Fans of actor Prabhas have been waiting with bated breath for updates surrounding his next release, Radhe Shyam, an epic romance directed by Radha Krishna Kumar, in which the Baahubali star is paired alongside Pooja Hegde. The film is slated to hit theatres across the globe on January 14, 2022. A few promos from the film, including the motion poster, the glimpse released for Valentines Day and the character teaser of Prabhas as a palmist Vikramaditya, have left audiences craving for more. 

Much to the relief of movie lovers, the first single from the film, Ee Raathale, composed by Justin Prabhakaran, was launched on Monday, albeit with some delay (the single released nearly four hours late owing to a technical delay). Singers Yuvan Shankar Raja and Harini Ivaturi have crooned for the melody. While Krishna Kanth is the lyricist for the Telugu track, the likes of Madhan Karky, Joel Paul and Dhanunjay Ranjan have penned the lyrics for the Tamil, Malayalam and Kannada versions respectively.

Ee Raathale is nothing short of a visual feast for audiences, where the lead characters Vikramaditya and Prerana, played by Prabhas and Pooja Hegde appear in an animated avatar. The song has Prerana jumping off a train to enter Vikramaditya's car, after which they traverse past skies, islands and slip into a water body which leads them to the planets in the outer space. Though the digitally recreated avatars of Prabhas and Pooja Hegde could have been better, one can notice that a lot of thought has gone into the creation of the lyrical video.

Yuvan Shankar Raja and Harini's singing is impressive, though one wonders why a local name couldn't have picked for the male voice in the Telugu version. Harini's portions in the number, though, leave a profound impact. Justin Prabhakar has yet again proved himself as a quality melody maker with the first single of Radhe Shyam. 

A few days before the song launch, the singer Harini Ivaturi even penned a note, sharing, "Been waiting this for a long time. Dream come true. Excited to share that my new song which I sang with Yuvan (Sir) will be out on November 15. Huge thanks to Justin Prabhakaran sir for making me part of such a huge project."

Radhe Shyam, extensively shot in Italy, Georgia and Hyderabad also stars Sachin Khedekar, Bhagyashree, Kunal Roy Kapur, Sathyan, Priyadarshi, Murli Sharma, Sasha Chettri and Riddhi Kumar in key roles. The film was made in four languages simultaneously, including Hindi, Telugu, Tamil, and Malayalam. Manoj Paramahamsa has cranked the camera for the project. Academy-award winner Resul Pookutty is the sound designer while the songs have been choreographed by Vaibhavi Merchant. Nick Powell is the action director with veteran Kotagiri Venkateswara Rao handling the edits. R Raveendar is the production designer. 

Veteran actor and Prabhas' uncle Krishnam Raju is the presenter under Gopi Krishna Movies. Her daughter Praseedha Uppalapati is also one of the film's producers.
