As Eid-ul-Azha fast approaches along with the impending release of the movie Heer Maan Ja, IRK Films and Arif Lakhani Films have just released the movie’s title track, Heer Maan Ja, for the audiences. The song that has been sung by Herbie Sahara and produced by Vee Music does not come off as the upbeat number it aspires to be.
The single introduces main leads Hareem Farooq, Ali Rehman Khan and Faizan Sheikh, clad in all black. Their leather jackets glow in the backdrop of neon lights, reminding the listeners of the heydays of the British Punjabi bhangra scene but, clearly not as amusing or hummable.
In a time when directors are going a level up with production design and art direction, the visual treatment of the title track does not add much value to an already fast but forgettable composition. One wonders why acts such as Sahara UK only make it to Pakistani ventures after becoming irrelevant elsewhere.
