Recently, Marathi Film industry has been witnessing a new trend of fresh talent and new faces in Music direction. Karan Kulkarni is such a promising music director whose music will be USP for Sachin Kundalkar’s Happy Journey. Shalmali Kholgade, a known playback singer in Hindi will also be singing two songs for this film. The movie will be releases on 19 September 2014 all over Maharashtra.
With a degree from Australian University in Music production, Karan is already in the limelight for his previous Shahid and Peddler nu Anurag Kashyap. Happy Journey will be his first movie in Marathi.
Happy Journey is one of the most awaited movies of this year, and audience is really curious about its music. “Sachin had a clear concept about music on the film, so it was a challenge for me to construct music around those concepts. Ultimately we succeeded in it. Sound engineer Alok Panjani’s distinctive style has taken my music to another level. Debarpita Saha’s background music contribution is one more thing which makes this very special. Shalmali’s fresh voice will make these songs more exciting.
While speaking about this experience Shalmali said, “I had earlier sung for Karan in Peddlers. In Happy Journey, I have sung two completely different songs. “Fresh” is a lively fascinating song and “Akash jhale” is a very sweet lullaby. To make this song more content oriented, I was supposed to sing it while crying. This was a definitely mile-stone experience for me.”
