Leaving Home: The Indian Ocean Story

 On April 2nd 2010, the Indian documentary world saw a first in a rare theatrical release of  LEAVING HOME: The Life and Music of Indian Ocean. The film stayed for a week at select screens, and it was a treat to view it on 70mm. Asheem Chakraborty, one of the four members of the original line up had passed away by the time of the film's release. The film is dedicated to his memory.

Also, the film traces with simple, endearing detail the band members, the ones who left the band midway and regretted it, the woman who left soon, the coming of Amit Kilam, and of Kandisa, the album that turned things around. Here is the link of the review written then: LEAVING HOME
