Screening Schedule
Mirza Ghalib
Sohrab Modi, 1954, India; 145m

Renowned Urdu poet Mirza Ghalib is the last blazing light of a fading empire in this love-torn biopic feauring ghazals sung by actress-singer Suraiya. Directed by the legendary Sohrab Modi—a key figure in establishing the Bombay film industry—the story finds the grand civilization of the Mughals reduced to their courtly culture, as their vaunted justice holds no sway in the era of colonialism. Split between his love for his wife and his love for a singer, Galib’s struggle for fulfillment only ceases with an extraordinary act of faith. Featuring Ghulam Mohamed’s melodious music and Shakeel Badaiyuni’s poetic lyrics.
