4.0 out of 5 stars I Like This I Really Do! May 2, 2012
Format:Audio CD
With movie soundtracks you either like them or they bore you, especially if you have not seen the movie yet. This film attracted me due to the stars Maggie Smith and Jundi Dench and the story about retirees moving to India. I listened to this about 3 times yesterday and found that it can stand on it's own. The Newman legacy continues with this new soundtrack.

Thomas Newman who has scored some of cinemas most emotionally complex scores is just a pure joy to listen to. However very recently it seemed he was hitting a slump. His scores lacked distinct uniqueness and feel. I found his scores to The Adjustment Bureau and The Debt to be very underwhelming considering I know what he's capable of. Where was the Thomas Newman of Road To Perdition, Wall-E, and Revolutionary Road? Well, I think we found him. This unsuspecting little film starring some of England's best talent has a genuinely stunning score behind it.

The film of course takes place in India so we immediately have a distinct flavor in the instrumentation. It's not overwhelming though and doesn't go overboard with the Indian sounds. This is very much a Thomas Newman score and he handles it impeccably. There so many subtle nuances to it that we get lost in the little emotions of it. While there is an obvious exotic quality to the music it somehow manages to create a sense of awe. And by awe I don't mean that it's Return Of The King or anything. There is a sense of wonder and beneath it all a layer of mischievous fun. It handles everything in a delicate fashion and in that it becomes something special. By the end of the listening experience there is a such a grand human spirit infused within it that it becomes hard not to fall in love with.

The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel is a score that emerges from a lively human spirit within its core. Newman then sprinkles the flavors and textures on it to ground its setting. However, underneath all of it there is something really great here that sparks the best of light emotional fare. This is Newman's best score since Wall-E and it's a wonderful experience.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Soundtrack to a Fantastic Movie October 31, 2012
By Kristin
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This movie is the best I've seen in years; the second time I watched it and focused more on the music, I knew I had to have the soundtrack! The CD has 21 tracks, some short, but all are unique variations of Indian music. It's a great traveling CD, which is what was usually taking place when the music was featured in the movie. I never dreamed I would love a CD like this so much; I listen to it over and over while driving. The upbeat music is an energy-booster, and the meditative tunes with occasional chants are calming, and pick up speed, drifting into faster music with a great beat. I sincerely recommend this CD to music lovers who like variety, whether you have seen this wonderful movie or not.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Soundtrack! October 10, 2012
By Essayez

Love the soundtrack to The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel; at times it is beat-driven with wild violins, at other times soft, mysterious and haunting. Definitely takes me to India. Thank you, Thomas Newman!

5.0 out of 5 stars The music of forgiveness June 7, 2012
Format:MP3 Music
Perhaps it only works after you've seen the movie, but for me some of these tracks are a reminder that after all that's been done, forgiveness is still possible. How can some music do this?? Very sweet. A haunting combination of Indian and Western tonalities and instruments, blending perfectly with the movie theme.
