The first song, the ear worm, in the best way possible ‘Sunoh’, recently released and fans loved the catchy beat. Sunoh,’ is a song created by the ingenious duo of Ankur Tewari and The Islanders, lyrically woven by the maestro Javed Akhtar and the young and talented Dot, harmoniously performed by Tejas Menon and Shivam Mahadevan. ‘Sunoh’ helps viewers to immerse into the exciting world of ‘The Archies,’ introducing the characters of the film.
Filmmaker Zoya Akhtar, said, “With ‘Sunoh’ we wanted to encapsulate the teenage soul of the 60’s. ‘The Archies’ is a celebration of that era. The song had to evoke simplicity, nostalgia but also a rebellion and idealism that could resonate with Gen Z today.“
