KARACHI: Sometimes entertainment trends in Pakistan don’t make much sense. For instance, Coke Studio became more popular after Rohail Hyatt left, people loved Momina Mustehsan and Rahat Fateh Ali Khan’s ‘Afreen‘ and Meray Paas Tum Ho is doing fairly well commercially.
And therefore, the social media trolling against PSL’s anthem for 2020 makes no sense either.
While in the past, Ali Zafar and Fawad Khan carried the torch (Fawad less successfully so), this year’s anthem has gone full throttle with not just one but several high profile names. Produced by Zulfi, Tayyar Hain features veterans Haroon, Arif Lohar and Ali Azmat while also featuring young blood Asim Azhar.
Zulfi can barely ever go wrong and he stays true to his musical aesthetic with Tayyar Hain while also remembering that this song is an anthem for a major cricket anthem. Therefore, what one hears is a brilliant musical arrangement and a song that will definitely get heartbeats racing when heard blaring at the stadium.
Add to the fact that the energy on display in the video is infectious. Can someone get us in touch with Haroon and Asim Azhar’s trainer? We want to dance like that but we’re afraid we’ll pull a muscle, or ten.
