Tiatr Review - Amchoch Dhorm Kiteak Alta

Tiatr Review - Amchoch Dhorm Kiteak Alta
By J P Pereira

Simon Gonsalves has written and directed this Lenten play, which points out the various evil deeds we do, while still trying to depict ourselves as good Christians with high moral values.

There are two families in the play–one rich, the other middle class. The rich man has committed many atrocities, his wife although God fearing has something to hide and their son is a loafer. The other family consists of a father and his two children. The daughter is in love with the rich man’s son and the son seems unsure of what he is doing. Also in the play are parish priests and a Hindu neighbour (to the rich man) who has suffered a great tragedy. Watch the play to know what happens in the lives of these people.

The play has a nice script, good direction, plenty of special scenes and lots of humour too. Betty Alvares as the rich man’s wife and Bushka as the daughter perform very well. Justino as the girl’s father, Jacinto as the rich man and Simon as the confused son put up a fine act as well. Franky acts well as the wayward son, but tends to shout and scream at times.

The pick is Ignatius de Xelvon, perfect as the tragic Gurudas and Dominic gives a realistic performance as a parish priest. Xavier Gomes plays the other priest. Ambe, (great act as the free loader) Selvy and Sally provide plenty of humour.

Augusto de Panchwadi provides the music. Bushka renders the introductory song well and in between the acts there are songs by her, Xavier Gomes and Marcus Vaz. A solo by Abel and a trio from Simon-Xavier-Marcos needs special mention.
