The music arrangement is simply amazing. The music was mix mastered in Chennai. The song has been released to keep the audience of this generation in mind. I believe everyone will like the song. This song is related to the history of this country. As long as Bangladesh exists, this song will exist, and my father will live with this song even after hundreds of years,” said.

I must express my gratitude to Dithi, Upal and their entire family. ‘Joy Bangla Bangla Joy’ should be listened to by all because this song is historical. The song is already very popular, yet let this song spread even more with the new cover.”
