Janata Raja - a spectacle not to be missed!

जाणता राजा Janata Raja (The Understanding King) is a spectacular show on the life and times of Shivaji, the great. With over 500 actors, rotating stage and war scenes with elephants, camels and horses it is a show one should not miss! Even if you are not a Marathi Manoos and do not understand the language, the sheer scale is worth the effort. The crowning glory is the Rajyabhishekh (Coronation Ceremony) at the end of the play.

After a 3 year haitus, the show is back in Mumbai.... from 15th to 23rd November @ Andheri Sports Complex and from 6th to 14th December @ Vashi grounds.
Ticket rates at Andheri are 1000 for Sofa, 225 for front seats, 125 for back seats & 75 for stadium steps.

3M would like to pay his tributes to Babasaheb Purandare who had the courage to conceive stage a show on such grand scale!

Shivaji - this man is the most under valued aspect of Indian history. He is responsible for the position we are in today. If it were not for this great man, we would probably not even exist. Hats off to Babasaheb Purandare to help us relieve a glorious past.

As someone said in the previous post, a movie on the great man is apt.
