This soft and melodious song written by lyricist Gilbert Chettiar, Founder of Lafzon Music and composed by Anshul Sharma was born out of separation, hardship and the frustration of the pandemic.
Director Devansh Patel, on receiving such great support and feedback from the film and music fraternity, said, "It's overwhelming. We're living in such tough times, it means a lot to us to get this warmth and acceptance. We have crossed 1 million views within a week and it just goes to prove our point further. Because, with poignant lyrics, mesmerising vocals, simple melody and an even simpler message, Manzar was created for you - the people of the world. Manzar is an ode to humanity and I am ever so grateful to receive this love for my directorial debut."
Lyricist Gilbert Chettiar, said, “This song was cathartic for me, I did not intend it to take this direction, totally followed my heart, captured how I was feeling at that point I believe this is my most honest creation, its unfiltered and as authentic as it can get. I’m really thankful that people have loved the song and they have supported us over social media. In times like this it's very reassuring, gives us a reason to look forward to a better world”.
