Superb mehfil from A to Z: poetry, music, presentation ... Javaani yaad aa gayi Majrooh saheb ki meherbani se. Prof. Trilochan Sastry, Dean, Indian Institute of Management, Bangalore
Having sat through and thoroughly enjoyed “Rooh-e-Majrooh” show, I must mention that it was clearly in a league of its own. It was an indescribably moving tribute to a truly phenomenal poetic genius. To attempt to describe it would be to do it gross injustice. My wife and I look forward to being a part of the appreciative audience in Ibaadat’s future shows also. M.

It was not until I saw Ibaadat’s stage presentation of the life and times of the great poet Majrooh Sultanpuri that I realized what I had been missing all these years. What I saw and heard that day was a rare treat. Rare, because I am not aware of any other group which has attempted such a comprehensive, well researched, creatively satisfying production on such a subject, for stage. It was a tapestry of poetry, music, drama, and spoken word, not only bringing alive the life of one of Hindi Cinema’s greatest legends, but reminding us of those poets whose creative genius made the films memorable, who penned unforgettable words which are undoubtedly the soul of Indian Cinema, and are on the lips of generations of music lovers long after they were written.
