The song, composed by Ravi Basrur has been written by lyricist-filmmaker Chetan Kumar and sung by Vaish.
Kannada cinema’s Roaring Star Sriimurali was last seen onscreen in the 2019 Bharaate, which was directed by lyricist-turned-director Chetan Kumar. His next, which is tentatively being billed as a December 2021 release is Madhagaja, directed by S Mahesh Kumar, whose claim to fame was the hit Sathish Ninasam and Rachita Ram starrer Ayogya.
Mahesh is a close friend of Chetan, so, it is no wonder that the Madhagaja maker got the latter to write a pivotal song in the film. Released today, the song, Geleya Nanna Geleya, is, according to the team, a tribute to all couples. Composed by Ravi Basrur, the soulful number has been sung by Vaish, while the lyrical video features visuals of the lead pair, Sriimurali and Ashika Ranganath. This is the first time that Srrimurali and Ashika have collaborated and their pairing is something that audiences are eagerly looking forward.
The film, which was also delayed several times because of the pandemic, was shot at locations across Telangana, Karnataka and Uttar Pradesh. Produced by Umapathy Srinivas Gowda, the film is said to be a commercial entertainer with ample doses of action, comedy, romance and drama making it the perfect recipe for family viewing. Jagapathi Babu is the principal antagonist in this tale.
If Madhagaja does make it as a December release, it looks like an interesting slate for Kannada movie audiences. Since theatres reopened with 100% occupancy, films like Kotigobba 3, Salaga, Bhajarangi 2, Mugilpete, Badava Rascal and 777 Charlie have already confirmed release plans, making the last three months of the year, a truly filmi dhamaka.
