What Others Say: Bikhre Bimb

Posted on Nov 13th, 2009 by Shuchi in Ranga Shankara, What Others Say, Solo Acts

Bikhre Bimb Arundhati Nag Girish Karnad’s Bikhre Bimb must be the most talked about Indian play on the net. No surprise there. This Rangashankara production has seen more than a 100 shows, has been enacted in different languages ( ‘Odakalu Bimba’ in Kannada, ‘Broken Images’ in English), and has travelled to many cities. It has won awards such as the META award for Best Playwright (Girish Karnad), Best Actor (Arundhati Nag), and Best Director (Girish Karnad and K. M. Chaitanya.

So, I have a whole range of good commentary on the play to link to – but most of the reviews reveal the plot. If you haven’t seen the play yet, I would urge you to watch it without knowing the story beforehand.

After you’ve done watching the play, do come back and read through these articles:

From ‘Spaniard In The Works’: The author of this well-written piece is not a fan of theatre in general but is pleasantly surprised by Bikhre Bimb.

Mumbai Theatre Guide Review: Written by the editor of Mumbai Theatre Guide, this article touches upon interesting details within the play such as the lighting and the joke about theory-based exams.
