After almost two years of silence, famous melodious-voiced Sajad Ali has made his comeback with ‘Na Tum Samjhe’ which is based on the work of poet Saba Akbar Abadi and is a delicate, melodic, pensive tune.
The song begins with Sajad’s heart-touching voice as he sings: Hamaray aur tumharay raastey me eik naya pan tha, naya pan tha Magar dunya puraani hai, na tum samjeh, na hum samjhe.
Ye eik esi kahani hai, na tum samjhe, na hum samjhe Jawaani, zindegaani hai na tum samjhe na hum samjhe. Ye eik esi kahani hai, na tum samjhe, na hum samjhe”
Although the lyrics suggest unreciprocated love between two lovers, the video depicts four different aspects: a singer, a theatre artist, a corporate worker and a student.
Singing the song, Sajad himself acts like an omniscient spectator as others play their roles with the singer striving to get rid his hesitation, the artist attempting to perfect his delivery, the corporate worker getting worked up and the student struggling to get his attention onto his studies.
