Elderly Pakistani duo singing ‘Jaane Woh Kaise Log They’ storms Internet

The song was originally sung by Hemant Kumar in the 1957 movie ‘Pyaasa’ directed by Guru Dutt

Chandigarh: Every once in a while, the internet gives us stories and moments that melt our hearts. You know, the ones that either ease your soul or spark happiness within and make your day better, a report in The Tribune, Chandigarh, says.

Like this video, of an old Pakistani duo sitting together and singing Jaane Woh Kaise Log The (from the film Pyaasa), that has been receiving a whole lot of love from people online.

The video was originally shared by filmmaker Mahera Omar and the people in it are her aunt and uncle; Jamshed Omar and Shama Husain.

But, it’s interesting to know that she had uploaded a different video of the two of them singing the song much before this video went viral. In fact, that one had been recorded approximately 8 years back!

And the second, most recent video of the adorable duo has been shared by India Cultural Hub, where many desis have commented and expressed just how lovely their voice is. It’s almost got a healing quality to it.

The original song was sung by Hemant Kumar in the 1957 movie ‘Pyaasa’ directed by Guru Dutt. The lyrics were penned by Sahir Ludhianvi and the music director was SD Burman.

Netizens showered their love for the duo and left sweet comments.

Take a look at all the love both Jamshed Omar and Shama Husain have gotten on this Instagram video.
