Charukesi is a play that would indeed warm the hearts of theatre aficionados and treat them to an enchanting Tamil play turned on life, music, and the enduring power of art. Aptly named after the Carnatic raga "Charukesi", this theatrical gem was brought to life by the United Amateur Artists (UAA) theatre group directed by the legendary Y.Gee Mahendra.

The plot revolves around Charukesi, a famed musician whose battle with Alzheimer’s disease is relentless after he loses his musical prowess through age as well as being ridiculed by those who once celebrated him because of it. The journey through family, memory, and artist spirit becomes moving for Charukuai throughout.

With Venkat inspired by the late ‘Crazy’ Mohan, this script skillfully deals with these aspects. Art never truly lost its place; legends continue to live in every one of us.

Y. Gee. Mahendra, playing Charukesi, has brought out moments of pure emotional intensity that will tear at the heart strings of the audience. Tears flow as he shows how Charukesi struggles to remember lyrics during a concert.

Poignant scenes mixed up with trademark YGM-style comedy showcased through interactions between Charukesi, Chellappa, and Suppini give depth and balance to the narrative.

"Charukesi" is no play; it’s an experience that dives deep into the profound connection between music, memory, and the human spirit. Yes, this show is worth watching for theatre buffs and classical music lovers too.

Apart from that, the play received appreciation from none other than superstar Rajinikanth himself, who appreciated the entire team and hosted them at his residence after watching the performance. Such recognition spoke volumes about the impact of the play.

For those who wish to feel this heart-wrenching theatrical journey, mark your calendars for the coming performance of "Charukesi":
