This is IPTA’s longest running play and has recently completed 50 successful years. Featuring seasoned actors, it is a timeless play that people watch again and again.
Shatranj Ke Mohre is a satire, subtly told on many levels through the protagonist Kakaji Bakshi and the antagonist Acharya Ram Bhajan. The play tells us of the values dear to both, Kakaji and Acharyaji, and how in the stream of their thoughts other characters get thrown in, are tossed about and finally resolve their own struggles either through self-realisation or by the reactions of others.

The play talks about human-pawns who revolt, as they have done all along, under complex circumstances. What is good, what is evil, is not to be decided by someone outside you and it is the duty of each one of us, to bring the less knowing to a level where he or she can take independent decisions.
You possess what you want, you only have to know what you possess.
