Sorry Mr. Aamir Khan, sorry Mr. Mathias Duplessy and Indian Ocean, I don’t have too many good words to say about the music of Peepli Live. There might be fans of earthy music, but I’m not one of them. I’ve been a fan of Indian Ocean, but haven’t heard of Duplessy before. They get together to create a decent album, high on patriotism and with an earthen flavour to it. But I am not impressed enough to include any of the tracks in my playlist.
The album has three okay tracks by Indian Ocean: the two versions of Des Mera and Zindagi Se Darte Ho. Both numbers are patriotic in nature, talk about change and life and all. Zindagi Se Darte Ho gets better the more you listen to it.
I don’t really know what to make of the other tracks in the album – Mehngai Dayain and Chola Maati Ke Ram are just about okay numbers. The same can be said about the film’s music as well.
