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'.
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.
