Shekhar Ravjiani from music composer duo Vishal-Shekhar has arrived with his single Devi. Devi is an Indian classical merge which is very powerful in its nature. Vishal Dadlani has not contributed to this song as both composition and singing credits belong to Shekhar. Devi as a song talks about the female feticide and how it affects the society as whole. As the festive season for the entire country has arrived, a song like Devi could be used to reach maximum people with this social message.
Shekhar could be seen praying with others in a rather intensive way which goes perfectly with the mood of the single. Lyrics of this song are written by Anvita Dutt and she has merged melody with message beautifully. Shekhar has lip-synced the song while performing on it and has also played ‘nagada’ in it with massive energy. 5 months back Shekhar has released his spiritual single by the name of Gayatri Mantra and it was received very well by the audience. Raj Kaushal who is the director of 3 feature films including Anthony Kaun Hai (2006) has directed the music video.
Shekhar’s song is made for the purpose of spreading the message ‘beti bachao’ through this wonderful form of art. Instead of showing the fictional story of a girl and conceived it like a short film, Raj Kaushal has shot it exactly like a music video. As T-Series has started this trend lately of doing music videos with established music directors and singers, Shekhar is the latest artist on this list.
