Late Kalpana Lazmi

Director Kalpana Lazmi expired at 64 on Sunday, September 23, 2018. Kalpanaji was not only a director but also a producer and a screenwriter. Her genre was realistic, low-budget indie movies categorized as parallel cinema. Her movies were mostly woman-centric. She was also associated for a long time with movie-maker Dr. Bhupen Hazarika. I met her for an interview around the time she was promoting her movie Daman (2001). Last year, Kalpanaji was diagnosed with kidney cancer. The same TV channels, which threw muck on Sridevi post her death, did not bother to talk much about Kalpanaji’s life and work after her death.
