Jaago Uma- Title Track of Uma- Out Now

VF’s upcoming film, directed by Srijit Mukherji, Uma’s most awaited song ‘Jaago Uma’ has arrived after much anticipation.

Jaago Uma is a mesmerising number we will hear from the dulcet tones of Rupankar Bagchi, the National Award winning singer. This song is an amalgamation of the previous 3 songs released by SVF, which portray the lives of the main characters which includes Himadri and his estranged wife, Menoka (Jisshu U Sengupta and Sayantika Banerjee respectively), their 8 year old daughter, Uma (Sara Sengupta), a once famous Film Director trying to find his way back and his ex-wife (Anjan Dutt and Gargi RoyChowdhury). It also shows rest of the characters –Rudranil Ghosh, Srabanti, Abhijit Guha, Partha Sen and Ambarish Bhattacharya doing their bit to “awaken Uma” (literal translation of the song name), which denotes evoking the Goddess Durga before her time of visit (usually in September/October). The song even has glimpses of the antagonists played by Anirban Bhattacharya and Babul Surpriyo along with appearances by guest stars Raj Chakraborty, Arindam Sil, Debaloy Bhattacharya, RJ Mir and Kamaleswar Mukherjee.

A grand event was organised jointly by Siti Cable and SVF to launch Jaago Uma in Ballygunge Durga Bari in the presence of Rupankar Bagchi himself, Anupam Roy, Srijit Mukherji, Sayantika Banerjee, Srabanti, Anirban Bhattacharya, Somlata Acharyya, Neel Dutt, Surangana Bandopadhyay, Ujjaini Mukherjee, Sidhu, Pota among others. Durgabari at Ballygunge, Kolkata was decorated with the theme of Durga Puja for the occasion.

The film is inspired from the true story of Evan Leversage, the Canadian boy suffering from cancer and for whom his village of St. George, Ontario came together to celebrate Christmas much ahead of the actual festival.

Excited about the release of the song, Srijit Mukherji, exclaimed – “Uma is slowly awakening as 1st June is fast nearing…Jaago Uma best describes the feel of the movie and awakens our soul. Rupankar once again weaves magic through his voice and Anupam (Roy), carries it forward with his magnificent composition.”

Uma, slated to release on 1st of June, has already been recognised by New York Indian Film Festival (NYIFF) 2018, London Indian Film Festival (LIFF) 2018, India Film Festival of Alberta (IFFA) 2018, Indian Film Festival of Melbourne (IFFM) 2018, Reelworld Film Festival Toronto 2018, Birmingham Indian Film Festival 2018 and Habitat Film Festival New Delhi 2018. The storyline is about a vibrant young girl named Uma who is fighting for her life, her helpless father striving hard to make his daughter’s dream come true of celebrating Durga Puja. How many hurdles and dangers would Himadri have to overcome to be able to bring a smile onto his daughter’s face?
