Coke Studio10 has gone for a new approach I guess. Ruin good old songs and get people to criticize it so much so that it ends up on Youtube’s trending list. What a publicity stunt.
Each song has a saving grace who tries his/her best to save the song but it just falls flat on the ground.
“Laal Meri Pat” By Quratulain Balouch feat Akbar Ali & Arieb Azhar
The starting of the song just gets our hopes high. And as it’s a Coke Studio song, we just can’t keep our expectations low.
CS10 has tried it’s best to maintain the essence of the song in a Godly manner, but there’s too much going on. Just when we expect some high pitch and beat drop, there’s none. You can’t just low pitch all the key notes of such a powerful song. You’ve to keep the audience alive and interested.
QB has such strong vocals that you just can’t ask her to hold them back. Arieb Azhar can successfully be passed as Taher Shah while Akbar Ali is of very little significance in the song even though his sur is on point.
Just hope CS10 has something better in episode 3. Fingers crossed!!!
