Watch the melodiously classical number from director Bedabrata Pain’s new film
Chittagong has been languishing in the cans for a while now, waiting for a proper theatrical release. But that didn’t stop director Bedabrata Pain taking his pet project to international film festivals and winning accolades. After making waves the world over, Chittagong will finally be released in India courtesy Bohra Brothers and Anurag Kashyap. Starring unknown faces, this one is an uplifting action-drama based on a real life incident. The same story was made into the more commercially viable Khele Hum Jee Jaan Se, starring Abhishek Bachchan, Deepika Padukone and others, which was a complete no-show at the box office. Rumour has it that Chittagong was deliberately held up to promote KHJJS, but that is a whole different tale we prefer not to tell here.
Of the eclectic bunch of actors, Manoj Bajpayee and Nawazuddin Siddiqui are the only actors in Chittagong who have recall value. The film’s promotional activity has just begun and we were highly impressed by the Bolo na song teaser. Written by Prasoon Joshi, this song is one of the most spellbinding compositions from Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy recently. Cynics had written off the music director trio after some average fare they dished out, but it seems that they will jump right back into their groove with this one.
We loved this classical-inspired song and the thoughtful lyrics added to our delight. We can’t wait to watch the movie and share our review with you, dear Bollywoodlifer!
