Vishal Bhardwaj: The Whistle In ‘Khufiya’ Is My Favorite Melody
LOS ANGELES, CA (IANS) – Filmmaker and music composer Vishal Bhardwaj, whose spy thriller ‘Khufiya‘ will play at the International Film Festival of Los Angeles, said: “The process of creating music for a film is usually so organic and mixed up that it’s very difficult for me to bifurcate it. In the case of ‘Khufiya,’ there is a theme in the film, a whistle which is my favorite melody.”
“I thought I had not exploited it fully and hence I decided to create a song around it – ‘Dil Dushman’. It was an exciting first for me to create a song for a film months after the film’s music was initially composed. I am thrilled that we had the opportunity to unveil our album for all of you, and I was even more delighted to perform live and share the stage with Rekha at this event,” shared Vishal.
‘Khufiya’ is a film that features a total of nine songs, sung by some of the finest in the industry, Rekha Bhardwaj, Arijit Singh, Sunidhi Chauhan, Jyoti Nooran, Rahul Ram. Each of these songs contributes to the film’s unique musical tapestry, said Vishal.
The songs include — ‘Dil Dushman’ by Sunidhi Chauhan; ‘Matt Aana’ by Rekha Bhardwaj; ‘Mann Na Rangaave’ by Rahul Ram; ‘Na Hosh Chale’ by Vishal Bhardwaj; ‘Bhuji Bhuji’ by Rahul Ram, and ‘Tanhaai’ by Sunidhi Chauhan.
‘Khufiya’ stars Tabu, Ali Fazal, Wamiqa Gabbi, Ashish Vidyarthi and Azmeri Haque Badhon.
It is based on true events and is based on a book ‘Escape to Nowhere’, written by the former Chief of the Counter Espionage Unit of R&AW, Amar Bhushan.
The story of love, loyalty, revenge, and betrayal is on Netflix.
