Gulzar’s remarkable commitment to silver screen initiated in the year 1963 as a lyricist in Bimal Roy’s Bandini. He didn’t think back and worked with each conceivable name in the music business. In a profession that ranges more than five decades, Gulzar continued reevaluating himself, drawing esteem even from the current era. There can’t be a superior approach to respect an artist than to celebrate his artistry
On the maestro’s 83rd birthday, the channel Zee Classic with its image suggestion Woh Zamaana Kare Deewana, declares the dramatic arrival of Libaas directed by Gulzar.
Libaas that underlines Gulzar’s supreme thought on human connections never observed the light of the day over the most recent three decades. The unreleased movie which has been grieving in the chronicles of the Directorate of Film Festivals hasn’t matured at all to the extent the class in its idea and execution is concerned. Also, it is good to go to hit the extra large screen this year!
The film brags a stellar cast including Shabana Azmi, Naseeruddin Shah, Raj Babbar, Sushma Seth, Utpal Dutt, Annu Kapoor and Savita Bajaj among others. Another feature of the film is its music by the melodic virtuoso R D Burman.
Libaas depends on Gulzar’s short story Seema from the Raavi Paar accumulation. The story rotates around theater chief Sudhir (played by Naseeruddin Shah) and his on-screen character spouse Seema (depicted by Shabana Azmi). All is by all accounts the photo of an immaculate wedded life, however appearances are regularly tricky in this universe of the entertainment biz.
The film was created by the late Vikas Mohan and now one of his last unfulfilled dreams will see the light of day as his children Amul Vikas Mohan and Anshul Vikas Mohan connect with the Zee family
