If buzz in the town is to be believed, composers Vishal-Shekhar have created a dhinchaak score for RASCALS that has a trademark David Dhawan stamp to it. The film-maker, who has a penchant for extracting mass friendly soundtrack out of composers, promises that the composer duo has gone the whole hog to make RASCALS special.
"Vishal-Shekhar are so good and have created some lovely music for the film," he says, "In fact I felt so nice when they told me that they had grown up on music of my films. For RASCALS too they said that they wanted to create my kind of music. On the other hand I wanted to hear their own style. I like sitting with my composers when they create music and even for RASCALS I was thoroughly involved. In the process just the right mix of music has come up. You would be hearing the songs soon."
Even as a film RASCALS is said to be vintage David Dhawan affair with non-stop masti and hungama on screen. Now that would be something to look forward to because there was a time when David Dhawan was the king of masala films. He ruled right through the 90s with films that were the right blend of action, comedy, romance and a fair bit of drama as well. Though in 2000s masala went out of fashion, it is now back in vogue with numerous filmmakers waking up to the genre that has worked more often than not in Bollywood history.
"I have always advised budding filmmakers to never let go off the basics," says Dhawan, "This is the reason why the director in me is elated today to see the revival of masala films. I have kept that in mind while making RASCALS as well. It is what you call vintage entertainment and it would be pretty much on display for audience here as well."
