Ok, so we know that the music of DEV D (composed by Amit Trivedi) is catching up in a big way. After 'Emotional Atyachaar', numbers like 'Duniya', 'Nayan Tarse', 'Pardesi' and 'Yahi Meri Zindagi' have become popular as well. The soundtrack comprises of as many as 18 tracks. However, this was not the way DEV D was planned to begin with.

Confirms Anurag Kashyap, director of DEV D, ''We wanted music for the film but not as many songs. We were looking at a new sound for every situation, something that goes with the mood of the film. Amit gave me 9-10 songs and I liked them all. There was nothing to knock off at all since Amit had gone through the script and knew exactly what I wanted.''

It was only later that requirement for even more songs came up.

''After shooting the film, I thought that I wanted more songs. I had to depend less on dialogues and more on music. This is when Amit started composing more songs for the film. In the end, I had so many songs in the narrative that DEV D almost became a musical. It was all by chance. But no, the lead characters are not singing these songs. Most of them are playing in the background'', details Anurag.

The film maker also maintains that the music had a healing touch on him. ''After working on an emotionally draining subject like DEV D, the only switch on and switch off that happened to me was through the music. It helped ease away all the pressure that I encountered during the filming of DEV D'', says Anurag.
