As a part of the ongoing five-day theatre festival titled ‘Syed Mohidul Islam Memorial Festival’, Jalpaiguri-based Indian troupe Anami Theatre Centre staged its play ‘Ar Ekti Premer Galpo’ at the Bangladesh Shilpakala (BSA) in the capital on Sunday.

Paying tribute to noted Bangladeshi playwright, actor and director Syed Mohidul Islam on his 17th death anniversary, Batikrom Natya Gosthi has arranged the festival.

The play ‘Ar Ekti Premer Galpo’ revolves around an affectionate relationship between a student named Shankha and his teacher, Topotir. Shankha, at his tender age, feels lonely because of his mental retardation. Suddenly, he feels love for his school teacher, Topotir.

The teenager regains the natural rhythm of his life through the daily interactions with his teacher. Topotir also feels affection for her student Shankha. At one point, they lost each other for a minor misunderstanding. Time passes by. Shankha finds his teacher Topotir after 33 years. They become nostalgic when Shankha meets Topotir at her residence. The duo realise they still feel affection to each other.

In the course of time, they again lost each other as Shankha dies while returning from the residence of Topotir. So therefore, the name of the play ‘Ar Ekti Premer Galpo’ refers to this affectionate relationship between the teacher and her student.

Directed by Proloy Bhattacharaya, the role of Shankha is played by Kinsuk Bose and Topotir’s character is enacted by Madhuparna Ray.

Director Proloy Bhattacharaya requested the audience to watch theatrical productions. He said, “I would like to request the audience, please come to the theatre hall and enjoy plays. If the audience does not watch the dramas, the industry will be endangered one day.”

Former cultural minister Asaduzzaman Noor, thespians Lucky Inam and Jhuna Chowdhury, among others, enjoyed the play as special guests.
