Wasu and I
The tomb of Quaid-e-Azam is a symbolic landmark of Karachi.
Here every year, our nation's rulers uphold a historical tradition by
renewing their vows to the father of the nation
and covering his grave with flowers.
Whenever I hear these words, I feel like our rulers are not covering Quaid-e-Azam's grave
but are rather covering his dreams.
And in 64 years, they've covered it with so many flowers that his dreams and hopes have been buried.
Now I fear that the generations to come might forget Quaid-e-Azam's dream entirely
and that they too will be hearing these familiar lines in the 9 o'clock news:
"Pakistan is passing through troubling times in its history"
[Shehzad's video 'Laga Reh']
And then one day, I heard the lines about covering a grave with flowers, somewhere else
and I realized I was not alone in thinking this way.
Listen to my song, it is my duty to sing it
Quaid-e-Azam came and drove the English away
He created Pakistan and ran it for 13 months.
He came to Ziarat (Baluchistan) for a visit and death beckoned to him.
Life is temporary and he lost his life.
He was buried in Karachi.
The whole world came for his burial and covered his grave with flowers.
This video was so surprising that in a place which probably didn't even get electricity,
someone recorded this man's song on his phone and even uploaded it onto YouTube.
And many people saw it
one of whom, was my mother-in-law.
Maybe only the internet can bridge the gap between the rich and the poor.
Who was this man?
Political worker? Journalist? Or maybe a school teacher?
Because in 4.5 minutes, he explained Pakistan's 60-year old history with such ease which
I had been unable to understand, even after memorizing the Pakistan Studies textbook in school for 3 years.
100,000 people had seen him on YouTube
Now the question is- how do I take that number to a crore (10 million)?
I know 2 things- he is from Jafrabad and his name is Wasu.
Yeah Roy?
Janan, its Shehzad! How're you?
How're you? Doing fine?
Fine, are you busy right now?
No, what's up?
I am looking for a man. I know he lives in Jafrabad and his name is Wasu.
So how should we find him? What should be done?
I have a friend named Hamal. You've met him...
Hamal? Ok...
0300...
So before going, get in touch with me. I'll send you guards and arrange the transport....
Ok sure. Thank you. Ok, Khudahafiz, bye.
Hamal [dialing]...
Hello assalam-o-alaikum umm...
Ok thank you..
Oh sorry, I dialed the wrong number...
No I don't want a house nor an apartment. Ok thank you. Khudahafiz.
[religious song playing]
[Bollywood song playing]
The world has made so much progress- now a man's ringtone can tell you so much about his personality.
After much searching, I got Hashim Baluch's number
and coincidentally he was the same man who had recorded Wasu and uploaded the video on YouTube.
While talking to him, I felt that I had come very close to finding Wasu
SP (Superintendent Police) Jafrabad
I'll just call him, thank you.
Hello? Assalam-o-alaikum can I speak with the SP? This is Shehzad Roy from Karachi.
Yes, yes, how are you?
At long last, I found Wasu!
The SP told me that Wasu was his employee
Arif (manager): Hello
Arif? Shehzad here. Book a flight for Jafrabad right now.
Ok let me find out...
Travel agent: Hello
Yes hello this is Arif. I need to book a flight for Shehzad bhai to Jafrabad...
Islamabad?
No! Jafrabad.
Jafrabad...boss there is no direct flight to Jafrabad.
You can book one either to Sukhur or Quetta.
So then make a booking for both Quetta and Sukhur
Ok fine...
Are you Shehzad Roy?
Yes. How are you?
Walaikum asslam
And how are you?
Absolutely fine.
Why is this camera on?
Um we are shooting a documentary, that's why its on.
So have you stopped singing?
Umm no I'm still singing but I'm also shooting a documentary. It will come on TV.
So can I say hello to my friend?
Yes say it...
Hello Asad! Hello!
Sir what does your song 'Laga Reh' mean?
Umm buddy, if you dont mind, can I sleep for a little while?
Sure
Does 'Laga Reh' mean the same thing that your song 'Qismat Apne Haath Mein' meant?
Neither song has no meaning. You go home and hear the song again and you'll understand. Ok?
Ok but do you have the song on your cell phone?
No its not in my cell phone.
It's in my cell phone. Should I play it?
There are other people right now- give me your email address. I'll email you the explanation ok?
Forget email. Add me on facebook!
...so what is your opinion on the matter?
My opinion is that an artist is public property. And kids in Pakistan love to destroy public property.
People who dislike my music shouldn't get happy
because I've neither been kidnapped nor has a fatwa been passed against me!
Actually, my friend Janan was scared that I am going to a dangerous area
so he sent an army of guards.
And now I am trying to save myself from their guns!
Keep this gun a little away from me...
Sir, the gun is locked.
I'm sure its locked but if it accidentally fires, it will create problems...
Sir if it still fires, then it was in your destiny.
Have you come to protect me or kill me?
Here in Baluchistan you have such big guns and
even the number plate of this car seems fake so..
doesn't anyone stop you guys here?
Sir if you have 2 things in Baluchistan then no one stops you:
first a big beard and second a big car!
Forget stopping us, the policemen here were even saluting us!
Sir do you see that mountain over there?
Yesterday, [censored] tribe killed 10 men over there.
And over here [censored] tribe killed [censored] men
Have men really been killed here or are you securing your job by creating fear?
Sir, you get off here for an hour and tomorrow the headlines will read: 'He was a good actor'
I am not an actor, I am a singer!
On the way, I got news from the SP that Wasu was at the roadside cafe in front of the police station
so I told the driver to hurry!
Call that man over there
Assalam-o-alaikum how are you? Doing well?
There is a man named Wasu Khan here. Can you call him?
Wasu? Is he in trouble?
No no! He's not in trouble. My name is Shehzad Roy.
I sing. You might have seen my music video on TV. Have you?
Have you heard my name- Shehzad?
Lyrics: Saali didn't recognize me. Someday she will know me...
Uhh tell Wasu he had made a political video.
Tell him we will give him money, umm tell him about an award. Tell him we will give him an award...
Man: Oh so he's won an award. Ok let me get him... Shehzad: Tell him quickly
Man: Ok let me look for him. Shehzad: Thank you very much.
Where's the bathroom?
Let me go look for a second. No, no you guys keep sitting...
The journey was quite long. I thought before meeting Wasu, I could freshen up
but in trying to find the bathroom, I saw Wasu!
I couldn't believe my eyes! The man whom I was expecting to be all sorts of things was
not even a constable, let alone an inspector!
Assalam-o-alaikum, is your name Wasu? Wasu: Yes.
My name is Shehzad Roy. Have you seen me before?
Wasu: Yes, I've seen you before. Shehzad: Where have you seen me?
I can't remember!
I've come a long way to meet you so when you're done making roti (bread) come outside. I'm waiting for you.
Wasu: Absolutely. Shehzad: I've come from far! Wasu: Absolutely.
Waja, these cameras are recording, should I speak in front of them?
Don't worry about these cameras. They will stay on. You can speak.
Waja you brought these guards with you, I got scared.
I thought to myself- he won't make us 'mishun' will he?
Shehzad: What's 'mishun'? Wasu: 'Mishun' is you know...
Wasu:...people are kidnapped and are taken away. Shehzad: MISSING person?
Wasu: Yes! Shehzad: You call that a MISSING person. Wasu: Yes missing person.
Shehzad: I actually sing political songs like you. I will show you when you come with me. Wasu: Yes
When you made that song- I have seen it on a computer.
I thought you and I...I will take you to Karachi and together we will make a song.
Will you come to Karachi with me?
Wasu: Yes absolutely I will come... Shehzad: No no...
Wasu: I am ready! Shehzad: I'm not saying right now. I'm saying go home, get ready, tell your relatives, pack your clothes & then we'll go.
Wasu: Waja will we go in a plane? Shehzad: Yes we will go in a plane.
Wasu: Waja I am poor. I cannot afford a plane ticket. Shehzad: You don't have to worry about anything
Ticket, food, all these things we will arrange...you don't worry.
Waja you had mentioned an award earlier?
Shehzad: You will get an award, money, everything... Wasu: Ok
Wasu: Here maam! Flight attendant: Yes?
I am a Baluch. We wear Shalwar Kameez not belts...
Flight attendant:Your belt is on the side sir. Wasu: No no belt. I am a Baluch. Waja us Baluch don't-
Flight attendant: You tie a belt this way- Shehzad: Tie this...I'll do it. I'll do it.
Wasu: So ma'am, are you with the plane?
Wasu: What will you serve us on the way ? Flight attendant: I'll serve you many things.
Wasu: Oh really? Flight attendant: For now, pay attention to the safety procedures.
Flight attendant: Yes? Wasu: [nervous laughter] ok.
Is there a bathroom?
When you get up from here and go back, the bathroom will come on your left.
On the left?.... Waja I am stuck.
It's a big plane...look at God's grandeur!
[Wasu singing his song]
What happened? What were you looking for in the back?
Flight attendant: You couldn't find your seat? Wasu: Yes I couldn't find my seat.
Flight attendant: This is your seat. Wasu: Yeah ok ma'am.
I think he was looking for something in the back...
[Wasu speaking in Baluchi]
Shehzad: Speak in Urdu. Wasu: Urdu, Baluchi should be spoken together.
Shehzad: Okay. Wasu: Yes of course. I should speak my own language as well. Shehzad: Absolutely fine.
On phone: Uhh I don't know details- should we make the song together or not? Let's do whatever is economical.
Waja what is that ahead?
This is a bridge. There is a bridge with another bridge passing over it.
Wasu: Stop the car! Stop the car! Shehzad: Why?
Wasu: I will not go on that bridge. I will go by foot. Shehzad: Why?
Wasu: No Waja. Shehzad: What's happened Wasu?
There are 2 bridges! 1 bridge is still ok but 2 bridges....
Stop! Stop! These bridges fall. People have died in the past. Waja I will walk...
Shehzad: Why Wasu? Wasu: I will walk...
Shehzad: What happened? Wasu: I will walk Waja...
I will walk... I will not get on top of that!
Hearing Wasu talk, I realized that us city dwellers are so quick to forget dangerous accidents that occurred.
Wasu! Wait just listen to me! I'm saying we won't go on the bridge, we'll go from underneath. Come sit.
This bridge is made from solid stone- can you see it? The English have built it, not the Pakistanis.
The English made it in 1800 something....or in 1900 when Pakistan was not made.
Wasu: Waja then take me for a drive on it. I will go on it. Shehzad: Wasu, can you see how...
Like every patriotic Pakistani, Wasu also speaks against the West. Yet he trusts their buildings more than local ones.
Kamran and Imran!
Waja turn the light on. It's dark, I can't see anything!
No Wasu, the ambiance in the studio is like this!
Turn on the light! So I can see people, so I can sit with these friends...
Ok 1 second, I'll turn it on I'll turn it on.
Now can you see?
This is Kamran, our sound engineer! I've been telling you about Wasu
Shehzad: This is Imran Akhoond, he is a terrific guitarist. Wasu: How are you?
Wasu: You play the guitar? Imran: Yeah for now, I'm playing the guitar...
Wasu have you ever seen a studio before? Have you had the chance to go to a PTV studio etc.?
Wasu: I haven't seen one like this before. Shehzad: Really?
Over here, I can see a glimpse of God!
Lights are turned on remotely, machines are run remotely, instruments are played remotely.
Yes, I can see God in this studio!
So what we're going to do right now...
you guys have seen the video on YouTube. I've been discussing it with Karman.
The song that you have made, we are trying to record it
so we can make something out of it. We'll make a tune
Which part will I sing, which part will you sing.
You have already sang your part: 'Quaid-e-Azam came and drove the English away...'
Tell me how you made that song- did you make a tune first? What did you do?
I didn't make a tune...I see it in a dream at night and I recite it in the morning.
Shehzad: ok [laughs] Wasu: It comes to me in a dream...
Whatever I think I should make a song on, I see it in a dream at night and in the morning I sing it.
Ok this...Kamran I want you to hear this in person because you have only heard it on YouTube. Imran
Can you verbally recite the Quaid-e-Azam lyrics: 'Quaid-e-Azam came and drove the English away'...like that.
No no I will sing the song 'Biya Biya bai dil bar'- it's nice.
What do you see in the 'Quaid-e-Azam' song?
In 'Quaid-e-Azam' you have narrated the entire history of Pakistan.
Yes I have but ' Biya Biya bai dil bar' is a Baluchi song. The whole world should hear it.
Shehzad: No but- Wasu: It's a nice song.
No that's fine but, I was hoping- when I first saw you it was in the 'Quaid-e-Azam' song.
So if we hear it one time, we'll have an idea of what to make.
Wasu: No no! Biya biya bai dil bar. Its Baluchi and... Shehzad: Ok fine, let's hear it!
[Wasu singing Baluchi song]
Very nice! Now that one, the 'Quaid-e-Azam' one...
'Quaid-e-Azam came and drove the English away...'
Wasu sings in a monotone: Quaid-e-Azam came and drove the English away
He created Pakistan and ran it for 13 months
Wasu continues in monotone: ...covered his grave with flowers. His photograph appeared in our currency.
He drove the English away.
Iskander Mirza came-
[cursing]
On YouTube you sang this very differently.
Recite it that way, just verbally [without a melody]: 'Quaid-e-Azam came and drove the English away. Pakistan...'
Wasu: Yes yes only verbally... Kamran: We want to make a new song.
Quaid-e-Azam came and drove the English away.
He made Pakistan and ran it for 13 months.
He came to Ziarat for a visit and death beckoned to him.
Life is temporary and he lost his life.
He was a true Pakistani. He was buried in Karachi
The whole world came for his burial and covered his grave with flowers.
His photograph appeared on our currency. He drove the English away!
Shehzad: Perfect! Now a beat- Kamran: There is a problem in the tempo
Shehzad: Uhh once... Kamran: Let's play a beat, so he can get some tempo.
Shehzad: Ok you- Imran: You have to say it like you just did.
You have to say it like you just did.
Ok you'll go inside right now. Kamran and I will make a beat.
and we'll see. You have to sing in beat. Ok? Wasu: Ok.
The headphones over there, wear them. Yes.
Why is this upside down? Waja this is upside down, that's why-
It is not upside down. This is a studio mic. This is how they're fixed.
Right, right
Wasu tries singing in beat: Quaid-e-Azam came and drove the English away.
He created Pakistan and ran it for 13 months.
He came to Ziarat for a visit and death beckoned to him.
Life is temporary and he lost his life.
He was a true Pakistani. He was buried in Karachi.
The whole world came for his burial and covered his grave with flowers-
Kamran: Let's make him hear a reference. Shehzad: Yeah play this type of a song so he has an idea of how such songs are sung.
I was thinking Kamran, we can make him listen to a rap song.
We will make you listen to a foreign song which will not have a melody, only words.
But the words will be in beat. So you will have an idea- so when you say...
'Quaid-e-Azam came and drove the English away. He created Pakistan and ran it for 13 months.'
Kamran: Everything with be in time. Shehzad: Everything will be in time.
Let's hear something.
[Wasu tries to sing in beat]
I can't do this!
After some time, Wasu finally liked a song, which even mentioned our nation's rulers!
Are you getting how he's singing this?
I think he's got it.
Waja this song has been made by a Baluch brother. Put this song in my phone.
Shehzad: He'll put it in your phone. Why do you want it- as a ringtone? Wasu: Yes of course!
What do you mean? When you get a call, you want this song to play?!? Wasu: Yes of course.
God keep you happy...
When Zulfiqar Bhutto came into power, he instated such a system that first he had the prisoners freed.
Then he divided the land holdings and distributed it amongst the farmers and laborers.
Kamran: Look straight into the mic....yes good!
He defeated Shastri and sent him running
Taught him a lesson and gave him a befitting reply.
He made a canal. He couldn't run the country either!
Waja what is this? I can hear something inside.
Wasu: What is this smell coming from it? Shehzad: I don't know.
Wasu: Waja you don't know? Imran: Don't know.
What is this? There is an apple inside.
Kamran: Apple? Oh this, yeah this is apple. Wasu: Oh?
Kamran: Apple is the name of the company. Wasu: Oh!
Quaid-e-Azam came and drove the English away...
He created Pakistan and ran it for 13 months.
He came to Ziarat for a visit and death beckoned to him.
What is this?
...he lost his life. He was a true...
Is there electricity inside this?
The whole world came for his burial and covered his grave with flowers.
His photograph appeared on our currency.
He drove the English away
[Wasu trying to lip sync in video shoot]
Today was very important for me.
The music video was risky. So I had an exclusive screening
for those people whose opinion was important for me.
I have invited you here so you can give me your point of view.
And Wasu will also see this video for the first time.
And I would like that after seeing this video, you give me a critical review. Whatever you think. Let's see the video...

Angelina Jolie came (to Pakistan) and everyone understood that.
Thank you so much. I hope you thought the video was interesting. And now..
Whose basic idea all of this was, Wasu, and whom I saw on YouTube
as a result of which we were able to do all this.
I would like to invite Wasu up here so he can tell us what his thoughts are on this video.
I am standing in front of you today because of Shehzad bhai.
Shehzad bhai said let's get together and make a nice song on Pakistan.
You all have worked very hard, you have made a full film.
The song turned out well, people even enjoyed it.
But I did not like it!
Because people will hear it and lose hope.
From 1947 to 2011, there is only darkness here...
There is no light (hope).
People will think that everything is bad in Pakistan.
I want to thank all of you. I beg your forgiveness. Khudahafiz!
Umm... Wasu was already nervous before talking here...
Umm I think he was overwhelmed. For the first time I...I shouldn't have forced him to talk here.
Umm...turn it off for a second..
