Play 'Aropi Hazir Ho' sends a strong road safety message
Under the biweekly theater scheme of Jawahar Kala Kendra , playing Aropi Hazir Ho was performed in the auditorium of Rangayan. The work was written and directed by Narendra Arora. The work analyzed the reasons and causes of traffic accidents and sent a strong message about road safety to help change people's mentality. The work focused mainly on traffic accidents and their causes.
The plot followed the story of some passengers who left for a getaway and traveled by bus. They decided to spend a night in one of the hotels en route. When they left the hotel the next morning, they realized that the bus was broken and it would take 3 to 4 hours to repair. All travelers spend time playing in the hotel lobby. But three older gentlemen were playing a different kind of game. They were a retired government lawyer, defense lawyer and judge. To spend their time, they fought mock cases in court. Others also wanted to play the game, but nobody wanted to be the accused. In search of a problem to combat a case, they decide on the issue of Road Accidents.
The first defendant was made a religious man named Manvendra. He is accused of spreading false and misleading thoughts about life and death. Such thoughts were causing men to walk carelessly on the roads. Amidst all prosecution, debate and discussion, Manvendra admitted his crime. After this, the discussion addressed the young people and truck drivers most affected by traffic accidents. After this, after the other accusations were placed directly and indirectly. The work reaches an important stage in which the souls of important people who died due to traffic accidents are shown.
These souls expressed the pain caused by traffic accidents. The work concluded by highlighting the responsibilities of each person and family. It also shows a couple who lost their young son in a car accident. Then it is discovered that the three gentlemen who were fighting the simulated cases never existed. At the end of the play, the public is left behind with questions such as: who were these three men? Are they representing three thoughts that each person has?
One who emerges as a lawyer first to discuss rights and mistakes and a judge who makes the final decision. Or maybe it was souls or angels that made everyone realize their responsibilities. The cast of the play included: Raman Mohan (judge), Yogendra (government lawyer), Mounuddin (defense lawyer). Other artists included: Mohan, Rajiv, Vinod, Anita, Amit, Anjali and Tanvir. Similarly, the lights were managed by Sanit, Navin's music and Asif's stage decoration.
