This soul-stirring song does just that. At first glance, this song might feel or sound like a plain sailing road trip number, but the symphony disguised as a merry song is actually quite contrary to its melody, which can only in its true perspective be understood/felt through its lyrical significance, and once the illusion fades can’t be heard the same way ever again.

With the union of three promising artists, namely Diptanil Barua, Zodiac Wave, and Swaraj Priyo, the expectations were all the more. These artists collaborated to give us a gem brimming with creative brilliance for polished and mature audiences with good taste.

This music video highlights the sensitive subject matter of mental health with unadulterated references. The cast starring the Bollywood actor AkashDeep Arora who acted in ‘Uri- the surgical strike’, ‘inside edge’, ‘Bamini & boys’, ‘unseen’, ‘teen do panch fame’ and opposite Samriddhi Aryal make us a question about our feats and triumphs and whether being alive through all of the trials and tribulations is really worth it? The authenticity of the lyrics makes you at times question the purpose of your existence.

Composer Diptanil Barua said that this is the first kind of chill-house Assamese song that has been ever explored. “The video produced by Mumbai-based ‘Streets Kotha’, is a tale of two lovers, you can see some romantic glimpses of a couple but the meaning and concept is way beyond that. It not just tells about the concept of love but a dreamer or a relist above all to anyone who is struggling but doing their best to stay alive. Plus, thankfully people got to know what we were trying to convey and the response was much overwhelming.”

“The casting of the video starring the two terrific actors Akash Deep Arora and Samriddhi Aryal was like cherry on the cake. Plus Akashdeep, in spite of not being familiar with the language, accurately blended with the character and perfectly conveyed the message through the song. It was just amazing of him and undoubtedly he was best fitted for the character,” he added.

In the first paragraph, the lyricist introduces the subject as a dreamer, searching for gold, which makes his hand dirty, rugged, and bruised. In simpler terms a dreamer who dares to dream, has to paralyse his fear, after all, there’s no courage without fear.

He then introduces a cynic, who questions the anatomy of a human body and says the heart was needless if today this was to be the outcome of it all. He then proceeds to say although he was moulded with flesh and blood; the people who fed on him had left him hollow with his mere carcass hanging on to his bones.

According to sources, the favourite paragraph of the lyrics is the one where he expresses the intensity of a stare in which he says whenever we gaze at something precious, we tend to not blink in awe but we also tend to not blink after drawing our last breath and when the soul has departed.

To say the least, the amalgamation of the wizards with their magic have victoriously narrowed the chasmic gap between the artist and the audience with eloquence combined with the magic of storytelling
