Diptanil Chowdhury the music director of the film was also present at the film announcement. “Music plays an important role in the film. The background music is important as this is a thriller. There is a lot of silence used in the film. In such situations the reaction of the actors has to be shown though silence. Hence composing the music for the film is indeed very challenging” said Diptanil Chowdhury.
