Event Description : THEATRE : Picturewale presents 'Bali Aur Shambhu' Hindi Comedy Play.

Bali aur Shambhu is a play that evokes the cliched description -'bitter- sweet', but there is nothing cliched about the play itself. It is not very easy to write and direct a story that can make you laugh even while tugging at your heart. Manav Kaul though, manages to pull it off with refreshing ease.
On the face of it, the story has a 'been-done- before' feel to it. The story of two geriatrics who are forced to share a room in an old age home. One surly, another cheerful. Gunraj Singh playing the surly Shambhu who keeps losing his temper at every little thing that the gregarious and zestful Bali (Elvis Chaturvedi is doing). A bulk of the play concentrates on the interaction between the two of them, as Shambhu goes from threatening
to murder Bali to becoming his friend.
What makes the play different is the fact that this is just one part of the story. There is another aspect - that of Shambhu's dead daughter Titlee (By Rukhsar Khan) who keeps making 'dream-appearances' right from the
first scene. As Bali and Shambhu's friendship progresses, we are also gradually revealed the story of Titlee.
Kaul has managed to weave the 'Shubhankar' (By Pankaj Singh Kaintura) factor into the script very cleverly, and keeps giving the audience clues about it/him at regular intervals. 
Kaul's story mainly deals with two very diverse factors. One, how old age is one's second childhood. This is put across beautifully through the almost child-like fights that Bali and Shambhu have, right from arguing over the positioning of the bed to jocularly blackmailing each other. Secondly, how parents are often childishly stubborn about not accepting the reality of their little children having grown up. This is amply underlined by
the fact that even after Titlee's death, Shambhu still dreams of her and converses with her as if she is a little kid who wants to listen to fairy tales. It is by deftly mixing these two factors that a play is created which can alternately make you laugh and cry.
Whoever thinks old-age or retirement homes are dreary and depressing places, should watch this play to understand that the other side of 60 could be a happier place too.
