Kaifi Aur Main is a celebration of renowned Urdu poet and film lyricist Kaifi Azmi’s life and works, seen through the eyes of his wife – noted theatre and film actress, Shaukat Kaifi. It has been brought to life by his daughter Shabana Azmi and son-in-lawJaved Akhtar. Kaifi Aur Main is a theatrical collage, based on the reminiscences of Kaifi and Shaukat. Scripted by Javed Akhtar, the narrative traces Kaifi and Shaukat’s journey. It follows everything from his childhood in Mijwan, their unusual romance culminating in a marriage that lasted 55 years, life in Bombay in the ’50s, the Progressive Writers’ Movement, Kaifi’s social and cultural activism, his path-breaking work as a lyricist in Hindi cinema, his fight against life-threatening illness and their relentless fight to make Mijwan a place of progress. It is also a celebration of Kaifi Azmi’s poetry and his unparalleled contribution to Indian Cinema.
Kaifi Azmi’s recollections are brought to life by Javed Akhtar and are interwoven by Shabana Azmi, along with the memories of her mother Shaukat Kaifi, whose impressions make the narrative a heart-warming account that rises above the personal to document the politics of an era in a distinctly female voice.
