Munday Lahore De vs Naache Re – this season’s better wedding anthem?


Ain’t no desi film without at least one wedding song and Pakistani films over the years have given us countless memorable shaadi songs such as Ballay Ballay [Bin Roye], Shakar Wanda Re [Ho Mann Jahaan], Jalwa [Jawani Phir Nai Aani] and Billo Hai [Parchi] to name a few.

Upcoming Pakistani films, Load Wedding and Parwaz Hai Junoon have also recently released their wedding songs and we are sad to say that they haven’t made much of a mark.

Naache Re from airforce drama Parwaaz Hai Junoon is touted to be the ‘biggest and perfect shaadi song of the season.’ While the song’s melody and vocals are nicely done, the actors have not done justice to it. Hamza Ali Abbasi, Hania Aamir and Shaz Khan’s movements are stiff and their movements not very fluid. The choreography is unfortunately nothing out of the ordinary either. Moreso, the video, despite being colourful, has a very Bole Choodiyan and Yeh Ladka Hai Allah [both from Kabhie Khushi Kabhi Gham] vibe to it.

Nonetheless, the costumes of both the leading ladies are stunning and definitely the perfect shaadi ensembles.

Naache Re has been composed by Azaan Sami Khan and features the beautiful vocals of Zeb Bangash and Jabbar Abbas. The lyrics have been penned by Shakeel Sohail and music produced by Saad Sultan.

The second wedding song of the season is Load Wedding‘s mehndi track, Munday Lahore De featuring Mehwish Hayat and Fahad Mustafa. The video of this song is also very colourful, although the colour is a little overpowering at some points, and has a very Nagada [Jab We Met] meets Baby ko Bass Pasand Hai [Sultan] feel to it.

Contrary to Naacha Re, Munday Lahore De is more energetic and upbeat in the tune as well as the dances. It is definitely a great bhangra song and will make you tap your feet as you listen to it.

Mehwish and Fahad’s chemistry is sparking and both look absolutely brilliant in their Nomi Ansari ensembles.

Mohsin Abbas Haider and Saima Jahan have lent their vocals to the song, while the lyrics have been penned by Shani Arshad and Haider.

While the two definitely don’t fall in the same category as the ones mentioned above [Ballay Ballay, Shakar Wanda Re], we’re hopeful that we like them more once we watch the films.

Parwaaz Hai Junoon and Load Wedding are scheduled to release on Eidul Azha along with the multi-starrer Jawani Phir Nai Aani 2.
