With more of a qawwali flavour than his recent Bollywood output, Rahat Fateh Ali Khan‘s “Pata Yaar Da” sees the maestro singing of destiny and love in a music video featuring a performance of the song interspersed with scenes from the just released Zinda Bhaag– reputed to be Pakistan’s first film submission for the Oscars in 50 years, and one of the most talked about films to come out of that country since the record-breaking Bol two years ago.
Although the jaded amongst us will question the need for yet another Rahat film track, there’s no denying his ability to deliver outstanding recordings time and again. With the associated hype around the film increasing daily and music by Sahir Ali Bagga, “Pata Yaar Da” will surely be no exception and could be destined for great things.
