Directors note: Mixing live dance, live music, live art, live shadow play and of course the acting was much challenging !!

Each and every sector is entangled into another, so I was always keen on, the amount of salt I put !!

The perfect mixture was what I was aiming at.

We had an interesting plot, we had an interesting script, but getting this all into a 30 × 40 stage, with only a span of 45 mins was tough!

I was trying to make it more grand, more lovable and moreover more entertaining. The script had a strong statement with may undercurrents, now the play needed a strong presentation and a beautiful package. Working on actors, getting the dance, music ready, working on shadow play, and the set was an enriching process.

Set always helps direction, it gives more spaces which I developed into. The overall impact, the quality of every sector and a pretty powerful presentation.
