Passionate But Not Greedy!

Untitled-2A (1)Music composer Vipin Patwa tells Komal Sharma all about his recent film and undying passion for music

The music-composer of the recently released Laali Ki Shaadi Mein Laaddoo Deewana (LKSMLD), Vipin Patwa, has not only composed a few songs for the film but has also lent his voice for a few tracks in the film. What’s more, he bagged this project accidentally! “I have a journalist friend who heard about this project and he recommended me. I met the entire cast and crew of the film, and when they heard my composition, they immediately said ‘yes’ to me. I am blessed I didn’t have to struggle to get any of my past projects either,” he says.

For one of the songs in LKSMLD, Patwa has collaborated with Rahat Fateh Ali Khan. On his experience working with the maestro, the composer shares, “It was an amazing experience and the best thing is that the song Rog jaane was recorded over Skype. It was such an honour to work with him.”

On how he briefed the singers, Patwa reveals, “It was easy to brief singers and make them understand my requirements. Even I tried to sing songs in that way so that the singers would better understand what I was saying. That was half the job done.”

Talking about his musical journey, Patwa says, “If your family isn’t from a music background, it is difficult to make them understand your passion. That’s why it was tough to convince my folks. Still, all they said was that I should complete my education and then I would be free to do whatever I wanted to do.”

The composer says his passion for music goes back to when he was very young. “I gradually started singing for bands, but there was a catch – I had to pay them. Yes! An artiste gets paid for his performance but, in my case, I used to bribe the bands I worked with so that they wouldn’t tell my family about my singing.” Since he began his journey as a singer, why doesn’t he sing much? “Singing was never primarily on the cards. I just went with the flow. Yes, if I do feel that the song is not sung well and the singer is not doing justice to it, I would take the initiative to sing. However, I believe there are many singers and they can lend their voices to my compositions. I am not greedy that I have to snatch opportunities from others.” Next, Patwa will be working on Aur Devas and a few more projects, which he says he cannot talk about right now.
