Breaking News

The world of entertainment news was again shook today with the death of another legend. Ennio Morricone, the legendary Italian composer, breathed his last today, following complications after suffering a fall last week, which had resulted in a hip fracture. He was 91 years old. Regarded by many as arguably the greatest film composer of all time, Morricone enthralled generations of movie-buffs and music aficionados with his iconic scores in both Italian films like ‘The Good, the Bad and the Ugly’, For a Few Dollars More, A Fistful of Dollars, Once Upon a Time in the West,, The Big Gundown and My Name is Nobody as also Hollywood movie such as The Untouchables, The Thing, The Mission and Once Upon a Time in America.AR Rahman, Farhan Akhtar, Randeep Hooda Also Read – RIP Sushant Singh Rajput: Dil Bechara director Mukesh Chhabra says, ‘The Industry has lost a gem, an irreplacable gem’

Mourning his loss, one of India’s greatest film composers, A.R. Rahman, paid tribute to Ennio Morricone by tweeting: “Only a composer like #EnnioMorricone could bring the beauty, culture and the lingering romance of Italy to your senses in the pre-virtual reality and pre-internet era… All we can do is celebrate the master’s work and learn.” Also Read – AR Rahman to co-produce Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s international film No Land’s Man

Farhan Akhtar, who’s a vast repository of cinematic knowledge, tweeted: “RIP #EnnioMorricone Thank you for the music. Sharing one of my favourites from a very long list of incredible film scores that have made so many movies memorable. This one is from ‘The Mission’.” Also Read – Throwback Thursday: When AR Rahman trolled Salman Khan and had a ‘Thug Life moment’

While Randeep Hooda poster on Twitter: “And he rides off into the sunset .. I bet it was a great tune he was humming .. Rest in peace #EnnioMorricone you’ve left us some the most iconic of music pieces for us to whistle on to this one is from #TheGoodTheBadandTheUgly enjoy and say a little prayer of gratitude.”

There are film composers who breathe life and soul into a movie, there are those who create magic on screen, there are those who simmer tension with tune and then there was Mr. Morricone, who could do all of that together while also conveying the entire plot and each emotion of the script without a word being spoken by the actors. If we can permit ourselves to borrow and tweak the equally legendary Clint Eastwood’s evergreen quote from The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, we’d say this: “There’s two kinds of films composers, my friend — Ennio Morricone and the rest.” RIP, Ennio Morricone, and thank you from the bottom of our heart for all the memories.
