Aranyak brings ‘Bhangabanga’ on Shilpakala stage today

Theatre troupe Aranyak Natyadal, one of the most prominent theatre troupes in the country, will stage its acclaimed production ‘Bhangabanga’ today at the National Theatre Hall of Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy (BSA) in Segun Bagicha of the capital.  

Written by thespian Mamunur Rashid and directed by Faiz Zahir, the play is the 54th production of Aranyak Natyadal.

The story of the tragic-comedy ‘Bhangabanga’ is based in a village on the Bangladesh-India border in Benapole following the partition in 1947. It portrays the people of Benapole (Bangladesh) and Haridaspur (India).

Several of Tagore’s characters like Bishu Pagla, Malini, Nandini, Bosonto Roy, Aparna, Nabin, Raja and others are involved in illegal businesses such as trafficking, prostitution, among others. Tagore’s writings and songs are referenced in ‘Bhangabanga’, as some of his songs are featured. It includes the love story between Raja of Benapole and Malini of Haridaspur, showing love breaking the barriers of barbed wires.

The play comes to a major climax when it is shown that an unknown person who has arrived intends to visit Patisar, in Bangladesh. That person turns out to be none other than the legendary Rabindranath Tagore who wishes to travel without any visa and passport to Bangladesh by boat. The play ends with the lovers, who risk their lives to meet one another during border-closure and get shot.

The probable cast of the play includes Mamunur Rashid, Tomalika Kormoker, Arif Hussain, Sajjat Saju, Firoz Mamun, Kamrul Hasan, Sayed Sumon, Hasim Masud, Monir Zaman and others.

Tickets will be available in front of the hall before the show. For advance ticket, one can contact at 01718759754.
