The epic love story- Laila Majnu First time on Zee Classic

Mumbai: The mystic poet and
philosopher Rumi describes eternal
love as ‘lovers don’t finally meet
somewhere. They’re in each other all
along.’ The quote exemplifies H.S.
Rawail’s immortal love story ‘Laila
Majnu’ in every sense. Adhering to its
core proposition ‘Woh Zamaana Kare
Deewana’, Zee Classic is staging the
set for the epic romantic saga on
Friday, 3rd July at 9 PM. The film that
will be aired for the first time on the
channel stars Rishi Kapoor as the
jilted lover Qais (AKA Majnu) along
with Ranjeeta Kaur as the love of his
life Laila.
One of the interesting and lesser
known fact associated with the film is
around its enthralling music.
Legendary composer Madan Mohan
passed away before completing the
film’s score and the loss was the
biggest blow to the production unit.
As the music required certain quality
of Sufism, finding his replacement to
work on the existing tracks turned
out to be a daunting task. It was
later, National Award winning music
composer, Jaidev (known for films like
Hum Dono, Reshma aur Shera etc.)
filled his shoes and delivered a
fantastic musical score.
Based on a true story, this super-hit
romantic film recounts the story of
Laila (Ranjeeta Kaur) and Qais (Rishi
Kapoor) sharing unspoken bond. Born
to the rival clans they loved each
other unconditionally. Appalled with
the thought of them coming together,
both clans decide to separate them at
a young age. Years later, during an
annual trade Qais enters Laila’s
town, accidently meeting her and
irrevocably falling in love with her.
The lovers bliss is shattered when
Laila’s brother Tabrez (Ranjeet)
object to the match. Due to
unprecedented turn of events Qais
now acknowledged as Laila’s Majnu
(Madman) is exile from the land while
Laila is married off to the man of her
father’s choice.
Will the love triumph in the end or will
the fate separate this young couple
for the rest of their lives?
