Moor (Music review), Pakistani – Strings
Javed Bashir’s powerful voice leads Jogiya and Talabgaar hoon; the latter makes a punchy impact with its harmonious Baloch-style qawali. Pusthu star Rahim Shah is at his best in the somber Gul bashri that sparkles with an expansive orchestration, while Meesha Shafi’s Eva, despite all the pulsating guitaring, falls flat as a tune. Tum ho is typical Strings – mellow and ballad’ish, but Ku ku ku, beyond the hook, is less interesting. Jeye jeye is pleasant, but filmy, while Noman Farooqi’s Peera ho doesn’t cut it either. The 5 themes are aptly background’ish. Strings’ much-awaited comeback is a tepid affair.
