Over the years, television and other avenues have replaced the traditional theatre performances, but the art is certainly not lost. Through HOMETHEATRE we hope to not only bring back the beautiful performances to television audience but also prove the entertainment validity of the performing arts.

With Bratya Basu steering the show will influence a trend that will give rise to new perspective towards theatre performances.”
Bratya Basu said, “Theatre is an exhilarating experience not only for performers but also the audience. Theatre as a medium of communication mirrors our society and creates cognizance. In the recent past, audience lost interest in the performing arts. However, the connoisseurs and patrons of theatre, continued to support the art. With HOMETHEATRE, we are bringing back that love and adulation through stunning stories and some stirring performances.”
