After “Kabhi Kabhie” and “Silsila”, Amitabh Bachchan’s baritone for “Chehre” is booming

On Twitter, Amitabh Bachchan spoiled his legions of fans this morning with the first glimpse of his upcoming film “Chehre’s Majestic Theme Song”. In a black and white montage overlaid with breathtaking VFX, Bachchan recites a rousing poem with the powerful punchline “Jism chale jayenge, zinda rahenge chehre”. Veteran producer Anand Pandit has been a fan of Bachchan’s oratorical skills since bringing the poetry of Sahir Ludhiyanvi and Javed Akhtar to life in classics such as “Kabhi Kabhie” and “Silsila”.

He says, “The poem is so well written by Rumy Jafry and it sums up the powerful theme of the film. The tension and the mysterious elements of the film are wonderfully combined in the film music. In April of this year Vishal-Shekhar recorded the orchestral version of the title track with 107 musicians in Prague. Shekhar Ravjiani composed the melody beautifully. And now Amit ji has lent his incomparable voice to give the track a whole new dimension. He is a perfectionist and you only have to hear the title track to be mesmerized by every intonation, pause and intonation. His voice was made for poetry. “Chehre” is a mystery thriller by Rumy Jafry that also stars Emran Hashmi, Annu Kapoor, Krystle D’Souza, Dhritiman Chatterjee, Raghubir Yadav, Siddhanth Kapoor and Rhea Chakraborty.
