When the first teaser of Vikrant Rona came out, and subsequently the trailer too, one thing that most definitely stood out is the Gumma Banda Gumma background score. In the run-up to the film’s release, music composer B Ajaneesh Loknath and director Anup Bhandari, who’s been filling in as lyricist also on this film, got together and made a full song out of this segment. A two-and-a-half- minute Gumma Banda Gumma Devil’s Fury theme was released moments ago and features the vocals of both Ajaneesh and Anup, as well as that of Harshika Devanath and Deepak Blue. According to the film team’s initial promotional plan, only one more song remains to be released – Chikki Bombe.
Vikrant Rona is Ajaneesh’s third collaboration with Anup, after Rangitaranga and Rajaratha, but his first in handling both the songs and the background score, having only done the background score for the other two films. Naturally, all eyes have been on Ajaneesh and the tunes he comes up with for Kiccha Sudeep’s much-awaited 3D fantasy-action-adventure film. The first song, Gadang Rakkamma – The Queen of Good Times, has had a phenomenal outing, even though only a lyrical video with a very fleeting glimpse of its hook step was released. The hook step, has, since then, become one of the most popular reels on social media. Even Sudeep did his first-ever reel to the song.
The team followed that up with Rajkumari – Lullaby song, which was about a father-daughter relationship. The third was Hey Fakira, a song about Nirup Bhandari’s character Sanjeev Gambhira and his return to his hometown, back to meet his mother.
Vikrant Rona will release in theatres in 3D on July 28. The film has been produced by Shalini and Manjunath Gowda of Shalini Artss and co-produced by Alankar Pandian of Invenio Origin.
