Nadhimoolam Review by Satish Chandrasekaran
At the outset I should certainly say that this is one of the most interestingly plotted plays given the limited space and time in relation to stage play is concerned. At the end I was really surprised that 2 artists were introduced for the first time in stage. Their acting was so proficient that it was hard to believe this fact and I personally feel that the credit goes to the director who has brought about the best from a novice. AS far as the philosophical part of ‘every person answerable to his guilt’ and ending with a note that ‘there could be no greater punishment than one being made answerable to himself for one’s actions’, I feel that this is a tough subject matter remaining untouched by any writers till date- to my limited knowledge and belief. Though writers have found it tough to portray philosophy(pertaining to conscience and guilt), religious beliefs(relating to rebirth) and truth(relating to admittance of crime) the same has been deftly handled in a proficient manner.
