JAMMU, Apr 23: ‘Barf Ne Kaha’, a play in Hindi was staged here today at Natrang’s Studio Theatre in its weekly Sunday Series. The play has been written by Sarweshwar Dayal Saxena and directed by Neeraj Kant. The dialogues of the play were filled with meaning and depth which made the watching experience distinctive for the audience.
The action of the play happens in a hospital ward where a soldier is undergoing treatment for his wounds which he suffered during fierce war with the enemy. He was indeed the only soldier of his battalion who could survive and the foundation behind his survival is faith, positivity and hope. What could make someone keep-going even in hostile situations and that too all alone has a deeper psychological meaning which was presented in the play through the mindset of a wounded soldier. His words seem to get merged between the aisles of conscious and sub-conscious mind, sometime even touching un-conscious mind. The conversation between the patient and nurse reveal myriad colours of life before the audience, most of them were dark. At the threshold of life or death, swinging between different thoughts, the soldier dreams about what had happened with him while he was protecting his post with the help of limited man-force and insufficient ammunition. The situation gets worse as one by one, everyone in his side was killed and he was left alone with a single bullet in his gun which he wanted to shot in his own head to avoid being captured alive but even at that very point of time, he could see the immense beauty of the distant snow covered hills which inspired him to stay hopeful and motivated him to fight till the last breath, this worked for him and not only he could survive but also saved his post from being captured. Hopelessness, hopefulness and a huge gap between these two opposite spheres were efficiently presented in the play.
Natrang actors who acted in the play included Yash Manhas as ‘Patient’, Aman Kapoor as ‘Nurse’, Bhisham Gupta as ‘Doctor’ and Akshit Kaul. Another highlight of the play was its Sets which were innovatively designed by Brijesh Avtaar Sharma and Bhisham Gupta. Music was operated by Brijesh Avtar Sharma and the lights were executed by Neeraj Kant. The show was coordinated by Sumeet Sharma and Mohd Yaseen.
