Early life[edit] Gulzar
Gulzar
was born in a Kalra Sikh
Sikh
family, to Makhan Singh Kalra and Sujan Kaur, in Dina, Jhelum District, British India
British India
(now in Pakistan). In school, he had read translations of the works of Tagore
Tagore
which he recounted as one of his life's many turning points. Due to the partition, his family split and he had to stop his studies and come to Mumbai
Mumbai
(then called Bombay) to support his family. Sampooran took up many small jobs in Mumbai
Mumbai
to eke out a living, including one of in a garage at Vichare motors on Bellasis road (Mumbai).[5] There he used to touch up accident-damaged cars by mixing shades of paint, in his own words "I had a knack for colors". His father rebuked him for being a writer initially. He took the pen name Gulzar
Gulzar
Deenvi and later simply Gulzar.[6] In an interview with Rajyasabha TV, he recounted enjoying his work as a painter as it allowed him a lot of time to simultaneously read, write, attend college and be involved with the PWA (Progressive writers association).[1][7][8] Career[edit] Lyricist[edit] It was during his interactions in the PWA Sunday meetings that Shailendra and Bimal Roy encouraged him to join films. Gulzar
Gulzar
began his career under film directors Bimal Roy and Hrishikesh Mukherjee. His book Ravi Paar has a narrative of Bimal Roy and the agony of creation. He started his career as a songwriter with the music director Sachin Dev Burman
Sachin Dev Burman
for the movie Bandini (1963). In films, he found an environment associated with literature in the group he worked with, including Bimal Roy, most of whose films were based on literary works.[9] Shailendra, who has penned the rest of the songs in the movie requested Gulzar
Gulzar
to write the song "Mora Gora Ang Layle", sung by Lata Mangeshkar.[3][4][10] Directed and produced by Hrishikesh Mukherjee, the 1968 film Aashirwad had dialogues and lyrics written by Gulzar. Song lyrics and poems written by Gulzar
Gulzar
gave the poetic attribute and the "much-needed additional dimension"[11] to Ashok Kumar's role in the film. Ashok Kumar received the Best Actor at the Filmfare and at the National Film Awards for this role.[11] Gulzar's lyrics, however, did not gain much attention until 1969's Khamoshi, where his song "Humne Dekhi Hai Un Aankhon Ki Mehekti Khushboo" (lit., "I have seen the fragrance of those eyes") became popular. Ganesh Anantharaman in his book Bollywood Melodies describes Gulzar's lyrics, with the purposeful mixing of the senses, to be "daringly defiant".[12][a][13] For the 1971 film Guddi, he penned two songs, of which "Humko Man Ki Shakti Dena" was a prayer which is still sung in many schools in India.[14] As a lyricist, Gulzar
Gulzar
had a close association with the music director Rahul Dev Burman. He has also worked with Sachin Dev Burman, Shankar Jaikishan, Hemant Kumar, Laxmikant-Pyarelal, Madan Mohan, Rajesh Roshan, and Anu Malik.[3][4][10][15] Gulzar

Hindi
film Guru, which had music composed by A. R. Rahman.[16] Another Ratnam-Rahman hit, "Chaiyya Chaiyya" from Dil Se..

Direction[edit] After writing dialogues and screenplay for films such as Aashirwad, Anand and Khamoshi, Gulzar
Gulzar
directed his first film Mere Apne
Mere Apne
(1971). The film was a remake of Tapan Sinha's Bengali film Apanjan (1969).[10][20] He then directed Parichay and Koshish. Parichay was based on a Bengali novel, Rangeen Uttarain by Raj Kumar Maitra.[21] He wrote the story of Koshish
Koshish
based on the struggle faced by a deaf-dumb couple.[22] In 1973, he directed Achanak, inspired by the 1958 murder case KM Nanavati v State of Maharashtra.[10][23] Later he directed Aandhi, based on the Hindi
Hindi
novel "Kaali Aandhi" by Kamleshwar.[10][21][24] His next film Khushboo was based on Sharat Chandra Chattopadhyay's Pandit Mashay. His Mausam, which won the National Award for 2nd Best Feature Film,[25] Filmfare Best Movie and Filmfare Best Director awards, along with other six Filmfare nominations, was loosely based on the story "Weather", from the novel, The Judas Tree, by A.J.

Due to its objectionable subject, the film never got released in India.[26] Mausam pictured a story of a father who tries to improve the life of his prostitute-daughter.
