Saimakhya Bharathi, in association with Chaitanya Art Theatres, is organising a theatre festival
from 7th to 9th February, at the Ravindra Bharathi auditorium. 5 plays will be staged during the 3-day festival. Veluthurlo Cheekati will be staged on the inaugural day. The play is written by Srisaila Murthy and directed by Mikkili Francis.
Veluthurulo Cheekati is a play centred around the print and electronic media. Through the play, Rasaranjani aims to highlight the real meaning of journalism and why the pen is said to be mightier than the sword. It aims to show the way media houses sensationalize issues to beat competition and to increase subscriber base. Francis as Murali Mohan, B Narayana as the critic, Samaikhya Bharathi Satyanarayana as Dharmateja and C Narayana Swamy as Jacob play the central characters in the play.
Samaikhya Bharathi and Chaitanya Art Theatres are two respected cultural organisations of the twin cities. Both are committed towards reviving theatre, and organise cultural events regularly.
Entry is free for everyone. Please contact Satyanarayana at 98856-73828 or K K Raja at 98852-81545 for further details.
