JAMMU: Natrang presented Balwant Gargi’s famous comedy play ‘Kabab Mein Haddi’ in Sunday Theatre series at its studio theatre, here. The play was directed by Balwant Thakur.
‘Kabab Mein Haddi’ as the name suggests is a story of one intruder between two lovers. Naseem and Safdar are two college friends. Naseem is in love with Jameela. Both are post-graduate students studying in a university. Jameela is putting-up in the girls hostel whereas Naseem and Safdar are living in a rented accommodation. Despite having engaged they hardly find any space and avenue to meet each other to share their feelings. Jameela’s hostel warden is very strict and hardly allows her to move out and this side, Naseem’s sticky friend Safdar hardly leaves him alone. Both have been shown making attempts to meet each other but in vain. Mustering courage and pulling in all resources they plan their outing on Friendship Day.
The movement they step-out, Safdar makes his un-wanted entry and offers them to escort them throughout their outing. Both try to convenience him that they can move on their own but this foolish friend is not ready to buy their arguments and forcefully accompanies them. The real comedy unveils here when Safdar spoils their every precious moment by intruding between them by creating funny situations. His intrusions irritate them and the moment he sees that they are irritated; he tries to be closer to them with the intention to ease out tension and conflict between them. Finally they get an opportunity to meet but the same is spoiled by their sincere friend. In fact Safdar sincerely wants to help both but his over whelming concern creates dramatic turns in the story. Wherever he is not required he will suddenly make his entry and would turn the whole situation.
This play was presented in a beautiful manner by the young actors of Natrang. Shivam Singh as ‘Naseem’, Brijesh Avtaar Sharma as ‘Safdar’ and Meenakshi Bhagat as ‘Jameela’ played their respective characters with full confidence and professional ease. Neeraj Kant executed the lights and Bhisham Gupta rendered the music. The show was coordinated by Mohd. Yaseen and Mihir Gujral did the presentations.
