Gulzar – the soul of Music and Movies

 
Gulzar – the soul of Music and Movies

Sampooran Singh Kalra, known popularly by his pen name Gulzar, is an eminent poet, lyricist and film director. He has a special way of touching the soul - through his simple tales of love, of relationships in unique situations; he was a master at looking through a child's eye.


Sampooran Singh Kalra’s Midas touch can make any song rise above the ordinary. His latest Dum ghut-ta hai in ‘Drishyam’ creates a mood that grips you. Sometimes, it’s hard to believe the same person has written Main aa riya hoon ki jaa riya hoon in ‘Dedh Ishqiya’, but then that’s Gulzar. Finding the extent of his range is like trying to find a matchstick in the stack of hay. Once in an interview about his book Pluto he said, “You're expressing your opinion, I am expressing mine. If you don't like Pluto, call this something else and then read. We may differ, no?" that is what he does; he will convey his point without misplacing any words. His lyrics make you imagine the situation.


He is not subtle in his interactions, but his songs tell an entirely different story. Who would have thought of these lines?


Chaand se hokar sadak jaati hai

Usi sadak pe aage jaake apna makaan hoga.

Or,


Tujhse naraz nahi zindagi, heran hai

Pareshan hai


This is what you feel while writing about Gulzar: How to set the parameters to evaluate his work? Should it be personal or should it be independent of any personal beliefs?


Gulzar remains an enigma to many of his fans, and justifiably so. He is a genius very few can match up to. His poetry and song-writing is definitely inspirational and so are his films. He retired from filmmaking many years ago, and yet we wait for him to make a comeback someday soon. Perhaps we are ready. Perhaps, the audience has finally caught up!
