(MENAFN - Muscat Daily) Bangiya Parishad, the Bengali wing of Indian Social Club (ISC), Muscat, staged their drama Sesh Anko (The last Episode) at the Oman Auditorium of Al Bustan Palace, a Ritz-Carlton Hotel on March 28. The drama, written and directed by Swapan Chakraborty, was a grand success. 

The Bengali wing of ISC, Muscat, carries the reputation for hosting major cultural shows with their local talents. Sesh Anko is surely another feather in their cap. A sleek and marmoreal depiction of the story, with excellent script, efficient direction, proficient acting, well composed music, beauteous dresses and make up, and ideal stage lighting, made Sesh Anko a treat for the 500-odd audience. The success was a result of the month-long script writing and six months of rehearsals.

Director Swapan said, ''It is very easy to host a cultural evening with guest artistes from overseas. In such events, our involvement is practically nil. We have tremendous potential among our members and we already have displayed that in the mega musical events and dramas. ''For a drama of this length and quality there is no short cut.'' Sesh Anko is a drama inside a drama. Badal Majumdar, a jail-released despondent scriptwriter did not give the full script to the drama team.

That almost results in the cancellation of the show. However, the director of the team announces that Roy and Dhanuka, two very influential sponsors are coming to watch the drama rehearsal. Thus, he asks the audience to also watch the rehearsal. The timeline and backdrop of the drama is Sonakhali, a small village at the border of Bangladesh and India (West Bengal) during 1971 Bangladesh freedom movements. When an entire nation was fighting for freedom, a group of people led by an influential politically connected leader Big Boss was taking advantage of the chaotic war ambit.

Right from transfer of counterfeit goods to illegal trafficking, this group was involved in all kind of deceptive and insidious acts. The gang leader was a notorious criminal called Kalu Chacha. In this group, there was a person named Akash who was unlike the others. He was an unemployed young man who got intertwined in this vile association for need of money to treat his crippled brother. This group makes a plan to transfer out one of the young lady Amina, who has come in search of her father lost in war clutter. Akash finds Amina to be his childhood mate. They were separated at early age as Akash's father migrated to India. Akash tells her the truth and assures to be her saviour but in vain. The group beats up Akash and Amina is handed over to Big Boss. Amina, in extreme funk, screams, and Big Boss, concerned over his political stature, strangles her to death.

To save Big Boss, the group frames Akash and Akash gets life imprisonment. In absence of the script for the last episode, the director announces finality of the show without a conclusion but the despondent, apparently insane script writer Badal asks not to close the screen. He comes to stage and announces himself as the character Akash and addresses Roy, the sponsor as Big Boss and also accuses Roy for the truculent murder of Amina. No one believes Badal and escort the sponsors to safety.

Frustrated and derelict Badal, stays on the stage loosing all his hope for a justice. At the end, the entire team comes back and assure Badal that the drama will be staged again and again until the villain Roy (Big Boss) is not exposed and request Badal to tell the whole story to the audience. Badal starts recounting the story once more... .
