Review for "The Plein Air Plays" at the Ancram Opera House

12 AUG 2023

"The first play, Made in Pakistan by Mukta Phatak, takes place on the spacious grounds of Ancram Town hall where the space is framed by trees and sky. The actor Abuzar Farrukh has appeared in Berkshire area theatres including Ancram’s production of Invasion last season which won a Berkshire Theatre Critics award for best ensemble.
Abuzar charms the audience with his charismatic smile. The play requires that he change tones in a moment which he does seamlessly. Phatak’s play in this actor’s hands is compelling. Director Ricciardi keeps the pace moving through several melancholy moments. It is probably the first play in which an actor leaves the playing area in a golf cart."

Review: Chester Theater, "Guards at the Taj"

9 JULY 2023

"Abuzar Farrukh (Babur) and Ruchir Khazanchi (Humayun) portray low-level imperial guards, who are tasked with the impossible duty of guarding the Taj Mahal without looking at it. Abuzar’s depth and breadth of emotion is stellar. From his bawdy antics with a twinkle of innocent wonder to his tortured writhing onstage, he is never more committed to his role than in Babur’s guilt-ridden anguish over the atrocities he was forced to commit."

CTC’s “Guards at the Taj” is a Beauty

11 JULY 2023

"We are waiting for dawn when the show opens, which will reveal the Taj in all its beauty and glory. The titular characters are Humayan, played by Ruchir Khazanchi with an open, appealing loyalty which proves tragic by the end of the play; and the live wire Babur, played with intense mischievous creativity by Abuzar Farrukh."

World Premiere of "The Night Diary" at the Children's Theatre of Charlotte

27 FEB 2023

"Last year brought a harrowing anniversary: It had been 75 years since the Partition of 1947—a violent, historic act that split Colonial India into Pakistan and India. This is the backdrop of the book The Night Diary by Veera Hiranandani, which follows the event through the eyes of 12-year-old Nisha. Half-Muslim, half-Hindu, Nisha struggles to determine the answers to painful questions: Which country wants me? Where do I fit?"

REVIEW: “Invasion!” plays at the Ancram Opera house through August 21

10 AUGUST 2022

"Ahmad Maher and Abuzar Farrukh often work in tandem in this play, although they create their own special characters as the play goes on. His many roles in this play are as different as they can be, and his flair for moving among them is excellent."

Review: ‘Disgraced’ at Chester Theatre Company

10 JULY 2018

"Abe is played by Abuzar Farrukh, who does a very nice job with his two scenes. This role of Abe is intended to bring us information but, as played by Farrukh, it also brings us the humility that has gone missing."
