Pratham Partha by Buddhadeb Basu

Buddhadeb Basu (বুদ্ধদেব বসু), was a versatile writer who wrote novels, short stories, plays and essays in addition to poetry. He is recognized as one of the five poets who moved to introduce modernity into Bengali poetry.

A narrative of grand proportions – the city of pearls shall be in for a treat as the city based bengali association gears up to host the riveting audio play, Pratham Partha, on February 11, 2018.

Pratham Partha

It is no mean feat to convey a story or the nature of a character through just one’s voice; more so when the tale to tell is that of a legend’s trials and tribulations from the epic Mahabharata.

In what can only be described as a large scale version of listening to the Thakurmar Jhuli, Buddhadeb Basu’s play, Pratham Partha, brings to us the story of how Karna defied the sharp, yet cunning Krishna’s persuasions, Kunti’s pleas, and Draupadi’s advances in the battle of Kurukshetra, unwilling to betray his friendship with the Kauravas.

It is the powerhouse of actors that shall truly make the drama come alive in our minds and that is certainly the case with Biswajit Chakraborty donning the role of Krishna, Raya Bhattacharya as Kunti, Anjana Basu as Draupadi, and Debshankar Haldar as Karna.

Having enthralled theatre enthusiasts at Singapore Utsav, London Panchamukhee Durga Utsav, Dakshin Kalikata Sansad (DKS) and Calcutta Club, the city of Nizams is next in line for this captivating production.
