    What is your opinion on Avestan and Pahlavi?
    There is nothing in the Gathas (songs) that is geographically from modern w-Iran. I'm not sure if even the concept of poet kings - Kavis - ever existed there.

    Parthian was just a localized language of north-western iran. Orginating in todays Turkmenistan. I think it's hardly influential, if it had not been for the success of the parni tribes with filling the power vacuum left by the seleucids. Probably was more like an elite language than an actual influential language in the Iranian plateau. There were several north-west Iranian languages in the zagros range, before the modern ethnogenesis.

    They are singing an old folk balochi song. The lyrics is basically the man declaring his love for her, how she looks and what he can do for her and other stuff.

    The bollywood version is uber commercialized lolz with totally different lyrics.

    Hey so is the Balochi version the original song? I thought they were remaking the Baby Doll song in Balochi traditional instrumentation. I think I actually hear the words "Baby Doll" when these guys sing it. By the way, there is no reason to think that the people making traditional folk music are not doing improvisations and looking to remake pop tunes with desi sounds. Those are also living and organic musical lines and they are not stuck in time unlike the general impression.
