A whiff of Basheer 'Under the Mangosteen Tree'

Kochi: Chennai-based theatre group ‘Perch’ performed “Under the Mangosteen Tree,” a medley of stories - Poovan Pazham, Neela Velicham, Mathilukal, Shabdangal, Viswavikhayatamaya Mookku and Oru Manushyan - by the fabulist, Vaikom Mohammed Basheer in JTPac. They were with linked by the thread of love, humour, adventure and pathos. The play directed by Rajiv Krishnan has been staged nearly 60 times. As Jameela Beevi, actress Aparna Gopinath personified whimsicality, with Iswar Srikumar playing the part of Abdul Khader matching her histrionics, leaving the audience in splits. Iswar also essayed the role of the young Basheer, while Paul Mathew gave a fine performance as the mature writer.
