'Puss is Back'
A comic president by the name of Chaminda Pusswedilla was the root
cause of the laughter at the Lionel Wendt last Sunday that cheered
people up despite Sri Lanka not winning the ICC 20-20 World Cup.
Laughing gas was sprayed everywhere when theater-goers were shown 24
hours in the day in the life of a President (Puss). Anuraddha Fernando
acting as 'Puss' really did justice to his part by acting the big burly
role of hotshot Prez while still growing weak at the wrath of his M-I-L
(Mother in Law) Mabel Payagala who wanted to change her ambassador role
from India to USA.
Tackling controversial aspects of corruption, bribery, family

possible Puss impeachment has too many hair appointments to even think
of going there.
The Ms. French Diplomat highlights about the human rights situation
and the sworn and known translator who doesn't a French word tries to
give Puss a better understanding of the foreigner. All the while, we see

recording the days' events as Puss goes through the pains of being
The Puss drama is definitely worth seeing as it finishes this week
and is a good stress-reliever for all those who need a nice laugh
especially for those Singlish-talkers.
All in all, the drama revolves around the political circles and also
takes the pun in every one - from the government to the opposition which
might not be favourable under these environs.
However, drama is drama and Feroze Kamardeen and Sirraj Abdul have
done wonders while retaining the 'Puss' flavour while trying not to
ruffle any feathers. Various sponsors have also made this drama a
