Dhoom 3

Dhoom 3

An event that has been really irking me for the past few days has been the release of Dhoom 3 in Pakistan and the way it’s been publicized by the self-acclaimed media leader of Pakistan, GEO network, like if it’s the best thing happened to the country in recent past.

To start off with I would really like to make it clear that I have absolutely nothing against the release of Indian movies. I believe that our nation already faces some serious drought of entertainment and if something entertains them well and makes them happy no matter where it comes from, it should prevail here, obviously abiding by the necessary rules and regulation in this regard.

Every band in the world claims to be “different” but Swaras certainly is, they are always about the quality while paying attention to the details and never in a rush to release their work. So far every single of theirs is very experimental in nature especially when it comes to the aspect of world fusion.

But Now It seems that one of the entertainment source is on the road to recovery and the developments taking place in the past few months have been very encouraging with regards to the local cinema. Just couple of days back there has been a huge news for the Pakistan film industry as ARY Films and Riaz Shahid Films signed a joint venture agreement which will see them producing, distributing and marketing 4 films every year.

Jamal Rahman talks about his musical beginning, establishing TBR and his future plans

Jamal Rahman of True Brew Records

Jamal Rahman of True Brew Records talks to Ahmad Uzair about his musical beginning, establishing True Brew Records, and his future plans. Here is what he has to say about all of this.
Q) Hey Jamal, tell us a bit about your musical background and how did you get into this profession?

I owe the beginning of my relationship with music to my parents. When I was 6 or 7, they bought a Bose sound system to complement their already huge cassette tape collection. There was always a diverse span of music playing in the house, and that laid the foundation for what would become my own production aesthetic. Later, as an early teen, my brother introduced and taught me the guitar and I started recording and performing a year after. Never looked back since!
