Maverick Makarand Deshpande is yet again blurring the definitions of art collaborations. His latest project – Patni will deliver a monologue with situational music lent by Niladri Kumar. Deshpande describes the play as a celebration of love and the crisis of letting go. He says, “When I wrote the concept of my new play, I could only think of one name for music, Niladri and I’m fortunate that for me he is always just a phone call away. Niladri adds that while many creative artists make magic on the big screen Makarand was a maverick on stage.
It is interesting how Makarand is using the platform to perhaps complete his own karmic cycles. His another hugely successful play Mother In Transit is a tribute to his mother.
Both plays can be watched this week at Prithvi Theatre
