Amitabh Bachchan is certainly the Shahenshah of Bollywood! Be it his acting or singing skills, his ability to bowl you over is unparalleled! He has sung the song Eklo Chalo Re for Vidya Balan’s forthcoming film Kahaani and it is easily one of the best tracks of the movie!
We don’t think we even need to mention that Eklo Chalo Re was written by the Nobel Prize winning poet Rabindranath Tagore. And Amitabh Bachchan has done complete justice to his (Rabindranath Tagore’s) inspiring creation.
The lyrics, with the soothing music, and Amitabh Bachchan’s baritone leave a magical impact on you! Interestingly, Amitabh Bachchan and Sujoy Ghosh (the director of Kahaani) have worked together in the past in Aladin! Though the movie was a flop, looks like this time their collaboration might not disappoint the audiences!
Anyhow, Eklo Chalo Re by Amitabh Bachchan was recorded last year and he had then written on his blog: “May I just say that singing Rabindrasangeet for the first time was the greatest revelation. The beauty of the language, the lyricism of the tune and its dhun are outstanding. Singing the track today, you discover how inadequate you are to handle something created by Gurudev Tagore.”
