Kolai paayuthe – Review

Drama of deceit

SYED MUTHAHAR SAQAF

Drama Money plays a pivotal role in the life of Ramesh and lands him in a vortex. How he handles them is the crux of the story.

A scene from ‘Kolai Paayuthe.’

The Tiruchi based Annai Stage presented a new play ‘Kolai Paayuthe’ under the auspices of Rasika Ranjana Sabha, Tiruchi, at the FGN hall recently.

Tiruchi George had written the story and the dialogue. M.S. Mohamed Masthan, a Kalaimamani awardee, was in charge of direction and Pondy Tamizharasan had scored the music.

The story revolves round Ramesh (V.P.C. Sekar), who murders his brother Jagadeesh and tries to cheat the insurance company of 50 lakhs.

Suspicious police

Ramesh and his elder brother, a military officer in New Delhi, look alike. Ramesh, who is involved in various financial irregularities, uses the resemblance to stage a drama of deceit.

Police officers Ashok (M.S. Mohamed Masthan) and Deepak (Adisridhar), who check the veracity of Ramesh’s narration get suspicious when they realise that Ramesh had taken a policy for a huge sum without proper source of income for paying the premium. A letter written by Jagadeesh to Ramesh and an air ticket to Delhi in the name of Ramesh, both recovered from the latter’s house, point to the murder, committed by Ramesh.

The portrayals by Selvaraj and J. Julian, as police constables and Srinivasan as the LIC agent, Ramabhadran, were impressive.

The Annai Stage has planned to take the play across the State soon.
