From the CD

Bidesia is known for its intensity of presentation, simplicity of language and unsophisticated style. It is not a dance form, but a kind of ‘tamasha’, which reflects the culture of the region. It has rich variety and emotional content. The ingredients of the play include a speech-samvad-, different forms of poetry like ‘pad’, short poem, ‘vachun’, geet (song), ghazal and also a dance. It is enacted at nigh on a raised mound, which serves as a tage, and locally available lights are used. The costumes and the material, used for make-up, are local, like sindhoor, kajal, etc. Bhikhari, Thakur, the doyen of Bhojpuri theatre, especially the form known as Bidesia, did tremendous work to popularize his theatre and mesmerized the audience. He has written plays in Bhojpuri dialect which have been published. Watch the film to know more.
