Prashant Pillai Filmography

Welcome to the world of films I’ve composed music for. I’m extremely grateful for all the opportunities that has made me the music composer I’m today.

Each film has it’s own challenges and I embraced all of it. 

My attempt is to live upto the script of the cinema. And I’m fearless in expressing what the film needs.

Jaliikattu_music

Jallikattu

Malayalam | Lijo Jose Pellissery

Jallikattu directed by Lijo has got the best out of me. The score captures the essence of the raging bull and its effect on humans.

Ranarangam_music

Ranarangam

Telugu | Sudheer Varma

Ranarangam was a challenging film as it needed stacking of mass elements over my experimental score. The blend between the rural India 90’s and the present Spanish topograhy was exciting to create. 

Unda_music

Malayalam | Khalid Rahman

Unda

Unda with it’s Bastar backdrop demanded discovering and recreating the sounds of the land. And I’m glad my team and I could knock off a rich and earthy score.

Failures and rejections are my prized possessions

Ee_Ma_Yau_music

Ee.Ma.Yau

Malayalam | Lijo Jose Pellissery

The impact this film had on me is deep. I found a spiritual connect in it. This bonding helped me score the final 3 minutes of the film. This was the most heartbreaking musical piece for me to score.

Mukkabaaz_music

Mukkabaaz

Anurag collaborated with me to bring in the earthiness in the score. The grit in the narrative is captured through some very rare folk instruments that my team and I recorded for the score.

Malayalam | Rafeek Ibrahim

Padayottam

I blended elements of Retro Funk and Blues for the film that attempted to be massy.

French Viplavam

French Viplavam was a dream project. The score was a symphony of Old School Jazz, Big Band sounds and gypsy music.

Andhra_mess_music

Tamil | Jai

Andhra Mess

Andhra Mess marked my debut in Tamil cinema. Acoustic Guitars and percussions drive this highly mad score.

True artists are those who choose to create something original. True artists are Fearless.

Wazir featured one song and a repurposed version of that song as a score block in the film. Bejoy manages to always get the best Sufi

Khalid’s mildly cinematic but real life narrative stopped out one of my favourite soundtracks.
