SUAR CHALA SPACE KO - Press coverage

Press Coverage

Bombay Times (Review by Deepa Gahlot)

Shaili Sathyu opened the first production with her newly formed group Suar Chala Space Ko at the Horniman Circle Gardens... kids sat back and enjoyed the play. It was a simple production, which made good use of available resources, to create a spaceship through shadow play and an alien planet with a large swathe of red cloth and choreography. The plot about two kids and their pets who make a quick trip into space with strange consequences, is rather slim, the costumes of the animals and the aliens are kept simple the production shows what can be done with a low budget and loads of imagination. Kids in the audience, have to suspend disbelief (you can’t, for instance, go Mars and back in a few hours), and just enjoy the experience.

Mumbai Theatre Guide (Review by Sudeep Modak)

..... script is tight and compact. It is filled with interesting ideas and twists and turns which hold the audience for the most part. The playwright has created some interesting characters in the form of the chirpy mausi, the whacky doctors, and the multi-lingual aliens. The light tone and humor of the play helps to set the mood and the pace.
.....The play is written in a way that its success heavily depends on the visual design. And the director has done a good job of creating the necessary illusion to support the script. The play's most important device is the design of the space ship. The director plays with shadows throughout the space ship scenes thus enthralling and fascinating its audience.
.....The play entertains and fascinates the children. They also connect well with the characters and the central idea of this play. It creates the desired impact on its audience often inspiring awe and making them laugh.
