// // // Ashutosh Gowariker is keen on getting every nuance right for his period film Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Sey. After all, the devil is in the details. To get the authentic ambient sound for the film, he travelled to rural West Bengal and Bangladesh with his sound designer Stephen Gomes. They recorded the background score live, as it would’ve been hard to reproduce it in the studios.
Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Sey is based on the book Do And Die by Manini Chatterjee which is based on the 1930s Chittagong Uprising. A source reveals, “As it’s a period film, Ashutosh is making sure that every bit of the film depicts that era. From the costumes to the sets, Ashutosh has delved into every minute detail.”Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Sey
Not satisfied with the studio sound, Ashutosh figured that the only way to capture the essence of the music is travel to its source. The source continues, “While designing the background score and music, Ashutosh heard a lot of music of that time. He sat with the sound designer Stephen Gomes and tried to produce some music, but couldn’t achieve what he was looking for.”
Where there’s pain, there’s gain. “Ashutosh is very happy with the final product. It gives the film a very authentic feel,” concludes the source.
