In the movie, Symphony, there is a beautiful song called Pannimathiyey Punarum, Thalirambal Poove. Sung by Chita and Yesudas, this song has very less orchestration and stands out for the melodious voices of the singers. Similarly there is another song, Sughamo (Remix) sung by Sujatha and Vidhu Pratap with less orchestra and a haunting tune. The composer of this song is a new music director called Deepak Dev.
He started his career with the movie Chronic Bachelor directed by Siddique (of Siddique-Lal fame). All the songs were beautiful, but the one we liked was Swayamvara Chandrike, Swarnamani Meghame sung by Jayachandran and Sujatha. Now in an interview Deepak says that director Siddique was the reason why he came into movies.
He had almost given up on his musical career, soon after completing his graduation, “as nothing exciting was happening in my career.” But, as fate would have it, every time he tried to sell off his keyboard, it came back to him, “as the guys who bought it couldn’t cough up the money that they had promised me. And soon after the third time it happened, the Siddique-Lal duo called me to join their group for their shows in the United States. They wanted me to render some music to fill the time in-between programmes. Eventually, it was those tunes that prompted Siddique to choose me to compose the music for `Chronic Bachelor,’ my first film,” recalls Deepak.[HITTING the right notes]
