Sparking a new trend in the Bangla Film Industry, star studded music launches of highly anticipated movies are now being organized in public spaces and in keeping with this trend, the Bengali Audio Songs of New Bangla Movie Jatishwar directed by Srijit Mukherjee took place at EDF grounds in Kolkata.
Jatishwar Bengali Audio Songs release in public not only led to better interactions with the masses but also created a positive vibe revolving around the film. Following this trend, Srikanto Acharya, Rupankar, Monomoy, Sidhu (Cactus band member), Saki, Anupam Roy, Kalika Prasad, Indraadip Dasgupta, Prasenjit Chatterjee, Kabir Suman and Jishu Sengupta were present at the grand music launch of Jatishwar.
Srijit Mukherjee who has been presenting us with one fantastic film after another was excited about his new venture. The director said “The film is a remake of the film Antony Firingi in which Uttam Kumar acted. I have just set the film in 2013 setting. The film is a musical and it has twenty two songs. Many people have been questioning me whether so many songs will be liked by the people. I have one simple answer. The film is a musical and hence songs are of much importance. All the songs have not been used fully. They have been used in parts. Hence it will not be boring for the viewers. This is a special film for all of us”.
Prosenjit Chatterjee, who is playing the role of Anthony in this movie, was all praises for the director. “I have worked with Srijit before and I personally feel this is the best film till date that he has made. The way he had handled everything is praise worthy. Since Jatishwar is a musical film, the singers I feel are the real heroes of this film. Without them, the film would not have been possible”.
Jishu Sengupta who is playing the role of a Gujrati boy named Rohit said yes to do this film simply because of the great script. “I have a friend who is Gujrati and I questioned him about the mannerisms of Gujratis. Their accent is so very different. I had to put in a lot of effort to get it correct. I have two scenes in which I have to speak Gujrati and that was indeed challenging. Rohit is a boy who wants to learn proper Bengali and wants to sing in Bengali. He comes across Anthony and what happens next is what the film will reveal” said Jisshu.
Music being such an important part of the film, the audience at the EDF grounds was treated to a few melodies from the movie by Kabir Suman, Sidhu and Anupam Roy.
