Uma, directed by Srijit Mukherji is one of the most anticipated Bengali films this year. Uma’s most awaited song ‘Jaago Uma’ was released in the presence of Rupankar Bagchi, Anupam Roy, Srijit Mukherji, Sayantika Banerjee, Srabanti, Anirban Bhattacharya, Somlata Acharyya, Neel Dutt, Surangana Bandopadhyay, Ujjaini Mukherjee, Sidhu, Pota among others. Durgabari at Ballygunge, Kolkata was decorated with the theme of Durga Puja for the occasion.
Jaago Uma is a mesmerising number which has been sung by Rupankar Bagchi. This song is an amalgamation of the previous 3 songs released by SVF, which portray the lives of the main characters which includes Himadri and his estranged wife, Menoka (Jisshu U Sengupta and Sayantika Banerjee), their 8 year old daughter, Uma (Sara Sengupta), a once famous Film Director trying to find his way back and his ex-wife (Anjan Dutt and Gargi RoyChowdhury).It also shows rest of the characters – Rudranil Ghosh, Srabanti, Abhijit Guha, Partha Sen and Ambarish Bhattacharya doing their bit to “awaken Uma” (literal translation of the song name), which denotes evoking the Goddess Durga before her time of visit (usually in September/October). The song even has glimpses of the antagonists played byAnirban Bhattacharya and Babul Surpriyo along with appearances by guest stars Raj Chakraborty, Arindam Sil, Debaloy Bhattacharya, RJ Mir and Kamaleswar Mukherjee.
The storyline is about a vibrant young girl named Uma who is fighting for her life, her helpless father striving hard to make his daughter’s dream come true of celebrating Durga Puja. How many hurdles and dangers would Himadri have to overcome to be able to bring a smile onto his daughter’s face?
