ME, KASH AND CRUISE is the roller coaster story of three Bombayites and their attempts to deal with the city’s ever changing social, civic and political landscape - with mostly hilarious, and sometimes tragic consequences.The three protagonists – Pooja Thomas (unabashed Bombay lover), Rajesh Kashyap (true blue South Bombayite) and Cruise (A Delhiite, and named after the Hollywood star) traverse their way through the death of Indira Gandhi, the 1992 riots, the 1993 bomb blasts, the Moral Police and Bollywood mania, as well as the age of marketing and hype – among other dramatic events that have shaken and influenced our city…including man made disasters such as dug up roads and festival hysteria.A fourth character, mysteriously named BOMBAY winds through the play, donning many guises and avatars – a tout/photographer, a police inspector, a waiter, a festival devotee, a marketing executive, a rioteer and a psychiatrist.Me, Kash and Cruise is the story of every Bombayite.The play opened in May 2008 and has completed over 65 shows. It has traveled to Jaipur, Pune, Delhi, Chennai & Singapore.
The play is likely to make you feel less burdened at least momentarily and a lot more accepting of this city and your situation. All the better for it, for perhaps the only thing better than a work of art that makes you ponder, is one that feels like a great leisurely conversation with a very good friend.

Me, Kash and Cruise remains a perky affair. This is due largely to the wonderfully spontaneous Amit Mistry, who can put Mithun to shame when it comes to disco dancing and Rajit Kapur’s comic cameo. His smart- alecky walking supermarket by the Gateway, reveler during Ganesh Chaturthi and suave events manager are priceless.

Rahul’s plays seemed to have found their niche between theatre that is frowned upon as not relating to the masses and that theatre, which is dismissed as catering to the masses and which in all truth is often banal. This in-between space can have its own strengths and weaknesses. But Rage has certainly mastered the art of maximizing on the former in its productions.

Chennai was treated to a rare kind of theatrical experience on Saturday night as Rahul Da Cunha’s Me, Kash and Cruise was unleashed on the unsuspecting audiences…the drama was a sublimely humourous, but nevertheless power-packed ode to the city of Mumbai as seen through the eyes of its three incorruptible protagonists…the play came as a welcome relief to Chennaiites yearning for smart hard hitting works intended for a mature audience as the performers made for some truly thought provoking moments

Da Cunha’s attempt to weave in plenty of sub-texts and reveal several facets of this dynamic city in the span of 1 hour 35 minutes is admirable and almost successful. A must watch for the true blue Mumbaiite who cusses the traffic gods during Ganpati Visarjan and dances bhangra to the Macarena.
