American film soundtracks are often like arranged marriages: a union of disparate elements that only sometimes spark real passion.
The music of the new cross-cultural romantic comedy, When Harry Tries to Marry (108 Pics; April 22, 2011). is an inspiring evolution of sound and color reminiscent of some of the world's greatest blockbuster films.
âMusic and movies go hand in hand when you come from a culture like ours,â notes India-born, U.S.-raised director Nayan Padrai. âA soundtrack is about telling a story, rather than simply licensing some tracks.â
Integral to the making of the movie, the soundtrack matches the filmâs distinctly indie American vibe and its intricate, vibrant Indian scenes. It features some of Austinâs boldest, most soulful sounds and some of the subcontinentâs best playback (cinema) singers and composers. The tracks share a catchy intensity perfectly tuned to the film.
Mapping the journey of Harry, an Indian-American hoping to avoid romantic disappointment by choosing an arranged marriage, the soundtrack forms a seamless part of this tale of careful calculation and undeniable spark.
Sounds like: Aimee Mann and Slumdog Millionaireâs A.R. Rahman swapping iPods.
Envisioned as essential to the filmâs action and characters, the soundtrack was part of the scriptâs evolution from its beginnings more than a decade ago. Padrai knew exactly what he wanted to hear and when.
âWhen people shoot a scene, they think carefully about the color of the wall behind the actors, and their clothing. Why wouldnât you decide just as early on what people are listening to?â Padrai explains. âIn Indian cinema, you usually make the music before you make the movie.â
With a clear notion of what music would capture the characters and the moments, he called Sarah Sharp, an old friend from one of Americaâs quintessentially musical cities, Austin. Sharp, a singer-songwriter with serious jazz chops and a background in music supervision for film and television, understood that an independent film needed indie music voices.
âInstead of putting commercial tracks together in the editing room, I got to work with Nayan and introduce him to these artists early on,â recalls Sharp. âThe result is youthful and indie. Itâs not your garden-variety soundtrack. And Indian audiences will hear a whole new side of American music.â
Sharp started to work with mainstays of the Austin sceneâfrom hip-hop artist Terâell Shahid to the idiosyncratic electronica of Small*Star, from the extraordinary talent of rock/pop duo the June Junes to Craig Marshallâs catchy, brainy rock. With Marshall, Rachel Loy (an in-demand session player, when not moonlighting with Small*Star), and with singer-songwriter Andrea Perry, Sharp sat down, hung out, and started writing original songs for the film, some based on Padraiâs lyric ideas.
Meanwhile, cut to a Mumbai recording studio, where big namesâfrom the established Udit Narayan to the youth icon Shreya Goshal, along with the soulful Madhushree and up-and-comer Rishikesh Kamerkarâlaid down stunning vocals for key songs inspired by Indian wedding ceremonies, the festival of color â Holi, and traditional Gujarati dances. Composed and produced by Siddharth Kasyap, the tracks have all the sparkle of Indian film hits, while remaining grounded in acoustic sounds.
âSiddharth actually created temp tracks for even the rough cut, and throughout the editing process we composed new tracks to go with scenes instead of using temp score, which is usually done. Siddharth is the type of composer who takes the time to let the music marinate with the film instead of throwing the whole mixer at you and making a square peg fit a round hole,â says Padrai. âWe needed something more folk-oriented, more earthy and more realâ¦ and he knew exactly what to do.â
âI wanted to have a really powerful soundtrack for the movie. Maybe being Indian, I felt the film had to have great musicâor what kind of movie is it, anyway?â laughs Padrai.
