Ace actress Shobana Chandrakumar is back to JTPac with her masterpiece ‘Krishna-the man and his philosophy’; and why he is above man understands. The story puts an insight on the belief that whenever righteousness fails and adharma rears its ugly head, the supreme releases himself in the world as Krishna. This is Shobana’s latest creation combining element s of classical, folk and film dance to portray the story and teachings of the divine hero ‘Krishna’.
Krishna in this production will be seen doing different roles, his mother Devika pleads with him to come back to Mathura and that was one promise he had to keep. He manages to motivate his brethren, the Yadavas princes to mend their warring and bickering ways and to opt for a more disciplined way of life winning brides in his inimitable fashion along the way.
Oscar winning Resul pookutty is the sound designer of this grand musical show. Shobana will be starring as Krishna along with 22 talented students from her dance institute Kalarpana. This 2 hour show will be like a magical night at JTPac as many well known celebrities have lent their voices to the production including Surya (Arjun’s voice), Shabana Azmi (Gandhari’s voice), Prabhu (voice for Bhima and Nandan), Radhika (Devaki’s voice), Konkana Sen (voice for Radha) and Nandita das (draupadi’s voice).
