Watched “Mi Ghalib” today – despite all its flaws, poor Urdu pronunciation and few redundant scenes, the overall effect is quite palatable. I especially liked that it tries to dig deeper into one of the most dominant instincts/motivations of living beings – to perpetuate beyond existence. That quest for fame and intricate struggle with ego. Some really intriguing questions and thankfully they don’t try to offer over simplified answers to essentially complex, existential questions.
And yes, music is really awesome. Though one may question if it is appropriate to use ‘Qawwali’ instead of ‘Ghazal’. But it does give that powerful musical soul to the play.
I really hope the team takes more efforts on the play, improve inconsistent & faulty Urdu pronunciation and discard few irrelevant scenes and punchlines that are totally uncalled for.
