Sounds to Ring

KOCHI: Oscar winner sound designer Resul Pookutty has disclosed that he is in the process of building his own sound library, no not for commercial purposes lest others might just copy it without making any effort to record sounds their own.

At a press conference here on Tuesday, Resul Pookutty said that his dream of building an Indian sound library was progressing. But if he opened up the library commercially, it would make others lethargic.

He revealed that he was fed up of hearing his sound recordings just getting copied by producers of advertisements and films.

“The attitude of Malayalam film industry towards sound designing is disappointing,” he said.

“I want to do more with my craft and for that I need to make my own film. That is why I am venturing into film direction,” he said. “The film is in the pipeline and it will be in Hindi.” He refused to divulge more details on the project.

Elaborating on the latest film ‘Lukka Chuppi’ (Hide and Seek), directed by Bash Mohammed, Resul said that it was a film on various behavioural patterns and live sound recording that matched the theme.

By deciding to go for live sound recording a filmmaker is trying to be very sincere and soulful. Dubbed sound drains out the soul and the originality, he said.

Bash Mohammed, said that ‘Lukka Chuppi’ is an experimental film that explores the behavioural pattern of a group of old friends who are on a get-together after a long gap. The film featuring Jayasurya, Ramya Nambeesan,  Murali Gopi, Saiju Kurup, Ashmita Sood and Muthumani among others would reach the theatres on May 21.

The executive producers of the movie, Nijinsky Soya and Dines Prabhakar also spoke.
