Ahead of the film's digital release next week on Amazon Prime Video, 'Madari Ka Bandar', the second song from Shoojit Sircar's Gulabo Sitabo (2020), gives further insight into the shenanigans going on between Mirza (Amitabh Bachchan) and Baankey (Ayushmann Khurrana), a landlord and tenant who despise each other.
In 'Madari Ka Bandar', Mirza tries to see if he can try to sell his building. Talking about the song, Sircar said, "This is quite a special song. I would like to think that the real 'madari' is up there looking at all of us down below; we are all in a sense 'bandars' dancing to his tune. But yes, Anuj Garg and lyricist Dinesh Pant have done a great job with the music, Tochi Raina has sung the song wonderfully, we tried to keep the music as raw as possible and I am happy the song suits the film perfectly."
Composer Garg added, "Composing 'Madari Ka Bandar' has been special. It was incredible to watch multi-talented Dinesh Pant charmingly weave in the essence of the film with his beautiful words. The entire album perfectly captures the quirks and eccentricities of the movie and does justice to Shoojit-da’s vision for Gulabo Sitabo. The soundscape of 'Madari Ka Bandar', co-sung by Tochi Raina, will leave the audience mesmerized.”
Raina, who has sung the quirky number with Garg, said, “The brilliance of Anuj Garg is that he can seamlessly blend a quintessential folk song with contemporary melodies. It was a pleasure to have sung 'Madari Ka Bandar' alongside him for Gulabo Sitabo. The lyrics are very expressive yet soothing. I am certain that the audience will be left enchanted with the song's excellence."
Gulabo Sitabo, written by Juhi Chaturvedi, will be streamed on Amazon Prime Video from 12 June.
