This is an awesome soundtrack from an awesome band. I have long been a fan of Indian Ocean's unique blend of Indian, Jazz and Western music. The result of this fusion is that music that one cannot stop listening to. Sometime in the last year or so, Indian Ocean's music for Anurag Kashyap's controversial film about the Mumbai bomb blasts - Black Friday - was released. The soundtrack is very good, and seems very situational, with tracks titled as "RDX", "Memon House", and "Bomb Planting".
The soundtrack also includes three songs performed by the band - Bandeh, Badshah in Jail and Bharam Bap Ke. The lyrics by Piyush Mishra are very good, and the music is unlike any heard in Indian movies before. It is very Indian Ocean, and seems directly suited to the theme of the movie.
A few days back I was listening to some of Indian Ocean's early albums. I realized that Bandeh is loosely based on their song "Torrent" from the self-titled album "Indian Ocean". Also, "Bharam Bap Ke" is an updated version of "Brisk Lonely Walk" from the same album. Both tracks were purely instrumental in their original incarnation. The added lyrics and vocals, as well as the use of additional instruments (probably sarangi) in the new versions gives an entirely new feel to the tunes. It is amazing what such talented musicians can do when revisiting some of their older material!
And how I wish I could attend a live performance by Indian Ocean sometime soon!
