Nila Madhab Panda's Kadvi Hawa is a rare Hindi film that deals with the topical subject of environmental change. Backed by the realistic acting talents of Sanjai Mishra, Ranvir Shorey and Tilottama Shome, the film is set to be released on 24 November. The first song of the film, aptly titled, 'Main Banjar' was released by the makers of the film, today.

The song, composed by Santosh Jagdale, and sung by Mohan Kannan, is a desolate ode to the changing scenario of life and earth.

The lyrics written by Mukta Bhatt draw parallels between human life and the nature that surrounds it. As nature degrades, so does the quality of life and human existence. The composition has a simple, but wonderful rhythm that lends it a very hypnotic touch.

Kannan's deep bass voice give the song a further gravitas that is elevated towards the latter half, as the composition speeds up into a more urgent call for attention.

Jagdale's minimalistic use of instruments, with a focus on percussion, adds to the impact of the lyrics.

Yet, it is Sanjai Mishra's intensity on screen that makes the song visually compelling. The actor looks in fine form as he plays the old blind man who has seen nature, and life, crumble into destruction around him. From expressing absolute sorrow, to confusion and helplessness, the actor does not miss a beat in his performance.

Kadvi Hawa is produced by Manish Mundra, Akshay Kumar Parija and Nila Madhab Panda.
