If you have followed my blog for a while, you would know that I am a fan of the group called The Indian Jam Project. This group of talented musicians excels in re-arranging famous international soundtracks into an Indian classical version. They recently released the tribute to James Bond Theme music. I love James Bond movies. In fact, I, my wife and my daughter bond well over Bond movies. So I was super excited to listen to this version of the theme. After all, James Bond’s Indian connection have resurfaced long after Octopussy.
It felt a bit strange when I heard it the first time. I was not sure if I liked it or not. But the more I listened, it grew on me. Has it something to do with Tushar Lall meeting the legend, A R Rahman? (For the uninitiated, it is believed that A R Rahman’s songs do not strike a chord immediately but one will start loving it when he/she listens a few more times). It sounds brilliant. Ending it with Skyfall, was the icing on the cake. I like the grayscale theme as well. Below is the video. If you do not like it the first time, I insist that you give it at least a couple of more tries.
Below are my posts about my favourites of The Indian Jam Project’s works
Check out their other works in their YouTube Channel. Enjoy the music!

Sounds interesting! I will definitely listen to this. Btw, I loved Rahman the first time I heard him. But only the early Rahman; the later ones don’t have the same evocative, lyrical quality.
I agree. It was very refreshing in his early days. Now it is more of experimenting. That said, the music is still good. Just that it is not clicking immediately. His melodies and pathos songs are the best.
