Among the early masterpieces of post-Independence Indian theatre, ‘Tughlaq’ deserves a special mention. Director Debesh Chattopadhyay reinterprets the dreams and delusions of the most remarkable Sultan of medieval India. The play starts with Tughlaq being portrayed as a strict yet respected ruler. It dramatically highlights the importance of credibility and authenticity for a leader. Some of his subjects are clever enough to identify and misuse the loopholes in every law so that they can profit. “Tughlaq” highlights a plethora of social problems.
