And the challenge for the director is to make the intricate complex and elitist world of ragas and gharanas accessible to the young. Sameer has taken on the challenge head on. The raga-imbued music score of ‘Jugalbandi’, the story of two musicians – the guru and shagird – would be done by Amit Trivedi.
Trivedi did the Punjab-flavoured score of Sameer Sharma’s ‘Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana’.
Says Sharma, “Nowhere in ‘Luv Shuv…’ could you tell that Punjabi music was given by Gujarati music composer. Amit Trivedi creates a sound that crosses borders. And he’s very knowledgeable about all kinds of music.So he’s my guy for the sound of Jugalbandi.”
The question that may haunt some out there is, how interested would today’s average youngsters be in classical Indian music?
Sameer Sharma, whose first-cousin Neema is married to Ustad Amjad Ali Khan’s son, has grown up amidst classical sounds.
Sameer has an answer. “We make too many presumptions and suppositions about the tastes of youngsters. Shastriya sangeet is not the punjee(property) of the elite . We need to bring it to a contemporary platform without diluting it.”
Sameer intends to mix traditional Hindustani classical sounds with western sounds.
“I don’t want Jugalbandi to be restricted only to classical music. I’d also like to bring elements of jazz, etc into the range of the film’s theme. Amit Trivedi is well equipped for this,” says Sameer.
