A streamline of consciousness, or the tyranny of an intellect, or the philosophy of mind and spirituality, poetry is an escape from the labyrinth of misery. There’s poetry in the infinity of universe, there’s poetry in the eternal love. Poetry teaches the insignificance of heights when fiddling thedoleful depths; the art of craving for more while skirting the periphery of satisfaction. To encourage and celebrate the excellence of Indian poets in the world of drama, the Lucknow Literature Festival 2017 is all set bring out the theme “Poetry in Cinema: Conscious, Unconscious & Transcendental” on 17th, 18th and 19th November, ’17.

Here is a preview of some of the events that’ll give us a chance to connect with the soul of poetry:

1. Poetry in Cinema:

Poetry In Cinema Poetry In Cinema

The film industry is well aware that poetics is the best form to depict various aspects in a movie. The filmmakers today often use poetry to describe metaphor, abstraction and non-linear narrative. The poets, however, choose poetry to deploy and develop images and stories but inarguably, both are influenced by classical poetry. The screenwriters are aspiring poets who have proved that poetry functions in a broader spectrum but even the new emerging forms have an undisputed reliance on the classical form of poetry.Mostly, poetry in cinema is used to advance a plot or lend some deeper significance to an event where the protagonist is faced with a dilemma, which can be a tricky thing.

2.Indian Comic Con

A poet, often under the moonlight, embarks on a lonely journey into the world of poetry, just to emblazon others’ ordinary world. It’s amazingly remarked, that a poet should be so crafty with words that he is envied even for his pains.The Youth Forum is a platform where the young, thoughtful minds will express their conceptions and reflections in the form of poetry and shayari, for a powerful play goes on when verses are contributed.

Shakespeare wala Love

Shakespeare wala Love Shakespeare wala Love

“Love looks not with the eyes, but with the mind,
And therefore is winged Cupid painted blind.”
What we often consider ‘True Love’ is actually self-gratification. We are born to love, we sacrifice our happiness in an instance for love, but what if our feelings are temporary and they fluctuate and change without any dependability? Vishal Bhardwaj and SurbhiModi will canvass what love is, learning to truly love and facing the challenges it involve, for the essence of love lies in the act of living for the ones we love.

A group of spectators not just hear but experience a creator’s emotions when the creator himself recites his work. It might not include extensive notes of musical choir, yet the voice of penman imbibes his words in an illustrious symphony. Such is the persona of the genius Piyush Mishra whose dialect and tone offers the experience of his verse to the audience. Accompanied with the ingenious dapper ZeeshanAyyub, the duo’s level of performance can never be matched.

6.“Aadha Sa Waada”: Irshaad Kamil and Imtiaz Ali

‘And I tried to write a song, as if I were a lyricist…’
When two geniuses, possessing doughty, impregnable, baroque skills coalesce together, the outcome is real, extraordinary and unaltered, one you can’t help but clap for.

7.Indian Feminism

Feminism is not just about equal rights for females, but fighting against ancient believes from scriptures and treating women as inferior. It’s about eliminating misogyny, overthrowing patriarchy, ending objectification of women. It’s about providing unbiased opportunities, rejecting social norms that enslave women to domesticity; it is being aware that lack of understanding in other’s perspectives will result in undesired conflicts and arguments. A discussion with ShabanaAzmi, Maj. Gen. VibhaDutta and some renowned women of our society will bring out the struggle for liberation of the way that power is structured through the construction of gender.
