Writing and Direction Review:
Writer-director-actor Puneet Issar has outshined the competition with sheer brilliance. Every aspect of this magnum-opus is pitch-perfect. Great Job!
Meghna Malik as Dharti maata sets the perfect mood for the play with her opening act. A mesmerizing performance with perfect pitch to set the graph high for what’s in store.
Sidhanth Issar, as the younger Duryodhan is a scene-stealer for sure. His volcanic performance erupts the stage with effervescent energy. You almost wish there could have been more of him. Issar Junior has surely made his father proud.
Puneet Issar’s towering presence, coupled with an action-packed performance makes this play an engaging trip. Having been part of B. R. Chopra’s Mahabharata for the small screen, Issar walks and talks the part with perfect ease, and yes with more gusto!
Rahul Bhuchar as Karn displays a plethora of emotions which speak volumes of a seasoned actor. His towering presence, with a baritone dialogue delivery surely wow the audiences.
Harleen Kaur as Draupadi emerges with flying colours. Right from the height of arrogance to a woman in despair, Harleen’s emotions are pitch-perfect and worth an applause.
Danish Akhtar as Bheem is surely someone who you wouldn’t miss out on. A perfect choice for this role and he does emerge as a winner on the acting front too.
Yashodhan Rana as Lord Krishna impresses you with the ethereal, intoxicating smile and reverent energy which is expected for this glorious role.
Surinder Pal and Gufi Paintal add their valuable support along with the other star cast.
The CG backdrops leave an undeniable, impressive impact on the scenes. The props add that glam effect, so do the costume styling which are gloss and in-tune with the Era. The musical score, immaculate lighting create a larger-than-life effect which engage the audiences.
