Film: ZANJEER(1973) Directed by: Prakash Mehra Duration: 147 minutes


ABOUT THE FILM: Zanjeer (transl. Shackles) is a 1973 Indian Hindi action thriller film written by Salim–Javed, directed and produced by Prakash Mehra, and starring Amitabh Bachchan, Jaya Bachchan, Pran, Ajit Khan and Bindu. The film started a new wave in Bollywood. At a time when India was suffering from corruption and low economic growth, and the common man was left with frustration and anger over the system, Zanjeer began shifting Hindi cinema in a violent and aggressive direction. Reflecting the anger of the masses, Bachchan was seen as the new hero, who had the courage to fight against the wrongs while maintaining moral values at the same time. This film also ended the struggling period for Bachchan and turned him into a rising star. The film was a blockbuster success, domestically in India and overseas in the Soviet Union.


It was the first of many collaborations between the screenwriter duo Salim–Javed and Bachchan. Ever since Zanjeer, Salim–Javed wrote many of their subsequent scripts with Bachchan in mind for the lead role, and insisted on him being cast for their later films, including blockbusters such as Deewaar (1975) and Sholay (1975), establishing Bachchan as a superstar. In addition to being a turning point for Bachchan's career and Hindi cinema, Zanjeer was also a turning point for South Indian cinema, with Bachchan's acting inspiring future Tamil Superstar Rajinikanth. Zanjeer remains an important film in the history of Indian cinema and is regarded as a classic today. Dilip Kumar, Dev Anand, Raaj Kumar, and Dharmendra were offered the lead role, but they somehow did not accept the role.

Remembering Daagh Dehlvi
Sun May 29, 7:00 PM
Lamakaan & Danish Majid
اردو ہے جس کا نام ہمیں جانتے ہے داغ

ہندوستان میں دھوم ہماری زباں کی ہے



Urdu hai jis ka naam humeen jaante hai Daagh

Hindustan mein dhoom humari zabaan ki hai



Although born in Delhi, Nawab Mirza Khan — better known by his pen-name Daagh Dehlvi — flourished as a poet in Hyderabad. Patronized by the sixth Nizam, Mir Mehboob Ali Khan, he made a name for himself down south. His mother Wazir Khanum, who was quite the rebel for the times she lived in, finally had her story told in Shamsur Rahman Faruqi’s Kai Chaand The Sar-e-Aasmaan. While not as feted as Mirza Ghalib or Mir Taqi Mir, the simplicity and wit of Daagh’s poetry endears him to many Urdu novices as well as seasoned enthusiasts/scholars/litterateurs till this day.



That too, through musical renditions of Mohammed Rafi, Noor Jahan, and Farida Khanum. In more contemporary times, Kavita Seth’s versions of Daagh’s ghazals in “A Suitable Boy” have also become popular.



Just a few days after his 191st birthday, join us at LaMakaan for a talk on Daagh Dehlvi on Sunday, May 29. Maulana Azad National Urdu University’s former Urdu Department Head and authority on poetry from the Deccan, Naseemuddin Farees, will speak about Daagh’s early life, repertoire, and his very eventful time in Hyderabad.



After the discussion, mazahiya poet Shahid Adeeli and sanjeeda poet Dr. Farooq Shakeel — two Hyderabad-based Urdu poets will be performing. Their lineage of poetry teaches goes back all the way to greats like Daagh, Mir, and Zauq.





Naseemuddin Farees — Naseemuddin Farees is a former Professor of Urdu at the Maulana Azad National Urdu University. He served as the Head of the Haroon Khan Shervani Centre for Deccan Studies and he also was the head of the Urdu department at MANUU. Farees is an authority on poetry and literature from the Deccan.



Shahid Adeeli — Shahid Adeeli is a humour poet and also the son of Nazeer Ali Adeel. Adeel was taught by Safi Aurangabadi whose lineage of teachers has links to Dabistans of Delhi, Lucknow, and Hyderabad. A recipient of the Telangana State Government’s Lifetime Achievement Award, he has performed in many mushairas in India and abroad.



He has had two his poetry collections, “Aaain Baain Shaayin” and “Wah Wah,” published.



Dr. Farooq Shakeel — Farooq Shakeel is also the son of Nazeer Ali Adeel. A mainstay at many mushairas, he has published many works such as Safar Sanson Ka, Tanqeedat, Mhaavarat-e-Adeel, Mhavaraat-e-Adeel, Mhavaraat-e-Safi Ka Taqbali Mutala and Shaake-e-Sambar. Shakeel has received two Lifetime Achievement Awards from the TS/AP Urdu Academies.

Park
Sun Jun 5, 8:00 PM
Chitralekha Arts Theatre Group
A comedy play about three men in a park fighting for their place; there are three benches but not enough. The play touches upon that thing which is at a premium these days – space – literally and metaphorically. What starts off as light-hearted banter evolves into a serious conflict about space, territory and ownership. These become the main issues.


Park can be many things; it can be a metaphor for home, or a metaphor for love, or even your workplace. It deals with a problem of space, which is universal.

Ek Durachari Raja
Sat Jun 11, 8:00 PM
SHUDRKA HYDERABAD
The play, directed by Swapan Mondal, is about a king who, stricken by the sudden death of his beloved sister, Apurupa, ponders over the futility of existence. His meditations on the eternal mystery lead him to consider his position of limitless powers. He is the monarch of the world, but, deranged by sorrow, he strives to control the universe, to make impossibilities come true. He yearns to possess the moon, to blend the sky and the sea and discover the secrets of the dead. His experiments are those of an insane sadist. He orders executions and torture without reason, to defy logic and sense.

The play remains universally relevant. It represents the face of contemporary despotism, not only in terms of the whimsical madness of rulers, but also in terms of how people react to such rule with a glimmer of hope for the future.
