Leaving Home traces the journey of the band who met occasionally in a bungalow in Karol Bagh. There they jammed, fooled around, made memories and created new music. Welcome to the story of Indian Ocean.
Leaving Home – The Life and Music of Indian Ocean won the best arts and culture film at the 58th National Film Awards last week. Directed by Jaideep Verma, the film talks about the lives and careers of the band members. A big fan of the Delhi-based Indian Ocean, Jaideep wanted to do something that nobody has ever done before – commercially release an Indian non-fiction film.
The band was unaware of the Award until they received congratulatory messages from all their friends. The band’s drummer Amit Kalim was surprised, he said “We didn’t even know we were up for an award. Only when we started getting congratulatory calls and message, did we realize we had won the National Award. It is most noteworthy. But honestly this is Jaideep’s win not ours.”
Jaideep however humbly commented that the positive reactions from the audiences is all he had set out to achieve. The film also talks about former band-mate Asheem Chakravarty (percussionist/vocalist) who passed away due to a cardiac arrest two years ago.
You can get a copy of the movie at all leading stores through EMI.
