Music is by Harris Jeyaraj; film direction by Lingusami
CHENNAI: Team ‘Bheema’ is all set for the film’s audio launch next week. Director Lingusami seems more than happy with Harris Jayaraj’s music.
Harris, along with the director, flew to Singapore where two songs were composed. One song ‘Mudal malai...’, has been shot in Switzerland. Another number ‘Ragasiya kanavugal…’, at the Tirumalai Nayakkar Mahal in Madurai.
A song that goes ‘Rangu Rangamma..’ has been shot on a ship at Tuticorin. A ship engaged exclusively for this song was modified to suit the jazzy number that features actors Vikram and Sherin.
“We have blended a very interesting wedding sequence in this song,” the director adds. “We shot this song using super 35 (a camera lens option) for variety.”
For another song ‘Tiru paarvaiyaalae..’, the crew had to change the sets after listening to Harris’ final version. “After listening to the basic tune, I wanted a particular set and we went ahead with it. But the final version was mind blowing and demanded much more than that,” Mr. Lingusami says. Hariharan, Karthik, Naresh Iyer, Sadhna Sargam, Madhushree, Mahati and Nikil Mathew have sung for the film. Lyricists Pa.Vijay and Yugabharathy have penned two songs each, while Tamarai and Na.Muthukumar have written one each.
This film brings together Lingusami and Harris for the first time, and the director is evidently pleased with the music and the choreography by Brinda and Kalyan. Rajeevan, who worked in ‘Kaaka Kaaka’, is the art director and R.D. Rajasekaran the cinematographer.
The film, produced by A.M. Rathnam’s Sri Surya Movies, is expected to hit theatres by early September.
