Akku

The play Akku in Kannada is an adaptation of three short stories namely Ammachiya Nenapugalu, Akku and Puttammatte Mommagalu by renowned Kannada litterateur Mrs. Vaidehi. The play is plotted in a seemingly different narrative of very intrinsic sensibilities. The play primarily intends to capture and subtly express the continuous struggle of a woman in the society. The play explores beyond the perception of Akku's character as a mentally challenged woman, in her struggle for existence. The whimsical male characters portrayed in the play, control and play around the female characters through both - psychological and physical violence, thus limiting her role to physical means to quench their sexual desires. It haunts us as the different faces of the male are exposed in a male-dominant system. On the contrary, women appear to be imprisoned in a claustrophobic space directly or indirectly controlled by invisible threads.
