As the womanhood has finally become a movement against all the abuses and atrocities women and girls face on the daily basis, many singers and filmmakers have used it as an idea for their stories.
While some of these have inspired women to speak out while others have motivated them to believe in their inner strength and stand up taller in the face of their culprits. One song that is set to become the voice of millions of women across the country is ‘O Re Naseeba’.
The song is sung by the melodious singer Monali Thakur who has not only added the quintessential emotions but also strength to the lyrics. The song is penned down by Sanjiv Chaturvedi. It is composed by Sanjeev-Ajay. Krishika Lulla has conceptualised and directed the heart-wrenching video.
O Re Naseeba’s video depicts the feelings and trauma a woman goes through in different phases of her life. Not only the words are captivating but various dance forms bring out the real meaning behind the song. The song is released under the Eros Now label.
Krishika Lulla, the director of O Re Naseeba who has also conceptualised the video, told, “I was appalled reading about Nirbhaya back in 2012. Then as women stood up for themselves across the globe and movements like #TimesUp and #MeToo caught momentum, I wanted Indian women to feel empowered too.
We wanted to send out a message through this song that whatever inhuman acts these cruel men do, they have to pay for them when a woman finally finds her strength.
I, personally, would like to convey that a lady should always look over her shoulder and keep an eye out even around her most trusted people. But she should never blame herself for any of these crimes. She must believe in Karma and the God who will ultimately serve these heinous criminals right.”
