Amaal Mallik’s The Goggle Song from Mubarakan was released today. Featuring Sonu Nigam, Armaan Malik as well as Neeti Mohan and Tulsi Kumar, the wedding dance track has a very cool folkish touch to it as well as an urban vibe.
The composer is famously known for his super hit tracks like Kar Gayi Chul, Sooraj Dooba Hai and has now come up with another dance number which is perfect for wedding! The Goggle Song has a clubby dubstep meets Bhangra approach along with a simple Punjabi melody with quirky Lyrics by the very talented Kumaar.
In the film, Arjun Kapoor plays two characters and that presented an interesting challenge for the composer. Commenting on his composition thought, Amaal commented, “I really needed someone to go and complement Sonu Ji’s vocals and I tried various textures. Something in me was never sure as to I would finalise the other voice of Arjun Kapoor. I had Sonu Nigam as one, needed a another voice and after trying a few voices Arjun, Anees Sir & I zeroed In on Armaan. During the dub I heard how he had tweaked his texture to nature of this song. I knew I had my second voice. The audience is going to hear him like never before! You’ll also hear my voice lingering in the hook lines.”
Another cool fact is that Amaal made sure that the Dhols are recorded live, so the wedding feel and energy is felt in the song and remains intact.
Amaal also said, “I believe a song needs to produced in a way, that when you close your eyes, you can imagine the video. That’s always the path I follow. When we locked Goggle’s production, I could picture a wedding & how the song would be shot. That was all I needed to feel assured.”
Amaal Mallik will next be composing the music for the Golmaal 4 series.
