“The film has seven songs. Since this is an urban film, the songs have an earthy rustic touch to it. This will appeal more to the listeners. When I heard the script, I could relate easily with it. Hence finding the singers for the songs was not a big deal. The songs in the album are romantic yet peppy and also melodious” said music director Anupam Roy. Silajit, Arijit Singh, Anupam Roy, Tanya Sen, Ujjaini and Prashmita Paul have lent their voices to the songs in the film.
The film Highway is about a couple who despite having a love marriage develop a gap in their relationship. Even after trying for a long time, they fail to bridge this gap. Koel Mullick plays the role of a Bengali girl Sohini Dasgupta while Parambrata plays the role of a non-Bengali guy.
“One of the fondest memories from this film is during the hot sweltering May heat when we shot in Darjeeling for a few days. This was a blessing in disguise for us” said actor Parambrata Chatterjee. The actor had earlier worked with the director many years back when he was nineteen. Parambrata has also shot the promotional music video of the song Protidin for this film.
“Highway has been used as a metaphor. The ups and downs in life and also in the relationships have been highlighted in the film. The film’s USP is the portrayal of real life issue like the tedium in a relationship which has been highlighted with gusto by the director” said actress Koel Mullick.
The film shall be releasing in theaters on 8th of August.
