Saravanaperumal S rated it it was amazing Nov 06, It carries the prestige of over 47 years of retail experience.

If she were as dazzling as Draupaudi, the play would not have been able to align its politics in the right direction.

Actors commonly address the audience directly, breaking the fourth-wall. I am sure many haywvadana disagree with the ending she got. May 12, Deepti rated it it was ok Shelves: But what can one do?
