Happy Birthday Sampooran Singh Gulzar

Its Gulzar’s birthday and here are the songs to celebrate . After the (dare I say ) more talented More talented Sahir Ludhiyanvi, Gulzaar ‘s Lyrics have had the most influence on my Hindi music listening life. Although Gulzaar still writes poetry, Hindi films have lost the essence of what made Gulzaar’s poetsy and lyric special: the personal appeal that left you feeling that one, poor lyricist/poet was talking through one poor heroine to you, personally.

But Innocence, is by definition, lost.

HB Sampooran!

Naam Gum Jaayega

Dil Se re

Naam Ada Likhna

Jhoote  Nain Bole

Tere Bina Zindagi se

Beeti Naa Bityi raina

Aa Jiya Laage naa.

    I dont agree innocence is lost. I still find the same joy in Gulzars lyrics especially when he writes for Vishal Bharadwaj. Their combination is just wonderful. Love the songs of Kaminey especially Tere Liye. What beautiful poetry!!!

      Although there have been some good collaborations, the vishal-gulzar partnership is truely the decline of the creative gulzar.
