The Indian National song, originally written and composed by Bankim Chandra Chatterjee and later sung by veteran singers like Lata Mangeshkar and AR Rahman will now be converted into a rock version. The song will be composed in a rock version for the bilingual international film Gandhi To Hitler (Dear Friend Hitler in International version).
After analysing the inclination for rock music among the Indian youth, the makers have decided to make a rock version of Vande Mataram. Associate producer Pallavi Mishra, who has re-written the cult song, views that the national song and language has lost a grip among today's youth.
Therefore she could not refrain herself from translating the legendary composition into her mother tongue in order to cater to the likes of the Gen-X Indians. Bensen Baby, Aman P and Vasundhara have sung the track and the music has been scored by Aman and Bensen. The music of the film is set in the backdrop of the Second World War. The film is set to release on July 29.
Remember the westernised hippie form of the cult song 'Raghupati Raghav Raja Ram' in the film Kuch Kuch Hota Hai? Well, it was after that when the song became a household music for everyone all over the world. This kind of desi-vedesi mix is going to take place once again with another cult song, 'Vande Mataram'.
