Mumbai: Music composer Ismail Darbar known for churning soulful and melodious compositions in the past will now be returning with the highly anticipated upcoming film ‘Bhoomi’ starring Sanjay Dutt.
Musician Ismail Darbar, who marks his return to the Hindi film industry after five years, will be giving the background score for Omung Kumar’s ‘Bhoomi.’
He is best-known for his phenomenal compositions in movies like ‘Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam’ and ‘Devdas.’
He had last given the music for Subhash Ghai’s ‘Kaanchi’.
When Ismail Darbar was asked about what has taken him so long, he says, “I wait for the right film to come along. When I saw the rushes of ‘Bhoomi’, I was so touched and I told Sandeep Singh (producer) and Omung Kumar (director) that I would do the background score. I have known the two for more than 15 years and they understand the kind of movies I enjoy giving the music for. Music is my soul, it’s in my blood and ‘Bhoomi’ touched the right chord.”
Bhushan Kumar adds, “It’s wonderful to have Ismail ji working with us. ‘Bhoomi’ needs his genius sensibilities.”
Says Producer Sandeep Singh, “I have worked with Ismail sahab in the past and loved his music sense. He is a legend and the industry needs his contribution desperately. I am so happy that he agreed to do the background score for us.”
‘Bhoomi’ is an emotional and sensitive revenge drama that explores the relationship between a father and daughter.
Produced by T-Series and Legend Studios, ‘Bhoomi’ releases worldwide on September 22.
