BEHIND THE SCENES
Cruelty that prevails among the daughters-in-law has been highlighted in this family melodrama. But, are all daughters-in-law cruel towards their mothers-in-law? After marriage, do they all seek the end of their husband’s family? This thought needs introspection.
Candida steals the show with her splendid performance, and is outstanding among all the artistes. She also deserves full marks for her prompt dialogue delivery and dress code.
Willy Silveira, Pierson and Francisco have extended good support to the lead actor. There’s Candida Mascarenhas who equally wins the hearts of the audience as the aged mother-in-law.
Check her out when she recovers, returns home and gets into a conversation with her daughter-in-law.
Arnaldo da Costa and Eliterio da Costa portray police inspectors. Check out Eliterio when he gets into the investigation net, cross questioning Amber.
To melt those tense moments on stage, John D’Silva, Nato, David, Stephen and Alika come together for some comical scenes and they entertain with some laughter pills. However, the speech carrying a double meaning could have been avoided.
Scully, Faviola, Alika and Juvency step on stage with the opening song. Candida follows with a solo thereafter. There are solos from Francisco, Peviola and Juvency.
Willy and Scully come with a song about musicians and singers and it is entertaining. Peviola, Scully and Juvency also render a song on stage.
There’s a child artiste Dilan, who renders a comic song and receives an encore. With Selwyn on the trumpet, there’s Theo Alvares on the second trumpet, Richard (keyboard), Joman (bass) and Jack on the drums and the musicians provide good live music.
Apart from good acts on stage, there are three eye-catching scenes as well to be enjoyed in between the songs.
Reggie and Agnelo have handled the stage sets, while Ratna has taken good care of the lights.
