Giving details about the soundtrack in the series, he shared: “‘Chuna’ is a crime drama based in a small town in North India. Pushpendra Mishra – the director of the show has an amazing aesthetic and writing style that is deeply rooted in North Indian culture. We were actually working on another project when he told me about the theme of the show and I was instantly hooked. The sound is not rustic or typical at all.

He further mentioned: “Pushpendra (Pushpi – as she is fondly known) inspired me to experiment and explore a more cinematic sound, juxtaposing myself in gritty images. Since this was my first web series that I worked on, I had to re-examine many of my processes to take advantage of the immersive style of storytelling. The show is extremely entertaining and a lot of fun to watch and my job was to always keep the momentum going and the momentum going.”

Opening up about the challenges of working on long-form content for the first time, he said: “I started working on the show in 2021 during the pandemic. The whole process of making music had changed during that time. The first part of the process was built in complete isolation as I started work at the peak of the pandemic. The show initially had a very serious tone, so it was my job as the composer to gradually make the mood of the series more dramatic. things were coming together covid Some actors were shocked and the entire schedule came to a halt.

He further added: “Finally, after many months the shooting started and after about 6 months the show was getting ready for post production. The cost and implications of Covid-related delays meant that the original music teams moved on to other projects and I had to assemble a new team in a short space of time.

“Also the tone had changed and hence, I had to change the tone from darker to lighter and more action based sound to add some brevity to the show. The main thing was to make it enjoyable and entertaining without diluting the dramatic moments. The challenge was to keep the show entertaining without using clichés and at the same time keep it dramatic without being too serious,” he added.

The show starring Jimmy Shergill in the lead is slated to release on August 3, 2023. Netflix,
