Zohaib Hassan Fails To Impress In Coke Studio 7
For everyone there is a song that is close to them because of fond memories of childhood. I am sure you also have a few songs which bring back a lot of lovely recollection of thoughts for you. I recently listened to Zohaib Hassan’s “Zara Chehra Toh Dikhao” and was in disenchantment. (Watch Video)
The song was composed for Coke Studio 7, which has yet again released with a bang in Pakistan for Pakistani audience. We all know Amir Zaki is the finest musician of Pakistan, undoubtedly. Keeping in mind that the Coke Studio version of Zohaib Hassan’s ultimate classic is blessed with the music composition of legendry Amir Zaki, my excitement level amplified. But sadly, the song failed to grab the attention in terms of its lost melody and softness in voice. Both Amir Zaki and Zohaib Hassan could not satisfy their fans. The only thing that was good about the song was, watching them perform together.
I wish they could have at least met the benchmark if not surpassing the original version!
