Arijit Singh voice, Pritam’s composition and Amitabh Bhattacharya’s lyrics is a musical union which topped the music charts with ‘Channa Mereya’ last year. And they are back again, in “Raabta” this year. The first song ‘Ik Vaari Aa’ from the film released this afternoon and we have it playing on repeat ever since.
The song is about how a young couple comes to the realization that they are in love when they are away from each other. As described by the makers, the vibe of the song is about experiencing sweet separation. The official twitter account of the film introduced the song, with fans on the internet counting down hours to the release of the track and its official video.

Peppy, soulful and romantic in just the right measures, the song doesn’t tread the sad path, that songs about separation sometimes tend to do. So yes, this is indeed separation with a twist.
Apart from Kriti Sanon and Sushant Singh Rajput, the film also stars Jim Sarbh in the lead role. Raabta is Dinesh Vijan’s directorial debut. It is co-produced by T-series and Dinesh and Homi Adajania’s Maddock films. The romantic thriller is slated for release on 9th June this year.
