Laila Majnu is a 1976 Indian Hindustani-language romantic drama film directed by Harnam Singh Rawail and starring Rishi Kapoor, Ranjeeta Kaur, and Danny Denzongpa in lead roles. The film's music is by Madan Mohan and Jaidev. Based on the legend of Layla and Majnun, it tells the story of two star-crossed lovers: Laila, a princess and Qais a.k.a. Majnu, a common man. Laila Majnu marked the debut of Ranjeeta Kaur. Upon its release in 1976, it garnered highly positive reviews from film critics, and became a box-office success. The humongous success of the film cemented Rishi Kapoor's status as a bankable star; for after his debut in Bobby (1973), he did not have any major success before Laila Majnu, with the exception of Kabhi Kabhie (1976). However, the success of that film was credited towards Shashi Kapoor and Amitabh Bachchan. Since its release in 1976, Laila Majnu is hailed as a cult classic.

The Legend of Layla and Majnun




The film is based on the ancient Arabic story of Layla and Majnun, which is considered one of the most popular love stories in history. The story traces its roots to a real-life poet named Qays ibn al-Mulawwah, who lived in the 7th century in Arabia. He fell in love with a girl named Layla from his tribe, but her father refused to marry them because of Qays' obsession with her. Qays became mad with grief and wandered around the desert, composing verses in praise of his beloved. He earned the nickname Majnun, which means "possessed" or "madman" in Arabic. Layla was married off to another man, but she remained faithful to Qays in her heart. She died of a broken heart after hearing about his death. Qays was buried next to her grave by his faithful friends.


The story has been retold in various forms and languages over the centuries, with different adaptations and interpretations. Some versions emphasize the mystical aspects of their love, while others focus on the social and political conflicts that separate them. Some versions also add supernatural elements or tragic twists to the plot. The story has inspired many poets, writers, artists, musicians, and filmmakers across cultures and genres.
