The music composer trio Shankar, Ehsaan and Loy will be making their digital debut with Anand Tiwari directorial ‘Bandish Bandits’. The web series will stream on Amazon Prime Video very soon. The musical trio will be composing the soundtrack and background score of the series.
‘Bandish Bandits’ narrates a love story of two absolutely separate personalities and music lovers Radhe (a classical musician) and Tamanna (a free-spirited pop star).
The trio hopes to bring the lost artistic musical format back to popular culture. They think that Prime Video’s large audience will help fulfill their wish.
The musicians said in a statement, “While the background score will work in tandem with the story-line and scenes, the songs in this series form a part of the core narrative. Making musicals is a bit of a lost art form in India, and with Bandish Bandits we hope to bring this artistic format back to popular culture. Prime Video’s large audience and efforts in cinematic story-telling, makes it the perfect home for a show like this.”
Showrunner Amritpal Singh Bindra said, “We are thrilled to be partnering with Amazon Prime Video to tell the story of Bandish Bandits. The show is a millennial love story set against the backdrop of a clash between Pop and Hindustani classical music. Based in Jodhpur, it explores the central theme of whether music is discipline or is it liberation. Bandish Bandits is extremely special to us because the show has been developed completely in the house over the course of two years and is being directed by Anand Tiwari.”
