Singer Neha Bhasin is back again with a new track and this time she beautifully expresses the sadness that seeps into an ending relationship of the contemporary youth. The track titled Tu Ki Jaane, is built in the zone of Punjabi hip-hop music.
Indian cinema and music videos have always glorified destruction in Heartbreak. Romanticised destruction, cutting veins, to live or die without you has been the message in every track but Neha’s track is not about that. For the first time, it brings a new perspective about the modern-day couple, which has never been presented before.
Talking about the song, Neha says, “Tu ki jaane, though a melancholic song about love unfulfilled and about a road block in a once-happy relationship, also embodies the evolution of a woman of today. There is something about broken hearts and bare bodies; it has certain purity to it. The woman that blossoms in love if not treated right will not end her life or destroy herself in an unfulfilled love. This is what we intended to bring forth.”
Tu ki jaane, composed and written by Neha Bhasin and produced to perfection by Sameer Uddin, is a Punjabi power ballad in the genre of hip-hop. The video is shot in a burnt down hotel in Nainital to strongly portray the cracks in a once intimate relationship.
Neha features supermodel Bardeep Dhiman as the male protagonist. Director Prayrit Seth wanted to portray Neha as unabashed, desirable vs the heartbroken, downtrodden imagery of a woman left by her man that we are used to seeing. This marks the era of a self-assured woman who knows her worth.
