Bheja Bheja Shopnogulo, is a song about a woman’s unrequited love and reminisces. The love that she experienced, nurtured but could never spell out. She lives with that Untold Love and at times looks back in happiness or with a tinge of sorrow about the time she has spent and dreams she had shared with the person concerned. Life for her goes on like this where, at the same time, she feels that the person also loves her and they might unite one day. In Short and in Bengali, it is – Na-Bola Premer Gaan (The Untold Love Song).
“I am looking forward to the audience reaction to ‘Bheja Bheja Swapnagulo’. It is a very different kind of composition, purely melody based, that I have sung for the first time. The guitar and violin have been extensively used to reflect the mood of the song in the best possible manner. The experience of working with Sreeraj Da, Apeksha & Rocket Da has been wonderful”, said Singer, Ms Mekhla Dasgupta.
“Bheja Bheja Swapnagulo is a love song dedicated to the silent lovers this Valentine’s month, who wanted to but could not say, ‘I Love You’ to the person they deeply loved. The song captures the fond remembrance of that beloved person. The composition is done in such a manner that it has a tranquil effect on the listener. Collaborating once again with Rocket Da for this song was a delightful experience. Mekhla is an extremely talented performer. Through her rendition, she has brought out the nuances required, perfectly. Her beautiful rendition should make this a listener’s delight. My association with Asha Audio dates back over a decade. I am thankful to Apeksha for reposing faith on me and allowing me creative freedom to make this song”, said Lyricist & Music Composer, Mr Sreeraj Mitra.
