What Others Say: An Idiot For Dinner

Posted on Aug 28th, 2009 by Shuchi in What Others Say, Evam

For once, The Hindu (Bangalore) has more compliments for a play than me  (psst, they’re usually hard to please. See this and this for proof) . They are full of praise for the lead actors of “An Idiot For Dinner”, especially Sarvesh Sridhar,  and call it a must-watch play.

“An Idiot for Dinner” was engaging and the fact that it was showcased as a movie earlier, does not take away from the fun quotient. The sets and props were well done.

Read the full piece here.

It’s a pity that none of the other mainstream newspapers/news websites  carry play reviews. They may have play announcements or post-event pictures, at most a small summary (which is clearly provided by people associated with the play – all papers carry the same ad-like write-up), but no considered opinion piece.

  2. Hi firdous,

    Sure, I’ll email you.

    Your name rings a bell. Do you happen to share your name with the director of Mahesh Dattani’s ‘Bravely Fought The Queen’, or are you the same person?
