Director Ahi Karunaharan brings My Heart Goes Thadak Thadak to Auckland audiences this November and December. The theatre production shares an Indian tale of hope and exuberance, complete with showdowns, divas, dancing, movie magic and a few surprises along the way.

The story is set in Bombay in the 1970s. It shares the story of how Roshan and Kamala, the two children of Bollywood director Rakesh Ramsey, must step up after their father's untimely death during the shooting of his latest film.

The film, Dust of the Delhi Plains is a desi western in every sense — it includes sweeping landscapes, gunfights on horseback, saloons and bounty-hunters. However Roshan and Kamala find the promised hit is rife with problems, including an unhappy crew, depleted funds and an actor with an ever-expanding ego.

Ahi Karunaharan is also behind A Fine Balance, Tea, Swabhoomi: Borrowed Earth. He's joined by Designers Leon Radojkovic, Daniel Williams, Jennifer Lal, Padma Akula and choreographer Pamela Sidhu. The play is suitable for ages ten and over with tickets starting at $35.
