AGP World- India’s leading theatre production house re-creates the tale of undying love Devdas. Originally written by Sarat Chandra Chattopadhyay, the much-applauded novella has been transformed into a 150-minute theatre play. This romantic saga directed by Saif Hyder Hasan stars renowned actors such as Gaurav Chopra, Manjari Fadnis, Sunil Palwal, Sukhada Khandkekar, Bhavna Pani, Smita Jaykar and others.
Set against the backdrop of historically rich, old Calcutta, this rendition takes us through the unsolved mysteries of what happened to Chandramukhi & Paro after Devdas. In deference to the magnificence of 19th century Calcutta, the décor has been recreated in a manner that will certainly skip a heartbeat. Eye-catching visuals from the gas-lit busy streets of the era paired with the history of opulent Havelis in India are sure to delight you.
The play also highlights classic and contemporary fusion dance pieces choreographed by Shampa Gopikrishna (daughter of acclaimed Kathak maestro Padmashri Gopi Krishna) and Bertwin Ravi Dsouza, contributing to the spectacular theatrical experience.
Talking about the play, Ashvin Gidwani, Producer & MD, AGP World said:
“My love for theatre led me to create Devdas, the classic soul-stirring story of undying love. Bringing a 100-year-old book to life on stage for the first time in a Broadway-style production, while retaining its Indian essence has been an elevating experience. Come and experience the magic!”
Saif Hyder Hasan seems equally thrilled and came on record to talk about his excitement. Commenting on the same he said:
“Truly it isn’t easy to narrate a journey that has been experienced by audiences for decades.”
With utmost precision and commitment to deliver a performance of a lifetime, AGP has added another golden feather to their cap.
