The 'Maa' song from Shiboprosad Mukherjee and Nandita Roy’s upcoming film Gotro is a soothing number that expresses the pangs of pain a mother and son feel after a conflict. The song, composed and written by Anindya Chattopadhyay, has been soulfully rendered by Arijit Singh.

Needless to say, the song is dedicated to a mother and features Tareq Ali (Nigel Akkara) and Mukti Debi (Anushua Majumdar). In the visuals, it appears that Tareq has hurt and angered Mukti Debi and so she has driven him out of the house. Tareq seems to be embarrassed by his actions and so keeps waiting at the doorstep for Mukti Debi to open the door again. He also recalls moments when her teachings made him realize a lot about life and he became emotional.

Mukti Debi, on the other hand, remains firm on her decision to teach Tareq a lesson and cannot bring herself to forgive him entirely. However, she also cannot eat peacefully as she gets concerned whether he has eaten. She also remembers the moments of dedicated service by Tareq.

Her stubborn stand pushes Tareq to plead for forgiveness, but she still struggles to allow him the opportunity. Meanwhile, Manali Dey’s character is seen taking care of Tareq with food and making arrangements for him so that he can sleep.

The simple words of the song basically depict the portrait of a mother that is full of kindness, love, sacrifice and gentleness. The song also throws light on the traits of the three characters and their compassionate features. Majumdar appears extremely comfortable in her character; Akkara, on the other hand, seems natural only in the sequence when he recalls the teachings of Mukti Debi, whom he calls Maa.

Gotro is slated for release on the day of Janmashtami. Watch the song below and let us know if you are keen to watch this film.
