Bol (Music review), Pakistani – Shoaib Mansoor, Atif Aslam, Sajjad Ali and Baqir Abbas
Kaho is very Enrique’ish and the song is middling at best. Atif’s other composition, Hona tha pyar, is the real deal; lilting guitar, beautiful tune and brilliant vocals by Atif and Hadiqa. Sajjad Ali’s Din pareshaan hai is a fabulous listen with a deeply affecting tune. Director Shoaib Mansoor’s three tracks are diametrically different – if Hadiqa’s Dil janiyan has a retro Pakistani Pop sound, Mumkin hai offers a pleasant ballad sound, while the thumri’ish Sayyan bolain is the best of the lot with wonderful singing by Shabnam Majeed. Bol is an interesting soundtrack; most of it works rather well.
