Majajan inspired by Bulleh Shah's Ishq
by GHULAM HUSSAIN

Majajan is a love story Syed Noor says he "made most passionately". Inspired by the life of Baba Bulleh Shah and his 'ishq' with his 'murshad', the film is in its post-production and will be released on Eidul Fitr.
Talking to The Nation Plus, the director of Majajan, showman Syed Noor said that he was a very romantic person. "Hence, the film.
"When I read the verses of Baba Bulleh Shah I promised myself that I will make a film on the great sufi poet's 'ishq' and I was looking for an opportunity to do that. So, I discussed the story with my wife (Rukhsana Noor) who is also a writer. She converted it into a full-fledged script and finally I created Majajan."
"She (Saima) didn't compromise on quality, and spent lavishly on making Majajan a masterpiece," he said.
Love knows no caste or creed, and it fights all obstacles and hindrances that come in its way. This is what Majajan is about. A Syedzada (played by Shan) falls in love with a poor village belle (Saima) who sings songs in the various village occasions. The lady knows that she belongs to a lower class and is no match for the Syedzada.
The Syedzada, on the other hand, adores Baba Bulleh Shah and performs dhamal on his verses, wearing ankles around his feet.
Noor said that Shan was playing such a character for the very first time on screen. The film revolves completely around Shan and Saima, and both the artistes are said to have given their best performance to date.
"Shan will prove with this film that he is not just good for the usual Punjabi film roles, but also for more subtle characters."
Noor added that the album of Majajan had ten songs in all, but only five had been added in the film. Zulfikar Ali has composed the music of the film, while Aqeel Rubby, Rukhsana Noor, Khursheed Kamal and Khawaja Pervez have written the lyrics.
Noor said that the songs in the film were all situational. He hoped that they would be enjoyed by the audience.
"I'm sure my songs will remind the audience of films like Pattan, Mukhrra, Naji, Ishq-e-Laila, Yakkey Wali and Kartar Singh."
Noor also said that Majajan was a pure Pakistani film because it had been shot entirely in Pakistan. Though the processing work has been done in Bangkok because this is a DTS film.
"I have hired no Indian singer, composer, choreographer, lyricist, cinematographer or actor," Noor said gushingly.
"Majajan is also a pure family entertainment. I am sure our ladies and families will like it immensely."
It may be mentioned here that Majajan also marks the comeback of Madiha Shah, a talented actress of the 90s. She plays Shan's wife.
Noor was all praise for Madeeha, "It is very unfortunate that the film industry forsake such a good artiste (as Madeeha Shah). There is a whole treasure of talent in her. I am sure if I had cast another actress she would not have delivered as well as Madeeha did."
The film also stars Saud, Shafqat Cheema, Rashid Mehmood, Adeeb, Shabnam Chaudhry, Iftikhar Thakur, Sardar Kamal, Raseela and Kajal.

well chriz it would b very ridiculous to make an urdu film on a punjabi sofi poet while u r including his kalam in it as well.the punjabi sofi poets r treasure 4 all of us not only 4 punjab.yhe film songs r really depict our culture.although saima anti is in it but i still love the song coz mayb i can understand it.the song ja we kachya karya is beautifully written n picturised as well.cheti bori we tabeba is amazing song.its composition is excellent.shan's dhamal is good.i hope it will b a good film coz it has a depth.what is looking from the songs do far.

well i have no prob with punjabi language i too can understand panjabi as well but it can be a double version film i mean in the past there are quite a few movies which were dubbed in both punjabi and urdu it only can create the opportunity for the movie to be a nation wide success i mean look every where either its bollywood or hollywood they make double version films and if iam not mistaken the babra sharif and ghulam mohyuddin starrer MERA NAAM HAI MOHABBAT was released in china and were dubbed in chinease language and was a huge success there.

syed noor has gone mad a punjabi film n saima anti starrer whose gonna watch in uk ppl those who rejected ktsk jesi briallent film
Posted 29 Nov 2005

MR NICE says
Golimaro2 this is not true because the majority of the Pakistanis living in the UK are from the Punjab and there is also a big Sikh community here. Alot of them want to see Punjabi films.

Choorian did great business here and Mehndi Walay Haath even with a limited release went house fall.

Just recently Jimmy Shergill's "Yaaran Nal Bharan" did a business of nearly £50,000 which in fact was nearly double then the business of KTSK.

There is a market for Punjabi films in the UK along as the product is good.

I saw some song clips of the film yesterday on Prime TV. I was impressed by what I saw. Credit goes to Syed Noor the phtography, song picturisation and the print quality were great.

Believe it or not but Saima was looking stunning in some of the scenes.

I don't think they showed that song but I may be wrong. I was just blown away how Saima looked and the visuals were really nice.
