Chorus as the name suggests speaks about the common people. Chorus is a play which tracks the social, political and cultural scenario of West Bengal from 90s till the present time. It is primarily a satire and the device used is the distancing effect or Verfremdungseffekt. It is a take on how a state manipulates its citizens and uses them to promote their ideology, analogous to how the director or the group treats it's chorus in a play. It is this chorus in general or in theatre groups (which is being used as a metaphor) who run the show. Like executing and following all the orders seeping down from the top. It is the chorus which makes a state or a ''dada'' of a theatre group supreme but in return they remain mere numbers. They don't have any voice or identity but are an integral part of the socio-cultural, political fabric. Chorus tells the story of a common man, Hero who gets entangled in this wave of chorus politics and finally is knocked down. No one remembers him as every day we lose many heroes, who become filed as statistics.
The play is a live musical in a gamut of colours and vibrancy. It's an out and out comedy interlaced with songs and dance. The texture of the play somewhat echoes the aesthetic of 90's commercial Bengali cinema.
