Kyun Rabba’ from ‘Badla’ is a melancholic track

The new track from Sujoy Ghosh’s ‘’ is called ‘’ and it features Amitabh Bachchan and . The song is composed by Amaal Mallik and sung by Malik. Speaking to BT about this new number, Amaal says, “I like to keep things simple, especially for a song that is set in a thriller like Badla, where the emotions need to be conveyed with complexity. So, I compose a melody first and then place the arrangements for the song. Here, we’ve opted for an alternate rock feel with an Indian soundscape.”

The song, which releases today, presents a point of view from Taapsee’s character and the composer feels that it has emotions that most boys and girls will associate with. He adds, “This song is the cry of a woman who is experiencing an unfortunate set of circumstances. While it may seem like a situational song, I am sure that people listening it to on the radio or on their phones, while they’re on a drive or all alone, will be able to reflect on moments from their own lives.”

The track has lyrics by Kumaar. Armaan Malik, who has lent his voice to the track, feels the lines are really powerful. The young singer says, “The main line in the song goes like ‘Kyun rabba iss kadar todeya ve’ and this is a track that talks about a lot of pain and melancholy. There’s a different kind of emotion to it, definitely not the typical romantic number that you’d associate with me. Whenever I get such an emotional track to sing, I switch off the lights in my studio to get into the zone. Being in the right frame of mind is important to deliver a song like Kyun Rabba.”

Both Amaal and Armaan are excited about working on a film that features Amitabh Bachchan. Amaal is still in a state of disbelief as he says, “It’s a big deal for me to be able to compose music for a film that features him. I had never imagined that I would be part of a film that is produced by Shah Rukh Khan and one that features actors like Taapsee and Amitji. I am a big fan of Sujoy’s films and it’s an absolute honour to compose two songs for this movie.” While Armaan has worked with the senior actor before, he still values this chance. He adds, “The first ever song that I recorded for was from Mr Bachchan’s film ‘Bhoothnath’ (2008). I have sung for his film as a 12-year-old kid and now, to sing for his movie again, as a grown-up feels fantastic. It’s like life has come a full circle and this is an opportunity that I really value a lot.”
