Storyline

Mirza Asadullah Khan(GHALIB) is a migrant from Agra to Delhi. He stops receiving his pension thereby leasing to a never ending burden of debts. He finds it difficult in the initial phase to impress local poets with his poems. But subsequently, he becomes one of the most famous and renowned poets. The trio of Gulzar, Jagjit Singh and Naseeruddin Shah has done exceptionally well in bringing the story of Ghalib to local masses. Written by Anonymous

The best serial on Mirza Ghalib

This serial is a timeless creation, which shows the life of Mirza Ghalib. There can be no better director to direct this TV serial than gulzar saheb, no better actor than nasuruddin shah sahab, and needless to mention this serial owes to Jagjit singh, the ghazal maestro.

The ghazals of this TV serial and a masterpiece, unmatched. This serial is ahead of its time in action,direction and content. Its so beautifully portrayed that you move along with the story which makes you feel the time in which mirza ghalib lived. This serial makes you cry, and laugh all together. Its a must watch if you are fan of any of the above mentioned people. I can watch it over and over again, and can go into the time of "Mirza Asadullah Khan Ghalib "

Ghalib's sher not only have immediate effect on the heart but it makes you think too.
