Mumbai, June 7 (IANS): Bollywood music composer duo Javed Khan and Mohsin Shaikh, popularly known as Javed-Mohsin, talk about their recent title track by Abhimanyu Dassani, Shirley Sethia and Shilpa Shetty-starring ‘Nikamma’.
The track “Nikamma” is a recreation of Himesh Reshammiya’s hit track in the early 2000s with Tushar Kapoor. Composers Javed and Mohsin had made it clear that they would just use the track’s hook line and compose the rest of the song in their own style.
Commenting on the same, Javed says, “The creators had taken the rights to the track ‘Nikamma’ which was supposed to be recreated. So we knew we were recreating a super hit track by Himesh Reshammiya sir but we wanted to do it Javed-Mohsin way. .”
Mohsin adds, “We just took the melody hook and decided to create a new song with a new ‘mukhda’ and ‘antara’. Dev Negi, Payal Dev and Deane Sequeira sang the track and the Danish lyrics brilliantly. Sabri are on We’re glad people are enjoying the track.
“It’s our first recreation, so in doing this the only thing we kept in mind is that we’re going to do it our own way with a new melody and just use the hook line and design it a new way,” shares Javed.
Javed-Mohsin also composed another track for Nikamma.
“Our second track from the movie ‘Ab Meri Baari Aayi’ is a great song with rap parts included. Farhad Bhiwandiwala sang it and the lyrics are written by Danes Sabri and Sabbir Khan.”
“The briefing given for this song was that they wanted a high energy action theme song that includes rap and portrays aggression. The song is already part of the trailer and people love the energy of it. C It’s the theme music and we have great guitar energy in it, you’ll also hear broken beats with lots of bass and it’s an important track in the movie,” Mohsin concludes.
Previously, Javed-Mohsin composed tracks like ‘Meri Wali Ding Dang’ from ‘Munna Michael’, ‘Pal’ from Jalebi, ‘Teri Bhabhi’ from ‘Coolie No 1’ and their recent hit ‘Kabhhi Tumhhe’ from ‘Shershaah’ .
