A still from DJ Tillu

Siddhu Jonnalagadda and Neha Shetty's thriller comedy, DJ Tillu, helmed by Vimal Krishna and produced by Suryadevara Naga Vamsi under Sithara Entertainments, is getting ready for a release on January 14. The first song from the Sankranti release, Tillu Anna DJ Pedithe, a full-on local, massy dance number, sung and composed by the latest music sensation Ram Miriyala was launched today. Kasarla Shyam has written the lyrics.

The song aptly mirrors the spirit of Siddhu's character as a local Hyderabadi DJ in the film, has a catchy musical hook and an enjoyable Telangana folk flavour to it as well. The song starts off with the lines 'Lalaguda Amberpeta Mallepalli Malakpeta..Tillu anna dj pedithe tilla tilla aadalaa..' and has ample references that'll resonate with a Hyderabadi. 

Tillu Anna DJ Pedithe is an enthusiastic, foot-tapping number has great rhythm, while Siddhu's dance moves in the lyrical video can certainly tempt you to hit the dance floor immediately. One can also notice a few glimpses of Telangana traditions, festivals including the Pothuraju dance in the film. Siddhu's attitude is complemented by the energetic music beats. The song has an undeniable indie-music touch, all thanks to Ram Miriyala who gives it a deserved showcase in a mainstream film.

"Vimal Krishma, the director wanted a song that'll reflect Siddhu's character in the film and the catchy tune was an instant inspiration to write it well. The Hyderabadi flavour in the composition comes through effortlessly and I felt it was apt to include the names of various areas in the city in the pallavi," lyricist Kasarla Shyam shares. Bhanu has choregraphed the number.

S Thaman has been roped in to compose the background score for DJ Tillu, which also has music by Sri Charan Pakala. Prince Cecil, Brahmaji, Pragathi and Narra Srinivas play supporting roles. Siddhu has also co-written the script and dialogues for the same. Sai Prakash Ummadisingu has cranked the camera while Avinash Kolla and Navin Nooli are the art director and editor respectively.
