KARACHI: With the year coming to an end, Pakistani films are creating quite the hype. Rangreza and Arth 2 did not receive a lot of love from audiences, however, their music surely did. With Asrar, Abida Parveen and Rahat Fateh Ali Khan on the vocals, the songs were mesmerising.

Keeping up to the mark, we were hoping that the upcoming Ahsan Khan and Neelum Muneer starrer, Chupan Chupai would give some good music as well, but we aren’t very impressed.

Their latest song Befikray reminds us a lot of Badmaash Company’s Ayaashi. Firstly –  the cast, Befikray shows one girl and three guys which resembles Ayaashi quite a lot. The title doesn’t seem very creative either. Ayaashi starts with the word ‘beparwa’ translates to careless, which roughly means to be ‘befikray’ as well – making us think if the song writers just used a thesaurus to create this song.

Other similarities show the cast in both the songs enjoying the city. From car rides to the romance between Shahid Kapoor and Anushka Sharma in the original, Befikray tends to follow the same steps.

The only difference between both the songs would be that Ayaashi shows a bit of glamour whereas Befikray depicts more of on-the-road fun.

This is not the only song video that seems to reflect Bollywood. Their last song, Sadqa also gave some major Zaalima vibes as Neelum Muneer was seen donning a black dress, much like Mahira Khan. The uncanny resemblance in both the locations used for the song – the desert and the beach front – sparks a concern as well.
