and other similar photographs, add to the ongoing enthusiasm to visually historicise Bangalore, from various angles. This series of images capture the city through the presence of no one lesser than the maker of the nation.

Vemagal Somashekar will be available at the venue to interact with the viewers all through the exhibition.
