SICA (South Indian Cultural Association), in its golden jubilee year now, is presenting 2 popular Tamil comedy dramas at Ravindra Bharathi. Veteran writer and dramatist Koothapiran, and his troupe, will be performing Jeshtakumara and Abadhbhandhavan, on the 21st and 22nd of January, respectively.

On the 23rd of January, the troupe is enacting 'Abadbandhavan', a play written and directed by Koothapiran. 'Abadbandhavan' means Lord Narayanan, the remover of all Evils on earth, and this story revolves around the family of Visalam and Sethuraman, parents of one daughter, Mahalakshmi alias Maha.

In their search of a bridegroom for their girl, Maha's parents meet Susheela and Padmanabhan. Confusion and chaos prevail right from the time the bridegroom's family arrives in the railway station. Narayanan, a friend of Sethuraman, steps in to lend a helping hand to the bride and her parents, but the bridegroom and his parents misunderstand him and his over-enthusiastic interest in the bride's family, to even suspect him of being involved with the bride.

Narayanan turns out to be an Abadhbandhavan, showing that he is true to his name in helping the bride and her family in distress. The story ends on a happy note, and with a message that parents of brides also need to be treated courteously and with respect.

To many who have witnessed Tamil theatre in the 70s or in the 80s, Koothapiran is a name synonymous with humour and comedy. That in his long career spanning over 50 years, he has acted in as many as 5,000 shows, is indeed a rare feat and a commendable achievement. Recipient of numerous awards and titles, the latest being 'Nataka Kala Bhushan' in Dec 2008, Koothapiran is a living legend on the Tamil stage. The prestigious 'Kalaimamani' title from the Tamilnadu Government was conferred on him in 2002, and 'Sanmarga Prakasa Mani', by His Holiness, the Pontiff of Kanchi Kamakoti Mutt.
