Majrooh Sultanpuri

 

Majrooh Sultanpuri [1st Oct.1919-24th May 2000]
A Sultan of Words & Phrases (25th Dadasaheb Phalke Award Recipient – 1993)

Born as Asrar Hasan Khan, on 1st October,1919 at Sultanpur,U.P. he received his early education in Urdu, Persian and Arabic.

Young Asrar was trained at an Unani College in Lucknow to become a Hakim and he even practiced as an Unani practioner for a year. Little was know that this young man was destined to create not just ripples but storm in the Urdu Literary world with his phenomenal versatility in poetry and film song writing as Majrooh Sultanpuri.As the first poet to be honoured with the 25th Dadasaheb Phalke Award in 1994 for the year 1993, Majrooh Sultanpuri was the right candidate for the award.Young Hakim Asrar's interest in Urdu poetry rose and he started to pursue it leaving behind the lucrative and much settled profession of being a medicine man. It was this quest for poetry that brought him into the limelight.

In association with progressive poets like Jigar Moradabadi, Moin Hasan Jazbi and Faiz Ahmed, he polished his pen and furnished it with biting edge of protest and national flavour. It was during this period, when he had joined the band of nationalist poets that he was arrested and imprisoned. It was after his released that he took to the pen name of Majrooh and his pen poured love and the bitter sweet pain of love.

Majrooh Sultanpuri had written more than 8000 songs for over 330 films (including 3 in Bhojpuri). In the 50 years span of his career as a lyricist, Majrooh was at ease with his songs and never did once his poetry ever tripped the thin line of decency.

He was at ease with an emotional song like Utha e ja unke sitam aur jiye ja, or a light masti number like Panch Rupaiya Baraa Aanaa, romantic song like Ai phoolon ki rani baharon ki malika tera muskurana gazab ho gaya or a cabaret number like piya tu ab to aa ja.

Credit should go to Majrooh for introducing the dialogue styled lyrics in Hindi films of the 60's like Haal kaisa hai janab ka? Kya khayal hai aap ka? , from the film Chalti Ka Naam Gadi. Songs of the kind have stood the test of time and are still popular even today. Poets and film lyricists take refuge to this style of songs even today to get the situation lively, but the line of decency that was drawn by Majrooh has somehow disappeared.
