I don’t like Western movies but recently I re-watched iconic The Dollars Trilogy to relive the charisma of spaghetti western movies. The Dollars Trilogy also known as the ‘Man with No Name Trilogy’ is a film series consisting of three Spaghetti Western films directed by Sergio Leone. He is known for his extreme close-up shots with lengthy long shots. The films are titled as A Fistful of Dollars (1964), For a Few Dollars More (1965) and The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (1966). These are the iconic Western movies by a legendary Italian director Sergio Leone who introduced a new hero with no name played by Clint Eastwood.
Last Sunday on 6th Dec. I was invited to the ‘Sabri Night’ at Port Grand. I was so excited to see Amjad Sabri performing live for the first time. After a very long time I am attending any concert. The event started at 9pm. They’ve capacity of 3500 people and 1500 tickets were already sold out. Rest of them has been sold out at the gate.
Amjad Sabri needs no introduction. He is a son of Ghulam Farid Sabri who was a leading member of the Sabri Brothers a leading qawwali group. The greatest ever qawwal lived on the subcontinent soil.
The stage was set, all the seats were filled and the crowd was ready for his performance. Amjad Sabri starts with Khwaja Ki Deewani and the whole crowd was lost in his performance. Later on he performed Tumhe dillagi bhool jani padegi with some new lines, sitting area is now flooded with people. Amjad Sabri knows how to move the crowd that’s why he performed very famous Sabri Brother qawwali Tajdar-e-Haram and Bhar Do Jholi Meri Ya Mohammad in the end.
