REVIEW FOR KAIFI AUR MAIN - A HINDI PLAY BY JAVED AKHTAR
The letters and writings of Kaifi Azmi and his wife Shaukat Kaifi, are brought to life by Shabana Azmi and Javed Akhtar, through this emotive play at Shilpa Kala Vedika.
The musical directed by Javed Akhtar, also has him in the lead playing Kaifi, and Shabana playing Shaukat. The play is graciously sprinkled with Ghazals by the popular Jaswinder Singh.
Kaifi Azmi - the veteran lyricist, poet and writer - started his career writing ghazals, full of clichèd imagery and metaphors. That didn't last too long and he moved on to writing revolutionary and socially conscious poetry.
The play is a very personal rendition of the life and ideas of Kaifi and Shaukat, and is all set to grandstand the Hyderabadi crowd. Be prepared for the treat of a lifetime.
