Master Abdullah (Urdu: ماسٹر عبدُاللہ ), (1930 – January 31, 1994) was a Pakistani film music composer. He was born in 1930 in Lahore, Pakistan in a family of Lahore musicians. His elder brother Master Inayat Hussain (1923-1993) was a pioneer film music composer in the early days of Pakistan film industry and was much more renowned in Pakistan than Master Abdullah himself. Master Abdullah began his film career in 1962 with an Urdu language film Suraj Mukhi (1962). He got his big breakthrough in the Pakistani film industry with a super-hit Punjabi language film Malangi (1965 film). Music in this film composed by Master Abdullah was superb and most of the film songs became extremely popular among the Pakistani public in the 1960s and still are fondly listened to this day.
Master Abdullah's music tunes were hard and complicated to make but he did this job so well. Whether he was making happy or tragic music tunes, Master Abdullah was considered to be equally bold, skillful and innovative. For evidence, we have dozens of his super-hit film songs that he left behind as his legacy.
