It is special because all the Hindi songs in the film are by me and that way it is my debut as a music director. Khul Jaun Kya is the opening track of the album.””It is a very niche song and not the usual one you hear. Soumyajit letting me do this song and letting do whatever I want with respect to the music of the film is very courageous and kudos to him. There are songs like Khabar and Jugnu is very likely to be liked because they are love songs, feel good songs about life.”But Khul Jaun Kya is a very intense song and is direct adaptation of my father’s poem Rahat Indori. It’s a Ghazal which I adapted into a song composition. It was certain amount of responsibility on my shoulder as a composer to justify his words. And I make sure his literature and poems coming out through my music into the world.”‘#Homecoming’ also stars Sayani Gupta, Tushar Pandey, Plabita Borthakur and Soham Majumdar.Written and Directed by Soumyajit Majumdar, the film is a youth drama based on a group of friends who re-unite in their hometown to save their old theatre rehearsal space from being demolished for commercialisation plans of the state.
