“Neel Digante” song from the movie “Gotro”
Here comes the first song Neel Digante from the movie Gotro directed by Shiboprosad Mukherjee and Nandita Roy.
This is a romantic song that expresses the feeling of first love. Jhuma played by Manali Dey has fallen in love with Tariq Ali played by Nigel Akkara and how she is expressing her feelings that has been wonderfully captured in this song.
The song has been written and composed beautifully by Anindya Chatterjee. He has wonderfully incorporated the famous Tagore song Neel Digante in the song keeping it in sync with the mood of the song. In the vocals Shreya Ghosal has created magic with her melodious voice. She has given the required enthusiasm to express the feeling of the girl who has fallen in love for the first time.
The video of the song is equally praise worthy. Director duo Shiboprosad-Nandita hardly get chance to show budding romance of two young hearts in their films but when they get the chance they do their best. The song has been picturised in real locations from the busy streets to grocery shop to interiors of home, showing the madness of Jhuma. Manali Dey has done full justice to capture the emotions of her character. There is also a dream sequence on a scooter, inspired from the popular Uttam Suchitra song which works really well. Another smart thing about the picturisation of the song is the use of the lines from Rabindranatah Tagore’s Neel Digante, whenever the lines have been used it has been shown as part of a stage performance or its rehearsal as the original song itself.
