The trailer for House of Secrets: The Burari Deaths unveiled by Netflix has made the incident a topic of discussion instantly on social media pages. The series is directed by Leena Yadav and Anubhav Chopra, while it shows the infamous Burari Deaths where eleven members across three generations of a family were found dead under strange circumstances in their house situated in Delhi. Interestingly, the music maestro, AR Rahman has turned music composer for the documentary.

On collaborating with the Mozart of Madras for House of Secrets, Leena recently said in a statement, "AR Rahman coming on board to design the score of the series was like an endorsement to the relevance and urgency of exploring this case."

She called it an extremely enriching experience as a filmmaker and said it was a joy to find a collaboration that not only elevated the storytelling but also taught many lessons along the way.

Leena said that the music scored by Rahman has given House of Secrets not just a mood, but also an enormous emotional depth. 

The filmmaker added, "I find it very difficult to be articulate about music - It’s emotional, a feeling. And yet he would understand and translate it into stirring soundscapes. Having a great artist like him leave his footprints on our telling of this complex case has been an honour."

Whereas Rahman said that it was a unique experience for him to work on the docuseries. The Academy awardee musician further said that the docu-series required a distinct, nuanced musical approach with an enigmatic yet gripping tone as it concerned with a sensitive and complex issue. 

Rahman concluded by saying, "I am glad to have worked on such a project, which so far has been an unexplored territory for me."

House of Secrets: The Burari Deaths will stream on Netflix from October 8, 2021.
