Sagar

By karuna

This is a music video I directed and produced for a Pakistani rock star by the name of Salman Ahmad, co-founder and lead guitarist of the band Junoon -- pretty much the biggest rock band in South Asia. The song, "Sagar", is off his solo album "Infiniti." Sagar is the Urdu word for Ocean. The song is in Urdu, and I do have a cut of the video with English subtitles, which you can find at the following link:

(For the sake of mixing, I've left the titles out of this version and will add them back in later.)

Basically, I'm looking some other images to add into the video. Because we had a limited amount of time with artists and we were fighting the elements, we did get as much coverage as we would've liked. If any of you have some ideas on what could liven up the video, especially toward the beginning when the cuts are slower, I'd love to see them. I've inserted the lyrics below as well so you can get a sense of the meaning and theme of the piece.

And here are some links to visit if you want to know more about Salman or Junoon:

SAGAR Lyrics

VERSE 1
honton ki nao sey kaho (speak to the boat/canoe shape of your lips)
sanson ki nadiya mein baho (to keep flowing in the stream of your breath)
maujon mein aisey tum raho (be in harmony with the waves)
key sagar hi manzil ho (so that the Ocean is your only destination)
key sagar hi manzil ho (so that the Ocean is your only destination)

VERSE 2
tsunami ki lehron mein (swept up in the tsunami of life)
toofani hawaon mein (caught in a crossfire of the storm winds)
soeey aabsharon mein (surrounded by sleeping waterfalls)
tsunami ki lehron mein (swept up in the tsunami of life)
merey jeevan ka sahil tum ho (you’re my life's shore)

VERSE 3
aag kay darya mein (in a river of fire)
duniya kay dozah mein (within the hell on earth)
talaash-e-jannat hai (there’s a search for paradise)
aag kay darya mein (in a river of fire)
mera rozay mehshar tum ho (you are my day of reckoning)

VERSE 4
tsunami ki lehron mein (swept up in the tsunami of life)
aag kay darya mein (in a river of fire)
toofani hawaon mein (caught in a crossfire of the storm winds)
talaash-e-jannat hai (there’s a search for paradise)
merey jeevan ka sahil tum ho (you’re my life's shore)
