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.

    Good to see Indian Ocean on the Bollywood scene after that scintillating Bande from Black Friday. I hope they make an appearance more often…
    And boy, Raghuveer Yadav can sing…

  • Vinit_jus_rulez

    i wanna hear that “Zindagi” song… i've heard them in live concert….!

  • Savarun

    Hey have you heard the coke studio version of Alif Allah http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gjaH2iuoYWE? It's brilliant. Wrong post to comment though πŸ™‚ A fan!

  • Jaydeep

    I was wondering where did I hear Des Mera..but later realized its from their own 2003 album Jhinni. I am amazed with Bollywood's reach..the song that not many knew about has become an instant hit.

  • Phillumfan

    Ah, breath of fresh air, welcome back Indian Ocean! πŸ˜€

  • Joiedevivre02

    really first time i heard this type of song “chola matti ke ram”.the real taste of folk

  • Rc

    Ram Sampath only remixed Mehngai dayain. The composition is credited to Bhadwai Village Mandali.

  • tejas

    'Mehangai Daayan' and 'Chola Maatee Ke Ram' are two super awesome songs! Trust Aamir to get the authentic stuff for his films..!!

    Indian Ocean is not my favorite band by any stretch, but I liked 'Des Mera' and was not at all impressed with 'Zindagi Se..'. The later is just a reworked 'Bandeh' which was phenomenal song!
