We’ve got Guru Narayan & Aaquib Jaleel vs Bimal Thankachan & Anirudh Kishore for this edition.
About the performers:
Guru is a South Indian middle-class half boil; neither here nor there is his permanent state of mind. He is terrified of his parents, Hindi, wife and Annabelle (in that order). He was born and brought up in Chennai where his dreams were locked up in a Godrej Bero and keys were hidden. He tried to see if his unfulfilled dreams finally come true in Bombay, but he was just chased back to Chennai!!.
From being that Tamil Brahmin kid who went to Carnatic classes to sing ‘Maha Ganapathim’ during Navarathri season to someone who idolises the music of The Beatles, Anirudh is a make-do musician. With his interests ranging from the classic rock from the 80s to the legendary Walmart yodelling kid, he is thankful for his engineering degree for giving him the time and space to pursue them all. Borderline survives on the drive to explore different forms of producing music.
Aaquib Jaleel is a comic. He enjoys sunsets, long walks and jokes about the great depression. He has an hour titled “stupid” which has received much praise such as –
“This was stupid” – some random dude who watched the show. “Stupid show. Stupid act” – some other random dude who watched the show.
“This show is genius” – Aaquib Jaleel.
Bimal grew up listening to BoneyM, colonial cousins , Backstreet Boys and a variety of Malayalam movie songs , while simultaneously going for Carnatic music classes. Music became instrumental in his life with the introduction of the guitar and synthesiser and slowly started to become everything he wanted. With years battling the vocational war and finding some semblance of stability as a video producer, his music is stronger than ever. He writes music with emphasis on depression, solitude and hope, and on occasion designing orchestral scores for short films and other videos.
