“We want to please all palates, all age groups and all clusters of people. Nowadays, the idea of only a restaurant or just a dance club does not work. People want both. When we go out, we want a place where there is great food, superb ambiance and good music to keep the conversation going. Klocal is where you can let your hair down and just chill,” said Rajesh Jaiswal.
Kolkata's well-known tabla player, Bickram Ghosh, who is also the music director of the film 'Khajoor Pe Atke', introduced the film as a "laugh riot".
The film is the directorial debut of popular actor Harsh Chhaya.
"It is an Everyman’s Story so I retained my own style – ethnic elements with folk influences," said Ghosh. "Harsh has himself penned the lyrics of three songs and I must say he is a brilliant writer. The music of the film has a refreshing live feel to it.”
Timir Biswas and Ujjaini Mukherjee, who have lent their voices to the songs, were also present at the launch along with actor Saswata Chatterjee, danseuse Tanushree Shankar, actress Jaya Seal and singers Rupam and Iman Chakraborty among others.
