Jal’s former front man, Farhan Saeed, has released a song that pays tribute to the army’s ongoing efforts to fight terrorists in the ongoing Zarb-e-Azb operation.

The song is a joint effort between Farhan and the Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR).

Earlier, ISPR had also released a touching tribute to the children who were killed in the devastating Peshawar attack.

Tou Thori Deir’s video features Farhan as an army officer who is wrenched away from the arms of his wife, played by rumored real-life love interest Urwa Hocane, to serve the country.

The video shows Farhan reminiscing about the love of his life while he is away at war and shows how he is asked to leave for the operation on the night of his wedding.

“We all need you. But the nation needs you more,” says Farhan’s mother in the video, as she interrupts his wedding night.

Though the video is a little dramatic, it highlights the daily struggles of army personnel who leave their loved ones behind to serve their country.

The video is reminiscent of Jawad Ahmed’s Dosti which was also a tribute to the Pakistan Army.

It is also reminiscent of Shubha Mudgal’s Rangeelo Maro Dholna, whose video shows Malaika Arora celebrating her husband Arbaaz Khan’s return from a war.

    A well-conceived and we well produced music video… The melody is soft and soothing plus it is a great way to pay tribute to the fighting forces and their families who, without fear, stand up to the terrorists who attack their homeland every day!

    Since 1965 till 2015, fifty years in between and we are glamorizing one institution. And how long will it continue…..nobody has answer. Its high time for the people at helm to recognize the efforts, contributions, and sacrifices of people from other side of Military Pakistan.Recommend

    Out tax money being put into good use!! It seems that the army after making it’s mark in the real estate business has decided to foray and invest our money in media and advertising.Recommend

    If this song can keep the soldiers motivated to fight against the neanderthals who we call terrorists, then I say they should make 100 of these! The people who rue the fact that we have been glamorizing army for decades, do not forget that they are the ones who are fighting in FATA to clear the mess. If you say that it is their responsibility to do so, then I ask of you: do you put your life at risk as these people do ? Do you ? No ? I guessed. So the point is that we are living in a time when the genie of terrorism has been eating us away, and to get that genie in the bottle, I am all for ANYTHING that can keep the soldiers motivated, and so should every Pakistani be.Recommend
