‘Deva Deva’: Ranbir Kapoor discovers his fire power in new Brahmastra song
The song is voiced by Arijit Singh with music by Pritam
‘Deva Deva’, the new song from Ayan Mukerji’s Brahmastra Part One: Shiva, was released on Monday. The song is voiced by Arijit Singh and Jonita Gandhi. It is composed by Pritam Chakraborty with lyrics by Amitabh Bhattacharya.
The song encapsulates the moment in the film where Shiva, played by Ranbir Kapoor, discovers his majestic abilities of controlling fire.
Talking about his experience of the song, Ranbir shared, “I thoroughly enjoyed the song, and could relate to it on so many levels personally. Pritam Da, Arijit, Amitabh, and Ayan have put in a lot of effort to create this masterpiece. The song makes one feel spiritually powerful with a rare ease.”
Sharing his viewpoint on the audio-visual brilliance of the song, Ayan said, “I don't think there could have been a better time to release the song than on Shravan Somvar. The auspicious occasion just syncs with the captivating melody of the song and the spiritual visuals of Ranbir’s character - Shiva, exploring his fire power.”
Sharing his experience on composing the track, Pritam said, “Brahmāstra’s album has made me think aloud in terms of bringing in spiritual elements within a song. With ‘Deva Deva’, we have modernised the music, while keeping classical and devotional elements prominently. This spiritual song gives an otherworldly experience, and it was honestly enlightening to create it.”
Produced by Star Studios, Dharma Productions, Prime Focus and Starlight Pictures Brahmastra Part One: Shiva will release theatrically on September 9 in 5 Indian languages – Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam and Kannada. It has an ensemble cast of Amitabh Bachchan, Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Mouni Roy and Nagarjuna Akkineni.
