Majrooh Sultanpuri: Memories on His 16th Anniversary --Siraj Syed

Majrooh Sultanpuri: Memories on His 16th Anniversary --Siraj Syed

We are reminded almost every time we switch on the radio or watch a Hindi film that there used to be a great shair/geetkaar by name of Majrooh Sultanpuri. Very few songs these days come anywhere near the poetic wizardry he weaved into every word of every song. 


Our Consulting Editor, Siraj Syed, paid him a tribute when he was conferred the DadaSaheb Phalke award, in 1994. The tribute appeared in the Deccan Herald. It is being reproduced here in good faith, on the occasion of Majrooh Saahab’s anniversary, being observed this week.
Majrooh lived for a good seven years after being conferred the Phalke award, breathing his last in 2001. He was the last of the film giants to leave us, along with Anand Bakshi (Bakhshi outlived only by a few months), an august list that included Arzoo Lucknowi, D.N. Madhok, Rajinder Krishan, Shakeel Badayuni, Jan Nisar Akhtar, Sahir Ludhinavi, Kaifi Azmi, Hasrat Jaipuri, Shailendra, Anand Bakhshi, Indeevar, and more.

 
Majrooh’s greatest filmy ghazal
There have been many of his works vying for pride of place, as Majrooh’s most famous ghazal in films, but many critics have settled for one which featured in a small, but nationally acclaimed film, Dastak, released 46 years ago. It was made by another literary giant, Rajinder Singh Bedi. Madan Mohan was the music director, Lata Mangeshkar sang it and this lyric was picturised on Rehana Sultan.

The spelling is phonetic, as codified by the website, Rekhta. (We are thankful to Rekhta, for allowing us to use this transcription).
