We all are half done, we all are incomplete. Mohan Rakesh's Aadhe Adhure is what true theatre is. It is pure drama written with a very nuanced and methodical understandings of human psyche. It repeatedly draws often the theme of our expectations and reality. Are we happy with what we have? Can we ever be happy? What is happiness?

In Aadhe Adhure, Mohan Rakesh takes an ordinary family where the family relationships are already crumbling. The wife is the only earning member in a family of 5, the husband has lost all his self-confidence. The elder daughter eloped and married but is still struggling to find happiness, her younger brother has reached of age but yet to find a job and the youngest teenager has coming of age problems coupled with a need to get attention. The wife is tired of taking care of everyone and has her own desires and ambitions.

Rakesh wastes no time in setting up the tension, but he never lets go off it. This is a story where everyone is at fault and yet no-one is. Rakesh unfolds the story brilliantly and his command over his audience is splendid.

TOYO - Theatre on your own, uses minimal props to render the story. At some points, it feels mere a dramatic reading of the play yet the actors render their roles with a gloom that stays with you even after the play gets over. There is also a minimal use of shadow effects yet it adds exponential flavoring.

Aadhe Adhure is a must watch play. You can take your parents to this one and it will be a discussion point for the way back home.
