It takes one great song to set a soul on fire: Bhatt

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment - Sneha Ma­hade­van

The mu­sic of Sri­jit Mukherji’s film, Begum Jaan star­ring Vidya Balan has soul­ful songs, which is un­like the rage in the cur­rent sound­scape of EDM and disco mixes. The film has leg­endary poet, Sahir Lud­hi­anvi’s clas­sic, Woh subah kabhi toh aayegi, com­posed by Khayyam for Phir Subah Hogi (1958). The mukhra has been changed to Woh subah hum hi se aayegi, which is the mukhra of un­re­leased stan­zas of same poem, writ­ten by Sahir.

The song is sung by Shreya Ghoshal and Ari­jit Singh. Ac­cord­ing to the mak­ers, it brings out the essence of the film that cel­e­brates the power of one’s in­domitable spirit of never giv­ing up. “This song comes at the end of the film. As Begum Jaan talks about sur­viv­ing against odds and tak­ing a stand for one­self, the mes­sage con­veyed is—be the change you wish to see and take the re­spon­si­bil­ity of mak­ing it hap­pen. Woh subah hum hi se aayegi voices out that daunt­less­ness in its beauty,” says Sri­jit.

“All it takes is one great song to set your soul on fire. Truth never ages! Thank u Sahir Saab! Grat­i­tude Khayam Saab for giv­ing us this gem,” adds Ma­hesh Bhatt.
