Manmarziyaan song: Abhishek Bachchan, Taapsee Pannu settle in after marriage in 'Chonch Ladhiyaan'

The lovely Punjabi romantic track by composer Amit Trivedi and lyricist Shellee hits all the right notes.

After a sad ballad, 'Daryaa', and a quirky fun number, ‘DhyaanChand’, Manmarziyaan introduces the Punjabi romantic song 'Chonch Ladhiyaan' which grows on you with every listen. The track is focused on the characters of Robbie (Abhishek Bachchan) and Rumi (Taapsee Pannu).

From the scenes, it seems the pair is on their honeymoon. At first, they are distant and a bit silent with one another, but as time passes by, they get comfortable in each other’s company. The lyrics of 'Chonch Ladhiyaan’ by Shellee reflect that as well. Composer Amit Trivedi has kept the Punjabi melody simple, accentuated only with the dholak and percussion instruments.

The duet has been sung by Jazim Sharma and Harshdeep Kaur and their ideal voices bring a certain maturity to the number.

Pannu’s character Rumi visibly relaxes in the song, her smile growing wider as she spends time with her new husband Robbie. In contrast, Vicky Kaushal’s character has to console himself by looking at his photograph with Rumi from the happier times.

Manmarziyaan, directed by Anurag Kashyap, is due to be released on 14 September.
