Would you choose the theatre over a movie? If yes, then you would not be able to resist yourself from watching this legendary play called Dopehri, it is played by Pankaj Kapoor who is one of the most talents actors in Bollywood. The best part about this play is that it is a one-man army show i.e Pankaj Kapoor is giving a solo performance in this play. Can it get any better?!
A dramatic rendering of the novella by the same name, written by Pankaj Kapur two decades ago, ‘Dopehri’ doesn’t make for a conventional drama. Pankaj Kapur’s one-act play is a solo performance as good as a theatre master-class. You will forget the technicalities as soon as he begins narrating Amma bi’s worldly tale of the loneliness that comes with old-age.
Pankaj Kapur makes you work hard; he intricately explains to you the dimensions of a “Laal Haveli” in Lucknow whilst you begin to imagine the emotions it encapsulates.
Kapur’s understanding of human nature, its doubts and fears, reflects in the way he rounds off each character, adding nuances and subtleties that only a story-teller of his calibre can achieve.
