Upcoming Bengali film Uma’s first song “Hariye Jawar Gaan” was recently released. The film is inspired from the true story of Evan Leversage, the Canadian boy suffering from cancer and for whom his village of St. George, Ontario came together to celebrate Christmas much ahead of the actual festival.
Hariye Jawar Gaan shows the lead actor, Jisshu U Sengupta contemplating amidst the greens of Switzerland and slowly the song progresses with the subtle storyline of Himadri (Jisshu U Sengupta) and Menoka (Sayantika Banerjee), the parents of 8 year old terminally ill Uma (Sara Sengupta). Like a flashback, the songs takes the audience through the journey of them falling in love, getting married, drifting apart due to various reasons, giving birth to Uma and finally, Menoka choosing to walk out of her marriage. Simultaneously, another woman (Srabanti) pretends to be Uma’s mother during her blissful moments of enjoying the auspicious Durga Puja celebrations early in April.
Anupam Roy is the music director of the film and also, the lyricist and singer of this soulful song. There are 5 other songs that will be released soon by SVF.
Uma, directed by National Award winning director Srijit Mukherji and starring father daughter duo Jisshu U Sengupta and Sara Sengupta, has already been recognised by New York Indian Film Festival (NYIFF) 2018, London Indian Film Festival (LIFF) 2018, India Film Festival of Alberta (IFFA) 2018, Indian Film Festival of Melbourne (IFFM) 2018, Reelworld Film Festival Toronto 2018 and Habitat Film Festival New Delhi 2018.
