They made a statue of us
And it put it on a mountain top
Now tourists come and stare at us
Blow bubbles with their gum
Take photographs have fun, have fun

The song and songstress consume your attention bit by bit, as if to reflect the origin of the tune ‘Pritam’ in deserts of Rajasthan, drawing images of of the endless sand dunes on a cool summer night. With each ‘bol’ or word, Sanam reveals a new layer to the beloved’s longing, who tries to draw her lover back into their once-shared reality. The song’s words are earthy in its tone while Sanam Marvi’s delivery is smooth yet authentic. There is much to be said about a heart-felt rendition. There are times when performances of established musicians like Abida Parveen come off as robotic rather then real.
Verdict: “Pritam’ has potential as an addition to my iPod playlist, however this is not the case of ‘love at first listen’. That was Arif Lohar and Meesha Shafi’s spectacular collaboration known as ‘Alif Allah’; which we lovingly refer to as ‘Jugni ji’.
