[Don't look at my heart with such a hatred and anger, My heart is poor soul who is still in agony and pain because my beloved has departed. ]
This is written by Gulzar, inspired by Hazrat Amir Khosro's poet written in Persian + BrijBhasha...
zihaal-e-miskeen makun taghafful, duraaye naina banaaye batiyaan.
Ghulami was released in 1985 .The Hindi-language Indian feature film directed by J.P. Dutta. The film has an ensemble cast comprising Dharmendra, Mithun Chakraborty, Mazhar Khan,Kulbhushan Kharbanda, Raza Murad, Smita Patil, Reena Roy, Anita Raj, Naseeruddin Shah and Om Shivpuri. Amitabh Bachchan provides the narration.Ghulami has music and lyrics by Laxmikant Pyarelal and Gulzar respectively.
J.P. Dutta possess the knack to extract the best from his caste. All the main characters - Dharmendra, Mithun Chakraborty, Nasiruddin Shah, Kulbhushan Kharbanda etc. have delivered their best. Leading ladies- Smita Patil, Reena Roy and Anita Raj also have done pretty well in their low-profile roles in this male-dominated movies. Supporting caste (Sulochana, Om Shivpuri, Bharat Kapoor, Mazhar Khan, Raza Murad etc.) has also done justice to the respective roles assigned. Except the over-the-top Anjan Shrvastav (the accountant of the landlord), all look flesh and blood human-beings.
Ghulami is an outstanding movie which was a box-office hit also. To understand the caste-ridden class-conflicts and related dynamics in India, this movie can be used just like a textbook.
