Music composer Amaal Mallik has composed the music for the song ‘Tum Aaoge’ from the recent movie ‘Bell Bottom’. In an exclusive conversation with IANS, Mallik shared his experience where he said, the song ‘Tum Aaoge’ is one of my most special songs and one of my best works I have done for film music. I’m glad that something as pure, honest and different as ‘Tum Aaoge’ was selected for a movie like ‘Bell Bottom.’
The song is sung by Amaal’s brother Armaan, and the lyrics were written by Rashmi Virag. “I don’t think a song like this has been in a movie for a long time. It is a beautiful tribute to the Armed Forces and to our heroes who defend us all the time at the border, taking care of the country instead of worrying about their families ”.
Amaal Mallik added: “It’s great to be a part of a movie that manages to stand tall, get released in theaters, get rave reviews and get the box office to work as well. It is an incredible feeling to be a part of history ”.
‘Bell Bottom’ also marks Amaal Mallik’s first collaboration with his father Daboo Mallik for the song ‘Tum Yun Hi Kabhi’.
Mallik has been a part of the Hindi music industry for 7 years. “Sometimes I don’t think 7 years have already passed as a songwriter in the industry. I am glad that I have managed to do a variety of work around many different themes, to achieve music that has been fashionable and at the same time moving and emotional. “
In 2015, Amaal Mallik composed two songs for the movie ‘Roy’. The song ‘Sooraj Dooba Hain’, sung by Arijit Singh and Aditi Singh Sharma, was the biggest hit of that year and earned him a Filmfare Award for Best Music Director. “Also, I introduced various genres to the Indian music scene through my songs like ‘Suraj Dooba Hain’, ‘Sau Asmaan’, etc. I think the advent of electronic music happened in India through these songs.”
The young music composer also made a one-of-a-kind international collaboration with pop sensation Dua Lipa. “I am glad to be someone who represents the next generation of Indian music and being one of the youngest composers to have performed with the Melbourne Orchestra so far, I recently collaborated with Dua Lipa. He loved my job and what I did for the Indian version of the song ‘Levitating’.
“These things are like very unlikely dreams and I obviously wanted them to happen one day in my life, but I never thought they would happen in such a beautiful way and at the beginning of my career. I think now I am managing to make a space for myself and I am happy to make the kind of music that I believe in. It’s also the kind of music that the audience believes in and when you get that kind of love, I think it makes your journey even more beautiful. “
Amaal’s next multilingual film is ‘Radhe Shyam’, starring Prabhas and Pooja Hegde.
