Dibakar Banerjee ropes in Delhi Band “Joint Family” for Detective Byomkesh Bakshi
Everyone who heard the song kept thinking that the song belongs to a band from abroad or the style was close to that of Vishal-Shekhar. Dibakar kept the curiosity high by not talking about who the song belonged to. Social media has been abuzz where everyone has been trying to guess who the singer for the song is.
The track which has been used in the teaser is called Life’s a Bitch which is composed by a popular five piece nu-metal band from New Delhi, Joint Family. The Delhi based band will also be converting this song into Hindi. The film stars Sushant Singh Rajput for the title role and Swastika Mukherjee who will be seen playing the role of Anguri.
Byomkesh Bakshy is the biggest and the most famous detective character on the India Television. This is the first time a movie will be made on him. The film is being directed by Dibakar Banerjee and will be produced by YRF and Dibakar Banerjee Productions.
Dibakar said,”It’s funny how a lot of people thought we have taken some firang band ka track for the teaser. I saw a hilarious You Tube comment that moaned how I too, like some other directors, had become a copycat and stolen some music off the net!
Joint Family, like Byomkesh – is a pure desi talent from Delhi that’s been putting the Indie nu metal scene on fire since 2007/8. Their kickass track Life’s a Bitch features in the Byomkesh teaser and will feature in the film as an important track. I guess when something truly sensational and world class breaks through – we are a bit reluctant to accept that it’s homegrown and genuine.
And this is just the beginning. A whole bag of raw Indian Indie music talent will feature in the soundtrack of Byomkesh Bakshy and we will keep unveiling Desi Indie bands that deserve a place in the world stage!”
