Mosambi Narangi, starring Rajit Kapoor and Ajeet Singh Palawat, is a tale of 'extras' in Bollywood
A rural town nestled in the ghats of Banaras is turned upside down when a major Bollywood blockbuster, Isaq Banaraswala descends to shoot their movie there. Obsessed with the glitz and glamour of the movie industry, to be a part of an actual film with song and dance with the heroine, Sabrina, is like a dream-come-true for the townspeople.
The play explores the trials and tribulations, the expectations and disappointments of Mosambi and Narangi who are chosen to be extras in the film. Narangi has just closed down his video shop and has great aspirations to get his own script made into a film. Mosambi has recently returned from Bombay and is enthralled by the beauty of the movie’s leading lady. As our two innocent protagonists struggle to understand the functioning of the Hindi film business, the make-believe glamour of Bollywood quickly fades away and the reality of being extra kicks in. The disparities between ‘reel life’ and real-life become apparent. This play will transport the audience to the chaotic world of Mosambi and Narangi and their tragically amusing journey.
Directed by award-winning theatre director Mohit Takalkar and starring Rajit Kapur and Ajeet Singh Palawat, this play is about hopes and broken dreams, complete with oddball characters, witty humour and emotional turmoil.
