attention seeker

Desperate attempt to get attention...not artistic or impressive!

SAQ Apr 13, 2016 12:31am

People finally appreciating tahirs deep lyrics. Bless you

Khan Apr 13, 2016 01:10am

He didn't sing....he just read the lines and also its not ANGUL its Angel...pronunciation is wrong both with original singer and Ali Zafar

Afsana Apr 13, 2016 01:21am

What a fabulous lyrics by tahir shah...wonderful.

Afsana Apr 13, 2016 01:22am

I think before that no one had made an effort for humanity..he is the first person..

Atif Apr 13, 2016 01:55am

Still rubbish

ReaderVolatile Apr 13, 2016 02:11am

For the love of god

its not

Aanngel . . .

Learn to pronounce the word before you make a fool of yourself in front of the world

alex Apr 13, 2016 02:24am

at least taher shah was pronouncing angel correctly what the hell is aangel?

Imran Apr 13, 2016 02:54am

What was that???? where is the song??? and its not "AN GEL"" its angel still Taher rocks

jimmy Apr 13, 2016 03:12am

No match with Taher Shah. Taher Shah is the maestro , no one can come close to him

sad Apr 13, 2016 04:32am

@Common Sense jealous why cant you allow others

Nabeel Apr 13, 2016 06:11am

usman778 Apr 13, 2016 06:32am

"People often complain about things outside the mirror but can't face their own reflection"..

"First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win"...Gandhi

At least Tahir Shah has a courage!!!

Syed Ali Apr 13, 2016 08:12am

Awful is best to say.

GA Apr 13, 2016 08:16am

I am not impressed with Taher Shah's song. But full marks to him for the fame he got world wide because that's what it's all about in the end. Perhaps Taher Shah should borrow a line from Clark Gable and say to his critics: "Frankly my dear, I don't give a damn!"

KB Apr 13, 2016 08:30am

Good one AZ. It sound like any senti-motional situation in Game of Thrones..;)

anees from zaida Apr 13, 2016 08:36am

Taher Shah's next song will probably be about his neighbour's goat - Goat Goat .. Goat of my neighbour..

Absano Apr 13, 2016 10:24am

I have no idea what to make of it. Only thing i can think of is that perceptions play the most important role in acceptance. The same nonsense lyrics coming from a star like Ali Zafar would be accepted but a Tahir Shah would be ridiculed for bad angrezi and bizzarre dressing.

hnmrza Apr 13, 2016 10:25am

What is with this " Ann Gel" pronunciation business? Does no one know the proper way to enunciate the word?

Farhan Apr 13, 2016 10:50am

Ali is the true rock star, after listening him , I kind of liked the lyrics and started thinking how our prospect can be changed by someone so easily.

Shuaib Qasim Apr 13, 2016 11:20am

Tahir bhai is much better than Ali Zafar

Debate-Debit-Credit Apr 13, 2016 11:40am

In the end Taher Shah got the limelight and the popularity that he was looking for! Purple gown did the trick.

salman Apr 13, 2016 11:49am

New form of 'serial killer'

zafar Apr 13, 2016 11:53am

seems in a bad taste; I'm better and I can do better attitude, with utter disregard for Taher Shah creativity

Human Apr 13, 2016 12:06pm

Utter Useless! I think Taher is better than him. Moreover, he is trying to mimic Big B's voice.

Friend Indeed Apr 13, 2016 02:38pm

Folks get a life and forget about pronunciation. Most the pals here seem to have missed the point.... How superficial mankind is........... :)

Common Sense Apr 13, 2016 05:44pm

@sad Don't be silly. Why would I be jealous?

Afsana Apr 13, 2016 09:42pm

@Absano that's really sad..:(

Bangush Apr 13, 2016 11:51pm

I would like Ali Zafar to explain a bit about this clip. It doesn't make any sense.

Omar Apr 14, 2016 12:34am

Is this parody or a weak attempt at comedy! BTW whats an AN-Gel.

AGHA PASHA Apr 14, 2016 10:37am

He copied many songs earlier to get publicity and his original songs are not popular.

shahzaib Apr 14, 2016 10:55am

@ReaderVolatile hey come on Don't judge people on their pronunciation, People all over the World have different accents, and I'm sure you're one of those with fake british accent
