When it comes to hitting people hard with words of reality no one does it better than Neetesh Jung Kunwar. 2018 has proved to be a wonderful year for Neetesh. January first, 2018 was the release date of Hamro Nepalma that was on the trending list for weeks. Next came his popular Flirty Maya and Nisthuri Mori both of which were sensational hits on Social Media. Following the epic success of these hits, Neetesh is back with Launa K Garne, which could possibly be the best song of this year.
He’s become a household name for quite a while now. His songs don’t just have a catchy tune but have deep meaningful lyrics as well. His latest release is a spectacular display of his talents. The song describes the ongoing issues of Nepal and how nothing is ever done about it. Talking about just the lyrics first, it clearly depicts how modern Nepalese society is at its worst. Issues like pollution, unmanaged urbanization, unemployment etc are a few of many bitter truths portrayed by the song’s lyrics. Every single line on the song hits you hard knowing what little issues make us suffer each day.
Production and Reception:
Now let’s get into the music and production. Only Neetesh Jung Kunwar can make a sad song fun and catchy. His retro music and retro visualization of the city’s problems fit perfectly well together. Most people will probably miss this but this presentation demonstrates how far behind Nepal is in modernization. We’re in the year 2018 but our situation still feels like that of the eighties. Even though it’s shameful, people seem to accept this bitter truth because like he says in the song, “What can we do about it anyway?” Within 6 days, the song has attracted more than half a million viewers on YouTube already. Knowing Neetesh’s popularity, it is more than certain the figure will eventually rise tenfold.
Is this just a song or an urge and a message to all? We think it’s the latter. Someone really needs to step up and restore this beautiful city and beautiful country to its formal glory. Otherwise like towards the end of the song, “Our pride will just be a thing of the past!”
