Fidaa song 'Tomake' is a flat composition with rhyming lyrics

Though composer Arindam Chatterjee has tried to create a groovy number, the rendition is quite superficial and not novel either.

‘Tomake’, the first song from Pathikrit Basu’s upcoming romantic drama Fidaa was released yesterday (27 May). Composed by Arindam Chatterjee, the duet is sung by Nikita Gandhi and the composer himself.

The song features the lead artistes Yash Dasgupta and newcomer Sanjana Banerjee, along with Anindya Chatterjee and Sairity Banerjee.

While Dasgupta plays Ishaan, a young man with anger-management issues, Sanjana essays the character of Khushi, a calm and charming girl.

The video has Khushi and Ishaan exploring various attractions in London with their friends. Khushi seems to be trying hard to have fun and gain Ishaan's attention, while Ishaan is feigning disinterest even though he too is falling for Khushi.

The lyrics of the song, by Prasen, describe the secret pining of the protagonists for each other. That the protagonists only long to be loved and soothed of all their scars is the subject of the song.

Though Chatterjee has tried to create a groovy number, the rendition is quite superficial and not novel either. The lyrics are too flat and seem to have been penned just to make a song that rhymes.

The film is scheduled to hit the screens on Eid next month.
