The upbeat and dreamy anthem, ‘Jawaab,’ features polished guitar work complemented by lush vocals, creating a perfect vibe that resonates with the listener’s emotions. The track weaves highly infectious melodies, poetic storytelling, and heartfelt lyricism into a simple yet tender sonic world, capturing the essence of human emotions.
Directed by Rajeev Thakur and starring actress Gayatri Bhardwaj, the music video narrates the captivating love story of a young man striving to win the heart of a girl who hesitates due to her prosthetic arm.
