“Knowledge gives you longevity as a music composer” – Vikram Montrose – Planet Bollywood https://russjohnsonmusic.com/knowledge-gives-you-longevity-as-a-music-composer-vikram-montrose-planet-bollywood/ Wed, 21 Sep 2022 06:34:39 +0000 https://russjohnsonmusic.com/knowledge-gives-you-longevity-as-a-music-composer-vikram-montrose-planet-bollywood/ Vikram Montrose had a very interesting journey as a composer in the Hindi film industry.

Vikram Montrose had a very interesting journey as a composer in the Hindi film industry. The Sanjay Dutt produced ‘Hasmukh Pighal Gaya’, which was the first film he worked on, never saw the light of day. A few years later, ‘Kar Har Maidaan Fateh’ by ‘Sanju’ by Rajkumar Hirani became an anthem for many and opened several doors for Montrose in the industry. Since then, the young composer has worked on several films including ‘Prassthanam’, ‘Commando 3’, ‘Mere Desh Ki Dharti’ and ‘Liger’.

Recently he won the Filmfare Award for Best Music for ‘Shershaah’. Vikram shared the award with Tanishk Bagchi, Jasleen Royal, Javed-Mohsin and B Praak, his fellow film composers. For Sidharth Malhotra-Kiara Advani’s starring biographical war drama, Vikram had composed “Jai Hind Ki Senaa,” a soaring patriotic number.

In this interview, Vikram talks about his journey in the music industry, popular tracks, the special equation with Sanjay Dutt, the importance of formal training and more.

‘Attack’ and ‘The Liger Hunt Theme’ are the two tracks you composed for ‘Liger’. You have also collaborated with Azeem Dayani and Dharma Productions before. How was the process of creating these two tracks for the film?

I am lucky for all the opportunities I have received so far. I’m lucky to be part of ‘Shershaah’ and now Liger. I thank Mr. Azeem Dayani for taking me on board for these two projects. The best thing about working with Azeem is the ease and freedom you get as an artist. The brief is straight to the point and he is always sure of what he wants. He is open to new styles or approaches and has complete confidence in the composer. It always makes the process easy. By working with him, an artist can dive without fear. And that’s what motivated me to create songs like ‘Jai Hind Ki Senaa’, ‘Liger Hunt’ and ‘Attack’.

What do you think of the tendency to have several composers on the same film? You have worked on many films of this type, but you have also composed full-fledged albums for a few projects like “Mere Desh Ki Dharti”.

There are different models of musical composition for a film. The regular model is when there is one composer who composes the entire album, then there is the model where multiple composers are brought on board, but is used selectively depending on the film. For me, both have their own merits. Music is one of the key tools for movies and sometimes having a diverse soundtrack for a movie from various composers and their styles works well for that. Then there are movies that require a certain type of sound that is best delivered by a single composer.

Ultimately, it all comes down to the filmmaker and what they think is best for the movie. Personally, I like being part of both configurations. The film’s story and characters will always be the most important part of my song-making process. Sometimes when you have no idea what’s going on in the movie and you just put in a song, there’s a huge possibility that it will backfire. The song should complement the film’s narrative. I always try to make the song contribute to the narrative in some way.

As a child, you learned to play the piano and the guitar. In your opinion, how important is formal training for a musician?

It is very important. Knowledge gives you longevity as a music composer. Things are changing faster than ever. Learning the trade always gives you an added advantage. Whether it’s learning an instrument or the theory of music making or the technical and marketing aspects of music, you need to be open to learning new things. I was lucky to have the opportunity to learn piano, guitar and drums from an early age. The best decision of my life, however, was to learn music production. The music learning process never stops. Currently, I am learning to play the violin. I strongly believe that education always elevates your craft.

The two songs you composed for Sanju’s soundtrack were extremely popular. ‘Kar Har Maidaan Fateh’ is a song that people from different walks of life keep listening to regularly for inspiration. Explain to us the process of creating the song.

“Sanju” was special in more ways than one. ‘Kar Har Maidan Fateh’ was a dream song for me. I was able to create this due to the guidance and motivation I received from Mr. Sanjay Dutt. I was then very new to the industry. I will be forever grateful to Mr. Rajkumar Hirani for believing in me.

“Kar Har Maidan Fateh” has motivated and inspired people in a way that makes me emotional. I feel blessed to see the kind of impact the song has created. I hope I will have more opportunities to create songs like these. Understanding Mr. Sanjay Dutt’s extraordinary journey helped me create ‘Kar Har Maidaan Fateh’. I still feel that the heart and soul of ‘Kar Har Maidaan Fateh’ were the beautifully written lyrics by Shekhar Astitwa i. I learned a lot working on the song.

Hasmukh Pighal Gaya’, ‘Prrasthanam’, ‘Torbaaz’ – you had a long association with Sanjay Dutt.

Mr. Sanju is family. I learned so much from him. I continue to learn many important lessons about music and life from him. Mr. Sanju has impeccable musical taste and he made me discover musical genres that I didn’t even know existed. His advice completely transformed my music. He was always there for me and guided me and motivated me to become better and to be humble.

What do you do next?

There is an interesting line up. I can’t wait to introduce a totally different soundscape. There’s also a different style of music that I like to do and I really want to introduce it to people through my own company.

Described by many as India’s most versatile composer and songwriter, Mithoon is known for his soulful and soulful music. He is probably the only music composer who also writes his own songs, which makes him an ideal musical icon. In fact, in 2012, his hit track, “Tum Hi Ho” from the movie “Aashiqui 2,” set a new box office benchmark.

With films like ‘Ek Villain’, ‘Baaghi 2’, ‘Malang’, ‘Khuda Haafiz’, ‘Shivaay’, ‘Ki And Ka’, ‘Hate Story 2’ and ‘Hamari Adhuri Kahani’ among others to his credit, he has now cemented his position as a leader in the music and entertainment industry.

As of 2022, Mithoon, who believes “music is his calling”, has worked on several films, including “Khuda Hafiz 2”, “HIT: The First Case”, “Shamshera”, and “Ek Villain Returns”.

While ‘Shamshera’ exploded at the box office, his music for the song ‘Ji Huzoor’ impressed everyone. The film marked its first association with Yash Raj Films and it reinvented itself with thrilling background music.


When asked if he felt discouraged that the film wasn’t doing well, Mithoon told us, “Obviously I was disappointed because I don’t see myself as an independent composer, but I am a film composer. With ‘Shamshera’ too, I worked closely with director Karan Malhotra and YRF to understand the emotion behind the film. It’s selfish for me to only focus on the song ‘Ji Huzoor’. The kind of music I composed for the film was something new, working with different instruments and singers, so you can’t take that away from me.

Meanwhile, born into a family of musicians, Mithoon has always showcased his family lineage in his award-winning work. Talking about how his childhood shaped him as a music composer, Mithoon said, “The kind of compliments I get from my background music is because of the exposure I got in my childhood, and this is where my lineage or viraasat comes into place. ”

Last but not least, he hopes that no matter what, the epitome of Bollywood music will always be loved. “I really believe in Hindi cinema music, it’s part of our DNA. I’ll never fade away and playtime will never last long. It always has. But if there’s good music through talented artists, there is also too much mediocrity. It’s the eternal fight. We, as artists, have to decide which side we are on,” he signed.

Then we’ll soon see him back in the spotlight with movies like “Gadar 2: The Katha Continues” in his chat.

Roping in Big B as a music composer, director R Balki said, “It all happened very impromptu. I had asked Amitji to see the movie. (Chup). He called me after seeing it and played me a tune on his piano, saying that was how the movie and the characters made him feel. He was deeply moved. I was overjoyed. When I asked if I could use the song, he immediately gave it to the film. Today, Chup is the first film to feature Amitithe official composition as the score of the credits.”

R Balki and Amitabh have already collaborated on several major projects, including Paa, Cheeni Kumand Shamitabh.

Hush, an upcoming psycho-thriller film starring Sunny Deol, Dulquer Salmaan, Pooja Bhatt and Shreya Dhanwanthary, is set to hit theaters on September 23, 2022.

Balki’s teaser Chup has sparked everyone’s interest and has already created massive anticipation around the movie, leaving everyone wondering what the fuss is about.

Billed as a romantic psychopathic thriller, the film would be a tribute to Guru Dutt and his 1959 classic Kaagaz Ke Phool.

Chup: Revenge of the ArtistThe screenplay and dialogues were co-written by Balki, critic-turned-writer Raja Sen and Rishi Virmani. Co-produced by Pranab Kapadia and Anirudh Sharma, this one features music by composer Amit Trivedi and Vishal Sinha as director of photography (DoP).

Meanwhile, Amitabh will next be seen in Goodbye, which will be released on October 5, 2022, alongside Rashmika Mandanna and Neena Gupta.

Amitabh Bachchan, who has sung songs for films such as Holi Khele Raghuveera, Ekla Chalo Reand Main Yahan Tu Wahan, attributes his musical talent to his father, the late poet Harivansh Rai Bachchan.

“The music that represents me, that I have the opportunity to explore and compose, comes from within. There is no formal education or experience. It just happens. I can’t I can’t help feeling that the strains of my father’s musical interest followed my genes and became part of my build. I have no other explanation for his presence,” Bachchan wrote on his blog. .

However, the actor also has some reservations.

“Music has remained an integral part of us all since our days when we learned to crawl. But its learning has spread through us. To this day, I ask many who have the blessing of notes, chords and voice, what it would take to be in their justice, in their sanctified court. They assure me that it is never too late.

Bombay, August 25: The upcoming ‘Chup’ film will mark veteran superstar Amitabh Bachchan’s debut as a music composer, director R Balki has leaked details as the film is set to be released on September 23.

The film is a romantic psychopathic thriller, a thought Balki had after ‘Cheeni Kum’ and decided to write it much later. The poster revealing the release date was released on Thursday.

Speaking of the same, Balki said, “‘Chup’ is special for more than one reason. For me, the main reason is that it marks Amitabh Bachchan’s official debut as a music composer.”

Big B and Balki have a long-standing association and the superstar has worked with him in almost all of his films.

The director then revealed how Big B’s musical composition debut went, “Amitji saw ‘Chup’ and played an instinctive original melody on his piano as he relived the movie. It was his way to express his feelings for the film, paying homage. This composition, his gift to the film, will be the final title of ‘Chup’. I don’t think there can be an artist whose sensibility can beat Bachchan’s and let ‘Chup’ have his touch!”

The film stars Sunny Deol, Dulquer Salmaan, Shreya Dhanwanthary and Pooja Bhatt. The original story is by R Balki, with the screenplay and dialogue co-written by R Balki, critic-turned-writer Raja Sen and Rishi Virmani.

The film was produced by late stock investor Rakesh Jhunjhunwala, Anil Naidu, Dr Jayantilal Gada (PEN Studios) and Gauri Shinde. (IANS)
