The title track of Abhimanyu Mukherjee’s upcoming film Piya Re is a soulful composition by Jeet Ganguly. Punjabi singer Asees Kaur has lent her voice to the deep and sombre number.
The romantic drama features Soham Chakraborty and Srabanti Chatterjee as the lead pair.
In the song, the female protagonist Riya (Chatterjee) is seen lamenting about the undesirable separation from her lover, Rabi (Soham). In the beginning of the song, Rabi leaves Riya as a dejected man, while the helpless and desperate Riya chooses to conceal her true emotions.
Amidst the harsh reality, Riya lives in an imaginary world that only comprises of her and Rabi. Day and night she reminisces the good old times with him and secretly asks for his forgiveness for hurting him against her wishes.
Priyo Chatterjee’s simple lyrics express the secret despair of Riya of choosing a wrong path which has taken her away from Rabi. In her heart, she weeps that she cannot forget him no matter how hard she tries.
Kaur’s deep and husky voice suits the mood of the song perfectly. It echoes the emptiness of Riya’s heart to a great extent.
Piya Re is a passionate love story between Rabi and Riya who get estranged due to some unfortunate occurrences. Whether Rabi finally manages to rescue Riya from her situation and reunites with her will be clear once the film is released.
