Thanimai(Loneliness, தனிமை)

Saw Thanimai, a tamil drama staged by Krea yesterday. What a treat! It was just perfect, the acting, dialogues, direction.. Enjoyed it thoroughly! We watched it thanks to a friend (who is one of the main characters in the play) who highly recommended it. We are glad we listened to him and saw the play. It is about the loneliness of a aging parent. But wait, it is not one of those depressing plays. Very nicely done with lot of funny lines. The way, they go between the 1970s flashback and the current day is wonderful. And very cleverly the play doesn’t take any sides and state just the facts and the play ends on a positive note. So it is enjoyable overall! Deepa,Navin, Sathish acted so well. The person who played Sathish’s wife was so cute and was just perfect for the part. The chittappa character was so real. Wish we had taken our parents with us, they would have enjoyed the play. (Unfortunately the play was the same day they were leaving back for India). We dropped them off at the airport and went to see Thanimai! How strange is that?

  2. I am so sorry that I missed it. I had plans of going but couldn’t. Looking at the photos, looks like Naveen played the old man’s part. Hopefully, they will redo it sometime.
