The Pakistani Inspiration Behind the Indian Song, “Munni Badnaam Hui”

23 May

Did you think Munni Badnaam Hui was brilliant? Well Umar Sharif thought of it before Bollywood it! Recently a friend introduced me to this 1992 video from the Umar Sharif that shows him doing a qawwali where there is no Munni but  there is a larka who is in the process of becoming badnaam for a haseena akin to israel – hear the song and figure it out! Pay attention to the lyrics – they are quite spectacular!
