Raju Raja Ram aur Mein: Play Review

Theatre never fails to surprise us. It is quite amazing to see how a group of people with much zeal perform in front of a live audience. On July 6, Mumbai’s theatre lovers got a chance to witness the Hindi adaptation of the Marathi play, Sahi Re Sahi, called as Raju Raja Ram aur Mein, starring Sharman Joshi. Written and directed by Kedar Shinde, Sahi Re Sahi is one of the longest running regional plays in India.

This season when comedies are ruling the box office, Raju Raja Ram Aur Mein brings in the same glee and extravaganza of a blockbuster comedy, on stage. Raju Raja Ram Aur Mein, is a story of mixed-up confusions. It follows the life of Madan Sukhnandani – an old but rich industrialist, his young wife and his loyal yet disloyal personal assistant. Trouble ensues when Madan discovers that his wife is having an affair with his PA. After much chaos, the wife accidentally ends up killing Madan. Conspiracies, confusion and hilarity, is what follows next. To make the situation more perplexing, three-look alikes of Madan Sukhnandani appear.

Director Kedar Shinde did an outstanding job once again with Raju Raja Ram Aur Mein. Although, in certain scenes you might notice some clumsiness, there is a lot to admire. The intimacies of the characters and stage is worth-mentioning. The characters are witty, exhilarating and inventive. However, the star of the show is Sharman Joshi. He is simply superb. It is not surprising how Sharman Joshi carried out the four characters with finesse. The comic-timing of Rajesh Bhosale, might look a little staged, however, as the plot develops, he syncs in.

Kedar Shinde also adds on political satire to the play. The emotionally-engaging and witty drama shows the duality of relationships. In the first-half, Shinde exploits the dramatic tension in aplomb, by the second-half the plots gets tangent and sags for a while, as the issues the play is catering to escalate. However, under the fine direction of Kedar Shinde, Raju Raja Ram Aur Mein turns out to be a highly-enjoyable and entertaining play.

If you enjoy watching plays with a perfect balance of humor and drama, you shouldn’t miss out Sharman Joshi’s comeback to theatre, Raju Raja Ram Aur Mein.
