Anand Owari-Kishore Kadam as an actor

Anand Owari is an important Marathi novel written by Late Di. Ba. Mokashi. he Owari (Verandah) outside the Vitthal Temple in Saint Tukaram's house, known as Anand Owari, was a witness to most of Tukaram's life. Once, Tukaram has disappeared as usual possibly lost in some deep spiritual trance. His younger brother, Kanhoba, unable to find him, gets frantic with the thought that he may have 'lost' Tukaram forever. He recalls Tukaram's spiritual journey, telling us about his life, his sensitive, revolutionary poetry and their relationship. He makes us come face to face with many perpetually important philosophical and social questions, including the validity of Tukaram's thought even today.

Vijay Tendulkar has edited Di. Ba. Mokashi's novel for the play. Directed by Atul Pethe, this tour de force establishes Kishore Kadam as an actor in the league of legendary performing artists in the world.
