Rahat Fateh Ali Khan without a doubt is a magician; a soundtrack by him is like an event. The essence of the classic track is about love and pining.

Fitoor is ruling the primetime with its strong premise and outstanding performances. We can’t overlook the beautiful impact its OST left upon us. The powerful duo of Shani Arshad and Aima Baig spun their magic to create this melodious number. The slow and sorrowful melody is stirred with powerful emotions. The heart touching lyrics by Sabir Zafar made us fall in love with this anthem.
This is what you call a contemporary OST done right. Singing sensations Sahir Ali Bagga and Hadiqa Kiani brought to light great vocals and a tuneful touch to the OST of Kasa-e-Dil. The wonderful song is composed and written by Bagga himself.
This is a new-age romantic track. Wajhi Farooki has done a good job behind the mic. The track takes you on a high with its meaningful lyrics by Farooki. Musically, the arrangement is praiseworthy and keeps you clinging on till the end. The song gets you hooked more and more every time you listen to it.
It wouldn’t be fair to not include the OST of Qayamat as the song gave us all the feels. Crooned by the king of OSTs Naveed Nashad; he brings a modern twist to a very catchy tune. The melodious number had great depth and meaning to it. It is a breath of fresh air for avid music lovers who always seek a new song to hook onto.
Sung by Amanat Ali, this song is simple and has minimal background synth. The singer’s voice is heartfelt and comes out even more prominent because of the poetic lyrics by Saji Gul. The fusion between so many musical instruments is awesome. Elizabeth Rai as the female vocalist has seconded the song very well. This track is a must keep in your music player.
One of the rare OSTs you like from the first time you hear it. Kudos to Nirmal Roy! Nirmal’s voice is so sweet; it grows on you like a Strawberry shake. Qamar Nashad has penned the track and the words are simple yet outstanding. Nabeel Shaukat is entrusted with the responsibility to croon the male vocal. He spins his magic and oozes the mood that is created by the entire musical team.
