Owais Mughal
Title: na kaho
Lyrics: Nadeem Asad
Singer: Aaroh – It is a band of four: Nabeel, Kamran, Farooq and Khalid. The band name Aaroh was suggested by Shoaib Mansoor.

Apparently this song is atleast 6 (or even more) years old. I recently heard it and got hooked. I’ve now listened to it uncountable times and should I say that ‘it grows on you’. The poetry is beautiful. aap bhi suniye!


Title: Kabhi to tum ko
Singer: Ahmed Rushdi
Music by: Robin Ghosh
Year: 1967
Movie: Chakori

When Chakori was first released, it didn’t get a single buyer in Karachi or Lahore. It was then released in Dhaka only. Later one cinema in Karachi (Paradise) showed it after the movie was already called a ‘flop’. But from there onwards the movie became a hit and made Nadeem an overnight superstar.

This song was picturized in then East Pakistan – Beautiful Bengal scenery is obvious in the song.

Title: Janaan (Pashto)
Singers: Hadiqa Kayani and Irfan Khan

I admit that I don’t understand Pashto beyond a few words, but this song has a catchy tune and nice vocals – hence made it to my list here. This is now my new favourite.


Title: tum kehti ho
Singer: Junaid Jamshed
Year: 2001
Album: dil ki baat
Lyrics: Hasan Akbar Kamal. He is/was Urdu teacher Government Delhi Boys College in Federal-B-Area. I had the privilege of using his Urdu notes in my intermediate exams. Nothing important – just a trivia and something that came to my mind as I saw Hasan Akbar Kamal’s name on the CD cover.

This song is among my all time favourites by Junaid.

    My favorite is na kaho, but they’re all pretty nice.

  2. Adnan Ahmad says:

    Good vocal. The visuals really don’t match up to the song and the music. I would be surprised if Shoaib Mansoor produced this video.

  3. Junaid says:

    Very interesting selection.

    But I must say it only proves to me how Ahmed Rushdie still beats all the rest hands down. And older music was so much more profound.

    You are right. I found out that ‘na kaho’ song has been around since atleast 2004. Corrections are made in the post. thanks

    Owais, I think Na Kaho is more than two years old. Here’s a great cover of it that you might also enjoy:
