Kangana Ranaut-starrer Simran promises to be a tale of rediscovering oneself and making a mark of one’s own. The songs of the film have been able to convey the essence of the film through their lyrics and soothing music. After ‘Pinjra Tod Ke’, a new song titled ‘Meet’ was released on 26 August.
Sung by Sunidhi Chauhan, ‘Pinjra Tod Ke’ features Ranaut as a woman who works in the housekeeping department of a hotel. She is full of life and enjoys the smallest things that life offers to her. She is quirky, funny and endearing, and at the same time, vulnerable. To put it succinctly, the song speaks of freedom from all shackles of inhibition, awkwardness, and shortcomings.
The song speaks of companionship and of the search for true love. Ranaut’s character is a divorcee and a loner. In the process of self-discovery, she comes across these men in her life at various junctures.‘Meet’, sung by Arijit Singh, composed by Sachin-Jigar and written by Priya Saraiya, hits the right notes and is heart-touching from the start. The song features Ranaut’s character Praful Patel interacting with the men in her life in the film; the guy at her workplace, another one at a casino and finally Sohum Shah’s character, who is Ranaut’s love interest in the film.
‘Meet’ has a melancholic melody that lingers and leaves a lasting impression. It is soft-paced and follows a medium-tempo which accentuates the feel of the song.
Simran stars Kangana Ranaut, Mark Justice, Sohum Shah, Esha Tewari Pande and Aneesha Joshi. Directed by Hansal Mehta, it is co-produced by Bhushan and Krishan Kumar’s T-Series Films and Mehta’s Karma Pictures. The film is slated to release on 15 September.
