Rumy Jafry, director of ‘Chehre’: movies have no meaning without music
Mumbai, August 23 (IANS): The title track for ‘Chehre’, with megastar Amitabh Bachchan, which was composed with musicians from Prague, was dropped on Monday. Director Rumy Jafry is thrilled and has said that movies don’t make sense without music.
The composing duo Vishal-Shekhar gave the musical touch to Amitabh Bachchan and Emraan Hashmi-starrer. The two had come up with a poem recited by Amitabh for the title song of ‘Chehre which he coordinated with a total of 107 musicians.
Sharing his work with Vishal-Shekhar, Jafry said, “Movies don’t make sense without music. If we go back in time, movies didn’t have dialogue but had music. This is a mysterious thriller, your music has to be bold and precise. In view of this, we have collectively decided to board Vishal-Shekhar because who else but them? “
Jafry is known to have directed films such as “Life Partner” and “Gali Gali Chor Hai”. He also wrote dialogues for films such as “Mujhse Shaadi Karoge” and “Om Jai Jagdish”, among others.
Film producer Anand Pandit said Vishal and Shekhar composed the title track for ‘Chehre’ beautifully with 107 musicians from Prague.
“Their focus, dedication and willingness to produce something moving using the instruments are simply commendable. On the other hand, this is the first time after ‘Silsila’ and ‘Agneepath’ that Amitabhji has recited a poem in a movie. As an Amitabhji fan and producer of ‘Chehre’, I feel blessed because not many people have this privilege, “he added.
‘Chehre’ is a mysterious thriller, which also stars Krystle D’Souza, Rhea Chakraborty, Siddhanth Kapoor, Annu Kapoor, Dhritiman Chatterjee and Raghubir Yadav.
The film has Amitabh playing a lawyer, while Emraan plays a business tycoon.
Produced by Anand Pandit Motion Pictures and Saraswati Entertainment Private Limited, the film is set to hit theaters on August 27.
