Sparsh vocalist Soham Pathak composes his second Marathi film

MUMBAI: Soham Pathak, lead vocalist of the band Sparsh, is currently composing for his sophomore Marathi film, 'Paisa Paisa'. In addition to composing three songs for the film, Pathak will also compose the background score. The film is a remake of a Malayalam film and is directed by a Malayalam director, Jojijob.

For all three songs, Pathak has roped in singers who are unfamiliar with singing in that genre. The first song, called 'Pangharu Nabhaas Ye' is an unconventional romantic duet sung by Neeti Mohan and Adarsh Shinde, with lyrics by Shivkumar Dhake. Describing the track, Pathak said, "It is an easy listening, progressive song with melodic arrangements and different musical layers." He encouraged Shinde to experiment his vocal skills with this song.

The second track- 'Na Koni Dushta Yete' has a traditional Marathi background to it. "It sounds like a preaching by the local 'Vasudev' waking up people of the village in the morning and advising them to refrain from judging others," he said of the track. The song features vocals by celebrated Marathi singer Avdoot Gupte with words by veteran lyricist Shrirang Godbole. About the music of the song, Pathak said that it has strong elements of hip-hop, beat-boxing and electronic tones that blend well.

The final song in the movie is called 'He Ratra Majhi Maitrin'. "We have not yet finalised on a singer for it, but it will most likely be a Hindi vocalist," Pathak said. Of the song worded by him, he added, "It sounds like a folk rock song that comes from Texas and is inspired by the works of Kings of Leon."

For the score, Pathak wanted it to be "very indie with no cinematic score". There will also be elements of metal and dub-step infused in the score. The film is written by Sachin Barekar and stars Sachit Patil, Spruha Joshi and Milind Shinde as the antagonist.

'Paisa Paisa' is expected to hit theatres in summer 2015.
