Background Score - 68 is from

This music piece is from Wake up Sid. Composer – Amit Trivedi. It is the Sid and Aisha theme. Sid and Aisha go for a walk around Mumbai in the night, with pleasant strains of Guitar accompanying them throughout their conversation and at the end of the conversation Aisha says that Siddarth is her first friend in Mumbai and Siddarth tells Aisha to call him as Sid and there begins their friendship and the main “Sid and Aisha” theme on Piano. It then recurs to sweeten all those fluffy and sometimes hefty everyday moments and conversations between Sid and Aisha. The piece I chose is from the scene in which Aisha scolds Sid for making her house untidy. Sid begins to clean the room. Even the damn-with-subtlety ‘Wake Up’ chants when Sid cleans the room, works nicely.

Wake up Sid clearly wins my award for the best background score in a Hindi film released in 2009. Amit Trivedi almost sidelined the original song composers of the film – Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy by his pleasing background score, which includes 5 beautiful songs additionally added in the film. Wake up Sid's background score also seems to be the most popular one in 2009, which is evident, from the number of sites that show up when we do a Google search on ‘Wake up Sid background score’, all providing the High quality voiceless background score of the film for download.

Here is the full version of the theme from the scene. (I had edited the Wake up chants to not to give away the film)
