Soorma’s Pardesiya is a bittersweet melody
By Oojal Kour Dhanjal - July 9, 2018
The latest music video from the Soorma OST shows Sandeep Singh’s struggles in love and life.
When the news comes out that Sandeep Singh (Diljit Dosanjh) got shot, Preet (Taapsee Pannu) breaks down, in despair. While they are abroad for his surgery, she does not come close to him, and loves him from afar, helps him get back on track, but at an expense. A story of how lovers become strangers, this is what Pardesiya is all about.
A soulful semi-classical beauty sung by Shankar Mahadevan, Ehsaan Noorani, Shehnaz Akhtar and Hemant Brijwasi, Pardesiya is a song of longing tinged by melancholy, that’s underlined with the correct use of instruments.
This beautiful melody signifies the loss of familiarity and change in the relationship between two people in love. It is a story of struggle, love, pain, a song that portrays how hard it is to achieve success and the story behind, which consists of failures and unsuccessful attempts, hopelessness. Preet helps him battle his worst nightmares, but somehow she becomes a stranger at a time when he needs her the most.
Everything about this song is bittersweet. While all the other songs speak about motivation, first love, festivals, this is a different approach to the film, which makes it more realistic and relatable. Welcome the new addition to your emo playlist.
