    "Chilsag Chillies, once again brings to Delhi a fresh script and youthful energy. “Wake up Call” successfully dissolves space an d role boundaries. The well and the stage are used equally well.It received a standing ovation from the small yet enthusiastic audience."
    The Hindu ,14th September 2007

    "To call Chilsag Chillies’s latest play A Wake-Up Call an experiment is an understatement. On entering Sri Ram Centre on September 7, for a moment it felt as if one had accidentally landed on the streets of Janpath.Director Sachin Gupta and his cast of 40 actors had put on such a convincing act that a few in the audience even started bargaining with the sellers.
    Indian Express, 12th September 2007

    "Chilsag Chillies, which staged Kailashnath Weds Madhumathi, is new to the Capital’s theatre circuit but is already in great demand in corporate circles."
    Indian Express ,17th August 2007

    ”For Sachin Gupta, however, theatre is not merely a hobby but a life in itself. In his own words, theatre is his second girlfriend.”
    The Hindu 5th May 2006

    "Youth was the theme of the night. The audience appreciated the humor of the first three plays and responded to the social message of the last. The audience actually rose to their feet, when the student actors said, "Agar kisi ko lagta hai ki kuch galat hua hai to hamare saath chaliye." The acting in the plays was of a high standard."
    The HINDU, 11th August 2006

    “Theatre Pasta is a theatre magazine with an international flavor”
    Indian Express, June 2006

    “A nostalgic evening brought to life purani yaadein of dear old college days-thanks to power packed performance by Chilsag Chillies. It was an evening full of laughter and tears and offered a roller coaster ride of emotions. Loud cheers and applause greeted the artists throughout the performance.”
    The Times of India, 5th August 2005

    “Director Sachin gupta’s plays brought a smile to the audience in New Delhi. His theatre amuses you, provokes, disturbs and awakens your conscience to fight collectively against inhuman acts like ragging. Austerity of presentation is another highlight of his theatre. All these elements invest his theatre with contemporary appeal.”
    The Hindu, 5th August 2005

    “At last someone has taken the initiative to get theatre out of its cynical, drab and conventional presentation in print. It took Sachin Gupta to start a monthly theatre magazine, the first of its kind in the country. Theatre pasta, is named so because it carries all possible elements and variety in reading on theatre, it deals not only with the drama intricacies but also some neglected areas.
    The pioneer, 9th June 2005
