Love Mein Ghum Music ReviewThe cinema of Pakistan, which we all call by the name of Lollywood; after going through a deteriorating phase, is trying hard day in and day out to survive and somehow revive the film industry.

Earlier this year, Shoaib Mansoor’s directorial venture Bol, which starred Atif Aslam in it, paved the way – after delivering a hit film – for Reema Khan’s Love Mein Ghum.

The official soundtrack for the movie Love Mein Ghum is finally out which carries compositions from several artists, locally and internationally; M. Arshad, Najat Ali, Waqar Ali, Hunterz (UK), and Ravi Bal (UK).

Not only that, it comprises names such as Ali Zafar, Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, Kailash Kher, Shreya Goshal, Sunidhi Chauhan and Shaan in the vocals department – which only adds up into the overall expectations of the album. (more…)

The Immediate phrase which comes in mind with the name of Ali Zafar is “Prince of Pop” but this one time “Prince of Pop” has proved that he has much calibre in him than just being associated with the genre “Pop”. Jhoom -An much awaited album of Ali Zafar ever since he revealed that he is going to surprise his fans with something different. And he manages to do it with elan !!

The album kicks off with the title track “Jhoom” which is based on eastern classical beats. And listening to it for first time can make one associate the track with the rustic setting. Basically the song can be referred as a traditional love song. And to top it all we have Ali Zafar’s vocals which doesn’t fail to impress one at all. Overall the song succeeds in giving a soothing effect on the senses. (more…)

By Salman Siddique

I went through a video where Zaain UL Abideen visited a school! The video was titled “People’s Comments”. Well, that’s a lot of love Zaain has fetched from his listeners! Students were going on all crazy. Going crazy for your favorite is like affected with absent-ism now a days, if you attend concerts that is!

For those of you who don’t know much about Zaain Ul Abideen, he is not new to the industry. His album, by the way, is  ‘New’. Apart from Zeal”, Zaain has sung couple of OSTs and some Jingles too. But we are going to talk about the Album in the later part of the post.

So, what does Zaain’s Album “Zeal” include?Zaain debut album Zeal review

  1. Puch Mera Kya Naam
  2. Maahiya
  3. Chue chue
  4. Ayi Ayi
  5. Sayiaan Sayiaan
  6. Saanson Mein
  7. Saiyaan Saiyaan-Unplugged
  8. Chue Chue-Unlpugged

Zaain officialy released “Zeal” couple of days back.

The Album has Slow songs, Semi-Classical, Unplugged Versions and a total Hip-Hop track. This makes the album what we call balanced. Variety of sounds and instruments are used in the Album. I mean not just strumming the G-Chord in the whole song and ending it the same way! Thank goodness! My favorite is Chue Chue” by the way because I am listening it for quite a while now. (more…)

Annie’s new album Kya Yehi Piyar Hai delivers a whopping punch… of disappointing mediocrity

By Amina Baig

Artist: Annie Khalid

Album: Kya Yehi Piyar Hai*

In the wake of listening to Annie Khalid’s new album, Kya Yehi Piyar Hai (KYPH), all one is left with is a toothache. And can you imagine what something that causes a toothache is like? Quite terrible. The other thing one is left with is a desperate scrambling for one’s brain cells. Whatever remains of them, that is. You must wonder if KYPH is as bad as all that. Please let me assure you that it is.

The album opens with the title track, ‘Kya Yehi Piyar Hai’, a fairly okay song. ‘KYPH’the song is all about the achings of a new love and the questions that go with it. This is the first single off KYPH and its video was released on TV not too long ago too. Yes the lyrics are trite at first listen and the tune is catchy, though nowhere as much as the infamous ‘Mahiya’ but after listening to the entire album, this is easily the best song in retrospect. The album closes off with a trance-ish version of ‘KYPH’ so this song makes its way into your subconscious, however begrudgingly you allow it to. (more…)

  12. Hum
  13. Pyar
  14. Zindagi Remix
  15. Aankhain

The two brothers Maaz and Sheeraz both born in Quetta have been creating shock waves as they experiment a new tune on the Pakistani population for a long time. However it is after a lengthy wait of 2 years that their first album has finally been released.

All Night Long brings forth music that is new to many Pakistani ears. So far one of the only forms of music produced in Pakistan that Pakistanis can dance to is Bhangra but the valuable addition of this album proves that there is clearly scope for dance albums in Pakistan. Since Pakistani radio channels are very actively playing dance and remix songs this album has many prospects. (more…)
