Natrang stages comedy play ‘Kava Chala Hans Ki Chaal’
UDHAMPUR, Aug 14: Natrang’s presented its Super Comedy play ‘Kava Chala Hans Ki Chaal’ at Dhruva Auditorium, Udhampur.

The play ‘Kauva Chala Hans Ki Chaal’ is Hindustani adaptation of world famous French comedy by Moliere and has been directed by Sumeet Sharma who is recipient of Country’s highest award in the field of performing arts for youth and heading children and youth wing of Natrang.

The play is based on the story of Kumar, a middle-aged "bourgeois" man whose father grew rich as a cloth-merchant. His sole aim in life is to rise above his middle-class background and be accepted as an aristocrat. To this end, he orders splendid new clothes and is very happy when anyone calls him ‘high class’. He applies himself to learning the gentlemanly arts of fencing, dancing, music and philosophy, despite his age. In doing so he continually manages to make a fool of himself, to the disgust of his hired teachers. His philosophy lesson becomes a basic lesson on language in which he is surprised and delighted to learn that he has been speaking "prose" all his life without knowing it. His intelligent wife sees that he is making a fool of himself and urges him to return to his previous middle-class life, and to forget all he has learned. A cash-strapped nobleman called ‘Chadha’ attaches himself to Kumar. He secretly despises him but flatters his aristocratic dreams by telling Mr Kumar that he has mentioned his name to the bureaucrats so that he can get Kumar to pay his debts. Kumar's dreams of becoming an aristocrat go higher and higher. He dreams of marrying a Princess and Chadha very cleverly promises him to facilitate his affair but actually he himself was dating with Princess on Kumar’s money.

Kumar’s daughter ‘Dolly’ loves a middle class boy Kukku but this relationship is not acceptable to Kumar as he is very class conscious and wants to marry his daughter in a very rich and reputed family. On this refusal, Bittu, Kukku’s close friend plots a plan, in which he introduces Kukku to Kumar as the Prince of some country who wants to honour Kumar by marrying his daughter. Kumar very easily falls in this trap and agrees to give his daughter to Kukku who is disguised as Prince.
