Its been exciting being in Bombay for the past few years and working with Bollywood folks in one way or the other. Its great to see some off-beat and non ‘masala’ scripts making it to theaters and I have been lucky to be associated with some such releases with more in the works as I write this.
‘Mama’s Boys’ (2016 Short Film)
Arfaaz and I created 2 songs and a quirky score for Akshat Varma’s take on the Mahabharat – Mama’s Boys. It got banned online by activists but was already watched several hundred thousand times before that. We had great fun working with Akshat on this one.
Here are the two songs -
‘Sulemani Keeda’ (2014 Feature Film)
Arfaaz and I worked on the score and soundtrack of the awesome Indie film ‘Sulemani Keeda’ which released in theatres across India in December 2014 and received great reviews from critics and audiences alike. A number of websites spoke good things about the music which featured three songs and a bunch of instrumental pieces spread across the film.
Rise Of The Zombie is an indie/cult film about the origin of zombies. Me and Arfaaz produced 4 songs featuring Ankur Tewari, Aditi Singh Sharma and Luke himself that were featured on the soundtrack and the film. The songs vary between different genres and were well received by music critics and movie fans alike.
Arfaaz and I scored the music for the crime-thriller ‘Charlie Ke Chakkar Mein’ starring Naseeruddin Shah and Amit Sial and directed by Manish Srivastav. The film was decently received at the box office despite getting a slightly delayed released.
