Helicopter Ela album: Swanand Kirkire pens three different emotions

MUMBAI: Bollywood lyricist, Swanand Kirkire, who has penned three songs for Helicopter Ela has brought to life three different emotions in them. The song-writer tells the story of each song in an exclusive interview.

Speaking about Mama Ki Parchai, Swanand said, “It is a fun song, which everybody will relate to because it is written from a son’s point of view, whose mother is constantly hovering over him. We all know how our moms are constantly omnipresent in our life in some way or the other and always keep an eye on whether we have eaten or what we have eaten. Hence, the song is about this emotion only.”

Sung by Ronit Sarkar, Mama Ki Parchai has garnered over five million views on YouTube.

On Yaadon Ki Almaari, which is sung by Palomi Ghosh, Kirkire said, “Yaadon Ki Almaari is a simple, true, nostalgic number portrayed on Kajol’s character, who is supposedly a singer, who had once made a song for her album. I am already getting a lot of appreciation for the lines of the song that say - ‘Ek wallet hai leather ka, jismein rehti thi kangaali’. They tell you that if you peep in your closet, you will find a lot of memories.”

Yaadon Ki Almaari has garnered over eighth million views on YouTube.

Swanand’s third song, Dooba Dooba is yet to drop online. But the lyrics writer has a thought to share on it also. “Dooba Dooba is a very beautiful song about falling in love for the first time. In the song, Kajol’s character is shown falling in love,” he revealed about the song.

When asked about the challenges, he faced while penning down three different emotions in three different songs, Swanand Kirkire said, “It was challenging because it was a different kind of film. There have been movies made on a father-son relationship, but we have never seen a movie made on the mother-son bond. Also, the interesting part is that, it is a story of today’s age. So, we had to be very contemporary and speak the language with everybody would relate to. Also, the young boy, in the film, is seventeen-eighteen years old, so I had to pen songs, imagining like they were actually happening in his life.”

Swanand, who had a great experience of writing lyrics for Helicopter Ela, also was delighted to collaborate with Pradeep Sarkar once again. “I really enjoyed working with dada after a long time and with Amit Trivedi of course. My career almost started with him as after Hazaaron Khwaishein Aisi my first big film was Parineeta that established me as a music director in the industry. I later did three films with dada, excluding Mardaani.”
Lastly, speaking about Helicopter Ela, Swanand signed off, “It is a very nice, heart warming, mother and son story.”

Starring Kajol, Riddhi Sen, Tota Roy Chowdhury and Neha Dhupia, Helicopter Ela is slated to release on 12 October 2018. The movie is directed by Pradeep Sarkar. The music direction is done by Amit Trivedi.
