Raftaar’s Song ‘Restart’ Is Anthemic
NEW DELHI, (IANS) – The track ‘Restart’ sung by the rapper Raftaar in Director Vidhu Vinod Chopra’s film ‘12th Fail’ is a hardened motivational track which inspires you to restart your story until it is what you want it to be.
The music is boisterous and dramatic, cleverly infusing rock riffs with gangsta rap and electronic. Anthemic, power-driven, ‘Restart’ is the ultimate motivational rap rock song, which is heavily driven by groove, rhythm, and a very ‘natural’ feel.
The video features various clips from the film while intercutting with the song’s production and its studio rendition. The music video is very bleak and shows a very realistic depiction of just how intense UPSC preparations can be, as well as the depression of failure that drives a person to the ground.
The production is raw. However, this raw sound goes hand in hand with its theme and music and as such makes it a very good creative choice.
