    Default Shabana leaves the audience enthralled

    One actor, no fancy setting on stage, no costume change, no action. Yet Shabana Azmi's 'Broken Images' has you glued on to your seat for an hour, taking you to the complex world and psychological mind keeping you engaged till the end. The play, which was part of the ongoing Times Pune Festival at Nehru Memorial Hall, had the crowd waiting in anticipation.

    Even though the play was delayed by an hour over a technical glitch, the crowd's enthusiasm knew no bounds when Shabana walked on to the stage. The play written by Girish Karnad and directed by Alyque Padamsee had Shabana essay two roles; Manjula and Malini rather two facets of one character and the constant dialogue between them though a pre recorded video.

    Through the play you realise that it is the relationship between her and her image, and at no point can you say that the image is actually her, her conscience, or whether it is her younger sister Malini, who used to write in English, but was paralysed from birth. The emotions, timing and histrionics on stage was unparalleled.

    The audience rose to a thundering applause at the end of the play. Shabana interacted with the audience and spoke about the challenge and the impeccable timing that she had to keep in mind. Of course, the actor also asked the audience as to who would they sympathise with in the end. Was it Manjula or Malini? She also thanked the audience for an overwhelming response. She later tweeted saying 'Thankkkku all for keeping the faith and sending me good vibes. It worked. behad shukria.' (sic)
