Some review Comments:
The Bengali-American group Ethnomedia from New Jersey, which stunned Calcutta last year with Ron, returned for the world premiere of dramatist-director Sudipta Bhawmik’s Satyameva. A senior executive body-shopping software engineers fires his incompetent new recruit, who pleads that he should not be sent back to India. By a remarkable plot of twists and turns (perhaps too many of them) Bhawmik conveys older Bengalis’ nostalgia for their birthplace and younger Bengalis’ desire to emigrate to America. Sankar Ghoshal and Indranil Mukherjee respectively give realistic portrayals of these parts, but the playwright’s craftsmanship tends to get the better of heartfelt emotions, which we had found in Ron. – Ananda Lal, telegraph
