Hengool Theatre, which is known for presenting realistic dramas with strong social themes, is going to stage three such plays in the new season.

Another two plays selected for the season are ‘Chambalor Majnu’ and ‘Jooj’-the former depicting a tragic love story and the latter shows a sweet love story.
Prasenjit and Shyamantika will play the lead characters of all these three plays as well. The story that portrays the emotions of a dacoit with his shortcomings is penned by Abhijeet Bhattacharjya and will be directed by the play wright himself. Tarali Sarma will be the music director.
The third play ‘Jooj’ will also be directed by Sankalpajit. It has been written by Binoy Saikia, and the music is by Sibabrata Sarma. Going by the name, ‘Jooj’ is about surviving fights in all the aspects of life, which is demonstrated by showcasing the ups and downs of two families with a sweet love story. The others artistes in the cast are Sanjiv Sarma, Alokjyoti Saikia, Jiban Hatikakati, Biren Bhuyan, Debajit Borah, Sankar Rajkhowa, Dhrubajyoti Dhekiyal Phukan, Kasturi Phukan, Barnali Baruah and child artist Bikash Dutta.
