Dec 15, 2009 IANS

Mumbai, Dec 15 (IANS) Music director Sajid says he and his brother Wajid have tried to reflect 18th century colonial culture through their music in Salman Khan starrer period drama "Veer".

"The film focuses on British culture in India and how they used to mix with each other then. So while making the music, we combined the music of two cultures to give the actual feel of that time," Sajid told IANS at the music launch of "Veer" here Monday.

Before starting work, Sajid-Wajid did research on the instruments extensively used during that time.

Asked if they utilised original musical instruments used during that period, he said: "I made use of keyboards. When things are available, better make use of that because finally it's the sound that matters."

"Veer" is about bravery, treachery and love. The story revolves around Pindaris who preferred death to dishonour and fought to their last breath to save their land. In the film, Salman plays a Pindari soldier.

The film has five songs and Gulzar has penned them.
