So, the other day I was scourging youtube for something interesting and/or funny/horrific, and I came across the “humsafar’ parody video doing the rounds on facebook. Yeah, i know it’s old news now, partly because i’m really lazy about updating my damn blog and partly, because thanks to facebook it’s so friggin’ hard to be hipster about anything anymore. Pretty much everyone has seen everything and heard everything new before you, because they seem to spend all their time online, being the wave of the future and what not.
Anyway, the parody was worth the few minutes it took to watch it. I won’t say it was mind bogglingly hilarious, (and I have seen stuff on youtube that IS mind bogglingly hilarious, even after repeated viewings, I will be reviewing all those videos too, my pretties, don’t worry!) but there were parts that were funny, some were too contrived, some were downright painful. The saving grace was the acting, which was slightly better than what one usually finds in such videos, and it doesn’t hurt that the writer, director and lead actor is pretty cute, though he incessantly flashes a million bulbs on his face, to appear deathly pale for some reason.
They have a few videos doing the rounds, a maya khan parody – this was funny in parts too. The meera parody is the best of the bunch, I think there was a veena malik parody which I couldn’t sit through entirely, I forget why.
He writes really haunting poetry as well. *giggles* i’m a OB (Osman Khalid Butt) fan girl!
