The film Bombay Talkies is being made to commemorate 100 years of Indian cinema and incorporates four 20-minute short films directed by Zoya Akhtar, Karan Johar, Anurag Kashyap and Dibakar Banerjee.
For all the four short films, music composer Amit Trivedi of Dev.D and Aiyya fame will score the music. He will have to compose in four different styles depending upon the sensibilities of the four directors.
The four short films reflect the individual director’s take on Indian cinema as it exists from 1913 to 2013. Even the music has to represent the feel of the different periods as depicted in the four films.
The films by Zoya, Anurag and Dibakar has only background score, while Karan’s film has lip-sync songs.
