Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
This British comedy tells the story of an Anglo-Indian girl who, inspired by her idol -- British soccer star David Beckham -- wants to play soccer, against the wishes of her orthodox Sikh parents. The film's soundtrack features songs by Blondie and former Spice Girls Melanie "Sporty" C and Victoria "Posh" Beckham David's wife.

Much like the soundtrack for The Guru, the music featured in Bend It Like Beckham features a mix of pop and Indian music. Unlike The Guru, however, this soundtrack is much more focused in both its scope and purpose: Bend It Like Beckham's director picked the music from her own personal music collection, focusing on artists of Indian descent like Gunjan and Bally Sagoo as well as strong, funky female artists including Blondie, Melanie C, and, appropriately enough, Victoria Beckham. The album moves smoothly from songs like Texas' "Inner Smile" to Malkit Singh's "Jind Mahl" and Sagoo and Gunjan's "Noorie," both of which feature enough Westernized pop touches to blend well but still have distinctively Indian singing, melodies, and instruments. Melanie C's "Independence Day," B21's "Darshan," Blondie's "Atomic," and Partners in Rhyme and Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan's "Tere Bin Nahin Lagda" are some of the other highlights from this diverse but surprisingly cohesive soundtrack.

    A lot of fun to listen to!

    This is a great CD. When they put this together, they did a great job of fusing Indian and dance. Even though their are some song where the words are in Hindi, you get what they mean. This is a lot of fun.

    Something's missing....

    I know someone else already said it, but it's worth repeating. It's a good album, but where's the rest of it? I liked some of the songs in the movie that didn't get included on the CD.

    Where's the rest

    I really liked the music on this album. However, some of the songs I enjoyed in the movie were not here. Very good overall though I was a little disapointed by the missing songs.

    As Big as the Movie

    I loved the movie and the soundtrack is almost as good. All of the songs are fun.
