Chintan Pandya’s “Raashi Man” is inspired from
Ryunosuke Akutagawa’s short stories ‘In a Grove’ and ‘Rashomon’. It is set in the 1850’s in Uttrakhand, India and is a brilliant adaptation of the Japanese short stories which have been portrayed in an Indian context, both culturally and linguistically. Inspired by the same stories, the acclaimed Japanese filmmaker Akira Kurosawa made a film called “Rashomon”, which ended up coining the term ‘Rashomon Effect’. This term means, “one that points out differing perspectives of the same incident”.

The story revolves around a horrendous and mysterious murder. A court trial follows suit three days later. However, the unusual aspect of the play is the stark difference between the testimonies of those involved either as a victim, witness or a suspect.

“Raashi Man” is rich with live music and songs. The Hindi language in this musical is tinted with certain northern dialects of India such as Punjabi, Garhwali and Kumaoni. The act takes the audience through a roller coaster journey as they witness the puzzling psychology of mankind.

Who speaks the truth? Which version is the truth? Do ghosts speak the truth? Could there be more than one truth?
Come and explore the testimonies to find out for yourself what “could be” the truth!
