मित्रहो –

जबरदस्त... भारीच झाले नाटक…… आणि तुम्हा सगळ्यांचे काम.... आपल्या नाटकासाठी शिकागो, पीओरियाहून मंडळी असते आणि त्यांनी जातांना थांबून सांगितले कि खूपच कार्यक्रम सुंदर झाला. खूप लोन्कांकडून पण असाच अभिप्राय होता.......

घरी आल्यावर मी भारतात आईशी बोलत होतो आणि तेव्हा सांगत होतो कि, असे नाटक होते, प्रेमाचे इ. वगैरे... आणि सांगत होतो कि आई इथली टीम अगदी professional आहे, खूपच छान करतात.... तेव्हा... पुढील वाक्य तिने पूर्ण केली आणि म्हणाली... तू हे प्रत्येक वर्षी सांगतो..... म्हणजेच... प्रत्येक वेळी कौतुक करावेसे वाटते.... गौतम आणि टीम तुम्ही भारीच आहात.... तुम्हास मानाचा मुजरा!!!!!!!!!

अभिनंदन... अभिनंदन... अभिनंदन... अभिनंदन...!!!!!

दर वर्षीप्रमाणे यावर्षीदेखील नाटक सुंदर झालं. आमच्या काहींच्या मते गेल्या 2/3 वर्षांमधला हे सर्वोत्तम नाटक म्हणायला हरकत नाही. प्रेमाचे वेगवेगळे रंग तुम्ही सगळ्यांनी एकदम मस्त दाखवलेत त्याबद्दल तुमचे हार्दिक अभिनंदन ! आसू आणि हसू यांचं उत्तम मिश्रण साभिनय दाखवून दिलत ! नाटक पाहताना फार मजा आली. भारतातून इथे आलेल्या माझ्या आणि माझ्या मित्रांच्या आई बाबांनादेखील नाटक खूप आवडलं ! परत एकदा तुम्हा सर्वांचं अभिनंदन !

Subject: Natak 2010 - another job well done


Saturday’s natak as usual and expected was another piece of art done so well by all the performers.
Congratulations to you and the team of Natak 2010. It was a delightful experience to watch yet another product of Karandikar Factory J.

Liked the 2 level set which must have been quite some effort. The character of Nilubhau Gore stood out and was effectively portrayed by Mandar. Everybody played their part really well and did justice to their characters.

Hello everyone,

Heartiest congratulations to everyone on a scintillating performance. It was good in a way that I did not see the “Rangit Taleem” so mine was a fresh set of eyes looking at the play. I was amazed at the completeness of the play. The performances were none shorter than of epic proportions. The plays I have witnessed have usually had a handful of outstanding performances to go along with the others (with all due respect). But here was a play that had all the actors peaking together which simply made the play flawless and spellbinding. I saw the audience being very involved and living through the moments of the play rather than being mere spectators.

Vishal à It was great to see you act for the first time. I had heard great things about your acting skills and you deserve every bit of it. Knowing you as a calm, composed and non fidgety person I was very interested to see how you’d portray such a character who’s so insecure and gullible. From the word go you painted the character in such a nice way not only with your dialogue delivery but the facial expressions, body language that it will always stay in mind as a character to remember. It just goes to show the depth of your acting skills knowing the type of character you played in “Doctor tumhi suddha”. Excellent performance.

Ninad à I could not have envisioned anyone else doing justice to this character as you have done. Your comic timing was perfect and came in the places it was worth the most. The scene where you said “Annaa……….Mhan naa” to go with your sashtang namaskar to Ratan got the audience roaring with laughter. Knowing the way you usually deliver your dialogues like “Ti pora ji eke kaali pora hoti….tyaa baika jyaa eke kaali baika hotyaa” from KARTI PREMAT PADLI….we were for sure expecting a performance worth remembering for days to come and we were very happy to see that come true.

Manasi --> After watching you perform for the first time my question to Ashish was "Has she acted before", he did mention some performances but none that would justify the mature performance that you treated us to. You made us laugh and made some eyes wet with your concern about Bajirao in the second act. That scene with Gautam came out extremely well and was very touching. It's hard to believe that we were watching you on the stage here for the first time.

Aparna --> I never thought that your character would ever turn a leaf on a serious note as it did till the last act. Your work in the first act set the pace for lots of smiles. Your "ISHYA" after Ballal asks you about BAJYAA...simply the timing of that dialogue was superb. The last scene where you swing between your liking of Bacchu after being bitten by reality of marriage and then finally coming down to ground realizing that your Sarjerao still worried about you was a stand out for me. You balanced the character very well for someone who was ambitious, pompous but honest.

Gautam and Gauri -- The chemistry between you is unparalelled. Right from the start to the very end the journey that you took us audience through was so beautifully crafted. Having seen you direct plays (I would count Gauri also as a director here because her inputs go a long way in making the play look polished) I know the hard work that goes in. And the performances of every character adds a feather in your cap as a director. Making us laugh insanely with the "Bund garden" scene, the slick wise crack "kiti sosla mi" or "mi pan kiti sosla" to making us cry in the last scene we were treated to something very special. I can keep on with the accolades but the more said the less it is.

If this was the intensity in Milwaukee, I am sure that it will be one notch up in Bloomington. I am penning my thoughts here as I will not be able to make it to the Bloomington show. I am sure that we all will be witness to a wealth of performances on the 17th.

All the best and keep up the great work!!!!
