“Jab tak Gupt rahega, tab tak Rog rahega”, with this catchy tagline and a captivating trailer, SonyLIV’s upcoming show Dr. Arora- Gupt Rog Visheshagya has been creating waves. Audiences at all levels adored the world of Dr. Arora and his melodious music, which is sampled in the trailer.
Created by Imtiaz Ali, the show and its music promise to evoke a sense of nostalgia, a trip down memory lane like many of his previous films. Joining him once again on this musical journey is a former collaborator; poet and lyricist Irshad Kamil who is known for not arming his songs with heavy words, but letting them breathe and grow in music.
Speaking about the album, Irshad said; “Writing the lyrics to Dr. Arora was a delight not only because of the wonderfully talented people involved, but also because of the old world charm the show possesses. I hope the songs find the right chord with the audience.
The music for the five-song album was composed by renowned classical music maestro Niladri Kumar and renowned music director Sunny MR. A folk song was composed and performed by Sh. Narrottam Bain. Dr Arora’s background score was composed by Anand Bhaskar & Ajay Jayanthi and its title track by Ishaan Chhabra. Much like the show, the album packs a healthy dose of romance and nostalgia driven by memorable melodies.
Niladri Kumar, who has enchanted audiences with his music in the past, composed two melodious songs in the album – ‘Mehram’, sung by Arijit Singh and ‘Khaalipan’, sung by Abhay Jodhpurkar and Meenal Jain.
Talking about the album, Niladri said; “Music weaves its own story and has always been an integral part of a film. I’m glad to see it gain prominence now in web series as well. Dr Arora is a very refreshing storyline and I’m thrilled to be a part of it. The two songs I composed for the show have different flavors – ‘Mehram’ sung by Arijit Singh is one of those special melodies which also defies the known grammar of song structures and ‘Khaalipan’ sung by Abhay Jodhpurkar and Meenal has a mix of traditional film music and contemporary modern elements. Working with Imtiaz and Irshad is something I enjoy and hope that, like our previous collaborations, these songs will also resonate with listeners.
Sunny MR, the famed music director composed “Bewafa Mashooqa”, the show’s trailer song which garnered instant praise and adulation. It was sung by Ravvi Mishhra. He also composed a romantic song “Ishq Ishq” sung by Shloke Lal.
Speaking about his experience on the show, Sunny MR said; “The show is set in the 90s, one of the golden eras of Hindi film music. My songs are an ode to that decade and its musical philosophy.
The show also includes a folk song “Bedardi Saiyyan”, written, composed and sung by Sh. Narrottam Bain.
