    Aakhiri Nazm – the countdown begins..

    In our bid to promote all mediums of art, culture & expression, Express Today is doing its bit in promoting theatre. We are the media partner for Aakhiri Nazm and have the onus upon us to keep you updated with the happenings & developments around the play.

    Aakhiri Nazm, a poetic drama written & directed by Syed Bilal is all set to enthrall the audience. On the 13th of January, the city of Nawabs & Kebabs will witness the first ever stage performance of Aakhiri Nazm. The journey which begins at Lucknow will take the theatre enthusiasts to the city of revolutionaries, Shahjahanpur and finally to the national capital, Delhi. Venue for the first show, starting at 6:30 PM on the 13th in Lucknow is Valmiki Auditorium, Sangeet Natak Akademi, Gomti Nagar.

    Aakhiri Nazm, produced by Samaji Group & powered by Theatre Learner’s Activity, has elements of Nazm & Shayaris and is a beautiful blend of prose and poetry. Samaji’s president, Rajesh Kumar is a renowned playwright & well known in literary & theatre circles for plays like Ambedkar aur Gandhi, Trial of Errors and many other such works. Syed Bilal & Rajesh Kumar worked together in many theatre plays in past. With able assistance from friends, peers and well-wishers, the lyrical play, Aakhiri Nazm hopes to build a niche space in the hearts of its audience. The marketing & promotions are being ably looked after by Abhinav Singh.

    We look forward to watching this artistic manifestation of the socio-religious constraints of our society. The team of Aakhiri Nazm must be commended for their efforts in trying to revive a lost genre of theatre.  Any attempt that intends to enthrall & educate at the same time is a good attempt. Aakhiri Nazm is once such effort.

    Stay tuned. The countdown has begun…
