S3 Episode 9: Gulzar's Ijaazat (1987) - with Pavan Jha
Gulzar's poetically cinematic Ijaazat (1987) is perhaps Hindi cinema's most mature exploration of divorce and live-in relationships. It's also a film whose dialogue is almost as lyrical as its songs.
Featuring a memorable feature-length waltz between two fine actors, Rekha and Naseeruddin Shah, and a terrific soundtrack by Pancham, Ijaazat is a film that truly showcases Gulzar's poetic sensibilities. A film worth celebrating, time and again.
We are joined by Pavan Jha, a technology consultant, an avid film buff, archivist and film historian, as we celebrate this lovely film. He shared numerous interesting insights into the film, touching on the film's characters, songs, dialogue and legacy, adding great context along the way.
