About Play : Chakravyuh features Nitish Bharadwaj as Krishna who comes back in this avatar after 25 years. It's a step ahead from Theatre that is being done and seen, for the past many years as it goes back to traditional form of storytelling where a rich text takes the driving seat. Actors sing the story on their own while creating a deadly war-scene on stage to give the audiences a value for their money. The sight of a 16-year-old young fighter, who bears on his shoulder the name and legacy of the most acclaimed archer of all times, Arjuna, fighting alone with seven of the greatest warriors ever, undoubtedly gives one goose bumps. But the story of 'Abhimanyu' and the 'Chakravyuh' that he fought and died in has more to it and this is what this presentation tries to bring out. The questions posed by 'Uttara' before Lord Krishna and other care-takers of 'right' appear relevant when she asks them about the rules that were laid down before the war. Ultimately, it is and it had to be Krishna who has all the answers coming in the form of questions only. Why mourn over the fact that Abhimanyu could not make his way out of the Chakravyuh when no one else has ever been able to do so? Everybody around is fighting in his own Chakravyuh and has never been able to come out of them. This whole life is a Chakravyuh and everyone is Abhimanyu

The Films and Theatre Society is a five years old registered under Societies Registration Act, 1860 on All India Basis. The main objective of the society is the production and promotion of theatrical plays, short (a nd other) films and other performing arts such as dance and music in India, with a special focus and concentration on Indian arts. Other objectives of the society inter-alia include furtherance of literature, creative arts related to theatre and films and other art forms, and making available to its members resources connected thereto. The Films & Theatre Society (FTS) is arguably one of the very few theatre and arts societies in Delhi who have members from diversified professions and educational backgrounds. It is here in FTS, that one sees professors and students of same colleges sharing the stage with each other. We are a team of around 60 young people working in various industries, in different capacities or people who are students of various streams and this brings you the table of variety of thoughts, ideas and expressions. But what is common to all of them is the passion for theatre and arts and a creative appetite. FTS has done over fifty stage shows of eight full length theatre productions in nine different cities of India through over 150 actors trained by it. It has successfully organized and managed five large scale festivals since July 2011 in partnership with many corporate, government, media and social organizations. Encouraged by the acceptance and acknowledgement from the varied audience and eminent theatre personalities, FTS is determined to take its productions to various parts of India and abroad to showcase their art. Another peculiar feature about the society is that in spite of being a weekend arts group it has been able to come up with productions which match up to the standards of any other professional group working in related field. This is the reason various companies, corporate houses and other institutional bodies have shown interest and extended their support to the activities and production of the society. FTS directs all its efforts towards promotion of the dying arts of theatre, folk music and dance among its members and others through constant workshops, exercises and sessions which has helped in building a strong performing culture among members of the society.
