An Interview With Music Director: Amit Mishra

Published

on

Amit Mishra is a versatile music director and a multi-instrumentalist with a strong affinity for classical styles of music. A soulful singer, the varied modulations, and power in his voice has been earned through a lifetime of association with performing arts. His family was few of the first ones to ever inspire him. His late father Shri. Shambhunath Mishra was a journalist and trained sitar player, his grandmother a well known Maithili folk singer. Taking a walk back into his childhood he still reminiscences about the musical gatherings and classical ragas as a traditional part of his upbringing. 10 years of his childhood were spent in the peaceful city of Benaras and the rest following in the bustling one of New Delhi.

“I remember an interesting incident back when I was in school and I had this urge to buy a guitar. The cheapest ones in those days would start from 300 rupees and my pocket money would not allow me to even purchase a single string, forget the rest of the instrument. Consequently, it took a lot of effort and odd jobs here and there to finally own the guitar. The best part, though, it turned out that the instrument came too out of shape to be even tuned as his brother’s friend regretfully informed him later”,he adds laughing.

What really was intriguing later to know was that Amit Mishra apart from his musical work, has a bachelor’s degree in fine arts, and in fact graduated as a gold medalist in his batch from Delhi college of Arts. Though professionally having started with a career in the field of fine arts he ever fueled his passion for music and went ahead to getting trained in Hindustani classical vocals and further a brief introduction to a western classical style of guitars from Delhi school of music.

“I graduated in 1996 and got married in 1997 and thereafter was completely involved in art and music. Started off with the band ‘Ind Tranzit’ followed by acts ‘Som’, and ‘Maati’, and performed at multiple live shows. On the other side I continued with my day job as a professor in a government school located in Delhi and also would regularly take out time to compose music for myself”, he added.

Having followed hence a career graph as a professional painter the real twist in the tale came with the offer for composing a title song. The project was a TV series “Ram Khilavan CM ‘N’ Family” directed by Ashwini Dhir, and Amit Mishra’s first commercial stint. An increase in the music related offers later led him to quit his job in Delhi and permanently shift over to Mumbai. The journey was never easy with back-breaking hours and lack of technical resources, but perseverance does pay as they say, and the times they change.

“My first movie break came on the way to working on the TV series “Laptaganj” then aired on SAB TV. Ashwini Dhir then along with directing the TV series was also parallelly working on the movie “Atithi Tum Kab Jaaoge?” and that’s when I was offered the chance. It started with composing the title track and later I ended up composing, writing and singing four songs for the movie. A big hit when released in back in 2010, there has been no looking back since then.” Later followed by the movie “Machchli Jal Ki Rani hai” and numerous other television series he is currently involved with the upcoming movie “Atithi in London“ and the latest project to go on air is the Tele-series “Khatmal e Ishque”.

“I loved every part of my journey and have lived each and every moment with all my heart. Yes, there were ups and downs, times good and bad, but all I tried along the way was to take everything as an inspiration to further create music. It’s not just a song but a reflection of my soul that I put out there.” , he adds with a nostalgic smile playing on his face.

On a closing note, we asked him of sharing his experience for benefit of our younger generation of musicians, and he summarized it in two simple points.

“First”, he says, “Is to know yourself. And not just in terms of a musician but as a human. Compassion is the key to the composition as it expands your understanding of life, and hence music. They are both the same and understanding that is the key.”

“Second, is to work relentlessly on your calling then no matter what anyone else says. In the process though do not lose out on the practicality of things and keep taking feedback from the experienced ones in your field to know whether you are on the right path or not.”

Thanks a lot for your kind words sir. We will stay tuned and look forward to more of your melodious work! Team NewsAurChai Wishes you all the success in life!

Ram Mandir Opening 2023 | News Aur Chai

The Ram Mandir in Ayodhya is expected to allow visitors by December 2023, with the completion of construction only in 2025.

Sources in the Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Teerth Kshetra have revealed that the colossal project of building the Ram Mandir in Ayodhya, Uttar Pradesh, will be opening for devotees towards the end of 2023. In contrast, the project’s entire construction completion is expected towards the end of 2025. The sanctum sanctorum (Garbha Griha), along with the mandir’s first floor, will be ready by December 2023. Devotees will be allowed to visit the long-awaited mandir soon after the construction is completed.

An ANI report said, “The grand Ram Mandir being constructed in Ayodhya will be opened for devotees from December 2023. Sources told ANI that Garbhagriha, all five mandaps and the first floor will be ready by December 2023 and the mandir will be opened for devotees”.

The sanctum sanctorum will be as high as 161 feet and built using Rajasthani marble and stones. Engineers and architects are taking all measures to ensure the longevity of this enormous project. The second stage of construction is expected to begin in December this year. Currently, the structure is at a standstill as a result of monsoons. Another reason for the delay is the coronavirus pandemic that depleted the force with which the mandir’s construction was expected to go on.

The announcement of the mandir being opened to visitors in 2023 has brought up questions about the political agenda. It is believed that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) aims to use the mandir to catapult themselves into a position of advantage during the 2024 Lok Sabha elections. Opening the mandir to devotees in December 2023 will give the BJP an easy 6-month gap to the general elections in 2024.

The opening of the long-awaited Ram Mandir in Ayodhya could be the factor that diverts the public, at least the Hindu’s in favour of BJP. Thus, securing them a vote bank based on religious sentiments upheld by the party in their previous tenure as the ruling party.

The Ram Janmabhoomi Mandir will be 360 feet long, 235 feet wide, and 20 feet high mandir will be completely ready by the end of 2025. The project will include amenities and structures like museums, archives, research centre, Sant Niwas, gau and Yagya shala, Etc. The main attraction is the Ram Mandir.

Matrix Resurrections 2021 | News Aur Chai

The expectation of the unexpected fourth instalment of The Matrix Resurrections in the sci-fi establishment has started with another banner prodding the arrival of its first trailer.

The film Matrix 4 comes out 18-years after The Matrix Revolutions. It is planning to be the last film in a trilogy reporting the transformation of Computer programmer Thomas Anderson into cybercriminal Neo. As he finds the conventional world, he occupies a recreated reality.

Loosening up the expectation, with a special promotional. It highlights red and blue pills sit next to each other underneath the clear message: ‘The Choice is yours.’ Fans of the famous establishment will perceive the pills as a definitive choice given to Neo, played by Keanu Reeves, as he picks between life in the conflict assaulted real world or the ‘beautiful prison’ of a substitute reality. Penetrating static fills in as the scenery, as small strings of Matrix code has seen falling inside the pills before the whole scene liquefies.

Fans can proceed with their adventure on WhatIsTheMatrix.com, an intelligent pick your-own-experience style site. Given a similar decision there, red brings you down a rabbit hole where you’re told: ‘This is the moment for you to show us what’s real.’ Then scenes from the film teaser, showing the slight hindrance between the natural world and the fake world known as The Matrix. One of the Best Scenes is Reeves’ Neo gulping a blue pill while a lot more seasoned, a balder man shows up in his appearance.

The scenes reviewed rely upon which pill selection and each emphasis on the decision made. The Red Pill requests that the watcher go further into the reality behind the Matrix. While the Blue Pill cautions them to avoid it again so as not to agitate the norm and welcome undesirable risk.

Still, the viewer’s decision makes, in any case, every secret seems to end with a brief look at Keanu Reeves as Neo, with different eyes. He either collaborates with characters who could be his partners in the film or plans to fight against its expected scalawags, be they Agents, pernicious projects, or even people.

The person who clicks on the blue pill will hear Harris’s voiceover saying: “You’ve lost your capacity to discern reality from fiction.” Before encouraging the viewer to embrace that their situation is genuine. At the current time, streaks on the screen, and Harris peruses it, saying, “anything else is your mind playing tricks on you.” By contrast, ones’ who click on the red pill hear Abdul-Mateen’s voice revealing to them that while they trust it’s the current time — once more. With Abdul-Mateen perusing the time out loud — “that couldn’t be further from the truth.” Regardless, a progression of quick-cut shots from “Revivals” streaks on the screen during the two situations. As each time a viewer taps on a pill, the recording changes.

‘This could be this is the first day of the rest of your life, but if you want it, you gotta fight for it.’ The portrayal wraps while showing star Keanu Reeves prepared to battle. Then, at that point, finishing on a vile note, they show somebody contacting the PC port at the rear of their head and inquire: ‘We don’t want anyone to get hurt, do we?’

From visionary movie producer Lana Wachowski. The new film reunites unique stars Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss as Neo and Trinity, the infamous roles they made well known.’ The first Matrix film in 1999 met with much essential acclaim upon its introduction. The element is following up by two other movies, which were both delivered in 2003. Warner Bros. uncovered the title for the fourth Matrix film during its CinemaCon board. The Matrix Resurrections will release on December 22, 2021.
