an old interview of Himeshji don't think its been posted


By Suhel Johar


Himesh is the son of veteran Gujarati musician and music director Vipin Reshammiya. Though he had music in his genes, his first professional venture was not musical: Himesh began his career as a producer of Gujarati serials. Later, he moved on the national network and did Hindi serials. In his serials, he wrote stories and screenplays. But with his second soap in Hindi, 'Andaz', Himesh decided to compose the music and the title song too. The Kumar Sanu- rendered 'Andaz' number still ranks among the most popular serial, title songs. Himesh subsequently did the music of his own serials like 'Amar Prem', 'Aashiqui' and 'Aangan'. Today he is one of the few composers who consistently churn out chart-busters. From 'Odh Li Chunariya' in 'Pyaar Kiya To Darna Kya' to 'Nikaamma...' in KyaDil NeKaha to 'Mirchi...' and 'Boys Are Best...,' in 'Chura Liya Hai Tumne', Himesh Reshammiya has proved he is one of the best. Himesh owes his passion for music to his father, Vipin Reshammiya, who introduced electronic music in films. The young composer promises to deliver hits after hits.

Does the failure of many films having your compositions affect your work?

Maybe, but my role is like that of an opening batsman. The promos of the films start with my music. I have consistently delivered hit music. It has earned an overflow for all the music companies. I have done my job. As for the films not doing well, there are a multitude of reasons. The industry is going through a bad phase. I have been flooded with offers. Of the seven film scores that did well last year, four were mine.

Were you disappointed for not getting award for 'Humraaz'?

'Humraaz' had a total of 18 nominations and the music had five nominations. That itself was quite an achievement. Watch out for my forthcoming music. It is far superior to the one I scored last year.

Tell us about it?

To begin with, there is the Ajay Devgan-Abhishek Bachchan-Bipasha Basu- starrer 'Zameen', which is a patriotic film. There's 'Tere Naam' directed by Satish Kaushik and starring Salman Khan, Padmalaya Telefilms' 'Ishq Hai Tumse' with Dino-Bipasha, 'Bisaat' starring Esha-Zayed and Ritesh Deshmukh, and two untitled films. These films bring out the versatility in me. 'Tere Naam' has pure Indian ethnic melodies, which will get me a lot of critical and commercial acclaim. 'Bisaat' is a thriller-cum-love story and has some really fresh and youthful songs, while 'Zameen' has a completely different sound. One number from the film is sure to strike a chord with listeners as it is on the lines of 'Vande Mataram...' The title track of 'Ishq Hai Tumse' will be a chart-buster. An item song is a total blend of ethnic and experimental music and a fusion of east and west. It's a special number on coffee.

What kind of music do you like to compose and which is your best effort?

click for larger view
I like to compose music, which has soul in it. I prefer films with romance. It enables me to come out with fresh youthful numbers and a new sound. However, the selection of notes is done according to a bandish, which takes care of the melody. I am very passionate about music and this passion found expression in 'Humraaz'. There I used raga Aheer in the title song, 'Sanam Mere Humraaz', Bhairavi in 'Tune Zindgi Mein Aake' and Ambarajni in sad notes. Of all, this film satisfies me most as I utilized my training in Indian classical music, though not to the fullest.

Isn't your music, though catchy, repetitive?

I don't agree. It's not repetitive. Yes, it has my chhaap. Any old composer like Laxmikant-Pyarelal had a particular style. Every film scored by them had at least two songs reflecting their style. There are certain musical notes that a music director loves, but uses it smartly depending on the situation in the film. In that sense, my style is evident in my songs. I am happy that I could achieve this feat in a short time.

Which of your forthcoming movie is close to your heart?

The music of 'Zameen' is to my taste. 'Tere Naam' too is something that I am proud of, because each song is meaningful and the music is very ethnic, like the title track of 'Pyaar Kiya To Darna Kya'.

How do you cope up with the pressure in your job?

There is a lot of pressure on a young music director like me. On the one hand, some shooting is going on where a song has to be picturised. On the other, impatient producers want the song to be hurried through. If a singer takes long in capturing the notes, we are asked to change the singer and pick up those who would deliver best in shortest possible time. Melody is the greatest casualty in such situations. Hence, the most important thing is that songs should be accepted commercially.

Himesh Reshammiya who whipped up such a frenzy of interest as a judge on Sa Re Ga Ma Pa will be back this week on the earlier music contest's new avatar Ek Main Aur Ek Tum.

"It was like a home-coming for him," said the disernibly excited show-director Gajendra Singh after the recording. "Himesh is as charged and revved-up on Ek Main Aur Ek Tu this week as he used to be on Sa Re Ga Ma Pa. He encouraged the contestants by praising them profusely rather than being uneccesarily stingy with compliments."

It should be mentioned here that last week's star-judge Alka Yagnik seemed to be unnecessarily harsh in her judgement on all the female contestants on Ek Main…

Says Gajendra, "Himesh was a riot. He was so charged he enthused the participants."

Says Himesh, "I had a great time. To me being on Ek Main Aur Ek Tu seemed no different from Sa Re Ga Ma Pa. Some contestants were really good. I really enjoyed Twinkle-Biswas and Aishwarya-Ujjaini's performances."

Himesh even sings his Aap Ka Suroor tracks with these singing couples.

"To have them sing together in a compatible unit is not easy. I think the Sa Re Ga Ma participants who had to sing solo had it much easier. On Ek Main…the two singers have to match each other's scales and styles. That means they have to lose some of their singing identity to accommodate their partner. That isn't easy," explains Himesh.

One singing pair Raktima and Vishwanath gets eliminated this week. "Due to Vishwanath's misconduct last week they lost out on a lot of votes," says Gajendra Singh. "Our audiences aren't into vulgar antics."
