The Play :
Hinsa Parmo Dharama is a story about how a society, deeply divided by the concerns of religion, try to poison an innocent mind, to misuse a mans very existence for their own well being, and to make religion both a weapon and an armour to provoke communal abhorrence amongst all. It is about how Jamid, free and unconcerned of the ways of the modern society, is woven into a political "chakravyhua" by the religous leaders of the city, where the only way out is "hinsa". Its about how Jamid, still begs for communal harmony and a healthy society for the coming generations, till violence takes over him too and in a fit of rage he finally breaks this chakravyhua only to realise his own blood-stained hands.Is hinsa really our ultimate dharma is what the play seeks ??
some memories from the play:
- Our very hyderabadi Raheem came up with mind bogling phrases like "Mai khadunga tab karunga"
- Talli was the only successfull contender in shuting up our hyderabadi hero by a constant "Achha raheem phir kya hua"
- In the after-play video Prat came up with his (in)famous humor on "mein kutta hoon .. bhau bhau"
