“Khoya Sa” is a story revolving around two women in the 21st century sub-urban India who are confused by our cultural notions of conventional love. It’s a theatrical representation of an undeniable attraction. Though they are bound by society, their love soars free within them. The music video features singer-songwriter Tanmaya Bhatnagar alongside Sanjeeta Bhattacharya as the protagonists.
On “Khoya Sa”, Sanjeeta Bhattacharya embraces the melodic and memorable songwriting sensibility of pop, wrapping it up with a nice dollop of RnB stylings. The track features sitar, a very crunchy bass and guitar. The end result is a polished, yet organic sounding track which bears a rich, modern production touch. Sanjeeta Bhattacharya loves to branch into varying musical styles and “Khoya Sa” is a testament to the fact that she is doing it just right.
Her versatility as a singer-songwriter and her interest in diverse genres reflects her status as a consummate musician and performer, something which won’t come as a surprise to people familiar with her work.
