BWW Previews: CHAKRAVYUH at Andrews Auditorium, Bandra
There have been a few characters in the history of Indian television that have gained cult status not just because the powerful roles that they played but also because of the unique personal touch they imparted to those important roles. Nitish Bharadwaj as Krishna played one such character in television series Mahabharata.
Today after 25 long years of that role immortalized forever in the minds of Indians, Nitish Bharadwaj makes a comeback in his cult avatar of Krishna again.
Bharadwaj will be seen playing lord Krishna in a play titled Chakravyuh.
Presented by the India Coconut Theatre and The Films and Theatre Society the play is the gripping story of the thirteenth day of the great battle of Mahabharata. The play explores the episode of the killing of Abhimanyu in Chakravyuh formation and all the questions, myths, ideologies and convictions related to it at many levels. Written and performed in the form of verses, this play works as a bridge between history and present and connects them both with perennial concepts of Karma and Dharma.
Towards the end Krishna appears and settles all questions, myths, and misunderstanding of every one present. He also faces the disrespectful questions of Duryodhan and settles them with grace upholding the law of Dharma.
