It dates back to the era of India-Pakistan partition when the politics that followed, had an impact on people from both sides of the border. Mudh Baseba agreement was a part of that politics. Punjabi film “Mitti Na Pharol Jogiya” is based on the true story of a family that was torn apart by this agreement. The promo of the film looks very promising.Friday was the day for the film’s music release which indeed is the USP of the film and an important part of the subject’s treatment. A press conference was held at Hotel Shivalikview, Sector-17 where lead actors Kartar Cheema, Amann Grewal and none other than Japtej Singh, the young Milkha of Bhaag Milkha Bhaag were present.
This presentation of Ram Avtar Art Films has been produced by Ram Sidhu. The story, screenplay and direction have been done by Avtar Singh who has previously worked as the production head for Bollywood super hit Barfi! with director Anurag Basu. Avtar Singh told that Anurag Basu has actually mentored him for this project and he is sure that this will make an emotional connect with the audience. Producer Ram Sidhu said that the music of the film will surely carry our audience to that era and the melody will make them feel the pain of each character of the story.
The Chief Guest Milkha Singh was present on the occasion. He released the music of the film and said, the first thing of course is Japtej who is the USP of the film. I see my childhood in him so I am very attached to this talented boy. And secondly, the music is really soothing and certainly would be loved by people of every age and era.
The music has been composed by Desi Crew and Kannu Jimmy and Surjit Pattar, Shabdeesh, Bakhtabar Miyan, Bunty Bains, Happy Raikoti, Bachan Bedil and Vinder Nathu Mazra are the lyricists. Singers Kamal Khan, Kaur B, Javed Bashir, Nachattar Gill, Yaqoob Gill, Davinder Pal Singh and Surjeet Khan have lend their voices to the different sad, romantic and dance numbers of the film. The count totals to seven and the music rights are with Lokdhun.
A member from Desi Crew told that the history had to be fully explored before composing the songs of the film. We had long sittings with the director to sort out the real mood of the film so that the music comes out as effectively. Dinesh Kumar from Lokdhun said that associating with this film has been a great experience. The Punjabi audiences have already taken a different way and their taste for better films and music is developing.This film’s music would certainly be a treat for those ears.
Kartar Cheema is all excited to be a part of this film. He told that the music is really a help when such story is being depicted on the screen. The melody is certainly what this story needed and I congratulate the whole team for such beautiful music. Amann Grewal told that she herself considers the music of a particular film is as important as its story. And this time she is sure this music is going to attract many to the silver screen to watch this film. Young Japtej will again be seen in an Indo-Pak partition era based film and he seems quite confident about his role in the film.
