About Play MAREEZ

The play is a deep serious exploration of the poetic impulse based on the life of MAREEZ: poet, writer of beautiful ghazals, lover of alcohol; a man who courts any muse visible to him; a man reduced to selling his poetry to businessmen who pass it off as their own- MAREEZ is a fantasia on the theme of poetic improvisation.

Based on Raish Maniaar's book- "Mareez": Astitva ane Vyaktitva, Mareez is unique in Gujarati Literature. In the artificial split between high culture and pop culture, Mareez makes his appearance like a colossus. As all creative geniuses do, Mareez completely redefined the ground rules of shayri, a genre made famous by Urdu ghazalkars.

Manoj Shah's production brings alive the life and times of this underrated poet with a palpable energy. Gulam Mohammed Sheikh's backdrop is sublimely beautiful, providing the perfect setting to a biographical play interspersed with the poetry of life.
