The music for the film, scored by Neel Dutt, is a unacquainted blend of Calcutta nostalgia with melodies of contemporaneous groove.

Saurav Palodhi said, “I don’t think I could have started my journey as a director in a better way. The way I have received the support of every individual attached with this film Colkatay Columbus is incredible and it is because of the entire team that this evening has actualized.”


The film is running at multiplexes and single screens all over the city.
