Pizza

What it is about…

Pizza , produced by C.V. Kumar and written and directed by Karthik Subbaraj, is a romantic thriller starring Vijay Sethupathi, Ramya Nambeesan, Adukalam Narain, Jaikumar, Simha, Pooja, Karuna and Veera Santhanam. The story is about how a pizza delivery boy lands in a mysterious circumstance and how it works a dramatic change in his life. Another interesting aspect is pizza, considered junk food, assumes a character in the film. Santhosh Narayanan has scored the music. The audio of the film was released in the presence of directors S.A. Chandrasekaran, Prabu Solomon and Seenu Ramasamy and other big wigs of the Tamil film industry.

Music highlights

Santhosh Narayanan has experimented with the music in Pizza by foraying into a genre, different from the folk sound of his earlier Attakathi .

The album features an instrumental version by Grammy award winning Phil Hartl and his quartet, which is a standout. The same number, ‘Mugathirai’, is sung by Pradeep where the cello is notable — and the lyrics are by Kabilan. Vinnai Thaandi Varuvaya ‘Aromale’ fame Alphons Joseph has got back to his heavy metal style for the composition ‘Engo Odugindrai’, written by Arun Raja — he has rendered the song with Darshana. ‘Gaana’ Bala impresses in ‘Dhinakkudha’ written by Muthamil — here the trumpet section is good. ‘Rathiri,’ sung by Haricharan and written by Arun Raja, is a blend of disco, funk and a retro string arrangement. ‘Rathiri’ has two more versions with rap by Vineeth Mani. The film’s theme in the voice of Brinda is already a hit online. Leon Zervos has mastered the album in Studios 301, Australia.
