Did you know about these exciting folk theatre forms in Maharashtra?

gmail

Who can forget Priyanka Chopra and Deepika Padukone dancing to Pinga from Bajirao Mastani? The two beauties set the screen on fire with their Lavanirendition and we definitely couldn’t take our eyes off them!Bollywood’s fascination with Lavani has gone on for a while, but there are other traditional and vibrant folk art forms that Maharashtra boasts of. These are some of our top picks:

1. Tamasha
No Marathi movie in the 50s and 60s was complete without a Tamasha song in it. Tamasha is one of Maharashtra’s pioneering art forms. It skilfully combines plays with musical and dance performances. Catchy music, high-energy dance moves and lyrics that border on amorous: it’s the perfect formula to keep the viewers hooked to the act. It has been said that Tamasha artistes were treated like rock stars in their heyday!

2. Gondhal
Gondhal literally means commotion. This dramatised enactment of a mythological story or a folk legendisa ritual during important ceremonies such as weddings. What’s interesting about Gondhal is that it only has male actors who sing, dance and narrate their stories to the beats of drums and cymbals. The Gondhalis also try to intersperse their narrations with social messages.
