Fasana By Abdullah Qureshi
The latest track by Abdullah is dedicated to people struggling with their former significant others moving on with someone else.
Separations are maybe trifled as very lighter in our part of the world since connections are barely seen as an official responsibility in contrast with commitment or even marriage. Nonetheless, the circumstance can be incredibly burdening for some people who have contributed their feelings, time, and endeavors into the expectation that they may wind up together sometime in the future. While music is frequently seen praising growing sentiment, it regularly tries not to grieve over a particular breakup. Henceforth, making it trying for individuals to be expressive over their separations in common places.
Men don’t usually share their feelings or socialized themselves; they rather restrict their feelings to themselves, which is hurting in a way. Or usually comes in as an anger outburst, rather than channeling or portraying their own feelings. Fasana has captured this feeling beautifully. The camera work by Hamza Farooq and Roohi Kashifi is magnificent. The two artists share a beautiful tale of love in an old clip and then it shows a sad feeling as the lyrics blend in. One feels the closeness and comfort shared by the two. However, one does not see it coming that the two would part ways and turn strangers to one another.
The aesthetic is the most beautiful part of this song! The video is a long lost memory, as to how two lovers after parting their ways one misses the other usually the most, the lyrics of Fasana somehow translates as,
Fasana – Abdullah Qureshi Lyrics
?“jab roshni hu subaah
aur jaga ho jahaan
jab fool khilne lage
tere chehre ki tarah
tujhe yaad karne lagu
aawaz dene lagu
par ruk jaau soch ke
tu keh chuka alvida” ?
