AllMusic Review by

At times moving, whimsical, or celebratory, Thomas Newman's score for the second in the Marigold Hotel film series mixes Eastern and Western influences, blending Indian scales, rhythms, and instruments with a Western orchestra -- to varying degrees, as some tracks, like one-minute music box piece "Aaina," are more stripped down than others. As on his score for the first installment of the series, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, it features appearances by Indian musicians and vocalists. Released on Sony Classical in early 2015, the soundtrack includes four Hindi-language songs co-written with Bollywood talent including Pritam and Himesh Reshammiya.
