A dramatic unravelling of a seemingly happy couple's inherent incompatibility. Made all the more enigmatic because it's raining outside. Plus, because there's an insomniac in the house.

After successfully making its debut last year, the Hyderabad Theatre Festival is now in its second outing. Titled the Hyderabad Theatre & Short-Film Festival, it has been scheduled for 19th to 25th July, at the Ravindra Bharathi auditorium. A total of 7 plays and 6 short films will be screened during the week-long festival.

"Saari Raat", a 90-minute Hindi play written by Badal Sarkar and directed by Sunil Chandurkar, will be staged on the 4th day of the festival, the 22nd of July. It is a Bengali play written by the famous playwright Badal Sircar, and was translated into Hindi by Dr. Pratibha Agarwal. The play is about that 'one impossible night', and invokes certain basic values of life.

It is the story of a night and 3 characters - a husband, a wife and an old man. The play starts when the couple takes shelter in a broken down house on a rainy night. The owner of house is a mysterious insomniac old man, who lives there alone in his world of dreams.

As the night progresses, we get an insight into the couple's married life. Their seemingly happy relationship lacks mutual understanding. The husband is a practical man who considers his wife's philosophical and poetic outlook foolish and futile.

'Saari Raat by UDAAN’ can boast of having a brilliant and experienced team of actors. Saurabh, the founder of UDAAN, perfectly fitted into the shoes of a typical loving husband while Sowmya displayed the grey-shades in her character with élan. Actor-Director Sunil Chandurkar was stunning as the sagging eccentric old man. Parag Sathe, who also contributed in vocals, did an amazing job with the background score. His music certainly added the desired punch and a well suited flavor of suspense to enhance the overall feel of the play.

The play for sure succeeds in creating the intended curiosity as the plot seems to oscillate between dream & reality. In the end, it is left to the audience to decide if the occurrences were real or the woman had been dreaming it all.
