We are not surprised that Resul Pookutty brought home an Oscar. So devoted is the sound designer to his job, that he’d go to any lengths to capture ‘real’ sounds for his film. Resul and his team flew to the Bahamas to record underwater sounds for the film Blue’s background score. As Blue is an underwater action film, most of it has been shot in the Bahamas. So, Resul thought it was essential to record on location.

Resul said, “Before we started working on the score, we flew down to the Bahamas to get the underwater feel.” Resul and his crew went 60 feet underwater with their equipment to capture the required sounds for the film. After he returned to India, Resul worked on the sounds and modified them to suit Blue’s background score.

Considering that the film is made on a lavish budget, the producers are giving the film the best. Director, Anthony D’Souza said, “We wanted a very genuine sounding film. The only way to get it was to go down in the ocean.”

It is the first time that an underwater action adventure film has been made in India. Produced by Shri Ashtavinayak Cine Vision, Blue stars Akshay Kumar, Sanjay Dutt and Lara Dutta.
