‘Aise na dekho’ by The Ink Band


Hindustan Times (Lucknow) - Live - - MY CITY -

Mu­sic: Agnel Ro­man Here’s a look at what went into the mak­ing of a hit song.

Ir­shad Kamil shares with us the story be­hind the sec­ond song of The Ink Band, ‘Aise na dekho’

Blend a poem and a song

“Ini­tially, when we were in the com­pos­ing stages of the song, the first words I ut­tered were ‘Aisa na dekho jaise pehle kabhi dekha hi na ho’ which raised a few con­cerns, one be­ing par­tic­u­larly from our mu­sic di­rec­tor - Agnel Ro­man. He asked me ‘Agar usne kabhi pehle dekha hi nahi toh phir woh kyu dekhegi?’ which in its own is an eye opener, that shows us a few lines or words can­not tell us the en­tire tale. This was one of the ma­jor rea­sons for hav­ing taken the de­ci­sion of set­ting up a poetry band. The Ink Band will be a way to put forth sim­ple con­ver­sa­tions and poetry with mu­sic and make sure the story is well con­veyed,” says Ir­shad.

The favourite part

“The emo­tion of self-re­spect that is por­trayed in the last por­tion of the poetry is some­thing that has man­aged to grasp at­ten­tion. ‘Aise na dekho’ has been so well re­ceived by the au­di­ences that I am very thank­ful and we hope to de­liver some­thing fresh to our lis­ten­ers in the fu­ture too,” he adds.

(‘Aise na dekho’ is on the top of the charts on Fever 104 FM this week)
