Karachi:Mein adakara banungi! declares Sania Saeed quite the adept adakara in the Katha theatre group play that’s just begun staging at Karachi’s Arts Council, in collaboration with KopyKats Productions. Having proceeded to say this, she goes on to spearhead a theatrical act that is a barrel of laughs, interspersed with perceptive witticisms. Acting opposite Sania is Abdullah Farhatullah, as the adakara’s exasperated teacher. Fretting, fuming and painstakingly explaining the nuances of diction, he commendably holds his own against the veteran actress.
It’s a parody of the immorality and low-standards that now exist in the acting career, a caricature of a lower middle-class girl who dares to dream as well as a character sketch of a man with an intellectual superiority-complex.
