Musical rebel from Dev D to Manmarziyaan, Amit Trivedi and director Anurag Kashyap has consistently worked their magic. Dev D, Trivedi’s debut album for film music, garnered media attention and radio airplay for its distinctive and uncommon sound. With Kashyap, the composer expands on their fourth collaboration.
When these two powerhouses work together, it’s always memorable! The soundtrack to Kashyap’s most recent film, “Almost Pyaar with DJ Mohabbat,” inspired by the need to continuously experiment and provide moviegoers with something new, is groundbreaking.
Amit Trivedi and poet Shellee spent four years creating the music album, producing songs for every mood and offering a unique perspective on contemporary relationships and youthful love. The group used the lockout to experiment with many concepts and versions until they finally discovered a brand-new sound since they didn’t want to compromise on any aspect of the music-making process. To comprehend the slang of today’s youth, lyricist Shellee spent time with his son and Kashyap’s daughter in addition to letting go of his inner poet.
All praise for Amit says Anurag Kashyap,” Amit and I go a long way, it has been a friendship of 15 years, and every time we have collaborated, he has given me some of the unforgettable melodies, and this one is no exception. Amit has put his heart and soul into the album of this movie, and his extreme patience with me in every situation is what I adore the most.
Further, he added, “ Amit and Shellee spent 4 years working on the music because it’s a very different world to belong to lyrically. It was hard work as Shellee had to let go of the poet in him and sat with his son and my daughter to use the lingo of today’s generation.”
Says Amit Trivedi, “Anurag always has a distinct vision for his films. Dev D was a turning point in my career. Still, we approach each film from a fresh lens and attempt to crack something new with every collaboration, and that’s exactly what audiences can expect from the ‘Almost Pyaar with DJ Mohabbat’ album.”
This year’s presentation of “Almost Pyaar with DJ Mohabbat,” starring Alaya F and debutant Karan Mehta, took place in Jemaa El Fna Square in Marrakech. The movie was screened along with other incredible movies by luminaries like Guillermo Del Toro, Paul Schrader, and James Gray. The movie, whose release date is February 3rd 2023, is billed as Anurag Kashyap’s homage to contemporary love.
