Review= Love Bytes
I was here in Taj Vivanta,Mumbai India, as a guest and I caught up with a lovely new age play called Love Bytes.
Directed and written by Divya Palat http://www.divyapalat.com , this play explores the emotional turbulences of the digiterati, the Facebook status changes, and the complete life cycle of the supply chain of love.
From teenage puppy love, to double income 1 kid, to geeky nerd afraid to talk to the beauteous girl in office,and the live in couple with no pressure to marry – this s when Harry met Sally plus Its Complicated all mashed together with anthemic rock songs between the acts.
I loved the humor and the satire though the second act did drag on my nerves with the puns on African American rappers, extinct parsis species, and mild homophobia in father son relationships. One solo act stood out for the funny words..
Welcome brave new world of Bollywood.
Or maybe I should say Bollyway-wood.
This is too much, and that was out of line,
Some people get on your nerves
Like a LoL cat playing with twine
Manipulating perception, you say is okay
Disregarding your intelligence is not
Relentless selling crapola in turf wars fiercely fought.
Brave new world has all kinds of fair game
The world was always a stage
But with so many actors things wont remain the same
Enhanced volatility Higher risks greater rewards
Loud is the applause when you make the keynote
Louder will the boos when proud men fall.
Lions hunt better but hyenas feed better
because hyenas are better team players you see
Bearing agony of uncertainty, to succeed is ecstasy
Relax Rewind Recalibrate and Pause
Total up your material gains
Ignore your conscience costs
Snap and turn, go back to your comfort zone
Stories sell better
Poetry is a drone
