The first song from Mahira Khan and Fahad Mustafa's upcoming film Quaid-e-Azam Zindabad has been released and 'Loota Rey' is an upbeat number that promises to be the soundtrack for many a mehndi next wedding season.
On Saturday, the first song of the film was shared on multiple social media platforms. In a Bollywood-esque manner, Khan and Mustafa are seen dancing to the vocals of Asrar Shah and Aima Baig.
The actors both described the song as "loud and peppy" on Instagram. Their post received comments from actors Sana Javed, Mehwish Hayat, Humayun Saeed, Bilal Ashraf, Ahmed Ali Butt, Sami Khan and Ayesha Omar.
Many netizens credited the actors for putting a lot of effort into the song in terms of their performance.
This Twitter user was simply in awe of Khan's "aura" and screen presence throughout the music video.
But the song didn't receive a standing ovation from everyone online. For this user, the song itself is catchy but they expected more from Khan and Mustafa. "The choreography is lazy & set looks repetitive, been-there-done-that. Both Mahira and Fahad look great, but this is underwhelming."
Another user compared it to the song 'Ek Chumma' from Bollywood film Housefull 4.
Quaid-e-Azam Zindabad sees Mustafa as a cop who may take bribes but also fights the bad guys. Khan is his love interest in the film. The film has been directed by Nabeel Qureshi and produced by him and Fizza Ali Meerza.
The film is an action comedy and the duo's second appearance together after Khan's cameo in Actor-In-Law.
