Three Classic Films by Gulzar: Insights into the Films
This box set contains three individual books each of which provides insights into the making of three of Gulzar’s films: Aandhi, Angoor and Ijaazat. While for Aandhi, author Saba M. Bashir does a close textual analysis of the film, examining in detail its stellar cast, the language and dialogues, and the evergreen songs, for Angoor, Sathya Saran traces the evolution of a comic tale which was an adaptation of Shakespeare’s Comedy of Errors. In the third, Mira Hashmi highlights how Gulzar’s skill as a storyteller is exemplified by his complex characters in Ijaazat. All three draw on Gulzar’s own memories of making these films.
