Pakistan's favourite rock band, Junoon, has reunited after 15 years for the Sooper Junoon World Cup anthem, and we can't help but tap our feet to it.
We think ‘Choolein Aasmaan / Badlain Jahan’ is a beautiful ode to inclusivity, identifying and weaving together various segments of the Pakistani society.
Here's what we think makes the anthem worth all the views it's getting online:
1. The song holds a beautiful patriotic vibe
We feel the video ably reinforces the underlying message of Sooper's World Cup campaign: unity and strength in diversity.
Side note: We feel Ali Azmat's pakola-green aviators are hard to miss.
2. The anthem brings everyone together for a patriotic celebration
With its core idea being #SooperHaiPooraPakistan, ‘Choolein Aasmaan / Badlain Jahan’ features various marginalised groups of Pakistanis; highlighted with great emphasis are members of the trans community, religious minorities and people with disabilities, all coming together to cheer team Pakistan on.
3. The beat is catchy, the enthusiasm contagious
We feel Ali Azmat's vocals give a catchy ring to the song, and that's what makes it the it cricket anthem of the season.
We've got to admit this comeback track makes us all want to pull out our cricket jerseys and truly go green.
