The legacy of theatreperson and film maker K. Balachander is moving in a new direction. On Friday evening, Balachander’s daughter-in-law Geetha Kailasam presented the first play of Minbimbangal, the well-known TV production centre based in Mylapore.
The Tamil play ‘ Oru Sila Pala Nimidamum Pechchum’ was staged at Narada Gana Sabha hall, Alwarpet under the auspices of three sabhas.
The focus of the play, scripted by Geetha Kailasam is on the protagonist exploring ways to express herself.
The play’s premiere had its hiccups – the audio levels wavered and people in the back rows had to yell to complain about it, the scenes laboured in the first quarter and the connect with the audience took some time to happen.
Minbimbangal was helmed by Balachander’s highly talented son Bala Kailasam and its productions were popular and made a name for the maker and its production house. Bala is no more. His wife is taking the lead to chart a new course for the brand.
