Tagore's songs add a different dimension to the movies and help tell stories. Simplicity in Tagore's songs has made them eternal. Many filmmakers also consider their songs very cinematic. He Ritwik Ghatak , Tarun Mazumder or Tapan Sinha - Everyone has used Tagore songs in their movies. Tagore's masterpieces have been adapted to create a harmonious impact on Satyajit Ray's films for many years. Whether it's his documentary about Tagore or movies like Teen Kanya, Charulata or Ghare Baire, Ray has interpreted that Tagore adapts to his own vision. Sometimes, we have also seen that Bollywood music composers have used Tagore melodies several times. Rabindrasangeet is often beautifully woven into the movie's script and takes the story forward. This unique event is expected in which many Calcutta music lovers attend.
