explore the dark
side with ‘Bhula Doon Ga’
InQishaaf is a band
comprising of two musicians from Islamabad who started performing at local
gigs four years back when they were in Karachi. Soon, they realized music
wasn’t just a past-time; it was, in fact, their passion. That’s when
they officially formed a band and started working towards producing original
music. Fast forward four years and they have their first album out, which is
a great achievement considering how long it usually takes to release a
The unique aspect of
InQishaaf’s music is that it is a fusion of the East and West. While
Shariq gives a little touch of the melodies from the West, it is Shoaib who
draws strong influence from Eastern melodies, making them both play with a
contagious energy. Their album expresses an array of emotions. From love to
hate, solitude, misery, rage and romance; their music expresses it all.
It has been a while since
InQishaaf released their album and a video, but the band has recently
translated the first track of their album ‘Bhula Doon Ga’ into a video.
The track ‘Bhula Doon Ga’ itself is one of the best tracks off the
album. The track starts with a sweet yet catchy tune, which is a fusion of
the East and the West. The song goes on to talk about how the singer hopes
to forget, move on in life and the memories that hold the beautiful past.
This track is definitely towards the melancholy side yet the tune isn’t
that slow and hence refreshing.
The tune is interesting
and catchy to an extent but it’s one of those tracks that don’t
instantly click with you. ‘Bhula Doon Ga’ will take its time to grow on
you and might need a few listens before it does.
As far as the video is
concerned, it’s a great attempt and clearly an improvement from their
debut video! ‘Bhula Doon Ga’s’ video begins with clouds, which blend
into shots from the entire video instantly as the tune starts playing. The
video goes on to show the musicians standing on a platform from where the
entire city can be seen. Clearly it’s somewhere up in the mountains. The
location is divine and makes you want to forget everything and go there just
for a look. It’s one of those places that make you feel like you’re on
top of the world, quite literally. The fact that InQishaaf picked up this
area to shoot parts of their video works well for them.
On the other side,
there’s a completely different story going on which shows a shattered girl
sitting in a corner of a dark room sobbing and shedding tears over her pain.
It shows her trying to hold on to material memories and grabbing them as
hard as she can because that’s all she can do now. This part
of the video represents how a person can be so helpless at times. There’s
a guy sitting in front of him who is so helpless that he can’t even
comfort her. This part of the video needs serious concentration to
understand what’s going on, which is a negative aspect of the video
because when a viewer is watching it he might not be able to grasp the
concept in one go.
However, considering how
sorrowful the song is and how serious it is, the video demands a certain
level of momentousness too, which is very present in the video. Also, the
constant use of paintings and emphasis on them gives a very artistic and
unique touch to the video.
All in all, ‘Bhula Doon
Ga’ is a great effort by InQishaaf and it shows how they’re growing with
every video they bring out. Watch out for this track on YouTube and local
McQueen's Will Made Public, Shows Love
The late fashion designer
Alexander McQueen left most of his considerable fortune to charities but
also left money to his siblings, household staff and for the upkeep of his
dogs, according to documents made public Tuesday.
McQueen, one of the
brightest stars in British fashion, committed suicide last year just days
after his mother's death.
The documents show that
McQueen, who was 40, left an estate worth just over 16 million pounds ($26
He left 250,000 pounds
each to his three sisters and two brothers, and 50,000 pounds each to his
two-person household staff, his godson, and each of his nieces and nephews.
The animal lover left
50,000 pounds for the continual care of his dogs and donated 100,000 pounds
each to two charities that help animals: the Battersea Dogs and Cats Home
and the Blue Cross Animal Welfare Charity. Both provide care for abandoned
animals and help find them homes.
Kim Hamilton, chief
executive of the Blue Cross animal charity, said the group is
"thrilled" with the bequest.
"It is a touching
tribute to his obvious love for his dogs and his legacy will allow us to
help many thousands more sick and homeless animals across the UK," she
McQueen also left 100,000
pounds each to the London Buddhist Center and the Terrence Higgins Trust,
which helps promote sexual health and safe sex practices.
The designer, known for
his edgy and artistic creations, left the bulk of his estate to his
Sarabande charity with the suggestion that some money be used for
scholarships at London's Central St. Martin's College of Art and Design.
makes a comeback
Even though we hated her
acting, who didn't love girl-next-door Karisma Kapoor? She is probably the
reason why Bollywood ladies ditched the baby-fat look and went for the more
toned body look. (Both the Kapoor sisters have a knack for changing trends:
Kareena started the size zero revolution.) Remember Dil Toh Pagal Hai and
Karisma's barely there tank tops and biker shorts?
So yes, we are more than
excited to hear the elder Kapoor sister is planning to come back into
Bollywood. Of course, after her marriage to Sanjay Kapur didn't work out, we
were expecting her to try her luck at acting again.
Well, not exactly acting.
Actually, Lolo isn't starting off with acting just as yet, but something
else she was better at, back in the day: dancing. Of course, that's the more
effective way to make a comeback. Raveena Tandon just proved that by doing
an 'item number' for Amitabh Bachchan's latest film, Bbuddah Hoga …Terra
Anyway, Sajid Nadiadwala
is busy making Housefull 2, and is of course going to have an item number in
it (last time he got Jacqueline Fernandez to do the job.) According to a
unit hand, Karisma wasn't the first choice for the item number. Rani
Mukherji was approached for it earlier. But it seems things did not work out
so the makers of Housefull 2 approached Karisma who is a close friend of
producer Sajid Nadiadwala.
with Sajid is very old. The duo has worked together for films like Jeet and
Judwaa . Sajid and Lolo are still in touch. So after Rani refused, Sajid
thought of Karisma who looks as sexy as she was earlier,” says a source
close to the H2 unit.
Bachchan apologizes to Hrithik
Well not to him directly.
But Amitabh Bachchan did have a lot of apologizing and
explaining to do after his tweet on Twitter outraged a lot of people,
including Farhan Akhtar's dad, Javed Akhtar.
It all happened when
Amitabh Bachchan was making an innocent statement, showing his appreciation
for Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara (ZNMD) without know what he was getting himself
into. Here's what he tweeted: "ZNMD is a triumph of spirit and male
bonding ... and Farhan and
just so impressive ... natural, composed and effortless." There's
something obviously wrong with this tweet: Where is Hrithik Roshan's name?!
Even though it is obviously an accident, it is still screaming for some
Obviously Hrithik's fans
waged a war on Senior Bachchan's Twitter page. Javed Akhtar also commented
on the obvious accident saying: "Great that you liked Abhay &
Farhan but I am sure that Hrithik's omission was just a slip. Who can deny
that he was outstanding."
But as the bashing
continued, Amitabh Bachchan finally tweeted again saying how he had
personally congratulated Hrithik over the phone: "Hrithik Fan Club stop
the bashing .. I congratulated him on phone personally. Want me to print his

Brad Pitt and George

If all you wanted to do
before the apocalypse of 2012 arrived was hang out with a drug ring boss in
Miami while he drawls at David Caruso and his smartass friend makes clever
quips, the place to be is Musee Grevin in Paris, where Brad Pitt and George
