Director Venkat inaugurates his New Play, “ETHIRPAARATHATHU”

Brief Chat with Director Venkat by K. Vivekshankar

Director Venkat who has written and directed the popular tamil teleserial, Cho’s “ENGEY BRAHMANAN” telecast on Jaya TV  is inaugurating his new stage play, “ETHIRPAARATHATHU” under the banner ‘New Creation’ at Vani Mahal, T.Nagar, Chennai on 14th August 2010.

The play would be presented for the members of Sri Thyaga Brahma Gana Sabha in association with South Zone Cultural Centre.

Director Venkat

“You are wrong” was the spontaneous reply from the ace director Venkat when we welcomed his return to theatre. Where is the question of returning?.. “I have always been associated with tamil theatre, even at the peak of my film career”.

He is right and that is why he is recognized as one playwright who has written and presented  more number of plays at the tamil mainstream theatre.  He has crossed 60 stageplays and still counting…

On my instinct to gather more about the upcoming play on what  the theater lovers can expect from the “Unexpected” (Ethirparaathathu), Venkat assures  us that the play will be neat and engrossing.   He goes on to say the play is based on Alfred Hitchcock’s  “Rear Window”, but is suited to Indian audience.  “The climax” would be really unexpected!!!!!!!!! (ethirpaarathathu). “A dedicated team comprising  stage veterans, T.D. Sundararajan (TDS), Shivaji Chaturvedi, TD Balu, Sangeetha, are part of this sincere effort”, says Venkat.

Acknowledging the popularity that he has attained and appreciations showered on him for his excellent presentation of  “Engey Brahmanan”, he feels at home when it comes to theatre for the simple fact that it is his passion.  “I have always loved to do stageplays” says Venkat and assures to come out with more plays in the near future.  Television audience need not worry and they wont be disappointed  as his next television project is in the pipeline.

Director Venkat has been conferred with “Nataka Mudhra” award recently by Shri. Cho Ramaswamy on behalf of Mudhra, Chennai.
