This two act play written by Dr. Vivek Bele is a humorous comment made on the manipulative overtures of the political mind. Political mind, because the manipulations may be designed and applied as much in mainstream politics as much in the personal relationships.
The characters in the play are three roommates, of which one imagines he has found his love. The friends address each other by names they have invented on the basis of their individual personalities. So, here we have the uncouth and aggressive ‘Chaku (Knife)’, who brings home the woman he would like to marry to meet his friends ‘Pustak (Book)’ who like his name goes by the book and ‘Makad’ a T.V channel journalist who could move heaven and earth to find news.
The lady herself is unabashed about changing her mind when it suits her, and moving on with life. With no answerability to an erasable past she aptly renames herself ‘Pencil’.
The story becomes a chain of witty battles between the four characters as Pustak and Chaku both woo Pencil while Makad eggs on both individually. The duel goes on parallel to the Elections news that is being shown on TV.
The two men vie for the lady’s favors just as the opposing candidates vie for public support. The media and Makad meanwhile enjoy the show as long as the bottle of champagne is not opened. Because champagne means celebration and celebration means everybody is happy which clearly does not agree with their psyche.
Then Pencil marries Pustak and things seem to come to a dead end. But Makad would not let that happen. He now convinces Chaku that he is not out of the race and that he can still have his love back.
Strategies are built, manipulations galore and wit abounds. Every time there is a possibility of stability, Makad the media man becomes restless and succeeds in unsettling the situation once again.
Who gets the lady, who gets the chair? Whom does the lady favor, whom does the public uphold?
In a thoroughly enjoyable laughter ridden two hours of moves and countermoves, Director Girish Joshi brings out the stark insensitivity and selfishness of the human mind in no uncertain terms.

Hi I am Azad, today I saw your play at Gadkari {Thursday 13th July 2006 at 4.30 pm}. It was the best play which I had seen in this whole month. The dialouge written in the script was amaizing spiced with humour & logical question & answer session. Director has done his job wonderfully & on the other hand actor's has also performed well. Good job, keep it up.......

Hello!
I was one of those many audiences who walked out of the Devi ahilya auditorium of Indore smiling.I wud first like to congratulate the entire team on your 100th show... may u hav many more.
Besides being a very intresting topic, it was something I cud relate with. I use to work in a s/w comp. and the way the play moved on... I cud see and identify ...' Yes he is someone I know, particularly Pencil... I hav seen so many of those.'

One of the things that appealed to me most was bringing the reference to My fair lady and the new discoveries one can make thru revisiting these classics. Each time a person reads it, its diff. bcoz it is a diff story for the individual with new circumstances.

In all I wud recommend everyone to go and watch.Congratulations again!!

cheers!!

Warm Greetings!
I saw the play at Kalidas, Mulund on 23rd July,2006 with my husban, and best friend.
we enjoyed a lot.
the thing I liked the most is parallel line between t.v. news and actual lives of characters. and eventually both things are created and managed by "Makad".
Also refferences used in the play are marvlous such as "My fair Lady" etc.
in general, good script, powerful acting by all the actors, correct timing all these things made a play an unforgotteble experiance

hi, saw the play with my father at prabodhankar on friday. we both enjoyed it very much. i was watching the reactions of my father who is about 68. he was really having a gala time. that makes the play a favourite with all generations.

script, direction & acting all were excellent. the lights & background music was also good.the exits before blackouts showed great timing.

the play induced a thinking process. if i find something more specific to write later on, i will come back to you.

Hi,
Congrats to the team of the Play.....it was different from all the others and thats what i liked about it....

There were several things where i think you should improve to get it more interesting..
1. Please give some more dialog to Chaku...his presence is felt but lack of good dailog to him compared to others.
2. Add some more news on the TV which would be interesting and some humourous.
3. Please do not allow the characters to actually smoke on the stage....
4. Kindly slow down the volume when the interview happens.
5. Make the ending more interesting...as it ends suddenly....such as Makad gets the Pencil OR Shampange is opened up OR something more...

I wish you all the Best and success in this play to go beyond 1000 plays...

Cheers!! Rahul.

1) reduce the duration of play to 2.00 hrs or 2.15 hrs max.
2) pls. start prayog at time mentioned on ticket.
3) End could have been different.

I have seen the play thrice. It was an exception to economics' "Law of Diminishing Returns". The only two words BHANNAT & APRATIM can describe this play.

With two plays under his belt (Makadachya & Love story-2006), Dr. Vivek Bele has certainly started a new era in Marathi "Enodi" type of plays.

The play can be made further enjoyable with following:
1. Sound system must be improvised
2. Please leave sufficient "cool off" period between the two punches. The next punch kicks in before the laugh for the current punch stops, especially in the second half.
3. In the second half, the negotiation scene between chaku & pustak can be played without cigarettes it their hands.

Dr. Bele & Mr. Joshi, Anand, Sharvani, SandeshX2, hats off to you guys!

Dear All

I saw the drama at Navi Mumbai.

N reallay the Drama n the characters is tooooo GUD.

Its a very NICE DRAMA.

There were many things which was like learning from the Drama.

The Only things which i felt, which should not be done was the "CIGARATE SMOKING" by the character.

As you all are aware SMOKING IS BEEN PROHIBITED.

So please I request you if you could do some changes in the same.
as by just showing a cigarate without lighting it.

Its just a Opinion about the Drama.

REST ALL THE DRAMA WAS REALLY GOOOD.

Thanks

I watched the play at Gadkari .(13th aug 2006 at 4.30 p.m)
Hats off to MHC.You have blended the perfect Champagne.Its popularity will go on increasing like the taste of champagne.You should give some credit to Bajarang Dal also...Just kidding.
You proved once again Pune is path finder ,always.

My likes :
1)My Fair Lady cha padlela khis.
2)Idea of giving the new names according to nature of person.
3)Linking between political news and the life of characters.
4)Casting.
5)Background sound .

My dislikes :
1)Poor sound system.Please rerecord the backgroung sound in a clear form.
2)Kulkarni should stop body comedy.This is not a Kedar Shinde play.

Hi I am Anagha. This is a wonderful drama. The actors are awsome in their job, besides dialogues, every pravesh is Fantabulous I must say.

hi team of M.H.C.

I saw the play at Shivaji Mandir (16.09.06 3.30 pm) alongwith spouse. It is an excellent comedy apart from the disturbances (mobile) from some irresponsible & bakvaas audience. I think that u were compelled to end the play little early.

Ideas we like :

- Political connectivity
- Nature oriented names
- Reading same thing again & again under different state of mind. (My Fair Lady)

Our dislike:

- Dialogue on very rare occasions are bending towards blue (w.r.t.marathi sanscruti)

Overall play is superb. Keep it up Mr.Anand & team.

Strongly recommended to those who have not yet seen the play.

Sandip said...

Hi, I am sandeep shahane. just came back from the show at Baalgandharva. I must say a true transformation of an experimental drama to a commercial one and seems that too with maintaining the original foreseen values of the natak by all the stake holders. Congratulations to the team of "Makadachya haati".
A strong story line backed with equally thoughtfully scripted dialogues and converted to "simple marathi" thst reaches even low_intellect_audience like me :)
I can narrate few scenes where where the depth of thought process behind the making of this piece is clearly visible: first one when "makad explaining the three steps to chaaku, starts doubting to himself if chaaku is getting what point he is trying to make?" it seems like a interrogation directly coming from the director in midst of the fun_filled drama to the uncontrollably laughing junta, an awakening reminder of a sort to read between the lines or shall i say to understand 'conceptually' (rather than just using visionary and audible senses) a la "makadachya haati" lingo. Secondly, the beauty of analogy and complexity of the examples co-relating the issues in the drama and the personification put in the form of naming the characters themseleves is an ultimate culmination of the complete team work that is being presented and being highly popularising a new mantra of marathi drama making among marathi theatres!

My verdict? Too Gud a must go N see "4 stars"! one star minus, because i highly believe there exists a message behind this drama and its just not an analytical presentation by the makers on some topic. And I am little unsatisfied abt the climax, not ending conclusively to put the message in a summarised manner to the audience!

CHAMPAGNE STUFF
WHAT A PLAY, CONGRATS TO ALL INVOLVED.I AS A TICKET BUYING VIEWER CRAVE FOR SUCH A EXPIRIENCE WHICH IS INDEED RARE TO FIND AMONG MOST CURRENTLY HAPPENING PLAYS.FROM START TO END THE PLAY IS TOTALLY UNPREDICTABLE IN IT'S NATURE AND AT THE END OF IT I WAS ABSOLUTELY MESMERISED.THE ACTING IS A-GRADE.SANDESH JADHAV FITS THE CHARACTER WELL AND SO DOES SANDESH KULKARNI AS THE BOOKISH PUSTAK.I HAVE BEEN A BIG FAN OF HIS DIRECTED PLAYS SUCH AS PAHILA-VAHILA,MASSAGE,SATHE CHA KAI KARAICHA,SAKHARAM BAINDER(DVD).SHARVANI PILLAI IS EXTREMELY GRACFUL AS PENCIL AND SHOWS WHAT HER ACTING CAPABILITIES COULD BE.BUT THE MAN WHO ABSOLUTELY STEALS THE SHOW FOR ME IS ANAND INGLE.THAT MAN HAS AN AWESOME STAGE PRESENCE.I WISH HE GETS TO POTRAY MANY MORE SUCH CHALLENGING ROLES IN THE FUTURE.THIS IS ANOTHER TRIUMPH FOR DIRECTOR GIRISH JOSHI AFTER HIS FANTASTIC 'FINAL DRAFT'.ONE MORE GOOD THING ABOUT THE PLAY IS THAT IT HAS A LOT OF HIDDEN HUMOUR IN IT WHICH MAKES IT POSSIBLE HAVE SO MANY SHOWS ALL ACROSS.AND IMPORTANTLY IT IS INTELLEGENT COMEDY AND NOT BUFFOONERY WHICH IS THE CASE IN MOST OF THE OTHER PLAYS.I SAW THE PLAY FIRST AT IT'S OPENING SHOW AT SHIVAJI MANDIR.THEN I SAW IT AGAIN RECENTLY ON 14 OCT 2006.AS MUCH I ENJOYED IT ONCE AGAIN I WAS SURPRISED TO SEE THAT THERE WAS A SLIGHT CHANGE THAT HAS BEEN MADE IN THE WAY THE PLAY ENDS.I GUESS THIS HAS BEEN DONE TO SIMPLIFY IT FOR THE PUBLIC. BUT I PREFERRED THE WAY IN WHICH THE PLAY ORIGINALLY ENDED.THOUGH IT SEEMED LIKE A AN ABRUPT ENDING IT ACULLY KIND OF SUGGESTED THE ONGOING LIFE PROCESS OF THE UNUSUAL CHARACTERS.
IN THE END MY BEST WISHES TO THE MAKERS AND ACTORS FOR THIS PLAY AND THEREAFTER.

Congrats, today i.e. 25 Oct.2006 I seen the play at Gadkari, Thane I liked the idea. natak is very good and decent. my only opinion is that first part is little boring the second part is extremely good and beyond expectations. In second part when the character pencil gives one by one punches she should wait for a second so that people can laugh because these dialogues i feel are really good, the suggestion the pencil is giving are also good but if you said these dialogues in monotonous form the reverse thing may happen these dialogues are interesting i want to see the drama one again if i get the chance. hats of to you all, i like the name only makadachyatati Good play, good work, everything excellent give people enough time to laugh..Regards kiran.bennurwar@rediff.com

Everybody has done extremely well. I would especially like to congratulate 'vivek bele' to give such an unbelievable play to 'marathi theatre'. 'Girish Joshi' and all actors have performed well beyond expectations and gave justice to the superbly written play.
All actors have a fantastic sense of timing.
We are waiting for more such plays. Congrats to you all...!!!

Hi, Iam Siddhi here. I saw ur play at Gadkari Rangayatan on 25th October. Its a good play. Anaad Ingle was fantastic as he is always.Dialogue given to pustak was amazing and tough to act and speak so fluently.
Well, 1)some more news or somethng else should have been shown when TV is o in the room.2) END MADE TO THIS DRAMA was not upto the mark.Looking at the theme of the drama it should be excellent enough and not like which will 'keep on audience thinking' or 'something which the audience could not realize that this is he end.'
Overall a very good job by the director and ofcourse the stars in it.Hilarious Performance!!!!!!!1
KEEP IT UP.......

Thanks to the entire team of "Makdachya Hati Champagne" to make my birthday more memorable. I saw this play on 7th Nov 2006 at Vishnudas Bhave Natyagruha Vashi.
As it was my birthday so got a chance to leave office earliear, while coming to CST stn suddenly a though came in my mind "Lets check which play is thr today at Vashi" So bought MATA at 6 pm (:-), and decide to go for this play.
It is a suparb play and would love to watch it again and again.

But I have one complaint towards the end we were expecting one more 5 steps crash course from Makad about Pavitrya of Mangalsutra which didnt happen , anyways till it gets added we will go ahead with the 2 step course about how to get back u r married girlFriend :-))))

Hi, This is Umesh Sidhaye from Thane.
During The‘Avishkar Festival’in Jan.2006,I had a chance to watch this fantastic play. It was being performed only for experimental theatre till then.Let me tell you,the moment it started, I realized,it was something that I had never experienced before.It was badly felt that this play should be performed for commercial theatre to reach the audience at large.And it did happen, so let me first congratulate the producers for their initiative.
Now a few words about the play.I think it is the most brilliantly written marathi comedy I have ever seen in my life.At times,one has to be really attentive to catch the punchlines( and there are so many of them …Dr.Bele,you are simply great..!). It’s a must watch for all the so called present marathi comedy playwrights.. Most of the hit comedies in the past few years were mediocre scripts (or no scripts at all…!) and dialogues which gained popularity only due to the brilliant performance of the concerned actors.
Director Girish Joshi too has a lion’s share in the success of this play.The play keeps you on your toes throughout, as there is an element of surpise and curiosity involved at every stage.Finally about the acting..All the 4 characters (pencil,chaku,pustak and makad) have done their job brilliantly,though I feel most of the second half belongs to ‘makad’.One can see Anand Ingle at his best here.
I sincerely request all those who haven’t watched this play till now,Plz.. plz..go for it and enjoy..! I am sure,after seeing it once, you will be a member of the repeat audience,just like me…!

I take this opportunity to congratulate you on the occasion of your 200th show at Shivaji Mandir.It gave me great pleasure to watch your play.It's really so fantastic that I got no words to explain.I think Marathi play has started comming out of low level bodily humour.You play touches the hight of some inteligent humor.Now we can expect it to go on and complete more than 1000 show...I wish you all the Best..

Great Stuff! Myself Sammy!Watched this naatak for reckon the 4th time and believe me "Dar veli malaa vegale vaatale"! This is the only naatak in recent times which gives equal weightage to all the characters. All the characters are inter-linked and inter-supported. Every character has its own identity.
Naatak with the best vocabulary. Presented in a very logical way. Manipulation emphasised with the best humourous manner. Well balanced and ofcourse awesomely light.
Best one mate!

Hi,
Saw the show at Balgandharva on Saturday,8 Dec.
Really a superb and out of box play after a long time.
Superb acting by all the 4,apt naming of the characters and innovative idea of the parellels between the political news on television and the situation the characters are in made it a great pleasure to watch!
Congratulations to the playwright for superb writing and the director
for maintaing the speed,which makes the play interesting even if the language is heavy occasionally!

All the people who worry about 'Marathi Rangbhumi' should have seen the turnout at this play even at an evening show!
Keep it up!
May u people break the records!

An excellent play. I have recommended it to almost all the people I know.

"Chaku"'s personality does not show as forcefully as the others. Clothes and foul lnguage is not enough. A weak point indeed.

Namaskar,

This is Vaibhav Patkar

We saw this play on 31/Dec/2006 at Prabhodhan Thakrey Hall. It certainly was lovely way to usher in the new year.

Dr Vivek Bele has crafted a charming and thought provoking story which director Girish Joshi maps out for the actors to navigate seamlessly at a brisk pace. The play is refreshing change from the current trend in Marathi Theatre. The four characters were some one whoom we all we could relate to and this made it even more intresting.

It is a through a fun-filled two hours , that offers witty dialog, clever situations and even a bit of a moral .The end to me was very abrupt. May be Dr Vivek Bele could work on the end. We would love to watch this play again and again.

My best wishes to the entire team of this lovely and unique play .

Regards,

Vaibhav Patkar

Hi, this is Mahendra from Thane. I had heard a lot abt this play but finally got an opportunity to watch it this sunday and i must admit there could be no way better than this to celebrate the new yr eve!
The moment the characters introduced themselves by the names representing their unique personalities,i realized its going to be different and indeed, it was different throughout, different from the plays i have watched ever before. The script was intelligent. Though it was a writer's play, credit goes to the director and all the actors as well for their wonderful performance. Congrats to all those who are directly or indirectly involved in making this wonderful experiment highly successful and worth watching! Cheerz!!!

Dr. Akash Akinwar, Vice President of Maharashtra navnieman Vidyarthi Sena.
After long wait i got oppourtunity to watch this Excellent Marathi drama on 17th Feb Shivaji mandir, 7.30 show....
first of all one should appreciate the writer for writting such a wonderful script...credit goes to Dr. Vivek Bele....
each and every role was mind blowing........i would like to mwention few classic thinggs of this drama..

** Most important thing about this drama is though everyone found it comedy and simple i found it complicated and giving a serious message about marriage life and somewhere toucing the causes of postmarital affairs and their solutions.

1] The drama was comedy, romantic, touchy, outstanding.
2] In the start of second start everyone in the audience was confused that really with whom pencil is married?
3] The sensative and never understanding concept of marriage and marriage life was handled so cleverly.
4] The side by side news commentry of political twists on the TV and its corelation with the life of drama was a very innovative idea.
5] Hope this drama would somewhere inspire many of the audiences to manage their marriage life.

lastly i wish to meet all the actors of drama on behalf of Maharashtra Navnieman Vidyarthi Sena.so waiting for your invitation...Dr. Akash

Hi! I am Jitu Sawant. I saw your play Makadachya Hati Champagne on 18th February, 2007, 7:30 pm show at Shivaji Mandir with my wife.

First of all let me congratulate you all, for a good performance. Good Team Work what I can say. All characters are fantastic. Shravani is beautiful the perfect character for role of pencil as the beauty itself been define in her, I will say that the perfect character selection for a perfect role. Acting is also amazing.

Secondly character of Makad which played by Anand is really good. I think Anand is the perfect person for this role as Makad is the central character of the play by which the play goes on and it should be the person like Anand. I like Anands character very much, perfect time of dialog and pause, the way of acting is so smile that it seem that he is just saying it normally. Right decision taken by Zee Gaurav by nominating him as a Best Actor Award, once again heartiest congratulation for Anand and keep it up, best of luck in future for good roles. I hope we can see some good performance from Anand in more plays. Up till now I have seem him acting only in serial at zee marathi, first time is saw him on stage I am impressed by his acting.

Thirdly the other two character i.e. Chaku (Sandesh Jadhav) and Pustak (Aakshay Pendse) are also very good. They also had good scope in future for more roles. Overall all the character cast by the Dr. Bele and Girish Joshi are absolutely great. Heartiest Congratulation for whole team as I am from software background and I believe in team work and good team can give a good output of the play.

I basically like the script written by Dr. Bele, which is totally new and on currently political background. I think the writer has given audience correct brief idea about the dirty politics, which this all big peoples are playing around us. But at same time the writer also kept the play hold on the day to day event of every ones life how one women plays with two man’s life just as the political person plays. The theme of the play is very good. The dialog written is timely putting with day to day examples.

I would like to suggest that the end should be little different it feels that it had ended very fast and suddenly. About light used in the play are amazing basically the spot light at the time of interview. It seem to me that the sound are deem in between when the character speaks slowly it should be increased little. I don’t known its because of sound systems of theatre or any other matter. The soft music used in between play and in background is the perfect match to the script. Well I have seen this once only but I will definitely go next time with my friends also. TOTAL PAISA VASUL SIR. A GOOD COMMEDY IN COMPLETE FORM.
WISH U ALL A GOOD SUCCESS FOR GOOD PLAY.

Excellent.... everything was good the story, presentation, timing, speed. Everything neatly fell into place. Congrats...

The only thing which i would suggest would be that the end is a bit slow.. It could have been more precise. The last 20 minutes could have been to reduced to 10 minutes to keep up the pace generated initially.

Excellent work.. best of luck...

hi

I am Meghana from Pune. Natak khup chan aahe. Saglyanche kaam pan sundar zale aahe. Pan fakta yek ghosta khatakate. THe scene when Chaku is showed smoking on the stage is really very irritating. There is no need to show him smoking I think.
The audience sitting around me also had the same and rather a quick reaction at that time.
Kindly change that part or rather there is no need to smoke and talk. He can do it without it.

Take a note of this,

I saw it today at Dadar Shivaji Mandir. It is really amazing. Especially I liked the script. It is the real story!!

छान!
काल ह्युस्टन मध्ये नाटक पाहिले. छान आहे. नाटकाच्या पहिल्या अंकात राजकीय परीस्थितीचा वापर छान जमला आहे. दुस-या अंकात असा वापर अधिक प्रभावीपणे करता आला असता असे वाटते. विशेषतः नाटकाच्या शेवटी जेंव्हा माकड शँपेनला कवटाळते तेंव्हा दूरचित्रवाणी संचावर "महाजन आणि कदम यांच्या युतीच्या वाटाघाटी फिसकटल्या" या आशयाची बातमी रंगत वाढवून गेली असती असे वाटते. कलाकारांचे "टायमिंग" सुंदर आहे. पुढील खेळांसाठी शुभेच्छा!

Excellent show. We were fortunate to host your play in Raleigh, NC, USA on April 7,2007.
It was well worth the effort our local mandal took to watch a play of this quality.
Very well acted by everyone and directed by Girish Joshi.
Thanks to Dr. Agashe to bring this to US so we could watch it here.

Excellent. Watched it recently in Minneapolis. Especially liked when the TV gets turned off everytime the cricket piece starts. Portrays the reality to the dot.

Great job by Sudarshan/Damles to get these quality plays to the US.

Mukta was just fantastic in Final Draft.
All of you are extremely talented folks. Hope you guys are successful in what you are trying to do here.

Anonymous said...

Outstanding..!

The concept and dialogues are excellent and the cast has done perfect justice. The naming convention is unique and referring to Pustak as Itihaas-Pustak, Raddi etc is absolutely hilarious. Reference to the classic My Fair Lady is particularly appreciated. The unexpected end makes the audience leave the auditorium with awe.

This is the first time American audience was in tune with marathi natak's wit.

Suggestion - please do not have the actors sit on the floor/stage because the jokes are missed by the back rows audience or those that have tall people sitting in front of them.

HATS OFF to the cast members and particularly to the Author & Director. Hope to see you soon with more projects.

Hi! I am Milind from Thane. I saw Natak on 20-05-2007 at Gadakari Rangayatan. Commedy is good. Dialogues are good. Sharvani Pilley's role is pleasing one. However, I could not understand end. Like me others also came to know that drama has ended because curtains were closed. You can rework on the end of drama. Let me know end of drama. What happens to marriage of Pustak and Pencil. Who gets pencil finally? Please write to me on milind2005@gmail.com or call me on 9869372972.

Hi,
The play is fantastic no doubt, but I happened to see it 1st at Mahim which was its 1st performance in Mumbai. At that time I was more impressed by the play.I had recommended it to many friends, but again we happened to see it yesterday at Dinanath, Parle. I felt that the play lacked the gusto it had at its 1st performance at Mahim. particularly role of Sharvani Pillay lacked any energy, she just delivered the lines without any punch which made it listless.cannot imagine 3 ppl. falling for her with listless dialogue delivery.. Also in the previous prayog there was Dr. Vivek bele himself playing the Chaku . He was amazing in that performance. But the new actor fails in that too.
Hence came to the conclusion not to see plays which are liked by us again & again.
Hoping for some corrective action.

Shrvani Pillay acted very good and she looks the exact current generations role model..."pencil".. good she looks great in dresses as well as saree.....itz great efforts taken by the director and every one for casting the people

I HAD AN OPPORTUNITY TO VIEW PLAY AT SHIVAJI MANDIR ON 31ST MAY.

PLAY WAS VERY GOOD AND FULL OF LAUGHTER. CONGRATULATIONS TO YOUR ENTIRE TEAM.

ONE PROBLEM I FACED WHILE VIEWING SHOW THAT MAJORITY TIME ACTORS WERE ON EXTREME LEFT SIDE OF STAGE AND I GOT SEAT ON LEFT SIDE WHICH HAS LEAD IMPROPER VIEWING AND COULD NOT ENJOY BODY LANGUAGE AND EXPRESSIONS OF ACTORs SEATING ON THAT PARTICULAR SIDE.

I HOPE YOU DO SOMETHING TO AVOID SUCH INCONVENIENCE TO FUTURE VIEWERS.

AS AN VIEWER I WOULD SAY PLEASE REMOVE THE DIALOGE LIKE
"CHUTIYA" AND "GHANTA". IT FEELS VERY CHEAP.

ONCE AGAIN I SALUTE TO YOUR EFFORTS
FOR SUCH ENTERTAINING CHEMISTRY.

My name is Swapneel Nagarkar. saw the play yesterday 31st may 2007 at shivaji mandir. is absolutely brilliant. what appears as a comedy gradually exposes the negative forces of human mind and results there of. Also the parallel between political developments and developments in the lives of the characters in the play is great. Anand ingle is superb and must say has huge untapped potential.

Hi
I am Vijay. I attended your show yesterday at Dinanath Parle. I had already seen the Drama thrice. But yesterdays performance by Anand Ingale was so boring & pakau. Whatever laughter he produced yesterday was due to his facial expression only.
Sandesh & Sharvani were great. Even Akshay Pendse performed so well. The Scenes between Akshay & Sandesh mast perform zale without any Angvikshep.
Anand Ingale chi energy sampalya sarkhi watali. Actually such thing should not happened to actor of such calibar. ( Bharat Jadhav ajun suddha tyach energy ne Sahi re Sahi karato ).
Casting is too perfect. I enjoyed Akshay Pendse's performance than Sandesh Kulkarni.
Lastly Salute to Writer & Director. Thanks for giving me opportunity to write what I felt.

Thank you,

Vijay

Hi, I Saw the play at Dinanath (4 pm, Tuesday, 12th June 2007). It is a very unique way of presenting the current society senario using symbolic charactors. The play is now already a hit and appreciated all over, but I think an attempt to visualise a play like this with relatively new actors is commendable. Also, since there are no established stars in the play, it brings lot of freshness to the play and viewers can feel it. Everyone involved has done a great job, but Anand Ingle is fantastic. Clarity of his voice, flow of dialogues is simply superb. Congratulations and best wishes!!!

I got the opportunity to see the natak at Gadkari. Before makdacha.... I had seen final draft at Gadkari one week before Makdachaya....... I was really excited to see Mr.Girish Joshi in a memorable role. Girish n Mukta acted well in the Final Draft. Also when I learnt that he had written the play I really got to become his FAN.

What made me watch Makdachya....was the no. of awards it got. I really felt that this natak should b a great play to watch. And really it was more than my expectations. I m impress with the Direction skill what Girish Joshi posses.

Keep up your good work. Feel like watching both the plays one more time.

I watched the play last summer and again today (4th July 07) whilst holidaying in Mumbai. Loved it. The script is tidy, dialogues are very humerous and more than this, the actors are extremely well-suited to their roles. Their timing and delivery is near-perfect. I especially liked 'Pencil' played by the gorgeous Ms Pillai. All the best.

A vibrant comedy with live subject.
Congrates for Prizes and success.
Please Note.
It is not required to smoke actually in the drama to create the effect. The action will definately do the desired effect.
An action of smoking in movies are already baned. I wish we should also restrain ourselves showing the same.Actual smoking in A.C. hall make uncomfortable the viewers watching from the front rows.Hope you will avoid the same in future.
The cut-off or blakout in the first half after every seen break the continuty of the thoughts as weel as loose grip on the story. After every blackout ,you have to recollect the earlier seen to be in the drama again.Second half is good.
Thanks and enjoyed.

Hi I'm Sachin. I saw you r play last night at Shivaji Mandir. This is easily the best play I've seen in a long long time. Every aspect of the play was refreshing. The script no doubt is the centerpiece, but these bunch of talented actors have pulled off an amazing performance. Anand ingale as the Makad was brilliant to say the least. Keep up the good work guys!! Marathi stage needs such quality plays to pull audiences back to the theatres. A landmark play in the history of marathi stage for the sheer novelty of the subject.

Subhash said...

Fantastic play!! Gutsy script depicting the power of the media in our lives. Refreshing change in the kind of comedies we generally see on Marathi stage. Kudos to the entire team for such a power packed performance. I would be surprised if this play doesn't turn out to be one of the longest running plays of all time. Would love to see the 1000th performance of this play.

God bless for bringing lots of laughter in our lives.

अपेक्षाभंग -
-------

प्रयोग : सोमवार, ९ जुलाई २००७, रात्री ८.००
दीनानाथ नाट्यगुह.

मराठी नाटकं पाहुन हल्ली अपेक्षाभंगाच दु:ख फ़ारस होत नाही. कारण बहुतेक वेळा फ़ार अपेक्षाच नसतात. पण फ़ायनल ड्राफ़्ट पाहुन या नाटकाविषयी अपेक्षा वाढल्या होत्या. पण दुर्दैवाने त्या पूर्ण झाल्या नाहीत अस म्हणाव लागतय.

पुर्वार्ध खुप चांगला, पण उत्तरार्ध वाइट अशी सिनेमा नाटक बरीच असतात. या नाटकात फ़रक म्हणजे पुर्वार्ध साधारण वाटला, पण दुसर्या अंकात जास्त रंगत आली. नाटकात रस दुसर्या अंकातच निर्माण झाला अस मला वाटल. पहिला अंक म्हणजे काही चागल्या - वाइट चुटकुल्यांच एक कलेक्शन असल्यासारखा वाटला. या पलिकडे त्याबद्दल सांगण्यासारख काही वाटत नाही. पहिल्या अंकातली थीम जुनाट वाटते. All the Best वरून "inspire" झालेल एक नाटक वाटत. आंतर्महाविद्यालयीन एकान्किकेची छाप दिसत रहाते.

दुसर्या अंकाला त्या मानाने नक्किच जास्त चांगली थीम आहे. आणि ती चांगली सादर केली आहे अस वाटल. कल्पना छान होती, आणि ती खूप चांगल्या विनोदी शैलित सादर केली गेली. पण शेवट मात्र साजेसा वाटला नाही. खरतर शेवट नीट झाला अहे अस वाटलच नाही. नाटककार confuse झाला होता की काय, अस वाटत राहील (झाला होता अस मी म्हणत नाही, तस वाटल- मला - एवढच).

त्यामुळे overall नाटक बर वाटल, पण विशेष चांगल वाटल नाही. हल्लिच्या बरयाच विनोदी नाटकांच्या तुलनेत (उदा. - सही रे सही वगैरे) बरच चांगल आहे, पण साइसाक्षीकडून अधिक जास्त अपेक्षा ठेवायला हरकत नसावी.

आभिनयाच्या बाबतीत - चाकूच काम खूपच छान. त्याने ते कॅरेक्टर फ़ार छान रंगवल आहे. आणि त्याच कास्टींग सुद्धा परफ़ेक्ट आहे. त्यांच अभीनंदन. त्यांच्या पुढच्या भुमिकांविशयी उत्सुकता वाटत राहील. तो तसा या नाटकाचा हीरोच आहे एक प्रकारे. इतरांची काम ठीक.

राजकीय घडामोडींच्या अनुषंगाने कथा पुढे नेण्याची कल्पना देखील छान आहे.

ओव्हरऑल, नाटकात मजा आली. त्याबद्दल सर्व टीमचे अभीनंदन, आणि धन्यवाद.

The best play i saw in past few months..

Manoj said...

Seen the play at Dinnanth Mangeshkar Hall on 14th July, 2007.

The play was good. Overall performance very good.The best character played by Anand Ingle " Makad".

The play was full of humour and logic.Job done very well by writer, director, back stage artists and all other characters.

The great job done by Saisakshi Productions.

Good job team.....Keep it up

Hoping to see more of plays with the same enjoyment, same characters but with the different script not losing on humour and logic.

Play is awsome...jokes are really sensible and funny..today I saw this play for 3rd time and I realise that there was punch line for "Makad" saying "Barr.." its so famouse that people have started useing it but today when I saw this play I felt that use of this word has been reduced...I requset you to not make any changes in play and keep the freshness and laughing spirit high of this play..we people really like the punch "Barr.." please restore it as it was..Thank you

Hello Team,

I am Jayashri Pathrabe here. I saw this play at Vishnudas Bhave, Vashi on last sunday, 29th July 2007. I am overwhelmed by the concept. I always try to check good conceptual marathi plays and I won't take much time to say that this was the best concept I have ever seen in Marathi plays. It was way away and ofcourse ahead of usual plays. It was humourous, political, social and what not. !!!Hats of to the entire team !!! Everyone was at his/her's best and don't ask about Anand Ingale, bhalatach format aahe pathya ! Thanks for treating us with such a wonderful play. I request Natakkar, director and to the entire team, to Pl. continue to explore such concepts and present those to janta-janardan like me. Ek-donch goshti mala ( just a personal opinion ) jara khatakalya. Ek mhanje Pencil surwatichya scene madhye jara jaaaastch mod dakhawali aahe..ani pudhe matra ti chakk sadyanmadhye dakhawaliy.
Pan ticha swabhav matra badalela nahi, mag aasa ha pehrawat drastic badal kasa? Agdich sadhymadhe na dakhawata tila jara vegale ( pan sober ) kapade chalatil. Te tichya swabhavapramane pan watel. Asa mala watate. Dusari gosht mhanaje, Prekshakatil lahan mulanchya awajamule, radnyamule Anand jara disturb hot hota mag, "Pach varshakhalil mulanla pravesh nahi" ase jahiratimadhe ka mention karat nahi? ( Krupaya ase samju naka ki, Anand got disturbed because of my child and thatswhy I am writing about it. Mi he sarva prekshanchya vatine lihitey aasa samaja. Thank god my daughters are big now and luckily natak chhan enjoy karatat ani mhanun mihi .

Bas etakach bolayche aahe. Lihinyasathi sandhi dilyche aabhar.

Thanks and regards,

Hi I am Amol,I saw your play to time at Vi.Bhave at 4.30 pm one is 15th July 07 second time is not remember. It was the best play which I had seen in this whole year. I think best perfomer in this play Anand Ingale.The dialouge written in the script was amaizing spiced with humour & logical question & answer session. Director has done his job wonderfully & on the other hand actor's has also performed well. Good job, keep it up.......

One more good thing about the play is message given through the play was great, on role of media, politics and mentality of todays girls or the kind of culture coming to our society.
Thanks looking forward to see the play again in near future

It is an awesome play which I've ever seen. Full of humor!!
It also has a political touch which depicts in the human behaviors. Dialogues are wonderful no doubt about that.
And all the characters are acted very well especially the “MAKAD”

Congratulations to the entire team …….. You are really doing a great job!!!

It was a marvelous experience for me & my friends!!! Thanks you so much!!!

Apart from the comedy, I think it has got its own philosophy, similar to the movie "Matrix", which makes you to think after moving out of the theater.

Hello,

The play is awesome as well as the entire team of Makdachya Hati Champagne.

The concept reminds me of an old fable heard in my childhood "Doghanche Bhandan Teesryacha Faayda".
The play also shows the manner in which media can make or mar somebody's image in society.

I know Akshay Pendse personally and he is an intense actor totally devoted towards his profession.
His dialogues were very complex but he has done a fantastic job.

Looking forward to many more classics from the entire team.

नमस्कार मित्र मैत्रिनिनो,

मी काल ०२-०९-०७ ला संध्याकाली माकडाच्या हाती शांम्पेंन हे नाटक पहिले.
अतिशय उत्कृष्ट नाटक आहे हे संगयालाच हवे.
मी हे नाटक माझ्या मित्रा बरोबर पहिले पण परत एकदा पूर्ण फॅमिली बरोबर बघायची इच्छा आहे.
या नाटकातील आनंद इन्गले यांची भूमिका नक्कीच वाखानण्याजोगी आहे.

मी अपेक्षा करतो की अशीच नाटके मराठीत येतील आणि मराठी प्रेक्षक मोठ्या प्रमाणात मराठी नाटके पाहील.

i watched your play on saturday 1st sept 2007 at prabodhan, borivali.
really nice one i've seen in many years.
comedy is good but parallel track of politics and newsmakers[i can't say news channels??] is the one thing i liked quite a lot.
best of luck for your future projects.
and thanx for giving us such a nice treat.

Parava Yashwantrao Chavan la apla Prayog pahila. Lekhakane atishay chan lekhan kele ahe. Parantu ya natakavishayi jitaki apekha hoti ti purna nahi zali. Ya apeksha bhangache ek karan mhanaje he natak thodya velane eksuri ani predictable hote ani mag kantala yevu lagato.
Natakachi kalpana chan ahe pan ti titakya changalya prakare develop nahi zali. TV news cha prayog means prekshakala natakacha context spoon feedng kelyasarakha kinva tyala ghodyacha chashma lavalyasarakha vatato. Yatil Makad sodale tar dusari kuthali vyaktirekha prabhavi nahi. Overall a good attempt but not upto mark. He natak ajun changale hovu shakale asate.

Hi, I am Ganesh Malvankar,today 7.10.2007 I saw the NATAAK at KALIDAS, Mulund.
Excellent analysis of Human mind,thoughts behind the words,hidden interpretations in behaving are shown very clearly.Pscychological theory such as TRANSACTIONAL ANALYSIS was experienced in some parts of the NATAK.
End was abrupt, Could have been better.

Seen THE drama twice and enjoyed thoroughly both the times. Congrats and good wishes to the team. It is good that a drama more like type of experimental theatre is commercially successful.
In the second act when makad gives course to chaku, can you make it more interesting? Because while watching the play for second time at only that portion gave me a feeling of repetition that I am watching it second time. Or otherwise a beautiful play one can watch as many times.

hi,i am sanjay sawant
i have seen your play atleast 8 to 10 times. it was a wonderful play.
the original casting was so perfect. after sandesh kulkarni left the show it is not worth watching. i have been watching your play from the start. your set is looking very ugly. my request to the producer, to spent some money for making new set and also for the costumes of the artists.your's is an award winning play. it is very sad to see such a good play in a bad shape. your team has perfomed in dubai and america. it is a shame for our country to send this rubbish set around the world. hope you"ll do the needful at the earliest. your well-wisher sanjay sawant.

नमस्कार मी (अशोक पुणेकर) आत्ताच तुमचं माकडाच्या हती शॅम्पेन पहीलं (१८ नोहेंंबर २००७)

नाटक खूप आवडलं हे सांगायला नकोच!

ह्या नाटकांपासून स्फुर्ती घेउन अशीच दर्जेदार नाटकं पहायला मिळोत ही अपेक्षा!

I am Pravin Joshi and saw this play at Pr. Thakre, Borivali on 18th Nov'2007.

The play was entertaining and hilarious supported with good script, acting. I saw most of the women laughing when Makad teaches Chaku on the intracacies of the marriage life, especially that of the married lady, her thoughts etc.

The cast is wonderful and each of them know their strenght and punch delivery was superb.

The end could have been more dramatic as one could not really feel that the drama is going to end now.

I saw the play yesterday at BalGandarva (20 Nov 2007 9.30 PM Show). It was superb. I haven't laughed this much recently while seeing such type of plays.
Anand has a great potenial as an actor. His dialogue delivery is beautiful.
What i liked most is pensil's (Sharvani) beauty. She is awesome. She is Gorgeous. She is stunning. She is Dazzling. She is Astounding. She is Amazing. But she needs to work more on dialog delivery & voice.
Overall this play is complete package & must watch. Every family must watch this.
Thanks to the whole team for such a brilliant play.

Best luck
