Seldom has a cultural programme received such thunderous ovation as the Powai Fine Arts’ presentation of ‘Barsaat ki Raat’ by Klub Nostalgia. On 4th August 2013, the auditorium of SM Shetty School was overflowing as never before. The talented singers who enthralled the audience were none other than Rana Chatterjee, Sagar Savarkar, Sangeeta and Mona Kamat. Reflecting the different shades of monsoon moods: sometimes romantic, sometimes soulful or sometimes ecstatic, the old film melodies followed one after another to thunderous ovations. Stringing together the evening’s 27 songs, Premkumar’s insightful narration kept the audience in splits. The repertoire covered all the major music composers of the silver screen like Naushad, Madan Mohan and OP Nayyar. Starting with ‘Woh Chand Khila’ from Anari to ‘Diwana Hua Badal’ from Kashmir Ki Kali, the show ended with ‘Aaj Kal Tere Mere Sapne’ from Brahmchari. In between, ‘Zoobie Doobie’ from 3 Idiots rocked the scene!

The program was actively supported by Neelkanth Builders and Indian Oil. Ranjini Krishnaswami briefed the audience about the role of PFA in bringing performing arts to Powai in spite of all the odds, due to serious absence of a community centre in this relatively young suburb. She also pleaded for more sponsorships, particularly from the local corporates and citizens, to enable PFA to keep bringing good artists to Powai. Mr Venkatchalam of Klub Nostalgia informed about the charitable work they are doing for differently-abled.
