The title track for Bawri Chhori constantly intercuts between India and London, and shows the lead character wandering around the streets of London, looking for a specific destination. The initial half of the video shows her full of life and innocence, as she gets married to the man of her dreams in India. However, the mood in the second half of the video decidedly changes when it emerges that her husband has deserted her, stolen her jewellery and run off to London. The closing stages of the video show the woman, as her “madness” builds up to a crescendo, and she plots her trip to London to seek revenge.
Composed by Karthik Ramalingam as a rock ballad, the title track does a decent job of conveying the myriad emotions running through the mind of the protagonist, as she deals with heartbreak and betrayal. Ratish Sekhar brings Rahul Kumar Shukla’s poignant lyrics to life with his breezy voice.
Directed by Akhilesh Jaiswal, Bawri Chhori stars Aahana Kumra, Vikram Kochhar, Rumana Molla and Niki Aneja Walia. The film will release on Eros Now on January 11, 2021.
