Alone Music Launch: Four Cheers!

The makers of the upcoming horror film Alone decided to celebrate 50,00,000 views of their trailer and also the music launch of their film amidst the media, to whom they also showcased four songs. Present at the music launch were Bipasha Basu, Karan Singh Grover, director Bhushan Patel, producers Kumar Mangat and Abhishek Pathak and music composers Mithoon, Jeet Gannguli, Ankit Tiwari and Raghav Sachchar. Here’s what happened at the event:

Ankit Tiwari on the music

When someone approaches us for a project, we show them songs from our bank and they end up getting finalised. So we don’t have to create new songs. But when Kumar ji (Mangat) called me for a meeting, he told me to create a new song based on the story line of the film. We came up with Katra katra, a love song.

Mithoon on the music

It was Bhushan Kumar who told me about Alone, and got me to meet Bhushan Patel, the director of the film. We clicked very well and together we created the song, Awara. Bhushan told me he didn’t want random songs and that every song was situation-based. The plot I was given was; a man takes a decision not to fall in love all over again but the situations makes him fall again in love. In the film, this applies to Karan Singh Grover’s character who is trying to work on his relationship. It was lovely composing music for this film.

Jeet Gannguli on the music

Chand aasmano se is a musical love song. I was very happy composing a song for this film as the entire team, from the actors, to the producers to the director, took an interest in the music. I must say that when the director of a film has an ear for music it is much easier to compose songs for the film. I love the way the song has been shot in Kerala which is looking outstanding in the film.

Bipasha Basu on the locations

The locations where we shot the film were outstanding. Now I realise why Kerala is such a popular holiday destination. The backwaters, the natural beauty of Kerela have been captured very well by the director.

Bhushan Patel on the music of the film

Indians are very emotional and we judge our emotions through songs. That’s why music is critical to Hindi films. Our film is just not a horror story, it’s also a love story of a couple who is trying to work it out. So the plots required songs based on melody. I want to thank all our composers who created an amazing album.

Karan Singh Grover on his favourite song

It’s hard to name just one song as I love all four of them.
