The teasers and trailer of Zee5’s upcoming Pakistani series Qatil Haseenaon Ke Naam has made everyone excited in anticipation as the content is out-of-the-box and very daring. While Curiosity was slowly building around its background score, Zee5 has kept details under wrap about it and released the original soundtrack of the show, based on the same title.

Composed by ace musician Ali Sethi, sung by Farheen Raza Jaffry, and penned by Farjad Nabi, the song takes viewers into the dark and gritty world of suspense and thrill. The music feels like a jazz number with a sensuous vibe.

Talking about the OST, creator and director of the show, Meenu Gaur said: “The song encapsulates the essence of this show and is the best possible invitation to it. It embodies a playful yet empowered feminine voice that I had wanted for the theme song. The mix of desi and western, contemporary, and vintage is simply brilliant. Kudos to the team behind it.”

“I loved working on this song — it allowed me to explore an old-fashioned cabaret vibe, the sort of smouldering item numbers that were all the rage in 1970s masala flicks. I’m so glad we got to showcase Farheen’s extraordinary voice too, along with Anthony Soshil’s vintage jazzy arrangement. The song is new-old, tender-harsh. I hope audiences like it as much as I do.” said Ali Sethi.

“While writing the lyrics I wanted to translate the inner voices of the Qatil Haseenas with verses that beguile, bewitch and burn. Ali Sethi has rendered them perfectly because of his rare power to inhabit several emotions simultaneously. I’d say it is the first desi noir song of its kind, echoing the vision of the series fully,” shared Farjad Nabi, who has written the lyrics of the song.

Qatil Haseenaon Ke Naam is a compilation of seven stories of seven women who wrest back control and redefine the word femme fatale. Written by Farjad Nabi and Meenu Gaur, the series showcases stories of love, lust, power, and redemption woven in a web of betrayal, angst, and revenge. Each story from the anthology depicts the fearlessness of women and their determination to avenge deceit. At the core of the stories are a mystery, suspense, intrigue with twist endings.
