Rashmirathi

(2)

Written by Padma Bhushan awardee Shri Ramdhari Singh Dinkar, the epic describes key events of Mahabharata through the character of Karna, the Rashmirathi. First-born of Kunti, Karna was the strongest and bravest among all the warriors. Also, in my opinion, the most ideal among all the characters in Mahabharata. He suffers through his life and dies, for no fault of his. Born out of wedlock, he is disowned by his mother shortly after his birth. His teacher curses him because of his caste. Lord Krishna himself cheats him to ensure victory of Pandavas. He is killed unarmed by arrows of his own brother, Arjuna. His perspective is unique, raises several moral questions, all written in beautiful spirited words of Shri Dinkar.

Original work is mesmerizing and enthralling, and I will strongly recommend the readers to read the original, whether or not they watch this play. It would be better, though if one reads the original work before this play. The words cut through the ears to impact the soul of the readers. It is simply amazing.

What is even more amazing if the portrayal of Karna by Imraan Khan. The energy that Imraan puts into the character is astonishing, borderline psychedelic. The diction is flawless. In fact, I wonder if anyone else could have delivered the central character of with such authority as Imraan has done. It is absolutely real real tough for someone to remember such long poems, and then, recite them with such clarity. The performance was simply stellar! Other characters are also done their part well, the stage is decorated aptly. The dress designing is particularly good work.

The play is a must must watch, if you understand Hindi. The performances are not very frequent, hence I will request the readers to book tickets as soon as they get a chance.
