Henrik Ibsenís Norwegian classic, Hedda Gabler, is the inspiration for Bhanu Bhartiís Teji Brar.
The director calls it a play of psychological realism which deals with an ambitious and articulate womanís inability to come to terms with the stifling bigotry of a small town. Trapped by society, the central character adopts a course of self destruction.
This is yet another play where Bhanu Bharti continues with his fascination for Indian and western masters. And Teji Brar, as it was said of Hedda Gabler in 1890, is a character study pure and simple. A character study that is worth embarking on.
