For Mumbaikars, coming across little children selling off anything and everything from a box of tissue paper to bouquets of flowers at traffic signals and inside local trains is a familiar sight. No matter how many times they are turned down, the smile stays. So does the spirit. Rezgaariyaan, the latest track from Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra's Mere Pyare Prime Minister is a closer look at the lives of four such children who roam around the streets of Mumbai, from morning to night.
A young 8-year-old boy named Kannu, living in a Mumbai slum with his single mother, wants to build a toilet for her and ease her life. That says a volume about the relevance as well as the message that the story holds. Kannu, accompanied by the other children, isn't bogged down by life's day-to-day difficulty but instead wins them over like a boss and also earns money. The song, sung by Shankar Mahadevan and Shivam Mahadevan and written by Gulzaar, shows plenty of rejections coming their way. But the rhythm of life is uninterrupted.
The film, starring Anjali Patil as the lead actor and Om Kanojiya & Niteesh Wadhwa in other pivotal roles, is slated to hit the theatres on 15th March 2019.
