Mumbai: From making offbeat parallel movies to now being an advocate of the new wave cinema, Saeed Mirza spoke to the young aspirants of K.C College on his multiple milestones of being a film maker, writer, passionate traveller and now an educator.
A strong believer in dialogues over monologues with young people, Mirza announced his next endeavour to teach the shepherd children of the Himalayas. Often being referred to as the Leftist Sufi , he admitted, “I never make the same mistakes again, I prefer making new ones. However, the tragedy today is that we do not allow young people to make mistakes,” he told students.
Admitting to have chosen unique titles for his films such as ‘Albert Pinto ko gussa kyon aata hai’ ‘Arvind Desai ki ajeeb dastaan’, ‘Mohan Joshi hazir ho’, he explained that this would give the audience an idea about the movie before they enter the theatre.
When asked by one of the students about his inspiration behind his first novel, ‘Ammi- A letter to a democratic mother,’ Mirza responded, “I was trying to understand what a novel was. I tried mixing essays, love stories, poems and plays”. Additionally, he told the audience about his upcoming novel “Memory in the age of amnesia.”
Preferring gullies over highways, Murza has made his 15 years of travelling full of zeal and enthusiasm. Moreover, he values the momentary friendship made and the time spent with the common man.
Recalling his interaction with a journalist on how he would like to be remembered, he answered: ‘ I would like to be forgotten.’ Being inspired by Mahavir’s preaching he said,” You are a material, and all material has to die. There has to be a finality to it,” he added.
