Tippu Sultan Ke Khwab

Tipu Sultan, one of the most politically perceptive & tragic figures in modern Indian history fascinated many playwrights for his bravery & courage in fighting against the British during the 18th century. He is known for a series of spectacular battles in & around present day Karnataka. The play presents Tipu Sultan, refracted through history in a different perspective - that of independent India and rescues him from distorted colonial perceptions. More importantly, the play is in a collective sense a reclamation of history; a truth very close to our hearts!! Of all the Kannadigas who have achieved national eminence in the last four centuries, Tipu Sultan stands out unparalleled both for his vision & valour. 

This play was earlier staged in English and in Kannada by different theater groups, however this is the first time an attempt was made to stage it in Hindustani (Hindi & Urdu) with a touch of our own Deccani as Tipu Sultan was born in Devanahalli near Bangalore. The purpose of staging the play was to highlight Tipu Sultans achievements & struggles and his immense contribution towards the motherland. The play is a magnum opus produced on a large scale canvas with 25 live actors on stage, with period costumes supported by as support crew of 15 off stage.
