Marathi music in Sridevi’s next
BOMBAY TIMES (September 9, 2012)
The reign of item numbers and raunchy title tracks may now finally see a potential competitor. Sridevi’s upcoming film, English Vinglish, marks the return of pure melodies with no item numbers, remixed tracks, old songs rehashed with techno beats — all trends being followed en masse these days.
The film only has original songs, including a Marathi wedding number, which Sridevi will be seen dancing to. With this, debutante director Gauri Shinde adds a new cultural flavour to her film’s music and also pays tribute to her roots. This movie, particularly this marathi song, is all about appreciating our heritage.
The music of the film is an eclectic mix of refreshing singles. Music director Amit Trivedi has come up with a diverse collection yet again. The title track English Vinglish is an extremely peppy number. Says Gauri, “The songs have a fresh feel and are true to the essence of the film. Amit Trivedi and Swanand are geniuses and I love the music. Even if this was not my album, I would be in love with it!”
Adds Amit, “I am proud to be a part of this film. It is a film with a lot of soul. It’s a beautiful portrayal of emotions. I wanted to create music that captures the essence of the story. I was able to do that through Gauri’s vision.”
Produced by Eros International and R Balki, English Vinglish releases worldwide on October 5, 2012.
