Samudra Manthan is a fictional story on the lives of Gujarati Kharwas. A play that promises cinematic experience in a drama. A never-seen before production in Gujarati Theatre. With the grandeur of elaborated dances, haunting melodies and power-packed performances, Samudra Manthan promises romance, action and suspense, all just in 2 entertaining hours.
It is genesis of a Nakhuda, the term used for a captain of the ship in Kharwas. A churning in the mid sea that brings out all the Navarasas of human emotions. A play that just doesn't stop at being a Gujarati story but has the most universal appeal.
