When the teaser for musical film Rangreza came out, we thought the track sounded nice. Turns out it's way more than nice. It's great!
The film, starring Bilal Ashraf, Gohar Rasheed and Urwa Hocane, has been described as "a film based on music, in which we are exploring the contrast between classical qawwali and modern pop music. A love story will join the contrast," by director Aamir Mohiuddin.
Aamir Mohiuddin got Josh's Qurram Hussain on board and from the looks of it, that was a great decision!
The first track from the Rangreza soundtrack, which features eight tracks overall, is out and it is proof that Aamir Mohiuddin wants to leave a mark with his directorial debut.
For track 'Phool Khil Jaayein', Abida Parveen teamed up with Asrar Shah and we are stunned at the outcome.
We might have a little bit of an Abida Parveen bias but we have to say, this may be one of the best songs we've heard in a Pakistani movie! We swear we got goosebumps!
The lyrics, written by Asrar Shah himself, are beautiful and the music, by J Ali, does justice to the words and the powerful vocals of two of the best sufi singers around. After a long time we're hearing a very soulful and memorable track. We tip our hats to you Aamir Mohiuddin. You have definitely got us interested in your directorial debut!
Rangreza is slated for release on 21 December and if the rest of the soundtrack is like 'Phool Khil Jaayein' we are definitely excited for it!
