I am your great fan.I have seen almost all of your perfomances.Every time you try to give something new to your audience right from Chimanrao to Gangadhar Tipre and i appreciate that.You have a long way to go May God bless you.
Mr. Prabhavalkar has built the house of Marathi theatre; he is easily a founding father, (perhaps he would prefer to be called a replenishing father since the members of this guild must have been quite formidable when he joined it). He has been a sensibility renewing agent, just as religions require a messeniac one. So, what is the Prabhavalar technique? Chastity of language, to begin with (more rigorous than his peers). A keen sense of how his body moves, and how it can be incorporated into the humour (a batsman, if you will, you knows where his off-stump is anchored at any given time). He makes his tall, spare frame as his puppet. And, to cite another property, his identity; him being a middle-class Marathi man has given him the ear and the knowledge of how and what his audience joke about, and live like. Mr. Prabhavalkar is a man to be envied, working as he is in the very smithy of Marathi culture.
Your website is too good & I really appreciate your YOGDAN for Marathi Rangbhoomi. Since My father is working in Dinanath Mangeshkar Natygriha, Vile-Parle, There is my close connection with Marathi Rangbhoomi. But I didn't get to see your HASVAFASVI till. I would like to see if you start it again.
I loved the way Dilip Prabhavalkar changed his roles in HASVAPHASVI--Anyways he is the best actor, be it comedy or drama, in movies like -CHOUKAT RAJA
