Amol Palekar is back after 25 years into theatre for the play Kusur (The Mistake), adapted from the Danish Thriller film Den Skyldige, to be performed for a limited period only. Watch the legend perform a thriller, a never seen ever before experience; for the first and last time in Kolkata.
It all begins on a rainy night... when retired Assistant Police Commissioner ASHOK DANDAVATE volunteers his service at a police control room. As the hours go by, anonymous residents of Mumbai seeks help. With a trail coming up the next day, he gets a call from a woman who he believes has been kidnapped and despite being warned not to get too emotionally involved, that's what exactly he does. The night presents us with a series of twist and turns, while the end unearths the truth in a way that leaves us holding our breath.
When DANDAVATE exits the control room, he says, " I'm indebted to this night.. Good intentions alone don't absolve us of our sins. Thank you Kaveri for helping me realise this."
The taut plot with its excuisite setting gradually unravels the mystery. The elaborate sound design is a character in itself, disturbing our complacency and overturning our assumptions. While excavating the rich subtext, the audience isn't permitted to be a mere distant, passive onlooker.
The Mistake takes us on a claustrophobic and thrilling, yet emotional and impressive journey. The theatrical experience is one to linger on, way beyond the curtain drop.
A one time chance to watch Amol Palekar perform the thriller live, and live the old memories...
