Mrs. Manorama Bakshi of Bride And Prejudice is back in action in a role with fewer histrionics, and this time she has graver things on her mind than getting her daughters married off. That’s right, we are talking about Nadira Zaheer Babbar here, and she plays a character of great intensity as Begum Jaan, an extremely popular yesteryears classical singer. This play has been staged around India, eliciting rave reviews.

The two other characters with Begum Jaan are her grand-daughter Zarina (Juhi Babbar) and a journalist, Sanjay who wants to dig up her life for a sellable story. Javed Siddiqui, the author of Begum Jaan, focuses on the intercourse between the three as a source of a moving commentry on the changing face of India.

From the dying legacy of Hindustani music, to events in Begun Jaan's personal life, the canvas of the play is wide.

So enjoy the star-power under the star-studded night on the lawns of Chowmohalla palace, the venue for this event. Donor passes for Rs. 100, Rs. 250 and Rs. 500 are available at various points around the city.

The play was really good with great performances by Nadira and Juhi. The background score was amazing with well chosen ghazals and music from Begum Akhtar and Bade Ghulam Ali Khan. However, the audio quality left a lot to be desired, with dialogues not being audible almost till the intermission. The organizers could have done a much better job. There was also a big delay in the start of the play and the intermission which was scheduled for 10 mins dragged on for more than half an hr, mostly due to the people in the invitees section roaming around and not being in their seats. Overall, a good experience.
