LAHRON KE RAJHANS – A War Inside - A Review of Stage Play

LAHRON KE RAJHANS  – A War Inside -  A Review of Stage Play by Hemant ‘Him’
(in Kalidas Rangalay, Patna on 22.08.2014)

Commitment of man (or woman) is never perfect. So much as it is, that very much it isn’t. A man always lives in a state of dilemma.The charactaer of the play somehow tries to show his blind love to his beautiful wife just as to maintain a harmonious relation with her. The beautiful wife thinks she is so charming that his husband will come back to him even after meeting the super-charmer  Gautam Buddha. Husband goes to Buddha and undoubtedly doesn’t forget eroticism of his wife even while getting his hair cleared from head. He take initiation of Buddhism reluctantly before Tathagat (Buddha) just because of courtesy as he is a step-brother of Tathagat (Budhdha). The man comes back to his house with a pretention of begging for alms and meets his wife. His wife is shocked seeing the tonsured head of his husband. The wife, being follower of aestheticism  rejects  his husband as he does not look attractive any more. The husband clarifies that he is disinterested in her as well. He further reveals that he felt infatuation for his wife while taking ‘deeksha’ (initiation) of Buddhism but now when he has come back to the wife, he feels attracted towards asceticism. The husband leaves his house and the wife feels deep consternation.

My suggestion : As the drama required show of inner feelings and conflicts to the extreme,  more and more dialogues should have been delivered from the front of the stage making the facial expressions more visible to the public.

The play is highly classic one written by legendary dramatist Mohan Rakesh. The language is  replete with Sanscritised Hindi. The purity and  Indianness maintained in stage set up and decoration is remarkable. Shadra Singh was able to bring the inside story of conflicts out straightforward to the public. And the main character Sundari played by the director herself was brilliant. Suman Kumar playing Nanda was also superb and Uday Singh (Maiatray), Shyamanag (Bhikshu) did justice to their character. Vinita Singh (Alka) and Shashank (Sunil Kumar) had many dialogues and delivery was up to the mark.
