Chal_Band2They may have been streamed live into households via Pepsi’s Battle of the Bands, but the Mekaal Hasan Band has become a household name in its own right. Five years later MHB is releasing its second album Saptak, and has a fabulous new video out that’s the talk of the town.

Their new video, ‘Chal Bulleya‘, shot and directed by the talented Bilal Lashari, has a solid song to its credit. ‘Chal Bulleya’ is a classic Mekaal Hasan song with the traditional classic vocals by Javed Bashir, insane guitar riffs, and the magical flute by Ahsan Pappu.

Bilal LashariThe most noticeable music video of this year (yet) has been directed (once again) by none other than Bilal Lashari and it’s for the Mekaal Hasan Band. ‘Chal Bulleya‘ is a narrative depiction of the seven deadly sins and Lashari has boxed a celebrity in almost each vice. With an opening shot of the band –Mekaal Hasan with newly straightened, almost bonded hair – the story moves on to a hotel floor where a uniformed Juggan Kazim is wheeling room service from door to door.

The opening sequence of the video shows a ‘do not disturb’ sign that is duly checked by the hotel maid who moves on. Inside we encounter visuals of a clock over which time is passing quickly, a pair of aged feet with crumbling toe-nails worse than that of the fabled hobbits’ which belong to a man that seems to have remained in bed for a very, very long time.

Atif Aslam’s ‘Kinara’ employs too many ideas for one video’s good

A music video is supposed to lift a song. Not take it down. Unfortunately, in Atif’s latest video, the former happens.

When Atif Aslam revealed that his next video would be with Bilal Lashari (well-known for his stand out videos of Jal’s ‘Sajni’, Overload’s ‘Dhamaal’, Abrar’s ‘Islamabad’ and Atif’s ‘Hungami Halaat’), it came as a nice surprise. After all, barring ‘Hungami Halaat’, Atif has had a string of music videos that simply haven’t left a lasting impression. That he has become a star despite the abysmal quality of most of his videos is astounding and speaks of true talent and star quality.
