Engrossing, enigmatic: Magician Nipin Niravath has homeworked a lot before attempting his feat.
Thiruvananthapuram: Packed audience at the Vailopilly Samskriti Bhawavn here on 17th of April, was led to Mentalism, a branch of magic that has more mind-reading aspects than usual sleights of hands. Thanks to Nipin Niravath the young mentalist.
For around 60 minutes, audience including the Minister of Devaswom, Kadannappally Ramachandran; Soorya Krishnamoorthy and Honorary Director of the Magic Academy, R. Raja Moorthy were kept under Mr. Niravath’s spell. With the power of his eyes he could even bend a couple of stubborn iron rods and burst an incandescent bulb. Another audience member was at happy times to have the magician influence his mind and unearth pleasant days of his childhood.
Mr. Niravath’s careful selection of the backdrop, speech and music only made the event impressive. “It’s beyond words. Totally different kind of magical presentation I have ever seen”, was how the show was described by the Minister.
