By the time Gulzar made Ijaazat (1987), action-packed potboilers had replaced the genteel romanticism of yore, leaving few takers for a film about lost love and a broken marriage. And yet, three decades later, Ijaazat is a film that has endured. Gulzar s interpretation of a love triangle in Ijaazat - an evocative exploration of the strength and fragility of human relationships - was years ahead of its time. This book examines that interpretation to show how, thematically, the film was possibly Gulzar s most daring. It highlights how his skill as a storyteller - at once romantic and realistic - is exemplified by his complex characters. Contributing to that understanding is how the film s power also derived hugely from its sublime musical score by R.D. Burman. Drawing on Gulzar s recollections of the making of the film, Mira Hashmi s book embraces the memory of the love that for the poet wasn t always the answer, but a part of the question.
