Amitabh Bachchan has been receiving rave reviews for his rendition of Rabindranath Tagore’s Ekla Chalo Re in Kahaani. The song which literally means “Walk alone if no one is with you” has been appreciated by one and all. One of the well known singers of Rabindra sangeet, Promita Malika has praised Big B on trying to sing the song in spite of not being a Bengali. She said though his pronunciation is not perfect as he is not a Bengali, still he has done full justice to the song.
Another classical singer, Indrani Sen said that she has always been a fan of Amitabh Bachchan’s voice. She said that when a singer like Asha Bhosle couldn’t get her pronunciation right when it came to Rabindra sangeet, then how can one expect perfect bengali pronunciation from Mr. Bachchan. This is not the first time that Amitabh’s voice has been appreciated, his songs like “Main Yahan Tu Wahan” , “Neela Aasmaan So Gaya” , “Holi Khele Raghuveera Awadh Mein” and many more have been chartbusters in the past!
We personally love the song! The tune is beautiful and Amitabh’s voice in the song is mesmerizing. Here is the video of “Ekla Chalo Re” from the movie Kahaani.
