Play Review : Rishta Electronic Taar Ka
[The play was recently staged at the National Centre for Performing Arts (NCPA), Mumbai as a part of 'Aaveg' - Mood Indigo, IIT-B's platform for the MI'13 winners]
This play by the students of Mithibai College narrates the story of a young boy who is a geek by nature and fails to understand the basic human instinct of making relationships and through it, shows us how technology has taken over our lives.
Over three days, she manages to repair a few of Bhavesh’s soured relationships while making us realize the humungous amount of technology that has seeped into our private lives. Throughout the duration of the play, the storylinesmartly asserts as to how interpersonal relations have taken a backseat due to technology addiction. The heart touching story is supplemented by some delightful set designing, creative direction and earnest performances by the lead couple which has brought several accolades to this play.
This play was the runner up in the Third Bell competition at Mood Indigo 2013.
