A great film
10 January 1999 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Ijaazat has a very real and wonderful story with absolutely excellent performances by Rekha and Naseeruddin Shah, and superb direction by Gulzar. This film is highly recommended. One wonders where such talent lies today, films like this keep one living in the glorious past of Indian cinema.
