Hindi adaptation of Maxim Gorky’s play Talghar was staged at Bharat Bhavan on Wednesday. Drama received good response. The students of MP School of Drama (MPSD) staged ‘Talgahr’. The Hindi play is directed by Alok Chatterjee.
The play portrays a lodging house, hideous and foul, where gather the social derelicts -- the thief, the gambler, the ex-artist, the ex-aristocrat, the prostitute. All of them had at one time an ambition, a goal, but because of their lack of will and the injustice and cruelty of the world, they were forced into the depths and cast back whenever they attempted to rise. They are the superfluous ones, dehumanised and brutalised. This play is revolved around pessimism. The play was staged at Bharat Bhavan with double cast. On Wednesday the artist is main role who enacted the play includes Shailednra Mandond, Shruti Pandey, Radha Krishana, Gyanendra Yadav, Sanjay Singh Jaudan, Nayan Raghuvanshi, Harsh Prakash, Vivek Namdev, Shubham Bhari, Ankit Mishra. Riyansh Taneja, Arun Thakur, Isha Pandey, Meghna Agrawal, Sarika Bharati, Jitendra Kumar etc.

Radha Krishna portrayed as Vaska one of the main character as the young thief. With subtle dialogues there is another humane figure illuminating the dark picture in Luka which was enacted by artist Gyanendra Yadav. He is the type of an old pilgrim, a man whom the experiences of life have taught wisdom. He has tramped through Russia and Siberia, and consorted with all sorts of people; but disappointment and depression made him lose of his faith in idealism and his mind is always in chaos.

The drama portrays that most of the characters how they were forced to kill the good in themselves and are doomed in pessimistic attitude.
