Event Description : Film Screening of "Making Of A Tamasha", A film by Sanjay Maharishi,
Making of a Tamasha was filmed in 2010 with student actors of the National School of Drama in the small town of Baramati, Maharashtra. The film is part of a series of films that chronicles the working method of contemporary theatre directors. These films were made keeping in mind young as well as veteran theatre practitioners, directors and actors on one hand and theatre enthusiasts and aficionados who may not be directly practicing but form an essential part of the audience.
In the film, the students work with director Aniruddha Khutwad and put together a widely appreciated performance of the Tamasha play Sanya Bhaye Kotwal. The film explores the physical, cultural and mental landscape of the director, his major influences and his way of dealing with challenges in form and content of the Tamasha.

The screening will be followed by a discussion with Sanjay Maharishi and Aniruddha Khutwad. This is the first of the three-part series on Indian humour traditions.
