'Sadhu Kokila insisted on lending voice for Amma I Love You'
...says the film's director KM Chaitanya, as he talks to us about the album, which is being launched today
Music director Gurukiran wants to create magic with his songs for the upcoming film Amma I Love You, directed by KM Chaitanya. Made under Dwarakish Pictures and produced by Yogi Dwarakish, the film’s audio is getting released today. Speaking with CE, Chaitanya tells us that Amma I Love You is a musical, “and Gurukiran has done a great job with it.”
According to Chaitanya, one of the highlights of the film is Sadhu Kokila and Sunil Kashyap lending their voices for songs scored by Gurukiran. “We had recorded one of the songs with a known singer. But when Sadhu Kokila heard the track, he called up our producer Yogi and insisted that he lend his voice for the song, as the comedian actor-music director felt it was one of Gurukiran’s best compositions. He came to the studio and recorded the song at midnight, along with Sunil Kashyap. This song is special because it is sung by two music directors, for another music director,” says Chaitanya, adding that the song is “multi-layered and multi-textured. The film has has four tracks altogether, and in various genres.”
“Amma nanna ee janma ninna varadanavamma song, which is extremely emotional, has lyrics by Dr Nagendra Prasad. Another track written by him -- a fusion track -- is sung by Mahalakshmi Iyer and Santhosh Venky. We also have a pathos number, the composition of which is quite new for today. Folk song Ethutharo, which has philosophical lyrics, is written by Ghouse Peer,” says Chaitanya.
“The background score of Amma I Love You is an instrumental medley of chorus, sarangi and the sitar. The producer felt that they should go for Dolby Atmos to fully appreciate the beauty of Amma I Love You,” he adds.
The film, starring Chiranjeevi Sarja and Nishvika Naidu, has Sitara playing a mother’s role, which is said to be the film’s soul. The film is with the censor department now, and is likely to be released by mid June.
