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

Atif parachuting down to ground. Atif buried in the sand. Atif as a superstar. Too many ideas are as bad for a video as too many cooks are for the broth

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.

Roxen COPIED Omer Nadeem

Omar Nadeem and Haider used to play for Jal initially. Jal didn’t give any credit to them for their work. They started working with Atif then in his live sessions. After Atif released his album he said goodbye to them. They started two projects then one with Roxen and other was their solo project Sifaar. Omar Nadeem composed two hits Yadien and Tau Phir Aao for Roxen. After that he stoped working with the band. The band took his compositions that he made after quiting the band and didnt give him credit for that. Omar has already filed a case on Roxen which I personally think wouldn’t be of much use. It’s really bad to see such artists getting screwed and others gettin famous for them.
