The catchy OST for drama Sinf-e-Aahan is finally out and, so far, it is has gotten a round of applause from some big names including Sana Mir, the former captain of Pakistan national women's cricket team.
Drama Sinf-e-Aahan has been produced by the ISPR, Six Sigma Plus and Next Level Entertainment and stars Sajal Aly, Syra Yousuf, Yumna Zaidi, Kubra Khan, Ramsha Khan and Yehali Tashiya Kalidasa. Currently airing on ARY Digital, the ongoing drama has been getting some rave reviews since the airing of its first episode.
The OST for Sinf-e-Aahan was released on December 17 and, interestingly, the song has two versions. One has been sung by the Zeb Bangash.
The other has been sung by Asim Azhar, who also composed the music and co-wrote the lyrics and melody.
Mir had a fangirl moment on Twitter over the recently released OST. The former cricket captain not only complimented Bangash's soothing vocals, she appreciated how the song feels like an empowering "anthem for our women".
Mir also lauded the drama for giving the "next generation" of Pakistani women "role models who are strong & empowered" as depicted in the drama.
Bangash was pretty thrilled about the compliment. She replied to Mir's post and thanked her. "[This] means the world coming from you," she wrote.
Mir wasn't the only one falling head over heels for the OST. Aly also took to Instagram to appreciate Bangash's vocals. "My favourite!" she wrote on Instagram Stories.
She also went all out to appreciate the "hard work" Azhar poured in to make the song what it is. "I have seen your journey and I am very proud of you because you have worked really hard," she wrote on her Instagram Stories.
"By the way, this is one of my favourite OSTs. Beautiful composition and lyrics. Keep shining my friend," Aly added.
Another one of the drama's leading ladies, Ramsha, also took to Twitter to show her love for the song. "Presenting the soulful OST of the drama serial Sinf-e-Aahan in the soulful voice of the stunning Zeb Bangash," she posted.
The OST definitely works hard to uplift the patriot in you. You can hear quite a bit of Pakistan's national anthem in the composition (Azhar's idea perhaps?) and though at first the addition catches you by surprise, you realise it goes well with the rest of the song. We can see where Mir's comments about the OST came from as well — given how the lyrics encourage women to persevere against the odds — the song does feel like some musical courage for the every day persevering woman.
