Manoj Siva’s Kanthi illustrates the conflicts a woman endures in her life and love, her dedication for its consummation and the betrayals encountered, which finally marks her downfall. Kanthi ,the imaginary character who is the embodiment of the spirit of freedom , liberty and women’s emancipation against social evils finds these ill fated women and leads them to a new world where there is equality in relationship and love without betrayal, which is the ultimate freedom.
The play progresses with enacting segments from some of the much loved and super hit female oriented Malayalam films. Cinema is used as a medium of expression with skilful application of Remy Bertrand Bertrand’s imprology techniques’s in theatre acting.
The songs and dance segments featured in the play are recreated with hardly any changes from the original films to give the audience maximum delight and a chance to relive the bygone times they saw on screen.
The highlight of this much appreciated play is the high standards displayed by a group of highly motivated amateurs. Nurses, students, pharmacists, and many other professionals from different walks of life all over UK , have put their forces together to accomplish one man’s dream – of portraying ‘Kanthi’ where man and woman complements and completes each other with their love and equality.
“We dedicate this drama as a loving homage to the fond memories of our beloved Kalabhavan Mani, a great actor ,musician and a greater human being,” Manoj told Asian Lite.
Vbeats UK, KCWA and Saroja Visual Media cordially invite you to the theatre extravaganza of Kanthi, a musical drama in Malayalam.
