Music has always been a high point in almost all Anjan Dutt films, and Aami Ashbo Phirey is no different. The film, in fact, is being branded as a musical. That aside, in probably the first of its kind move in the Bengali film industry, the entire soundtrack of Aami Ashbo Phirey was released on an on-demand digital entertainment platform.
One of the tracks from the album, Jaay Phuriye, went live recently and the song sounds much like vintage Anjan Dutt. It has been penned by Anjan himself and set to tune by his son Neel, who has composed all the songs for the film.
Jaay Phuriye, brilliantly sung by Amlan Chakraborty, talks about alienation in an increasingly selfish world that’s crammed by bigots. It has strains of blues but stops short of being narcissist. Anjan had exhaustively probed the genre in his albums like Purono Guitar (1995), Bhalobashi Tomaye (1996), and Keu Gaan Gaye (1997).
Anjan recently said, now being in the SVF fold, he is finally being able to make films of his choice.
The music too seems to be following the same way.
