Kaish Amari comes from a wealthy Islamic family. At the tender age of six he is sent to school and gets friendly with a young girl named Laila. Both of them become close friends, so much so that Kaish gets himself punished and beaten for her. They mature in age so does their love much to the chagrin of Laila's dad, who wants her to marry a wealthy Arabian, Bahksh, a noble Prince. Now the region is aflame with their love story, Kaish, who is now known as Majnu, cannot get Laila out of his mind and roams around the desert semi-senile, without food or drink, while Laila is getting wed to the man of her father's choice. The question remains will love triumph in the end or is this young couple fated to be separated for the rest of their lives. Written by
Laila Majnu - Love is the fabric that visions are made of, and visions the ultimate reward or punishment for the most sublime of innocent sins against humanity; the sin of loving with undying passion and compassion, one soul of merging with it the limit of Oneness - of reaching the threshold of God's own domain. From the glorious pageantry of the past two lovers detached themselves and walked through the ages, undisturbed and unaware of human jealousies and weaknesses - LAILA and MAJNU. The very skies echo their names, the magic of their love runs through centuries as blood through veins - warm blazing and life giving. No love has ever survived for years, no two mortals had been nearer to the Ultimate than LAILA and MAJNU. Laila merged into her Majnu and he in turn drew her to in confines, in all humility even when his only desire was fulfilled absolutely, their dream had come true, they would be remembered as LAILA MAJNU and not as Laila and Majnu.
