DOOSRA ( THE STORY OF CRICKET)
(A play in English)
Written and Directed by Anand Raghav
Executive Producer : Sathish Chandra
Two shows: 3:30 & 7.00 pm
Doosra’s protagonist is the Game of Cricket itself. The story of Cricket is depicted through the life of a 20 year old sportsman who gets selected to represent the country. The young cricketer’s paradigm driven by the forces of power, politics, money and pressure is essayed in the 100 minute play which , through its various characters, illustrates the metamorphosis of the game which over the years has grown from a sport to a mere commercial venture.
- a father who still believes in the values of the game,
- an obsessed fan with a love and hate attitude,
- a Captain who is victimized,
- a bookie who represents the darker side of the game,
- a Politician who patronizes the game for money,
- a cricketer friend who always sees the funnier side of the game
are few other characters through whom Doosra depicts the changing face of Cricket.
Doosra, with a very good balance of heart warming scenes , humour and powerful dialogues and unique technological adaptation will captivate the audience. Those who understand the intricacies of game of cricket will appreciate it even better.
Doosra received rave reviews from the Press and Public.
“The subject is new and the dialogue well crafted, scoring sixes quite often with punch lines. The writer-director propels the play forward with a strong stay at the crease and his team of actors is with him all the way” wrote the Hindu
” Worth watching for its appealing cast, humorous and witty dialogues. As the video footages of cricket is used in the play, one feels that one is watching cricket live “said Deccan Herald.
