Coke Studio season 14 is surprising us with some bangers, and we can’t help but want more and more of it. Each song is better than the other and we just groove to it, trying not to forget the last song. When Coke Studio announced Xulfi was to be the producer for season 14, we knew it would be great, but we did not know that it could be something like this. The 10th song of the season is Beparwah by Momina Mustehsan, and there are so many reasons we love it.
This year Coke studio was different because we saw a change in the sets used for individual songs. Unlike every year, where the singers would stand and sing the songs–the singers this year roam around the set. And the set is also very different. The colors, vibe, and art direction of the set are magical, and if anyone wants any proof of that–they are more than welcome to watch Pasoori.
The art direction on the set is just too on point, but now, with the release of the new song – Beparwah, we can’t help but be a little confused about which art direction was better. We especially love the unspoken thoughts that are being put into the songs.
Beparwah is a song that highlights the desperateness of a person when they fall in love with someone. The urge to want to be with someone, no matter what! leaves us wanting to do things we thought we would never do. This is just the power of love–the need to be insane, to reach a height of madness that one thought was never possible, and yet still it is all justifiable with love because they say–everything is fair in love and war.
Momina’s voice is melodious as ever, and the way she delivers the verses leaves us hanging onto each of her words, trying to grasp the meaning before she moves on to the next word. Her delivery and expressions take us back to the moments in our lives when we too were in love and were on our knees hoping that someone, against all odds, works out in the end.
And with that–the set takes us to the wilderness, to the home of the mad person, where he walks and walks hoping to find answers to all his problems. There is also a chorus in the background on the set, which could also be interpreted as the voices of the birds. We can’t really understand what birds say, but with love–we all can understand that language.
While the song is slow, and somewhat sat–it is a message to everyone out there that no matter what, there are others out there who go through the same things that we do. Kudos to Coke Studio for giving us yet another banger.
