The music of the song is composed by Amaal Mallik and is sung by his brother Armaan Malik. A minute into the song and you know it’s a Malik brothers’ classic. While Amaal’s music is melodious and easy on ears, Armaan compliments it with his soothing voice. But, it is Kumaar’s lyrics that stay with you long after the song ends. The lyrics are the highlight of this slow track and this song is an instant hit.
Talking about the song, the composer Amaal Mallik said, “Our industry holds a musical perception about each emotion that we may depict in our narrative. As music composers, our job is either to cater to that particular need or give it a contrast that grows on an audience in a way that it begins to sound more universal than just obvious.”
“For me, Kyun Rabba is the latter. Yes, it essentially speaks about a broken heart. But I’ve still looked to add finesse to it instead of letting it sag into a depressive undertone of sorts. This tune came to me one evening while the narrative of this film kept doing the rounds of my mind. I had my mind fixed on the kind of sound and melody I wanted to create,” he added.
The music composer further shared, “This song and film are a first of many. It’s my first film with Sujoy Ghosh, first with SRK’s Red Chillies Entertainment and also the first with Taapsee Pannu. It’s such an honor to be one of the youngest composers to compose for a Mr. Bachchan film.”
Taapsee further shares, “This song is my personal favorite from the album. Kyun Rabba beautifully captures an important narrative in the film. I hope the audiences like the melody as much as I do.”
