Sutradhar is presenting Rangadhara Theatre Stream's 99th production - Main Rahi Masoom, a solo performance enacted by Vinay Varma and directed by Prof. Bhaskar Shewalkar. The performance is at La Makaan, Opp. GVK1, Banjara Hills, on 14th March.

The play is a biographical sketch of the famous Hindi and Urdu writer, the late Dr. Rahi Masoom Raza. The script has been compiled by Sutradhar from a 519-page Hindi journal "Abhinav Kadam" dedicated exclusively to the memory of Rahi, and from various sources from the Internet. Inputs from his son, Nadeem Khan, and his wife, Nayyar Jahan, also helped recreate the personality of Masoom.

This 70-minute monologue shows how Rahi detested communal and vote-bank politics, and how he fought against the divisive forces in the country through his writings. He was a staunch nationalist who was upfront against fundamentalists on both sides of the divide, and was brutally honest regarding the politics of hatred.

Rahi's journey begins on 1st September, 1927, in Gangauli, a village in the Ghazipur district of Uttar Pradesh. The journey ends with his vaseeyat in which he wills that he be laid to rest in the lap of the Ganga, who he considered his second mother. He passed away on 15 March, 1992.

In his career spanning 35 years, Rahi Masoom Raza wrote lyrics, dialogues and stories for various movies and television series. His high came with the telecast of the TV series Mahabharat that was based on the eponymous Hindu epic. Rahi, a Muslim, wrote the screenplay and dialogues for the TV series that went on to become the most watched in India.

Entry is by donor passes of Rs. 100 each, available at Sutradhar, Safron Strings (Rd. No. 12, Banjara Hills) and Occasions Paite Pooja (Kondapur, Madhapur & PG Road). Please contact Sutradhar at 98480-52541 for further details.
