Tumhe paake kaha khush they
Tumhe khoke kaha royen
Karen to kya kare koi
Agar taqdeer hee soye
This year, Raaz-e-Ulfat is nominated for the best OST at the Lux Style Awards ’21 and here are all the reasons why fans will be voting for their favourite drama serial! Lyrics by Sabir Zafar & a Shani Arshad composition rendered the OST with an intensely tragic feel – much like the lost love feels that the drama echoed throughout.
OSTs come & go with every new drama on the block, but it will be safe to say that Raaz e Ulfat presented a haunting tune that settled in with audiences well into the first few episodes. Not just that, but it was employed to deliver the feel of ‘secret of love’ as we scanned a lantern-lit night sky over the beach with Mushk (Yumna Zaidi) & Irtiza (Shehzad Sheikh) bound in an incomplete kinda love. Mushk’s life journey takes a tragic twist & the words, once again, resonate with viewers …
And the lyrics catch on to the moment:
Tumhe paake kahan khush they
Tumhe khoke kaha royen
The same OST score filtered through the air later in the drama as Mushk stands beneath falling rose petals and Ismail Mian (Mirza Gohar Rashid) looks on – with the first signs of ‘something like love’ beating in his yet (unhopeful) heart!
Tumhee to they khayalo main
Tumhee they bekhayali main
The lyrics play on, adding depth to a scene that grew on the audiences, as did Ismail Mian’s character – much older to Mushk, yet, turned totally lovable, as audiences rooted for him!
Yes, The Lyrics From The Raaz-e-Ulfat OST Will Move You
The pain of love, of feeling love and the relief of letting go … Mushk’s journey comes to a rightful end and the lyrics whisper the unsaid emotions yet again.
The OST is performed by the talented Aima Baig and Shani Arshad, whose vocals bring the love triangle between Mushk, Irtiza and Ismail Mian to life.
However, there’s only so much good vocals can do is the lyrics don’t resonate with the audience. However, that wasn’t the case with the OST of Raaz-e-Ulfat. The lyrics by Sabir Zafar gave the OST a tragic ring and made it the listening experience memorabilia. Direction by Siraj ul Haq added the intense feels that matched the mood of the story & gave an overall learning experience that stayed with viewers well after the final episode. Listen in to the OST below which has clocked in over 54 million views so far, & then check out what fans have to say.
Here’s What Fans Had To Say About The OST
So is the Raaz e Ulfat OST a strong contender at the LSA’21? You get to decide very soon!
More on the story
Raaz-e-Ulfat is a tale of love, longing and resileince. It is penned down by Maha Malik and produced by 7th Sky Entertainment, it stars Yumna Zaidi (Mushk), Shahzad Shaikh (Irtiza) and Gohar Rasheed (Ismail ). The drama tells the story of Mushk who comes from a strict and conservative background who’s lured by the opulence of Irtiza’s world and falls in love with him. However, after numerous obstacles in their relationship, Irtiza ends up leaving her at the altar bringing shame to her family. Here enters Ismail Mian, a middle-aged man, father of two, whose wife had just died of Cancer. With no other choice lefrt Mushk’s family marries her off to Ismail not paying heed to her protests.
Raaz-e-Ulfat Successfully Brings Dynamic Characters To Life
The story was well-recieved by the Pakistani youth as it shows the tumultuous relationship children often have with their parents. How it’s often a seesaw of emotions and it takes a while for children to understand where their parents are coming from and it takes them even longer to realise that their parents are often right.
The storyline was a delightful relief from the run of the mill drama plots and the characters actually showed some depth. The dynamic characters played by the uber-talented cast did phenomenally well in depicting how people learn and grow from their mistakes and experiences and how our flaws, in the end, are what make us human.
The Cast Brought Their A-game!
Moreover, Ismail Mian’s character palyed by Gohar Rasheed was a crowd favourite. Hailing form a humble background and struggling with his grief, he was still attentive and patient and put up with a lot of Mushk’s resentment until he finally won her over. Definitely a great blueprit for writing supportive men in dramas, we defintily need more characters like Ismail Mian! Plus, let’s not forget the magic brought forth by Yumna Zaidi as Mushk. Her naivete added multiple layers to the plot and made us root for her success. Lastly, the mother played by Hina Khawaja Bayat and Shahzad Shaikh’s Irtiza was done exceptionally well and we couldn’t have had a more rounded cast!
