Anjan Dutt is best known for his music and so are his films. From the remake of Pagla Hawa in Bong Connection to title track of Chalo Lets Go, it is his film that has changed the kind of music Bangla cinema beard and all credit can be given to his son Neel Dutt, who already has bagged a National award for his work in Ranjana Ami ar Ashbona. The music of Dutt’s latest flick Ganesh Talkies is also done by Neel, which consists of 3 original tracks, 1 Rabindra sangeet and a remix.
The album released under the banner of T-Series begins with a song called Yeh Zindagi sung by Arko Mukherjee and Neel himself. The song is refreshing and adds to the collection of a new genre of music created by Dutt, which also houses Maula from Madly Bangali. This Hindi song has certain similarities with the kind of music that has been produced by SD Burman in the late 60s. The fifth song of the album is a remix of Yeh Zindagi, but however the original score stands above the latter one.
The second song of the album is called Ke Sara Ra Ra, sung and written by the director himself. Though it is a Dutt song but however it does not bears the qualities it is expected to. “Originally there were no songs in the film that was made by me, but I had to do it on repeated requests from my producer”, said Dutt at the music launch and the song quite naturally justifies the statement.
Jhal Legeche is the third song of the album and also the most talked about of the all. “I wanted an item song for the film and this is it. As Pagla Hawa, this song will also be the most sought after this year”, said the director. Jhal Legeche is sung by Rupankar and Ujjaini and is completely new to the kind of music used till now by Anjan Dutt in his films. It is a must listen song of this time and also promises to be well played in the “Thakur Bhashan” season.
Like most of his films, Ganesh Talkies also consists of a Rabindra Sangeet called Shedin Dujoney sung by Indranil Sen. This song is quite different from the kind of remakes that were done with Jagoroney or Pagla Hawa. Harmonium has been the main constituent of the music and the voice of Indranil Sen is unparallel. Perhaps, it can be well said to be one of the best remakes of Rabindra Sangeet done till date.
Buy the album to hear some really good music that Bengali cinema can produce. It costs as low as Rs60 and is available at all music stores.
