First and foremost, I apologize for late review. I was on vacation and was travelling yesterday. I, therefore, could not view or review the episode.
Dastaan-e-Moomal Rano, The Sketches
I haven’t googled, but I think this is the first time ‘The Sketches’ is performing in Coke Studio. I have seen them win awards in various award shows; so they are good, or popular, for sure.
I don’t understand the lyrics, again. Moomal Rano is a painful and heart wrenching tale. The song is a good depiction of pain. Seriously, this song was painful to listen to.
The vocals are good.
Rating: 2/5 stars.
The famous duo of Season 10 – Baazi, Sahit Ali Bagga and Aima Baig pair up again this time for ‘Malang’. I don’t understand the lyrics.
Blame it on the lyrics or was he just a tad bit louder and screechy than Roye Roye, I didn’t like Sahir Ali Bagga’s vocals in this one. Similarly, Aima’s portion in this song also reminded me a lot of the earlier duet – Baazi. To a large extent, I felt that it is the same song. Perhaps after a few replays, I will get the groove. For now, this one is not for me.
Rating: 2.5/5 stars.
Dil Hai Pakistan
And the rockstar Ali Azmat is back.
The song… is really two distinct songs. The first one starts with a strange, nostalgic, cyclic, repetitive vocals by
Mangal, Darehan and Shayan
Dambora as he describes beauty and love. starts
The vocals are good. I like the tune as well. This song would have been another one that I would play repeatedly, if only there was no or very little music. I think the loud music just killed the essence of this otherwise beautiful composition.
Rating: 4/5 stars.
- Dil Hai Paksitan is definitely star of this episode.
- My favourite from all three episodes is Ghoom Charakhra and Roye Roye now.
- Mahi Aa Ja gets a special mention. I’m Asim’s fan.
