A.R. Rahman to Compose for Animated Film

Monkeys of Mumbai

Shawn Fernandes

Indian world-conquering composer A.R. Rahman is set to return to familiar territory after his post-Slumdog Millionaire soundtracks for Hollywood –Couples Retreat and 127 Hours.

If there was ever a Hollywood script begging to be soundtracked by the “Mozart of Madras”, it’s the new DreamWorks Animation-produced Monkeys of Mumbai. Based on the ancient Indian epic Ramayana, Monkeys of Mumbaiwill be about a man whose wife is kidnapped by a demon king. The story will be told through the characters of two monkeys, who go on to become the film’s unexpected heroes.

The film will be directed by Kevin Lima, best known for directing the 1999 animated film Tarzan, (which snared Phil Collins an Oscar and a Golden Globe) as well as live action films 101 Dalmatians and Enchanted. Monkeys of Mumbai will be written by Gurinder Chadha and Paul Berges (writers ofBend it Like Beckham and Bride & Prejudice), who know a thing or two about sprinkling the masala dust over an Indian-themed script. Rahman will compose while Stephen Schwartz (Pocahontas, The Prince of Egypt) will pen the lyrics.
