Abrar-ul-Haq is one of the finest singers of Pakistan who has been in the field for more than 30 years. His songs like Nach Punjaban and Kuriyan Lahore de Hain are still in the favorite songs’ list in the youth phones of Pakistan and other countries as well who have some relation with Urdu.
For few years, the singer was not in the field. Right now, the man is back. First, he released Bhabi te Devarand three weeks ago and then Chamkeeli, two days ago. The videos are available on Youtube.
Chamkeeli and Bhabi te Devar are different from his usual songs. They both are energetic and mood-lifting but they are like his old songs.
In Chamkeeli, there is Mehwish Hayat as bride who is very dominant on her husband, Shahveer Jaffrey who is submissive- labeled as DESIGNER in the video, at the wedding as it is played in the song
“Ooye vekho kaisa zamana kaisi raat aai hai
Chamkeeli baraat lay saath aai hai”
Unlike other brides, she has brought her BARAAT herself. Instead of applying mehndi and haldi on Bride’s hand, they are applied on the groom’s hand who is confused and fed with ladoo. Meanwhile, bride is shown too hyperactive. She moved money above his head as NAZAR UTAARNA. In the video, it is shown that it was Shahveer who has to leave his home and shift to DULHAN’S house.
The song is quite funny but at the same time it is too much. Directly or indirectly, the singer has made fun of designers. Instead of breaking stereotypes, which is the responsibility of celebrities and public figures, Abrar-ul-Haq has supported it by having lyrics
Munda minor lagda hai
Haye manu te thora ja DESIGNER lagda hai”.
The best part of Chamkeeli is Abrar’s voice. It is still very sharp and strong to listen. However, the song itself is not as good as Billo te ghar, tere naal pyaar hogaya and many others but if you want to try something different, then give it a short and give your feedback!
