After national honour, 'Laptop' music launched for public
With the National Award for best music already under his belt, young music director Mayookh Bhaumik is hopeful that the audience would now lap up the sound track of the film 'Laptop'.
Only a two-film old music director, Bhaumik bagged the national award for the theme song of 'Laptop', a film directed by Kaushik Ganguly whose 'Arekti Premer Galpo' (Just Another Love Story) had won the Silver Peacock at IFFI 2010.
Bhaumik, who made his debut as a music director with 'Takhan Teish' by director Atanu Ghosh last year, said the theme song binds the entire film together. "This is one track which is more than just a song. It binds the four strands of the film, the four stories, together," said the musician.
The National Award won by him, Bhaumik said, actually was "an appreciation of the hard work of the Laptop team." Kaushik Ganguly, the director, "had left it absolutely to me on the music front," Mayookh told a press meet last evening after the music launch of the film, which had been screened at IFFI 2011 and Dubai Film Festivals earlier.
Besides the theme music, the only other number Laptop's music CD contains is a promotional song sung by Anupam Roy, though the song is not a part of the two-hour long film produced by Brand Value Communications.
On what kind of films he wants to be associated with, he said, "I do any project I feel in sync with the idea," Director Ganguly said Laptop centred around four parallel stories of which a laptop, the protagonist in the conventional sense, is the common factor.
The stolen laptop changes hands between people of different cross sections of society and in the course of this journey, it becomes a witness to a number of relationships.
Each story begins, but before it ends, the laptop has changed hands to look into the inside of a fresh relationship. PTI
