Navarasa Nayaka Jaggesh’s film Raghavendra Stores has been in theatres for a week and the makers have now decided to share some more elements from it with the public in the hope that it will draw them to theatres. In the run-up to the theatrical outing, only a trailer and the song Single Sundara were released and now comes Gaalige Gandha, a song sung and composed by Ajaneesh Loknath. The soulful melody, which plays at a pivotal moment in the film, has been released as a lyrical video only.


Audiences who tuned in to hear the song have been all praise for composer Ajaneesh, not so much for the tune, but for his vocals. Ghouse Peer’s lyrics are also being appreciated. Some, though, have been pointing out that the song is reminiscent of a 777 Charlie number. The song release, reckon netizens, is because the film is expected to drop on Amazon Prime Video by the end of the month. It has been reported that Raghavendra Stores will be available to stream from May 26. The film had released in theatres on April 28, along with Ponniyin Selvan and Agent. Box office trackers have stated that the film’s gross collection so far is below Rs 3 crore, but the team has already declared that it is a success and celebrated the same.

The film, produced by Hombale Fims, is Jaggesh’s first collaboration with the banner. First announced as an August 2022 release, Raghavendra Stores was pushed ahead and was not heard of for a very long time, prompting industry insiders to wonder if all was well within the team. There were rumours that some of the lead actor’s comments following the failure of his film Thotapuri, which clashed with Hombale Films’ Kantara, had led to a rift, owing to which the banner was withholding Raghavendra Stores’ release. It was speculated that if at all the banner does give the film an outing, it would be directly on OTT.

But then, out of the blue, it was revealed that the film would get a theatrical release after all, amid the ongoing IPL, exam and election season.
