I went for ‘Evam Indrajit’ today only because it was Sunill’s play.
And Sunill plays Zebra in my movie.
I wanted to watch him act on stage cuz I’ve never ever seen him perform on stage before (I had cast him after an audition and I had no clue then of how popular he was or how talented he was!)
But today, I know why he’s so popular!
He’s such a natural. When I auditioned him, I thought he was just a little loud for the camera, but today when I saw him, I was super impressed with his performance!
More than his performance, I loved the collective effort put into this thought-provoking play which looks at That Four Letter Word: Life.
It looks at life from the point of view of a writer and his protagonist Indrajit, an individual who was becoming a regular standardised living being, arrested by the drudgery of life. The beauty of the play lies in the fact that it is cynical and optimistic at the same time.
Mike’s sets were very simple yet super effective. The actors indeed seemed to be one of us delivering performances which were quite realistic and lines quite spontaneously.
