Pritom, Protic and Toya, sizzle in 'Girlfriend er Biya'!

Pritom Hasan's much-anticipated Girlfriend er Biya, is finally out on YouTube now, and it contains the usual antics by this promising young music director. Pritom, by this time, has mastered the art of incorporating the most ridiculous sounding plots in his songs, turning them into complete laugh riots. Behind all the glitz and glam is a very solid number. The intro is an emphatic mishmash of traditional and electronic sounds, a style that has become synonymous to Pritom. However, we have been somewhat spoiled by Pritom's mastery in fusion by his previous works, so this particular song might seem like a run-of-the mill product for some. Protic Hasan shows off some of his acting prowess in his hilarious depiction of a heartbroken lover in the wedding ceremony of his ex. Toya is the centerpiece of the music video, and looks gorgeous in the outfit of the traditional bride. There is even a somewhat confusing surprise cameo appearance by Habib Wahid. That being said, Taneem Rahman Angshu did a good job on the direction of the video. Girlfriend er Biya, is in no way a profound musical experience, but neither does it claim to be. It exists to entertain the masses, and I believe the reception and views of the music video speak for themselves in this case.
