By Viral Bhayani, IANS
After his hugely successful "Hyderabad Blues", Nagesh Kukunoor is ready with "Hyderabad Blues 2: Rearranged Marriage", a disarming mix of humour and everyday life in middle class life in India -- with eclectic music to match.
Following on the footsteps of successful soundtracks like "Bombay Boys" and "Boom", which had a mix of both international and Indian music, Kukunoor has also added some spice to his sequel with a clever selection of songs from different genres.
The "Hyderabad Blues 2" track list includes Trickbaby's "Slipping through your fingers", "Sea of stories" and "One man". Popular Pakistani band Fuzon features with two melodious hits "Mora saiyyan" and "Tere bina" from their album "Saagar".
Other highlights of the soundtrack include Sonic Gurus' "Mo' bhangra blues", Caliche's "Additappa" and Biddu's "Aaj ki raat". The soundtrack also comprises an original track "Dil pe mat lo", written and performed specially for the film by the acclaimed rock band from Hyderabad Alter Egos.
