Yeh Gul(zar)istan Hamara - Films of Gulzar

Sampooran Singh Karla, popularly known as Gulzar, has been active for 50 years in the film industry. At age 73, after winning an Oscar in 2009 he seems to be going from strength to strength and hardly shows any signs of slowing down.

Originally a car mechanic, Karla always wanted to be a writer. He took the penname of Gulzar Deenvi and started writing. His first opportunity to write for films came in 1960.

He entered into the movies as an assistant director and song writer for the film “Shreeman Satyawadi”. After that ambitious start, he has been involved in writing dialogues, lyrics, stories, screenplays, producing, and directing movies for all these years.

During his brilliant career he garnered several awards. Aside for the Oscar for “Slumdog Millionaire” for the song “Jai Ho”, he also won a Grammy for the same song. He won the best lyricist Filmfare award a record 11 times. He also won the Filmfare award as the best dialogue writer four times, best story once, and best director once. He won seven National film awards in various categories. He is a recipient of Sahitya Akademi Award and the Padma Bhushan.

During his illustrious career Gulzar collaborated with various artistes, including Asha Bhosle, Bhupinder Singh, Ghulam Ali, Jagjit Singh, and R.D. Burman, and came out with several private albums. He invented a new technique of writing poetry called “Triveni” that contains each stanza as rhyming three lines. The album with Jagjit Singh, “Koi Baat Chale”, was written completely using this technique.

He also made his presence felt on TV by making a series on the life of “Ghalib”. He wrote songs for many children movies for TV. He directed 21 movies and was involved in some capacity or other in over 140 movies. In the next few weeks, I would like to share songs from the films he was associated with.

For showing continued brilliance for 50 or so years one cannot help but be in just awe of his unending creative juices. All one can say about him and his magnificently illustrious career, borrowing from his now world famous song, “Jai Ho!” …

Shriman Satyawadi (1960)

This is the movie in which Gulzar made his debut as an assistant director as well as lyricist. Interestingly, Shashi Kapoor was also an assistant director of this movie.

Dattaram, a long time assistant to Shankar & Jaikishan, does a marvelous job here. Lata, who was a favorite of Shankar & Jaikishan through 60's is notably absent in this album. Suman Kalyanpur sings all female songs. She does so very beautifully. Almost all songs in this album are melodious to listen to. Here they are ...

I am not sure, but the lyricist of Rang Rangeeli Botal was probably Gulshan Bawra.

You're right Dhallji. However, I did mention it as part of my filmography. Gulzarji indeed wrote dialogues for the movie.

Cheers,

Thank you for the encouragement, Mahesh. The three movies you mentioned here were missing from the filmographies I researched but I will add them. No problem. I find most of the time these filmographies are incomplete and sometimes even incorrect.

Cheers,

Swarapriya, thanks for starting this thread on Gulzarji who has made immense contributions in so many different capacities. But what fascinates me most is his poetry. I look forward to many songs penned by him.
