The song 'Abar Phire Ele' from Srijit Mukherji’s Dwitiyo Purush (2020) has beautiful words, conveying love, longing and admiration for the beloved. Written and composed by Anupam Roy, the song has been rendered by Arijit Singh. Though the words have beautiful imageries of romantic aspirations, the tune lacks the melody to convey the mood. It also doesn’t sound fresh to the ears.

The song is basically dedicated to two couples, Abhijit Pakrashi (Parambrata Chatterjee) and Amrita (Raima Sen), and Rajat (Gaurav Chakraborty) and his wife, played by Ridhima Ghosh. Abhijit is the senior detective, the protagonist of the sequel to Mukherji’s acclaimed thriller Baishe Srabon (2011). Rajat plays his assistant in solving the series of crimes, in which the character played by Anirban Bhattacharya plays a significant role.

These two police officers prioritise their profession and hence, they often end up not giving adequate time to their partners. When they eventually get together and they celebrate the most of it.

The song begins with Abhijit consoling his weeping wife with a kiss, and then we see, both Rajat and his wife, stealing moments to make love to each other, while helping each other in getting ready.

Though the visuals feature the moments of the couples’ togetherness, they don’t necessarily carry an essence of romance. Mukherji has earlier shot romantic songs such as 'Kichhu Chaini Ami' from Shah Jahan Regency (2019), with much more finesse, which is lacking in 'Abar Phire Ele'.

Dwitiyo Purush is slated for release on 23rd January. Watch the song below and let us know if you are keen to watch the film.
