Cut Cut Cut
Director: DR M SAYEED ALAM
CutCutCut is a Tragedy of Comic Errors: It is the story of a Director from Chennai rehearsing a Hindi play written in Urdu with a cast comprising actors from various castes, colours, classes and creeds -- a perfect example of Diversity in Unity. Everything that can go wrong during the rehearsals of a play, goes:On the eve of the final performance, the lead actor gets a Big
Bollywood Break and leaves. A Chowkidar fills in for him. Belonging to Mathura, he bridges the gap with his Braj Bhasha. Over emphasis on Urdu forces the actors pronounce Jaleel as Zaleel and those who cant pronounce Urdu well utter Zang Rodhak Cement as Jung (war) Rodhak Cement. Briefly speaking, it is the only play that makes
you laugh in as well as at a play
