After all film directing Ashutosh Gowariker has been an accomplished film maker and when it comes to films that bring with them a sense of patriotism (Lagaan, Swades), the music has always been a highlight. He may have moved on from A.R. Rahman to Sohail Sen but the latter's compositions in What's Your Raashee? had proved that the replacement was not a bad idea at all. Now that Ashu has entrusted Sohail to create a much bigger (and relatively serious) sound track in the form of Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Sey, one hears the album with keen interest to know if the man manages to deliver. Javed Akhtar writes.Over all Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Sey is a good quality album.Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Sey is based on the book DO and DIE: The Chittagong Uprising 1930-34 by Manini Chatterjee.It tracks the story of 56 innocent yet fearless young boys, 5 defiant revolutionaries, 2 determined young women, and an idealistic leader - Surjya Sen, a school teacher by profession. This group represents a little-known chapter in history; a forgotten night that reigned terror on the British through a series of calculated attacks. The movie recounts the true incident of a series of attacks executed in one single night on 18th April 1930 and its aftermath. Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Sey is a true story of these forgotten heroes and the narrative takes us through their daring escapes and tragic captures, and most importantly, their undying legacy. Abhishek Bachchan plays Surjya Sen, a school teacher by profession, Surjya is the leader of the band of 64 revolutionaries. Deepika Padukone portrays Kalpana Datta, the daughter of an extremely rich and influential landowner, who is independent and highly educated for a woman of that era, and has an interest in the science of bomb-making. Nirmal Sen, played by Sikander Kher is one of Surjya's closest friends, and a passionate revolutionary who had already been sent to jail once prior to the Chittagong attack.Pritilata Waddedar (Vishakha Singh) is Kalpana's best friend and although she is as passionate about the cause as Kalpana. Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Sey has been produced jointly by Ajay Bijli, Sanjeev K. Bijli and Sunita A. Gowariker, with a lasting soundtrack composed by Sohali sen.
