Third Person in a Relationship

Third Person in a Relationship

Pio Esteves

The story revolves around Bernard (Roseferns), who is blessed with two sons, the eldest Nathan (Benzer) is an engineer and the younger son Mark (Prakash Marathe) is a football player. Andrea (Meena) is adopted and also part of the family and she takes care of everything. Bernard treats Andrea as one of the members of the household.  

Nathan is in love with Ruby (Candida). Nathan’s father is aware of his son’s involvement and affair with Ruby and warns him of dire consequences. Ruby is already involved with a rich businessman from Delhi, Jonathan (Remson), but she fears that he may ditch her anytime. And so she continues being close to Nathan.

Mark has a soft corner for Andrea, but does not know how to express his love for her. Before stepping out of Goa, he pens a letter to her, expressing his heart’s desire. Mark hands over the letter to Ruby to be delivered to Andrea.

Now, Ruby is all set to build a barrier between Mark and Andrea. How does she work on it? Will she be successful in her wicked mission? What is the outcome?

Roseferns’ 104th production ‘Girgirem’ focuses on relationships and how entry of the third party can spoil good ties. The focus is on how such people are never stable in their dealings with others, but continue creating drifts.

All the artistes have played their respective roles with ease. As usual, Roseferns stands tall as the father and he is ably assisted by Benzer, Prakash and Meena. Candida plays her negative character with gusto. Remson does a fine cameo and supports the main cast.

In the comic acts, there’s Ben Evangelisto who entertains with Agnelo, Alika and Steven. The four comedians are at their hilarious best.

In the section of songs, Remson steps on stage for the opening song, followed by solos from Rons, Meena, Roseferns and Steven. There are songs from Candida and Benzer, Rons and Remson, Agnelo, Meena and Ben Evangelisto. A quartet from Agnelo, Ben Evangelisto, Benzer and Remson receive an encore. The five-member band, led by Alloy, provided good live music. 

The stage sets are by Anthony de Ambaji and lights have been handled by Sanyo.
