Upcoming Bengali film Bonkubabu’s music launch took place in City Center, Salt Lake in the presence of the cast (Arjun Chakaborty, Arunima Ghosh, Suchandra Vaniya, Saswata Chatterjee, Rupa), director Anindya Bikash Dutta, singers and music director Debojyoti Mishra.
“The movie has six songs and each is of a different genre. Rupam Islam and I have written the lyrics for the songs in the album. Shamik, Shovon, Rupankar Bagchi, Madhura, June, Trijoy, Somchanda, Jinia and Prasenjit have lent their voices to the songs in the film. Tultuli is a fun item song which has been sung by Somchanda and Trijoy. Arunima is seen in this item song. The album has romantic songs, peppy songs- in short it will cater to the ears of all ages of listeners” said music director Debojyoti Mishra.
Bonku babu is a comedy film circling around an honest and obstinate ex-policeman named Bankimchandra Chowdhury who has held the joint family together for many years. Despite being an old man in the seventies, he firmly tackles his family members. It is after a crisis that the character undergoes a change. The rest of the film is about this issue.
Saswata Chatterjee who plays the character of Bonku babu said “Debu da (Debojyoti Mishra) is one of my favorite music directors. He knows the nerve of the audience. He kept in mind the target audience and composed the songs in the film”.
Director Anindya Bikash Dutta said “Bonku babu is a larger than life character. So the music of the film has also to be special like the film. In this case Debojyoti Mishra has done full justice with the music in the film. The film would not have been possible without such great music”.
Rupankar, Somchanda and Trijoy performed the songs that they have sung in the film in front of the audience. The cheers and claps from the audience is proof of the appreciation that the people have showered on this film.
Bonku babu is expected to release June end.
