Aryan Heritage Foundation spearheaded by Rajender Mittal welcomed audiences for an unforgettable experience with their rendition of “Broadway Ramlila” from Thursday, September 29th to Tuesday, October 4th, 2022 at Netaji Subhash Place (Near Omaxe Mall), Pitampura, New Delhi.
Ramayana- The most epic of epics, is as old as time. There have been endless tellings of this saga, but even today, the charm of Lord Ram’s life feels so fresh and relevant. It has been the guiding light for the human race for thousands of years. Ramanand Sagar brought Ramayana to every home in the 80s, and now Aryan Heritage Foundation’s Broadway Ramlila is bringing the same magic to the audience, in the form of a grand stage production. The most important achievement of this production is that it shows the entire story of Ramayana in mere three hours.
It is a spectacular comeback for Aryan Heritage Foundation’s “Broadway Ramlila” as the show intends to be donning a new avatar adding new interesting character arcs of Ahilya, Kaykai, Hanuman, and Ravan to be portrayed on a bigger stage and grander sets, embellished with vibrant and tasteful costumes; augmented by surround sound.
“Broadway Ramlila” uses simple Hindi language, epic music and stage design, spectacular costumes, breathtaking performances, all this while giving life lessons from Lord Ram’s teachings in order to condition tender minds.
The show reached the zenith of its popularity during the pandemic years when it reinvented its portrayal and became India’s First Ramlila to be screened at Multiplexes, following all covid protocols. Now the production is also widely referred to as the Multiplex Ramlila.
Also known as Sampurna Ramayana, the spectacle aims at providing a life-like surreal experience to the audiences transporting them to Tretayug. This amazing feat is accomplished with the help of a state of the art 3D Multi-Layer Stage Design, 17 Original Sound Tracks by Udit Narayan, Kailash Kher, Kumar Vishu, Jeetender Singh and others, Music Direction by Chandra Kamal & Bharat Kamal, Direction by Shashidharan Nair, more than 100 professional actors and dancers, spectacular sets and costumes, and of course a tightly weaved narrative by Valmiki, voiced by Mukesh Khanna, which grips the attention of audience for the entire duration of show.
Rajender Mittal, creator of “Broadway Ramlila” and President of Aryan Heritage Foundation is elated with the response his production has received in the past years and says, “We are overwhelmed with the response we have received from our patrons. The success of screening Broadway Ramlila at Multiplexes is testimony to the love we have received with our comeback show post pandemic. With our rendition of Ramayana we intend to nurture tender minds and bring them to appreciate the heritage of Incredible India. In order to turn this dream into reality, our production uses modern technology and nuances to bring audiences face to face with the practical application of morals and teachings from the whole life of Lord Ram.”
It is noteworthy that Delhi Government organized the Sunderkand portion of Broadway Ramlila on Hanuman Jayanti, and the Chief Minister announced that this Sunderkand shall be performed in all constituencies of Delhi.
