Ever since the new wave of Pakistani cinema has hit the screens, there has been a plethora of new film OSTs everyone has been introduced to. Be it thrillers, comedies or a romantic film, there’s a song that you’d probably find in every narrative, and there’s a chance you’d probably fall in love with it too – especially if it’s of the latter kind.
That’s right! Amidst the myriad of new releases we hear every year, none have weaved as much magic into the lyrics as those romantic songs have. Hardly anyone disagrees with just how amazing love songs could be, and that’s a fact!
Those mellifluous songs make all the difference in our moods, and that’s why today on Diva Jukebox, we explore the world of romantic Pakistani film songs we can’t help but love…
Bekaraan Ishq – Superstar
The biggest film of 2019 had the best song of the year in it as well, and we can all agree on that. Bekaraan Ishq had all the romantic vibes one needed and it’s just a classic in every way!
Behka Na – Parey Hut Love
Maya Ali and Sheheryar Munawar’s Parey Hut Love had songs that everyone couldn’t help but be mesmerised by, and Behka Na was one such example! The song had all the right ingredients for a romantic song, and that’s the reason why it became so popular!
Sajna Door – Teefa in Trouble
The blockbuster film of 2018, Teefa in Trouble had quite a few hit songs in it, but Sanja Door took the cake! It was harmonious in every way, and both Maya Ali and Ali Zafar looked absolutely flawless in this romantic number!
Thaam Lo – Parwaaz Hai Junoon
Parwaaz Hai Junoon wasn’t just high on action, but it was also packed with romance too. The songs in the film showcased a softer side to the armed forces, and Thaam Lo perfectly explored that.
Kooch Na Karin – Load Wedding
Load Wedding was full of social messages along with its romantic storyline, and we loved the latter, wherever it was, in parts of the film. Those romantic scenes in the film were explored perfectly with songs like Kooch Na Karin and we couldn’t help but love them.
Bol – Cake
A film that was full of family drama, Cake was surely a winner of 2018 for its beautiful storyline and cinematic aesthetics. However, another thing that we loved in the film was its music, and the song Bol by Natasha Humera Ejaz just added to the magic.
Tere Naal – Punjab Nahi Jaungi
Punjab Nahi Jaungi had quite a few romantic songs in it, but there was some which just worked its magic on the audiences better than any other. One such example was Tere Naal which just showed us the chemistry between Humayun Saeed and Mehwish Hayat perfectly!
Phool Khil Jayein
A mellifluous song from Urwa Hocane and Bilal Ashraf’s Rangreza, Phool Khil Jayein was that perfect song you need to make you understand how beautiful love it! Plus, if the vocals are by maestros such as Abida Parveen and Asrar, then it just can’t get any better.
Tere Bin Jeena – Bin Roye
A film that people couldn’t help but be addicted to, Bin Roye starring Mahira Khan and Humayun Saeed was just the perfect example of where romantic songs were adding magic to the narrative. Amidst them all, Tere Bin Jeena was like the crown to top it all!
Hona Tha Pyar – Bol
One of the first few songs that restarted the trend of romantic songs in Pakistani films, Atif Aslam’s Hona Tha Pyar for Bol was just a track no one would be forgetting any time soon. It was saccharine sweet, and its lyrics, just beautiful!
