One of the finest blues, jazz & soul singers in the country, Vasundhara Vee makes her film OST debut as the voice of new thriller film Dhaakad’s title track. Vasundhara’s strong soul style vocals to the Hindi lyrics of the song compliment the international look and feel of the Kangana Ranaut, Arjun Rampal starrer, making it (arguably) at par with a global OST feature. As an indie loyalist, Vasundhara found an appropriate space and function for her vocal identity within the Bollywood arena, on her own terms in a track that celebrates feminine resilience.
Vasundhara felt the emotive landscape of the song hit close to home for her cinematic debut, as she found an appropriate space and function for her vocal identity within the Bollywood arena.
“The emotive landscape of the song hit home for me. Everything I sing is about self-love, inner strength, coping, finding personal authenticity and Dhaakad does all of that. Even though I was stepping out of my comfort zone, the emotive content was very ME,” says Vasundhara. The singer did a video single last year titled Run.
Vasundhara’s song comes at a point in the film where the protagonist Agni reaches rock bottom, she is broken and this song is her inner voice asking her to ‘get up’… to remember who she is and to go back into life with vigour and new resolve.
Dhaaakad’s title track has been composed, arranged and produced by Dhruv Ghanekar while the lyrics are by Ishitta Arun.
