Music Mirror: Homi Mullan
What: An NCPA presents ‘Music Mirror: Homi Mullan’ a Hindi documentary with English subtitles. Born in Calcutta in a family with no music background, Homi Mullan (1940-2015) went on to become a master percussionist and an ace accordion player. Since the 1960s, he played for hundreds of chartbuster songs in the Hindi film industry. This biographical documentary is a walk down memory lane with the maestro as he recollects his studio recordings, stage shows and song rehearsals and party times in the music industry. He plays one instrument after another with the same dexterity that wowed the likes of S. D. Burman, R. D. Burman, Jatin-Lalit and Shiv-Hari among many others. Directed by Kushal Gopalka. Admission on a first-come-first-served basis (NCPA members will get preferential seating till 6.20 pm).
