I entered Prithvi Theatre, proud to be before time, only to be escorted to the last corner seat left. Excited children had bagged every seat, eager to accompany the bright Belgian reporter, Tintin, on his adventure.

The play amalgamates two stories in one as Tintin solves the mystery of a mysterious illness (The Seven Crystal Balls) and then travels to Peru to rescue a kidnapped Professor Calculus (Prisoners of the Sun). The common link being the Incas. A group of archaeologists return from the tomb of the Incas only to fall into a coma. Tintin, Capt. Haddock, Professor Calculus and the loyal little Snowy pay one of them a visit, who is guarding a mummy from the tombs. The mummy suddenly disappears, leaving behind a bracelet that the hard of hearing and extremely talkative, Professor Calculus gets a hold of. He is abducted to Peru where the infuriated Incas plan to execute him for insulting their gods.

The hot-blooded Captain and the adorable drunk dog, along with supporting characters, ranging from a songstress who can’t sing (Bianca), a couple of incompetent detectives (Thomson and Thompson) and a dandy South American (Zorrino) who uses dumb-charades to communicate, crack you up with their defining eccentricities. Special mention to Professor Calculus who would definitely have heard the peals he evoked.

The action sequences are sheer pandemonium and pivotal moments are aided with hip-hop music and even the now ubiquitous IPL tune. There is fair amount of audience interaction and the atmosphere is contagious.

This one is for the kids, and adults who still have the child in them.

Adventures of Tintin is part of the ongoing Summertime with Prithvi, showcasing plays, workshops, live events till June 27.

    I just wanted you and your readers to know that the premiere of the Tintin movie will be the 26th October in Belgium (Europe) and the 23th of December in the United States. I don´t know exactly why they decided to show the movie first in Europe and then in the US but that’s the way it is. I also heard that a Tintin game will be released at the same time as the movie. I am really excited to see what Spielberg made with one of my greatest heroes. Best regards Andres Wolf
