Peepli Live (Music review), Hindi – Indian Ocean, Ram Sampath & Nageen Tanvir

Posted by Karthik

In true Indian Ocean tradition, the live version of Des mera manages to capture the band’s inimitable energy better than the re-adapted, recorded version! The band’s other contribution, Zindagi se is a fantastic combination of Pakistani poet N M Rashid’s lyrics and some scintillating music. Ram Sampath’s Raghubir Yadav-sung Mehngai dayain is no different – terrific lyrics that take a massive jab at the price rise, while keeping the tune beautifully rustic. Nageen Tanvir’s Chola maati seems like a folksy take on the Rahman style of filmy prayer – adequately devout and earthy. True-to-theme soundtrack that helps set the film’s tone.
