"A spectacle so grand it can fit only in your dreams."
-Theme of Kingdom of DreamsDelhi had added another star in its portfolio when Kingdom of Dreams opened in Gurgaon(Delhi NCR Region). Kingdom of Dreams popularly known as KoD is a theme park located on the outskirts of the capital city of India. Kingdom of Dreams has been launched in the year 2010 but later it has reached the heights of fame and popularity for its grandeur and attractions that it has to offer. There are many things in Kingdom of Dreams that are quite famous specifically the Culture Gully that has theme restaurants especially designed inside an alley which offers different food and drinks from across 14 different states of India and the two musical shows namely Zangoora & Jhumroo.
Zangoora is in fact one of the most popular and biggest Bollywood musical theater show in India which premiered on September 23, 2010 depicting the story of a Gypsy Prince throughout its course whose story, screenplay and dialogues are penned down with sheer finesse and brilliance by celebrated script-writer of India, Mr. Javed Akhtar and the musical maestro trio, Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy have given the music that gives the much appreciated soul to the show on which choreography is done by the Shiamak Davar Dance Company. Famous artists and dance experts like Hussain Kuwajerwala, Gauhar Khan and Kashmira Irani are the main leads of the show who perform at the special show timings and provide complete justice to their act by dancing and enacting the emotions of of their respective characters to the tunes of music. The show is staged in an equal opulent and pompous way inside the grand Nautankii Mahal. Let's talk about the pros and cons of Zangoora.
1. Aerial acts that is the highlight of this musical spectacle.
2. Spectacular combination of music and dance that sets it apart from its contemporaries and make it a standout from the lot.
3. Beautiful costumes of the artists which are designed by the top Indian Fashion Designer, Neeta Lulla are a delight to see and admire for the fashion lovers.
4. A complete stupendous and fine spectacle of live dance, music and drama in India
In my point of view, there are not many negative points really but still there exists some glitches. First of all, no photography and video making is all allowed during the live show. Secondly, the show tickets are expensive and after watching the show, it seems to look each penny spent was worthwhile but still money is money and scooping out a big sum from the wallet of hard-earned salary somewhere hurts.
Lastly, I would like to conclude it as the must watch theater show in India and if you make it a point to visit Delhi, then watching Zangoora should be on the top of priority list.
