Maula Ve Shehzad Roy lyrics
Doobay hain sitaray
Ashk dhalay na dhalay
Diya jo jalaya
larzay hai saya
raat dhalay na dhalay
haan meri zindagi to yeh nahe hai
jo tujhse juda kardey
mein tere naal reh na haan reh na
mein rab nu gawah karke
Maula Vey Shehzad Roy music video review
The song video, which is set in a hospital, has the Mera Naseeb actor and Mukhra crooner as healthcare personnel separated in separate rooms. The song takes you on a trip as they seek solace in one another while separating themselves from the outside world and battling their illness.
The melody takes you on a journey through their ups and downs, illustrating the challenges of an unorthodox form of shared love until one of them loses the battle and leaves the other to carry on. Many frontline employees had little choice but to distance themselves from their family and loved ones when the pandemic was at its apex. Some of them never made it back.
Maula Vey is a lovely attempt to depict the doubt and longing that people feel when they are alone, especially those whose heroic efforts are often unseen. Roy himself could not have been a better person to recognize and convey this terrible tale of heroes. Maula Vey is a unique production in the love genre, directed by Ahsan Rahim and composed by Shany Haider.
