I would love to see Jaya singing more songs: Debojyoti Mishra

Atanu Ghosh directed ‘Binisuto’ which was released in West Bengal recently has received an overwhelming response from the audience despite the ongoing corona pandemic. Debojyoti Mishra who has composed the music of ‘Binisutoy’ is happy to see that everyone is talking about  Bangladeshi actress Jaya Ahsan’s soulful rendition of a Rabindra Sangeet in the film, reports Times of India.

“She is not an artiste of Rabindra Sangeet, yet she did it exceptionally well, especially the way she sang the song being an actress. The Rabindra Sangeet we used in Binisutoy won’t fit in any other voice. While watching the film, I can actually realise how passionately she rendered the song. It's beyond any typical mannerisms many use in Tagore songs and reminds me of the artists of the old days. She needs to sing more in her voice” shared Debojyoti.

Meanwhile, there are two other songs in Atanu’s film – ‘Moner Bhitore Mon’ by Iman Chakraborty, and ‘Ei To Besh Achhi’ by Rupankar Bagchi. Iman's song carries forward the main theme of the film, while Rupankar's song creates a bridge between the trilogy from Mayurakshi to Binisutoy. Then there is a whistle Sonata featuring whistler Debasish Shome followed by a chamber orchestra in the film and it comes in the role of a catalyst.

Sharing his thoughts on director Atanu Ghosh’s works, the ace music composer said, “After Rituparno, with so much space, who would have thought of Rabindranath's song as my own. It is a trilogy that started with Mayurakshi. Atanu has always put my thoughts right. A circle has been completed from Mayurakshi to Binisuto. This trilogy is no doubt a unique attempt in Indian cinema that paints many lasting pieces in my mind.”

The film’s story penned by Atanu himself sheds light on the eternal quest for an alternative lifestyle. Besides Jaya Ahsan and Riiwick, the film has an ensemble cast including Kaushik Sen, Chandrayee Ghosh, Kheya Chattopadhyay and others in important roles.
