One of the most memorable works of ‘Cho’ S.Ramaswamy and specially written for the small screen, this play was very popular when it was telecast in the late 80s.On a broad canvas, it successfully re-creates the turbulent times of the Indian freedom movement with its epic dimensions. It chronicles an important phase of our history and stirs a patriotic feeling in us by reminding us of the sweat, toil and sacrifice of countless individuals. The characters are lifelike and dialogues highly incisive and thought provoking. ‘Cho’ essays the role of an eccentric alcoholic lawyer, certainly the best in his career, who lashes out at the rank hypocrisy of the elite with utter disdain. This play also vividly describes the overall impact of the colonial regime on the social, cultural and political fronts and the emotional conflicts it triggers amongst individuals.
A must for not only Cho’s fans, but also for all those who love this nation.
