An evening of Urdu poetry in Indian cinema

Gyaan Adab

In association with



Filmon Mein Urdu Shayari


Members of our Guldasta-e-Urdu Fan Club joined us for a delightful evening of Urdu poetry as seen in Indian cinema. The event aimed at encouraging our patrons to find ghazals or nazms that use Urdu in cinema to promote the understanding of this beautiful language.

The open mic event was a success with songs such as Pal Do Pal Ka Shayar, Jhuki Jhuki Si Nazar, Gulab Jism Ka Yunhi Nahi Khila Hoga and many other being sung or recited.

Many of these songs speak of love and affection. Mrs. Mumtaz Peerbhoy commented that perhaps Urdu is the best language to confess one’s love, and the audience couldn’t agree more. On this light note, the event came to a close.

Date: Thursday, 25th April
