Capital City cascade in shadow of Mr. Acharya


Thiruvananthapuram: The capital city of Kerala flew away to the silhouette of well known magician Prahlad Acharya, who has imprinted his name in the world of Shadow Play and Ventriloquism as well.

Attending the 96th PPC of Magic Academy he has shared glimpse and tricks of doing both magic and shadow play. A special shadow section was also organized for the people of town at the fourth estate hall of Thiruvananthapuram Press Club.

The magical movement of fingers and palms through a thorough practice was beyond belief, when he made the shadow visuals for the evergreen song of Changampuzha, Ramanan. He has also made the live presentations of Doordarshan’s very old patriotic song, mile sur mera tumhara…. and the lines of Kannada folklore in the town where the mesmerized audience was on thorn to see the happenings of poor cow. Playing with the fingers on light to make brighten and sharp shadows on the screen, along with the long-established audio support, Prahlad stolen the minds of many.

The monkey pet of Acharya appeared naughty and counters the ventriloquist for silly matters was another hit he has made for the magic fans of Academy. As he voiced, India could wait for the shadow play of our epics too in the nearest future from the master of shadows.
