Ludhiana, November 10, 2018: Ludhiana Sanskritik Samagam (LSS), always derived satisfaction in bringing great shows. On 16th November, LSS is bringing a play “Ek Mulaqaat” (A love between Poets – a Marriage of Words) in Urdu/Hindi/Punjabi; directed by Saif Hyder Hasan and starring Shekhar Suman and Deepti Naval & troupe at Guru Nanak Bhawan, Ferozepur Road, Ludhiana at 7.30pm.
Addressing the media persons here on Saturday, S.K.Rai, General Secretary, Ludhiana Sanskritik Samagam and others such as Amit Kothari, Rashmi Bector, Rajni Bector, Amrit Nagpal, Gopi Kothari and Gaurav Sehgal said this would be the 110th programme of Ludhiana Sanskritik Samagam. This programme could be brought to the audience of LSS by the courtesy of sponsors namely Mrs Bector’s Cremica, Satyam Auto Components Pvt Ltd, Ralson (India) Limited, Kay Jay Forgings Pvt Ltd, PYE Tools Pvt Limited and Nicks (India) Tools.
Synopsis: On a cold winter night, Amrita Pritam (Deepti Naval) is sitting on the terrace of her house in Delhi when two strange things occur. She gets a sudden trunk call from Bombay, making her wonder who it can be, as she doesn’t know anyone out there except Sahir Ludhianvi (Shekhar Suman). Before she could answer, Sahir appears in front of her. The two then indulge in a witty play of words and poems-shayaris which brings to the fore their love for each other, the loneliness, the anger and a lot more. The play is laced with poems, shayaris and a smart play of words.
On the whole, Ek Mulaqat is a well-made venture and is worth the hype and expectations surrounding it. The use of words, poems, shayaris, the direction and of course Shekhar Suman and Deepti Naval’s bravura performance come together to provide an experience to savour and remember for a long time! Hats off to the makers for coming up with the play the way they wanted to and didn’t attempt to simplify so as to make it more mainstream. The play will surely have a great run and will attract hordes of people.”
