Music director Joy Sarkar said, "Most of the characters in this movie are young and so I tried to create a new age soundscape, especially for the new generation."

"As a music director of 'The Play', I got a freehand to work in this film which I hardly get anywhere else and for this I thank Ranjay," he added.

Commending the director and lyricist, Joy said, "Though it is my first chance to work for a thriller, but Ranjoy and Rajib made my work easy."
