While living the later years of his life, a lonely character suddenly meets a person (in a railway station’s waiting room), who was once the most important one in his life but had parted and gone onto living her own path, in her own way. What happens when two such persons meet, how they remember each personal moment they had lived and how they see the reasons of their separation once again with a new perspective. This is the subject of “Ijaazat”, a very intense, emotional and loving movie from “Gulzar”. The plot gets more enjoyable with two great artists Naseeruddin Shah and Rekha. Anuradha Patel completing the triangle also gives a memorable perfromance of her short career. And another main merit of movie is its music by R. D. Burman. In fact he has done a great job in putting the unconventional lyrics into beautiful compositions. And the songs blend into the scenes and narration beautifully. There are moments of silence in the movie which have a language of their own, and there are some well written one liner dialogue scenes, which are a treat to watch. Another not to be missed gem from the master film-maker, Gulzar. You are sure going to find this movie and its soundtrack both in the collection of almost every fan of bollywood movies.
