After a series of cast reveals, the makers of 1962: The War In The Hills have released the original soundtrack from the show – ‘Hum Shaan Se Jalne Nikle Hai’. With music composed by Hitesh Modak, the heart-touching music video, is an emotional narration of the many sacrifices of a soldier who sets off to serve his country without fearing for his own life. Singers Vijay Prakash, Salman Ali and Hitesh Modak, with their soulful vocals, have effortlessly weaved in multiple emotions associated with the story. Lavraj has penned the lyrics which are an embodiment of true patriotism. The six other songs that play throughout the series have been sung by some of the finest singers in India – Sukhwinder Singh, Vijay Prakash, Salman Ali, Shailey Bidwaikar and Shahjan Mujeeb among others.
Director of the series Mahesh Manjrekar said “1962: The War In The Hills is a very powerful story about bravery and valour; and we wanted an equally powerful soundtrack that brings out the true emotions of the story. Hitesh and everyone else have done a tremendous job at creating a musical marvel. Hum Shaan Se Jalne Nikle Hai has the power to move people and fill them up with pride.”
Hitesh Modak added, “1962: The War in the Hills is an extraordinary tale of love, sacrifice and bravery; and I wanted to bring out the intensity of these emotions through the different songs. The entire album is a diverse collection of tunes, with each song signifying a different feeling – be it grief, happiness or honour. Working on this project has been a truly magical experience and I hope people are able to relate to the emotions strung in these melodies”
