Meeting Hari!

Chetan Bhagat’s ‘Five Point Someone’ was a mega hit on stage, and we are now bringing it back to Bangalore this month- Novemeber 9th, 10th and 11th. Amidst this, we managed to catch up with Sudharshan Krishnan, who plays the role of Hari- the most prominent character in the play. He is now a full-timer at Evam, who is smart, funny, boyishly handsome, and threatens to go on the General Motors diet ever so often. No real success story there. Heeere’s Susa! :D

Us:  How similar are you to Hari?

Susa: Hari in every scene of the play is either smoking, drinking or making out. Can’t say that is the story of my life.. :)

Us:  Do you think the play does justice to Chetan Bhagat’s book?

Susa: There was a twitter war involving the man. One of his staunch (online) opponents saw the play and told us that it was commendable we’d created something magical on stage from a Chetan Bhagat novel. A little double edged, but a glowing compliment nonetheless.. :)

Us: Tell us a little something about your auditions for the role.

Susa: I don’t remember doing a particularly hot job at the audition. But when the crowd assembled thought I was a ship designer (as against the chip designer I actually was) they all thought I was a very interesting person. That’s all i’m saying.. :P

Us: Which city was the play received at best?

Susa: Chennai! Although Rangashankara comes a close second..

Us: Now that you’re a full-time Evam employee, how much cooler is it than when you were just acting for Evam?

Susa: It was way cooler when I had a geeky day job through the week, and flew out to different cities every weekend for a show..

Us: A little something for the Bangalore audience to look forward to this time?

Susa: Some high energy entertainment.. :)

Us: About that GM diet… EVER going to happen? :P

Susa: Not while pizza’s a call away.. :P

Told you there was no success story there!

    I watched the play at Rangashankara quite sometime back and I think the play was so much better than the book itself, and so much better than 3 idiots too – the acting more realistic and the jokes more original (atleast at those parts where you deviated from the book).

    I’m not so much of a Chetan Bhagat fan and I always thought Five Point Someone as a book was kind of lame. The only reason I came to watch the play was for the evam tag – and guess what, I wasn’t disappointed! I thoroughly enjoyed the play. Taking a boring book and making it into an interesting play is not something everyone can do. Keep up the good work, and keep making us laugh :)
