Play Review - K Balachander's Pournami

K Balachander has made a come back to stage play, drama with "Pournami". I watched it yesterday in Narada Gana Sabha.

Lot of chennai's celebrities were present as it was 3rd performance like news reader Varadarajan, Actor Y G Mahendran, Musician Rajesh Vaidya . Veteran KB was also present along with audience.

The play Pournami dwells on one family and its exposure to one political act, and how the family rises to the occasion. The play is bit serious and deals with contemporary issue - Indo - Pak relationship. It is two hour long play.

Dialogues are powerful and simple. One single set is used through the play and it is quite good. The lighting is very impressive and reflects the various moods of the characters. Performance of the artists is good and i liked the son "sundar's" role very much.


  1. It has been ages since I've been to a tamizh play. The last was an S Ve Sekhar one I think...

  2. Deepu, Initially i was not liking the experience. But over the period, i developed some interest.
