Its been exciting being in Bombay for the past few years and working with film makers and visionaries 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.
Created the Episode 5 finale track ‘Chaos In Desolation’ along with a bunch of additional music in addition to Music Supervision for the entire first season of this Netflix Original Series. ‘The Fame Game’ is an 8 part mystery/drama series that is produced by Dharmatic Entertainment and created by Sri Rao featuring Madhuri Dixit, Sanjay Kapoor, Muskan Jaafrey and more.
Worked on the music for the opening titles of Netflix India’s first original offering in Telugu. ‘Pitta Kathalu’ is an anthology series that is produced by RSVP Films and Flying Unicorn entertainment and features some choicest talent from the Telugu film industry.
The Big Day is a 6 part limited series produced by CondeNaste India for Netflix that throws the lens upon the lives and experiences of some interesting weddings from India. The series was ambitiously made and used a lot of music from more than a 100 different sources. Apart from composing and producing several original tracks that were featured as songs and/or score, I also executed the entire synchronization process of the music from handling, organizing sessions for final mix, cuesheets, edits etc.
Scored the entire background music for Season 1 of the 2018 drama series ‘Karenjit Kaur – The Untold Story of Sunny Leone’ directed by Aditya Dutt and produced by Namah Pictures. So far, the series has been well received by audiences and critics alike and has been renewed for another season.
‘Sulemani Keeda’ (2014 Feature Film)
Arfaaz and I worked on the score and soundtrack of the awesome Indie film ‘Sulemani Keeda’ which released in theaters 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.
A lovely little film made by independent film maker Madhulika Jalali about finding her roots and her home in Kashmir. An autobiographical insight into one journey of what would have been many stories of the exodus’ of Kashmiri pandits from their homes. Scored the background music for this 67 minute film which gained high praise at the Dharamshala International Film Festival.
‘Mama’s Boys’ (2016 Short Film)
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. Had great fun working with Akshat and Flying Unicorn Productions on this one.
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.
