Ente Rakshakan, meaning, My Saviour, is a huge production that features 150 artistes and around 50 animals and birds. Pratheesh plays the lead character of Jesus Christ in the play. Poet V Madhusoodanan Nair has penned the lyrics for Ente Rakshakan while it has its music composed by Pundit Ramesh Narayan. Pattanam Rasheed has done the make-up for the show. The entire cast and crew are from Soorya Theatre. The 2-hour show will be staged on a huge platform at the school campus.
It was spectacular. It was done with such care that even minute details have been studied and reproduced. It is a really monumental work and I recommend everyone in our society see it.
“Enthralling audiovisual, creative and spiritual experience. In dramatic techniques, it explores new grounds. All of us in the audience felt we were not mere viewers, but active witness and participants in the tumultuous events amid us”
“The artistes and Moorthy were on a spiritual pilgrimage with prayers and fasting as they rehearsed. In two scenes, crucial for Judas and peter, I wept with out relising tears rolling down”
“This is about the embodiment of love that changed the course of history from punishment to the path of redemption. Amazing! Divine events have been lyrically woven into the dance drame form”
