Theher Jaa, the new song from Shoojit Sircar’s movie, October, has been released, and it seems that the director, the lyricist Abhiruchi Chand and singer, Armaan Malik have delivered another beautiful, soulful ballad. The video also introduces new shots of the central characters, Varun Dhawan’s Dan and Banita Sandhu’s Shuili. They don’t interact with each other in the song, bu their connection is apparent, as they furtively look at each other while the other isn’t noticing. It beautifully tells the connection between the two character without even any dialogue or interactions between them. Banita, especially looks very compelling in the video, and it looks like she’s going to have a very good debut in the industry, if the movie is well recieved by the critics.
October is also going to be important for Varun Dhawan, whose choices of movies lately have been criticized, especially the sexism of Judwaa 2 was called out by many reviewers and audiences even though the movie proved to be a blockbuster hit. Varun has said that he’s going to take note of the criticism and choose his projects with care.
Shoojit Sircar and Juhi Chaturvedi previously made the critically awarded, Piku, which broke the belief that women centric movies don’t make money, as it was a commercial success as well, while also being a movie that became an instant classic.
