Tulu dramas in Bangalore next week

All Tulu drama enthusiasts in Bangalore, can mark next Sunday(25th May 2008) in their dairies, as there will be 2 Tulu comedy dramas staged at Ravindra Kalakshetra, Bangalore on that day. 'Kutumba' and 'Madime' are the two plays, both directed by Tulu drama veteran, Vijay Kumar Kodialbail. Vijay Kumar Kodialbail is an eminent Tulu theatre personality and was the director of hugely popular Tulu comedy drama in the 90s - 'Oriyordori Asal'.

'Oriyordori Asal' had some big names in Tulu theater like Anand Bolar(as Coporator Kanthapanna), Naveen D Padil (as Bhajane Master Basappanna), Bhojaraj Vamanjoor(as Lingamakka). I used to listen to the cassettes of the Tulu dramas at home at that time and used to imagine the scenes. Anyway, dialogues usually had the punch rather than the actual scenes, I thought. That was the second drama I had listened to after 'Aatada Ulayi Aata'. 'Aatada Ulayi Aata' was an unique experiment as it was a nice blend of Yakshagana and Drama. I have not seen/listened to any other plays directed by Vijay Kumar Kodialbail off late, as there are also 2 other theatre groups in Mangalore active now, one lead by Naveen D Padil and the other by Devdas Kapikad.

Last Tulu comedy drama I watched in Bangalore was 'Anchilathth Inchilathth', in July 2007, performed by Lakumi Kalavider, a troupe by Naveen D Padil at Town Hall, Bangalore. Dakshina Kannada Kulala Sangha, Bangalore has organised this show in association with Ranga Spandana. For 'Kutumba', this is the 100th show. Here are the details of the two plays.
