Birpurush is a 2010 Bengali drama[1] staged by Kolkata based theatre group Swapnasandhani and directed by Kaushik Sen.[2][3]


The drama is inspired by Rabindranath Tagore's poem Birpurush, it was not a children's play (though it was misinterpreted like that). The play had some amount of violence in it. The story was based on contemporary social and political condition of West Bengal.[2] A wounded soldier and a Maoist get trapped in a forest and there they both claim to be Birpurush (brave man).[4] There were some characters like 'Kishen Kanhaiya', 'Buddhadesh' and 'Monmohinidesh' which mocked real life personalities. In this play Kaushik Sen acted as himself and it is a self-critical character.[2]
