My Heart Goes Thadak Thadak


Welcome to the City of Dreams: Bombay, the height of the 1970s.

The Asia New Zealand Foundation is proud to support Silo Theatre's My Heart Goes Thadak Thadak. Expect divas, dancing, showdowns and pure movie-making magic. 

Legendary Bollywood director Rakesh Ramsey has died in the middle of shooting his latest film, Dust of the Delhi Plains, an epic desi western with all the trappings: magnificent landscapes, gunfights on horseback, saloon bars and bounty-hunters.

My Heart Goes Thadak Thadak

Ramsey’s two children, Roshan and Kamala, are forced into the director’s chair. But they’ve inherited a disaster: the crew’s unhappy, the money’s all gone and the big Bollywood star is holding the production hostage. Can Roshan and Kamala bring their father’s dying dream to the big screen, or is Dust of the Delhi Plains as cursed as everyone says?

Created by visionary theatremaker Ahi Karunaharan (A Fine Balance, Tea, Swabhoomi: Borrowed Earth), My Heart Goes Thadak Thadak is a joyous and immersive night at the theatre filled with sibling showdowns, divas, dancing and pure movie-making magic.
