Despite triggering polarised views, the background music of Animal is trending online, especially Jamaal Jamaloo, an old Iranian song in the Farsi language composed by the Khatereh Group.
Listen to the original song here.
Jamaal Jamaloo is not the only song that director Reddy Vanga has borrowed and used in his film about a complex father-son relationship, starring Ranbir Kapoor and Anil Kapoor. The instrumental version of the song Dil Hai Chota Sa from Mani Ratnam’s Roja, originally composed by AR Rahman, has been used to introduce Ranbir Kapoor’s character in the film. Threeory Band has created the Roja track for Animal.
Dolby Walya, composed by Ajay-Atul from the Marathi film Jaundya Na Balasaheb, has been used for an action sequence in Animal.
Apart from these, Animal boasts of its own original soundtrack comprising songs like Hua Main, Satranga and Arjan Vailly.
