The first song ‘Oye Hichki’ from Hichki featuring Rani Mukherjee releases today. The song is composed by Jasleen Royal and sung by Harshdeep kaur.
Singer Jasleen Royal, who recently shot to fame with her song ‘Din Shagna’, has also composed songs for movies such as ‘Baar Baar Dekho’, Shivaay and Haram Khor. Talking further about the song, Jasleen shares, “In this song ‘Oye Hichki’ we have used utensils, tubs, spoons because that’s the sonic space of the film for that particular sequence. The album is the entire journey of Naina (rani) in the film and exploring the world of hichki was a lot of fun. It was challenging and interesting to compose the music for the entire film with the producer Maneesh Sharma being extremely patient. Singer Harshdeep Kaur has also done full justice to the song.”
The movie and song will address prevalent societal discriminations, in other words – Hichkis, such as a preference for fair skin, partiality towards people with disabilities, females not having the right to make certain choices among others.
The film depicts the life of a common girl who has a nervous system disorder called, Tourette Syndrome that forces people who are suffering from it to make repetitive movements or sounds, involuntarily.
