The first number from the much awaited detective thriller is here and I can’t stop grooving to it!
Ever since the trailer of Sushant Singh Rajput’s Byomkesh Bakshy has hit our screens, I can’t wait to watch it! Where the dark, intense and serious plot of the film captivated many through the trailer, the first soundtrack has a completely opposite impact. Jazzy, groovy and upbeat, Calcutta Kiss would instantly lift up spirits of those feeling blue. The audio track of the first song from the film is here and is sung by Imaad Shah and Saba Anand.Apart from the positive feel which this number possesses, what I like is the fusion of jazz and dub step beats it has. The soundtrack is mixed well and has a flow of an appealing tune and melody. The lyrics, however, could have been better and hard hitting in my opinion. I was slightly put off by the repeated usage of the phrase “Do you know what time it is?”
The number, on the whole, perfectly complements the era being showcased in the film. As we all know, Byomkesh Bakshy! is a detective thriller portraying the pre-independence years (1943) in Kolkata. As soon as I heard Calcutta kiss, it took me back to an era gone by which I believe was the point of the track in the first place.
Well I thoroughly enjoyed this number, now it’s your turn. Check out the link below to listen the track!
