KAMALA – play by by Vijay Tendulkar

TAGS: None

Silver Blue Productions gladly presents: KAMALA
Written by Vijay Tendulkar and Directed by Siddharth Selvaraj
To be staged at the Center for Film and Drama, Sona Towers, Millers Road, on 15th August 2006 at 3.30 p.m. and 7.00 p.m.


Vijay Tendulkar’s Kamala is one of those few haunting theater masterpieces that appeal to just about anyone, because it touches virtually all our lives. Kamala is an indictment of male society in which women are mere stepping-stones in a man’s quest for power and fame.

For those unfamiliar with the background of the play, it is based on journalist Ashwini Sarin’s path-breaking investigative series in 1981 on the flesh trade in Madhya Pradesh. Sarin “bought” the woman, Kamala, for Rs. 2,300. He then wrote a series of articles in early 1981, exposing the prostitution trade and revealed the involvement of bigwig politicians and police.

The original play was scripted and directed by Tendulkar himself. It was staged 150 times in 32 cities and in seven languages. It was also made into a film with Deepti Naval playing the role of the tribal woman “Kamala”.

    Tendulkar’s play Kamala is really praise worthy because it captures about a social issue that is the dominance of male figure
