Shubha Mudgal croons 'Surmaae Shaam' for a feature film

MUMBAI: Renowned singer Shubha Mudgal has recently crooned, Surmaae Shaam, which is a melodious track for Hindi feature film, Evening Shadows.

Speaking about the song, Shubha Mudgal said, “I have very little experience of working for films, but I am delighted that Sridhar Rangayan and lyricist Saagar Gupta invited me to compose and sing for Evening Shadows.”

On the social agenda, associated with the movie, Mudgal further said, “I am happy to have contributed towards a film that deals with sensitive issues and the social stigma surrounding same sex love. I hope that my composition and voice are able to convey at least some of the pain and sense of tragic isolation that the protagonists must feel.”

Saagar Gupta, who has written dialogues for the film, has also penned lyrics of the song.

Saagar Gupta also said, “The brief given to me by director Sridhar Rangayan was ‘Your lyrics have to match with the stature of Shubhaji’s singing.’ The news that ace classical singer Shubha Mudgalji agreed to compose and sing the title song I was trusted with the task of penning, came as a huge honour as well as a big challenge to me. Apart from being in sync with the different situations where it appears in the film, the song is an ode to all mothers, reiterating the beautiful bond a mother shares with her child.”

“Shubhaji’s composition and soulful rendition has turned into a melodious treat to listeners. The film has already transcended beyond ethnic and cultural boundaries. Now with the release of the song across various digital platforms, we are hopeful to receive the same love and appreciation unanimously,” Gupta added.

Further becoming emotional, Gupta added, “Irony was that just few months before writing this song I had lost my mother. It was an emotional journey for me, as I was battling through my loss and longing for my mother in the same way as the mother in the film longs for her son.”

The song Surmaee Shaam is now available worldwide on various platforms like Saavn, Gaana, iTunes, Google and Amazon. It promises to be a treat to music lovers.

Evening Shadows has received a UA certificate by the censor board and the producers’ hope that the film will appeal to family audiences who they expect will come to experience the film on the big-screen.

Showcasing a heart-warming story about a son coming out to his mother in a small town in India and her difficulty in accepting him, Evening Shadows is a sensitive portrayal of the divide between two generations within families who have different points of view. The movie is slated to release on 11 January 2019.
