Kaifinama | B&W and Colour | 90 minutes
looks at the life and art of the Urdu Progressive poet Kaifi Azmi.
Kaifi Azmi was both a poet for social change as well as one of the
foremost lyricists in the Hindi film industry. Not content to limit
himself to fine writing, he worked ceaselessly throughout his life as a
catalyst for change among the disenfranchised.

The film looks at
his small-town roots, his commitment to socialism, his wideranging body
of work and the enormous changes he brought to the life of the village
where he was born.

This extraordinary journey is documented
through extensive interviews with him and his wife Shaukat Kaifi as well
as insights from his children - Shabana and Baba Azmi - and
reminiscences by his friends and colleagues.

Kaifinama thus is both the definitive film biography of Kaifi Azmi and a history of the times he illuminated with his genius.
