On the third and the last day of CUFT, we had an incredible production of “Joke”. Written and directed by Makarand Deshpande, ‘Joke’ tells the story of Sandeep Joshi, a screenwriter who raises important questions about life and religion.
In our current situation, where religious fanaticism is destroying lives of millions, ‘Joke’ asks pertinent questions about our dealings of faith. It raises the important point whether we follow religious traditions because we genuinely believe in them or just because that’s how we have been brought up. It makes us think of the role of faith in our lives.
With a brilliant set and inspiring dialogues, this play combined entertainment with important content. The talents of the actors, Makarand Deshpande, Neha Joshi, Aseem Hattangady, Kshitee Jog, Sanjay Dadhich and Nivedita Bhattacharya gave the audience all that they came for and more
The audience was enthralled by the performances and icing on the cake was the interaction they had with the actors post the show. Makarand Deshpande’s beautiful insights on the world of acting and theatre left the audience engaged and mesmerized. . Keeping up with the variety of show, this Hindi play closed our festival with a memorable production.
Entre Nous Experiences certainly gave the Pune theatre lovers a theatrical treat which was much appreciated with the overwhelming response.
