Juddhang Dehi: Makers release first song of Dev's upcoming release Golondaaj
The song was released in the presence of Golondaaj’s ensemble cast and the stalwarts of popular football clubs of Bengal - Mohunbagan Sporting Club, East Bengal Sporting Club and Mohammaden Sporting Club.
‘Golondaaj’, is a historic fiction film showcasing the journey of Nagendra Prasad Sarbadhikari, known as the 'Father of Indian Football’, the first Indian to ever play football and thereby, introducing it as a mainstream sport in the country.
SVF’s upcoming movie is all set to hit theatres on Oct 10.
This song ‘Juddhang Dehi’ is one of the most important songs of the movie, which showcases the training of the then Bengali Football Players as they boost up for the challenge against the Britishers.
It beautifully shows the unique and ancient ways of athletic workout with some other eye-catching glimpses or shots from the movie.
The notable and powerful lyrics by Srijato Bandopadhyay and the strong voices of Nirmalya Roy and Sovan Ganguly, when blended, perfectly creates the required impact of the song.
The powerful ensemble cast of Golondaaj comprising of Dev, Ishaa Saha, John Bhattacharya and others along with Director Dhrubo Banerjee were present at the “Juddhang Dehi” song launch event yesterday, who not only extensively shared their experience about making the song but also many interesting trivia from the film.
Director of the movie Dhrubo Banerjee said, “‘Juddhang Dehi’ is pleasingly created by the very talented Bickram Ghosh which comes at a major point of the movie when Nagendra Prasad Sarbadhikari gets prepared for the Football Tournament with his team of 11 players. This song holds the key to move the story forward.”
While, on the contrary, Bickram Ghosh said, “I am happy to collaborate with Dhrubo once again for “Golondaaj” after ‘Guptodhoner Sondhane’ and ‘Durgeshgorer Guptodhon”. Juddhang Dehi is a song that is primarily built on the inevitable cries of war. The war cry involves nothing but football and an immense urge towards a revolution by the Indians of pre-independence era. The song is made to reflect the undying emotions of those who dreamt of bringing a change through football. I hope people will love listening to ‘Juddhang Dehi’ as much as I loved creating it.”
