Renowned singer and actor Farhan Saeed has marked his musical return with the release of “Kadi Kadi.” This track takes a departure from his Jal days, embracing a contemporary electro-pop sound, possibly aimed at reconnecting with his now 30-something fanbase.
While Farhan Saeed’s legacy in Pakistani music with Jal remains untarnished, “Kadi Kadi” disappoints. It serves as a reminder that artists who have thrived in the pop-rock genre should not abandon their expertise for the sake of trends. That realm is best left to the Gen Z artists who’ve grown up immersed in it.
The YouTube description paints “Kadi Kadi” as an attempt to capture the timeless beauty of fleeting love moments through a soul-stirring ballad. However, the composition lacks a catchy hook and an alluring melody, making it fade into the backdrop of today’s music scene.
One striking aspect is Farhan Saeed’s strained vocals as he ventures into a higher vocal range, possibly outside his comfort zone. The heavy use of autotune, while common in modern music, feels unnecessary for an artist of his caliber and potentially dilutes the authenticity of the performance.
Musically, “Kadi Kadi” strives to incorporate modern elements while still holding on to its traditional structural roots. This balancing act between modernity and tradition can hinder the song’s overall cohesion. Lyrically, the song primarily revolves around a man’s infatuation with his lover, lacking a deeper exploration of the theme. While simplicity isn’t inherently wrong, it contributes to the sense that the song doesn’t offer anything extraordinary or distinctive.
The music video, featuring Humaima Malick, adds a visual dimension that could enhance the listener’s experience. However, despite its attempt to encapsulate the delicate nuances of love, “Kadi Kadi” falls short of delivering a truly exceptional or groundbreaking musical experience. It lacks the standout elements needed to rise above being just a mediocre addition to today’s music landscape.
