Ik Pal is undoubtedly one of the best Mehndi songs of the year. This song is a visual treat. From Umar Sayeed’s aesthetically pleasing clothes to the beautifully constructed sets, this song is nothing short of what Sanjay Leela Bhansali can produce across the border. Sung by the super talented duo of Hadiqa Kayani and Harshdeep Kaur, Ik pal marks the return of Meera Jee in a traditional dance number, and honestly we can’t keep our eyes off of her.

The Chhalawa title song is colorful, vibrant and full of energy. Mehwish Hayat and Azfar Rehman are great but the standout performer of the song for me is Zara Noor Abbas. Zara brings a perfect combination of expressions and attractively unique dance moves to the silver screen. Composed by Shiraz Uppal and written by Shakeel Sohail the song is the kind that stays on your mind for at least a couple of days.Oh and this is the type of song that you can listen to on the treadmill as well!

As a Pakistani what makes us really proud is that we have so many talented people in our country. Who needs Bollywood music if we have great artists within our country? Whether it’s in the acting department, song composition, direction, choreography and singing everyone in our country has massive potential. Therefore it’ll be wrong on our side to not acknowledge what they’ve done with the film songs this year. Whether it was the catchy party song Haye Dil Bechara or the modern qawwali Ghalat Fehmi we loved them all.
