Karachi: once it involves business theater in Pakistan, Dawar Mehmood is one name that faithfully goes to our brains. He has been making theater plays underneath his commonplace KopyKats Productions for quite an whereas currently and therefore the bigger a part of them have gotten basic and to boot business accomplishment. many cases incorporate preparations like Pawney fourteen August, Aangan Terha, Sawa fourteen August, Siachen.
Nonetheless, his latest play, HUM Kuch Yoon that debuted in metropolis shortly past, neglected to satisfy our needs.
Set against the Indo-Pak setting pre and post parcel, HUM Kuch Yoon takes you to a political and authentic voyage that starts from 1832 and spreads into eight decades. It takes when the romantic tale of Quratulain and Raja United Nations agency survive the Jallianwala Bagh prevalence and ar embraced by 2 distinct families. whereas growing up, the 2 go head to move on totally different occurrences, given their political contrasts, nonetheless land up changing into dispiritedly dotty with one another. In any case, it takes many smart and dangerous times antecedently the 2 at long last be a part of along, on the off probability that they ever do.
A large portion of the past plays, helmed by Dawar, were confined by the unimaginable Anwar Maqsood, United Nations agency is thought for his mind and mockery, which was one noteworthy clarification for his or her prosperity. whereas political parody, Bananistan (the play before HUM Kuch Yoon) was composed by a gathering of students, HUM Kuch Yoon has been composed by veteran craftsman Sajid Hasan. sadly, the content has escape clauses and is not skilled.
While we tend to worth all of the endeavors place into making a play in light-weight of the historical backcloth of the landmass with a fatal romantic tale at its core, tragically that the story required disingenuousness. From the sets to the wide cluster of performers United Nations agency created that huge look, everything was on purpose but the play lost its plot when the first an oversized portion of that was reached out finished hour.
With associate degree combination term that went recent hours with no break, the creation felt superfluously drawn-out and keeping in mind that we tend to were sitting tight for it to finish, it continuing for an added hour. a little of the scenes as well as the couple in adoration were strange and their discussions gave off a sway of being futile when a while.
What worked within the performance center creation’s support were the turns of phrase, particularly the political references to exhibit day Pakistan. the short set changes and wonderful acting skills exhibited by the entire solid and team should be lauded conjointly.
There were quite one hundred on-screen characters United Nations agency showed up before of associate degree audience, with the overwhelming majority of them trying totally different components simply. a little of the outstanding exhibitions originated from on-screen characters like Faraz Ali, Fareeha Raza, Saad Farukh Khan, Taha Humayun, Maria Saad, Mujtaba Rizvi, Adil Bangash among others.
The play, organized in metropolis ranging from Gregorian calendar month fifteen can keep running until March fifteen at the metropolis Arts Council.
