Anand said: “Decoding the musical essence of ‘Masoom’ owing to its unique storyline was not an easy task, but my repertoire with Mihir Desai paid off. Our thoughts were in sync regarding the direction we wanted to take with the title song.”
“Through the songs, I wanted to tap into the raw serenading nature of Punjabi folklore and build a lyrically relevant and melodiously captivating soundtrack that featured human relationships,” he says.
Boman also added: “‘Masoom’ carries a strong cinematic texture which Anand Bhaskar Collective’s music has perfectly complemented. The mesmerising lyrics of the songs touch your heart and assure you.”
“When I saw the final edit of the series and saw how beautifully it came together with the music, I was proud of what we brought before the audience,” he concluded.
