Hyo Maza Shivaji Haay

Hyo Maza Shivaji Haay

Drama | Marathi | Age 16+


In Maharashtra, the dialect of Marathi language keeps on changing after each and every mile. All these dialects technically come under the Universal umbrella of Marathi only. However, as these dialects are not frequently used in day to day business or economic activities or conversations in Urban/ City areas, the so-called Standard Marathi (Praman Marathi) is used and is known as the purest form. People speaking this Praman Marathi are supposedly considered educated and sophisticated. This belief sometimes creates an unnecessary inferiority complex in most of the people coming from non-urban areas of Maharashtra with their own pure but different dialect than Praman Marathi.

In our play, the person playing the character of Shivaji Maharaj, uses this Praman Marathi, burdened with multiple complex paraphrases, adjectives because this is how it’s been portrayed since many years. Our protagonist, a shy and poor boy who is been speaking his so-called non-pure form of Marathi, shows an interest in playing the character of Shivaji Maharaj. People across the village and even his friends do not approve this. Rather he is criticized. This play depicts his struggle against the establishments and his journey towards achieving his dream despite of all the hurdles. This play “Hyo Maza Shivaji Haay!! “which has a social lining is however presented in a satirical way with some black humor.
