Prashant Pillai composes for Anurag Kashyap’s widely acclaimed
Prashant Pillai is a highly talented musician whose body of work speaks volumes about his range. He has predominantly worked in Malayalam and Hindi while also occasionally composing for Tamil, Telugu and Marathi films. Recently, Prashant took to his social media space to express his excitement about working for an Anurag Kashyap film.
Apparently, Prashanth has composed the background score for the ace filmmaker’s widely acclaimed movie Mukkabaaz. It is a sports drama film which was screened at the special presentations section at the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival. Recently, it was also being screened at the Mumbai Academy of the Moving Image (MAMI) fest.
Mukkabaaz is jointly scripted by
Anurag Kashyap, Vineet Kumar Singh, Mukti Singh Srinet, KD Satyam, Ranjan Chandel and Prasoon Mishra. The movie stars Vineet Kumar Singh, Zoya Hussain, Ravi Kishan, Jimmy Shergill, Sadhana Singh and Rajesh Tailang in major roles. Malayali cinematographers Rajeev Ravi and Jayesh Nair are also associated with this movie.
Prashant’s last work in Malayalam was for Bejoy Nambiar’s Solo. His song ‘Roshomon’, which appears in the Rudra portions in the anthology, has become a rage among the youngsters. Earlier this year, his stellar work in Lijo Jose Pellissery’s Angamaly Diaries won him appreciation from all corners. Nivin Pauly’s Sakhavu and Kunchacko Boban starrer Varnyathil Aashanka were his other films in 2017.
