Nati Binodini – Bengali Play.

October 24, 2016

Nati Binodini – Bengali Play
by Smaranik, Bengaluru

PlayWright: Rajat Ghosh
Director: Sayandeb Bhattachaya

The play revolves around the life of the famous South Asian actress, Binodini Dasi (1862 – 1941), also known as Nati Binodini, who was born to prostitution, started her career as a courtesan and at twelve played her first serious drama role. Later she started performing in Calcutta’s National Theatre, under the mentorship of its founder, Girish Chandra Ghosh. As the play moves forward introducing several acquaintances of Binodini, it slowly takes a steep turn and brings into light the sacrifice, pain, betrayal, and misfortune of the famous actress. Although she was referred to as the ‘Flower of the Native Stage’ and ‘Moon of the Star Theatre’, the drama brings in the truth of Binodini’s life and shows how the mentally devastated actress left the stage at the age of 25. Blessed by the saint, Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa, Binodini tried to attain the wisdom and peace, which finally gives the play a new perception.

‘The play preserved the original spirit while adding a few insights. The final result was quite absorbing. What stood out was the inspiration that the cast had obviously derived from history.’
– The Statesman
