Sukhwinder Singh: The music of ‘Rangoon’ is like an opera
National Award-winning singer Sukhwinder Singh is all set to collaborate with filmmaker Vishal Bhardwaj yet again for his upcoming directorial ‘Rangoon’ and says that the music of the film is like an opera.
Starring Kangana Ranaut, Saif Ali Khan and Shahid Kapoor, ‘Rangoon’ is a war drama and music plays a large part of its screenplay. “Rangoon’ is a very large, musical film. The music of ‘Rangoon’ is like an opera,” Sukhwinder said.
The singer had earlier collaborated with Bhardwaj in marvels like ‘Omkara’, ‘Kaminey’, ‘Ishqiya’ and ‘Haider‘ . Praising the filmmaker, Sukhwinder said, “The best thing about Vishal Bhardwaj is that he himself is a writer, director and composer. The main content in the movie is the story, and the same way, composition is the main content in a film’s music… And Vishal has a great command on both of them.”
Speaking of the music of ‘Rangoon’, he adds, “It is extraordinary and very imaginative. The film director is the composer, so all his songs are a demand of story — they are not pushed into the movie. He is a fantastic music composer.”
