Top place in the movie industry’s Golden Globes awards has gone to the Indian-based drama “Slumdog Millionare.” At the ceremony in Los Angeles it swept four categories, including best director for Danny Boyle. “Slumdog” features a young Indian man in Mumbai who’s looking for love and competing for money on a television game show. Kate Winslet won two awards for best dramatic actress for her role as a frustrated housewife in “Revolutionary Road” and a German woman in “The Reader.” The Globes are a precursor to Hollywood’s Oscar awards.

A.R.Rahmaan nominated for oscar

rahman-2004

A.R. Rahman’s Hindi song from ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ is a now a hot favourite at the Oscars. What is not so well known is that the song, ‘Aaja aaja shamiane ke taley’, was originally written for another movie.

Song writer Gulzar had written the song for Subhash Ghai’s latest release ‘Yuvvraaj’.

“I wrote a song ‘Aaja aaja shmiane ke taley/Zari wale neele aasman ke taley’ for Subhash Ghai’s ‘Yuvvraaj’. But then for some reason Subhash felt he didn’t need that song in the film,” Gulzar said.

“So Rahman suggested that we use the track in ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ because it fits perfectly. We asked Subhash and he readily agreed. I must say it was very generous of him.”

The number has now entered the Best Song category at the Academy Awards. It also fetched the Los Angeles Critics Choice Award for best score and has been nominated for the New York Critics Choice Award.

Brushing off the praise from Gulzar for allowing the song to be in another film, Ghai said: “Nothing generous about it. Give and take is an integral part of any creative field.

“Look at M.F. Husain Saab’s generosity. He called me up all the way from Dubai to say he loved ‘Yuvvraaj’. After the battering that it got his words came as balm to my soul, specially when Husain Saab said he saw the film twice and liked it even better the second time.

“I happily gave the ‘Aaja aaja…’ song to Rahman when he said it was needed for Danny Boyle’s film. I felt the song was slightly too soft and subtle for the aggressive character (Zayed Khan in ‘Yuvvraaj’). I’m glad they could use it.”

Any regrets, now that the song is going places?

“None at all. Every film and every song has its own destiny. That song was meant to be in ‘Slumdog Millionaire’. I’m just happy that a Hindi song is being noticed, heard and hummed in the US by non-NRI audiences,” Ghai said

Indian ocean to compose music for Aamir Khan next film

indian_ocean_06_common

Popular band Indian Ocean, which changed the course of contemporary fusion music in India with its album ‘Kandisa’, has been experimenting with Bollywood music and its latest project is in a film being produced by Aamir Khan.

‘We are composing three songs for a film which is being directed by a newcomer called Anusha and will be produced by Aamir Khan,’ Amit Kilam, the group’s drummer, told IANS.

After receiving rave reviews for its unique style of music, Indian Ocean entered Bollywood with Anurag Kashyap’s controversial film ‘Black Friday’.

Even though the music was completely out of the league and unusual, it was highly appreciated, especially the song ‘Bande’.

The group is also composing music for ‘Mumbai Cutting’ and ‘Bhoomi’.

”Mumbai Cutting’ is a compilation of 12 short films on Mumbai and we have done one song for Anurag Kashyap’s short film,’ Kilam said.

‘We are also composing music for a new film ‘Bhoomi’ currently under production. We are supposed to compose six songs for the film,’ he added.

Rahul Ram anchors Indian Ocean along with Sushmit Sen on the guitars. While Asheem Chakraborty plays the tabla, the versatile Kilam accompanies on the drums and many other forms of percussion as well as vocals.

Kilam said it was a good time to create music in Bollywood as it was going through a transitional phase and becoming more open to unconventional tunes.

‘Bollywood is opening doors and using different sorts of music a lot more than before,’ he said.

‘Since the reach of the industry is tremendous, when Hindi films use composers like us or other young bands and young singers, then the kind of music we create has a bigger chance to reach out to more people,’ Kilam added.

The band was in the capital to perform at the Indian Institute of Foreign Trade (IIFT).

Indian Ocean’s genesis dates back to 1990 when it came out with its first album. In 18 years, it has brought out four albums – ‘Indian Ocean’, ‘Desert Rain’, ‘Kandisa’ and ‘Jhini’.

The band has also performed in London, at the New Zealand Arts Festival, Melbourne Arts Festival, Smithsonian Folk Life Festival (Washington), Tokyo, Indonesia, Germany, Singapore, Italy and Dubai.

‘We don’t feel a lot of difference when we perform in India and when we perform abroad. It’s only that the audience size is a little smaller in the west because everything is organised to accommodate a set number of people. In India the number is much more,’ Kilam said.

Indian Ocean is known for their amalgamation of rural, urban, world and classical music.
