Gulzar: The Songwriters

Gulzar: The Songwriters

Gulzar's romantic realism has enhanced many Bollywood films since 1963. Suresh Wadkar, Lata Mangeshkar and other playback virtuosos have made Gulzar lines like "I have seen the scented fragrance of those eyes" (from Sadma's "Aye Zindagi Gale Lagaa Le") and "Oh life! Embrace me, accept me" (from Khamoshi's "Hamne Deki Hai") part of South Asia's cultural DNA.
