“Soon after the release of Vikram Vedha, I got many offers including the ones from Bollywood for the background score. But I am a staunch believer that I have to offer a wholesome package to a film rather than being confined to a particular zone. But I couldn’t refrain when I was approached Mohanlal sir’s Odiyan. Such intriguing was its premise laced with non-linear narration,” says Sam CS about his foray into Mollywood through Mohanlal’s Odiyan.
Spilling some beans on the musical prominence the tale of Odiyan carries, Sam said, “It’s a thriller set against the backdrops of a particular time period and region, which gave me an instant ideation to utilize the ancient ethnic musical instruments of Kerala.”
Talking about the unique instrumentals that he has used in Odiyan, he said, “Usually when we think of Bamboo associated with instruments, it would be a mere flute. But there is a 6ft long Bamboo instrument, which is known for its casting esthetical spell. We came across just one old lady, who knows to play it and used her for this film.”
Sam CS is currently busy with a variety of films in Tamil such as Karu, Gorilla, Adanga Maru, Mr. Chandramouli, Vanjagar Ulagam and a few more.
