'O Dilbar Yaara' review: Shaheer Sheikh's track is heartbreaking
NAV Records has released a new single on its official YouTube Channel. Titled O Dilbar Yaara, the track features Shaheer Sheikh and Shivangi Joshi as the lead actors. The video's strong narrative has the power to make you emotional and sympathize with Sheikh's character. Also, the sad tune is based on the lines of heartbreak and betrayal. Here's our review.
Stebin Ben's voice, background commentary blend well
Composed by Harish Sagne, the song has an emotional appeal. Stebin Ben has brought a real essence of heartbreak with his voice in the track. His style resembles that of Atif Aslam a lot. Meer, who wrote the lyrics, has beautifully described the feelings of a person who goes through heartbreak. The narration in the background gives you more clarity to the story.
The visuals have powerful narrative with convincing performance by Sheikh
The 4:44-minute-long video begins with Sheikh (Anshumann) and Joshi's (Ananya) upcoming wedding celebrations. In the next frame, Anshumann discovers a heartbreaking secret about Ananya. How the truth devastates him on the day of his marriage forms the crux of the story, However, while watching the song you would smile and become sad by Sheikh's strong happy and sad emotions.
Sheikh's choice of songs has become popular among the audience
Sheikh has been picking up strong roles in his shows as well as music videos. His last video with Hina Khan, Mohabbat Hai, became an instant hit on YouTube garnering 31 million views so far. The Mohit Suri directorial song is about an incomplete journey of lovers across three generations. Similarly, his Baarish Ban Jaana with Khan and Ben earned over 403 million views.
