Kalyug

Ok i am not talking in a spiritual sense here. This is about a Bollywood movie "Kalyug".
Why am i talking about it? It has 2 good songs for one.

Jiya Dhadak Dhadak and Aadat.

I heard Jiya Dhadak Dhadak on my friend, Chhaya Gore's cell caller tune and loved it and later it heard it on tv. Its a smooth song with voice from Rahat Fateh Ali Khan and Ustaad Saami.

Aadat..
When i searched for this songs lyrics on net (in vain), i got 3-4 diffrent versions of this song..none matching the one that is featured in this movie. One is by Jal (Atif broke apart from this group right??) another 1/2 are from Atif aslam's album Jal Pari.....


Point to note that Singers of both songs are Pakistani. It is really good to hear so many good singers from Pakistan and getting recognition in Bollywood and Hollywood films.

Atif Aslam and Rahat Fateh Ali Khan -- the late Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan's nephew -- and Ustaad Saami.

I remember the aalap song in "Dead Man Walking" by Fateh Ali Khanji.....haunting

Just cannot start about Strings,Jal,Junoon. . . . . the list goes on.

I really admire the way these Paki singers are ruling the indian cinema. Bands like Strings are making their way in bollywood. I like their new song "Jinda.." the title track of JINDA.

Indian film industry is glamourous and fast growing. I want all the Paki talent to join it.

BTW I really dont mind if the nation as a whole merges back to India. After all how long can a child stay far from its mother :)
