Interestingly, Crisscross’s teaser is a build-up to the song of subtle hope titled ‘Duniya’. It is beautifully sung by Nikhita Gandhi which shows a roadside band in the streets of Kolkata performing while the audience gets glimpses of the leading 5 ladies and their daily chores. The song builds an intrigue – what goes wrong within 24 hours? How will these women overcome the obstacles thrown at them? Will time ultimately heal the unsaid pain? The test of time will see to it all!
