Film Review: Leaving Home: A band called INDIAN OCEAN

Asheem - Tabla, other percussions and vocals, he passed away in Decenber 2009, three months before the release of the film. The film is dedicated to him.    
Susmit - on the guitar, he started it all with Asheem  

Leaving Home: The Life and Music of Indian Ocean
There is more to this non-fiction movie that the narration, interviews, anecdotes and the music of this path-breaking band. The four free men who make up the band are a revelation. It is a call to live our lives as we want to. After playing for a week at theatres all across India, you may be lucky to catch this one still on 70mm. A DVD is worth waiting for.

Amit - drums, percussion and vocals. The youngest member of the band, the irony is that he always wanted to be a guitarist.  
Rahul - bass guitar and vocals. Completes the creative cascade that the band is...
