Khushfahamiyaan – A word, an idea, alchemy or simply an extension of the soul of legend Urdu poet Ghalib’s magical couplet:
“Humko Maloom Hai Jannat Ki Hakeekat Lekin
Dil Ke Khush Rakhne Ko Ghalib Yeh Khayal Achcha Hai”
Written and directed by actor, trainer and mentor, Manil Mayank Mishra, Khushfahamiyaan 2 is a theatrical interpretation of all mirages we live in. Essentially, love, the tenderest of all emotions, which begins with promises and togetherness fizzles away with doubts in the practical world. Love encompasses hurt, grief and sorrow when not met with the great expectations it begins with. Life moves on but with a vacuum. Khushfahamiyaan celebrates and explains the agony of broken hearts and crumpled relationships. It also breaks the conventional myth that love can’t happen beyond a conventional relationship. It questions the political distance between nations and establishes that geographical differences can never separate human connection. It also tells the side of an estranged story as there was silence for there was nothing more to say then.
Khushfahamiyaan 2 is a story of a soulful man who doesn’t go for the correctness or logic behind love. He sees love as a pristine metaphor however, when it clashes with the perceived social definitions, he gets hurt but doesn’t let his soul go and consequently decides to be a loner. The stage production also explains how a rusty relationship can relive its lost moments if there is someone who can equally understand the pain and grief associated with it. Narrated from an organic and everyday’s perspective of a commoner, Khushfahamiyaan 2 is contemporary, today’s and very much in our lives. Conclusively, it’s a valid and beautiful extension of anybody’s dreams, aspirations and innocence which have been lost somewhere in the chaos of a practical world and its questions of sustenance.
