Bhupenda in Awahon

Many have written articles,poems and songs on legendary Bhupen Hazarika. And now, here is a play with Bhupen Hazarika as the central character, titled Bhul Nubujiba, Bhupenda (Don’t misunderstand Bhupenda), to be presented by prominent mobile troupe Awahon Theatre, in their 30th year. According to producer Krishna Roy, the play is going to be a major attraction. While the planning and concept of the play are by veteran film journalist-writer Pabitra Kumar Deka, it is directed by Abhijit Bhattacharya, who has also written the story. The theme is about a young die-hard admirer of Dr Hazarika, who forgets his miseries by listening to his songs. The story revolves around love, conflicts and tragedies of the youth. The play will cover a few popular songs of Dr Hazarika.
Another Awahon play for the next session is Ras, written by filmmaker-dramatist Munin Baruah. The story depicts family ties and the love, affection and understanding between two brothers and sisters. Another play, written by Abhijit Bhattacharya, is based on a girl’s deep love for melodies, which become an inseparable part of her life. The title – Nache Gaane Mohania Suranjana, indicates that the play is full of music and dance. The title role of Suranjana is played by Aaimee Barua. The participation of popular actor Mridul Bhuyan and award winning Aaimee in major roles is definitely a plus point for Awahon Theatre. They are going to be supported by a host of artistes, including Aditi Bhuyan, who got the best actress award for her performance in the widely acclaimed Ma, Deuta Aru Maina. Narayan Barua and Debeswar Sarma are in charge of music. Art direction is by Nuruddin Ahmed and lighting by Dipak Roy.
