Ismat Apa Ke Naam is a series of three short stories by the famous Urdu writer Ismat Khanum Chughtai (1915-1991) Mughal Bacche, Chhui Muee and  Gharwali narrated with élan and gusto by the trio Naseeruddin Shah, Ratna Pathak and Heeba Shah.  The beauty of the entire experience lies not just in the manner in which the stories are narrated by the actors but the sheer luminosity, irony and poignancy of the stories themselves. Ismat Apa ke Naam is a celebration of a writer whose work is never dated, a reminder of the still unexplored dramatic possibilities of Indian fiction, and yet another chance to witness the work of an actor-director who keeps seeking ways to reinvent the magic of theatre.
