'Gaju Koodide' underlines the pivotal moment in Sapta Sagaradaache Ello Side B that features all three principal cast members of the film, namely Rakshit Shetty, Rukmini Vasanth and Chaithra Achar
The 'lodge scene' from Sapta Sagaradaache Ello Side B is without a doubt one of the most memorable sequences from the film. Those who have watched the film would know that the said scene juxtaposes Manu's harsh reality against his desire to rekindle the past.
Beautifully choreographed and executed, Hemanth M Rao and his cinematographer Advaitha Gurumurthy exude great synergy in this particular sequence and their craft is perfectly complemented by the central cast of Side B. In fact, this happens to the only occurrence of all three principal characters of Manu, Priya and Surabhi featuring together.
Another extremely important element of the scene is the jazzy number composed by Charan Raj. Titled Gaju Koodide, the song is a romantic "lounge" track that elegantly underlines the pivotal moment in the film. While each song in the 'Sapta Sagaradaache Ello Side B' soundtrack has a 'personality' of its own, Gaju Koodide is likely to stand out for the mood it creates in the narrative.
Charan Raj himself has sung the song with Dhananjay Ranjan, who has written the lyrics for other Sapta Sagaradaache Ello songs like the title track (both Side A and Side B), Kaala Kaayiso Kade and Usire, penning the lyrics for Gaju Koodide.
Sapta Sagaradaache Ello Side B was released in theatres on November 17 to mixed to positive reviews, with several views showering praise on Rakshit Shetty's central performance in the film. The makers opted to release Side B simultaneously in four different languages in theatres including Kannada, Telugu, Tamil and Malayalam, mainly owing to the response that Side A of the film received outside Karnataka.
Sapta Sagaradaache Ello Side A debuted on the OTT on September 29 following an encouraging run but the team is yet to finalize the streaming details of Side B. In his recent conversation with OTTPlay, Rakshit Shetty, who has also produced the two-part film, disclosed that he has yet to bring a streamer on board.
