“Maharajo” song from the movie “Ek Je Chhilo Raja”
One after another every song of the film Ek Je Chhilo Raja is winning hearts of music lovers. It is one album which is really going to be cherished for long time. Here comes the third song from the album, a recreated version of popular Rabindra Sangeet Maharajo Eki Saje.
This is one popular Tagore song which has been sung by so many singers in their own style. Among those one popular version is the one sung by Sahana Bajpaie with music arranged by Samantak Sinha. This was released in 2016. Director Srijit Mukherji found this song appropriate for the situation in the film when the Sanyasi returns to his house where he used to live his life as a king, after a huge gap of many years. During this period he has changed a lot and has turned into a different person. The lines written and composed by Rabindranath Tagore defines this situation perfectly so the song has find a place into the narrative.
In the song we can see Jisshu Sengupta in his Sanyasi look. his expressions are priceless. Jaya Ahsaan as his sister also looks impressive. Besides these two talented actors one cant overlook the wonderfully captured frames by DOP Gairik Sarkar.
