After the mellifluous 'Theher Ja', the latest melodic outing from the OST of Shoojit Sircar's Varun Dhawan-Banita Sandhu-starrer October is 'Tab Bhi Tu' in the voice of Rahat Fateh Ali Khan. While the melody of the new song is a lot different from 'Theher Ja', the new song bears the innate melancholic-yet-soothing feel of the film.

Be it the posters, the trailer or these songs — October makes one feel the silence, the sadness and solitude associated with the autumn season.

'Tab Bhi Tu' features Dhawan and Sandhu in an interplay of visuals when they are together and when they are alone — evoking a sense of bereavement and melancholic love. Just like the visuals, the tone of the sound arrangement adds to the effect. It is slow, intense and internal at the same time: Much like a personal dialogue between two close people.

Lyricist Tanveer Ghazi does a good job by penning words that complement and further the hidden emotions of the characters (who are mostly seen alone) to the listeners.

Rahat Fateh Ali Khan's voice perfectly accentuates the basic feel of the composition by Anupam Roy (who has previously composes music for Shoojit Sircar's previous outings Piku and Pink).
