It also speaks about the importance of family and togetherness when things get tough.
The messages from people who watched the film are heart-warming to read. Some of the special messages include ‘I hugged my dad after watching this film and thanked him for everything he has done for me’ and ‘I watched this film with an Iraqi friend and he was too moved. We laughed and cried together.’
Wrtiter-director Devanshu Singh said, ‘The song is Satyanshu’s brainchild. He was filled with these experiences of the people in Iraq, Baghdad about the way. He came up with the thought and the expression. Much like the film the song also has it’s happy and melancholic parts. It’s an invitation but it’s also people’s wishes for the birthday. It’s like a fan art for the movie.”
On his favourite fan comment about the film, Devanshu says, “I am glad the audiences loved the film so much and they are sharing their opinions with us. My favourite comment is ‘I wish the world would be governed by Madan’. It’s shows how much they believe in that character and his innocence. But basically every comment mentioned in the song is special to us.”
