Lyrics by: Tanvir Naqvi

Composed by: Bakshi Wazir


Something is off.

That’s my feeling when I read this one. This is the first time in the history (since I have known Shuja Haider’s music, that I wasn’t hooked to the song from the first time.

I like the melody and I like their vocals, separately. Rachel has a very distinct voice and she has sung well. Shuja Haider never goes wrong. But they don’t go together.

I feel bad for not liking this song. I am such a big fan of Shuja’s work, especially in Coke Studio. Alif’s OST is also nice. But, this one didn’t work for me.



Until next time, lots of love.
