This is the first single from the film, composed by Sridhar V Sambhram and sung by Nakul Abhyankar and Shwetha Devanahalli.
Manu Ravichandran’s next, Mugilpete, is a film that he is very proud of. Directed by Bharath Navunda, the film has Pune-lass Kayadu Lohar in the lead along with Manu. A romantic drama, Mugilpete is a film that Manu believes will pave the way for his strong comeback in the Kannada industry.
In fact, the actor has been taking a personal interest in the complete making of the film, sitting in for music recordings, editing, graphic work, dubbing, etc. With the film set to be released on November 4, Manu has now launched the first single from it, Tareefu Maadalu, set to tune beautifully by Sridhar V Sambhram and sung by Nakul Abhyankar and Shwetha Devanahalli.
Featuring the lead pair amid sets and graphics, the visuals of the not only song capture their chemistry, but also give off a 90s feel. As for the music, Sridhar has earlier said that Manu was quite the perfectionist, getting the composer to do multiple versions for each of the songs, that would be sent up and down between them after each variation, until the actor felt that they were perfect.
Speaking about the film in an earlier interaction with OTTplay, Manu had said, ““Audiences will see a different Manu in this film. Be it the performance, in emotional scenes, comedy or romance, or my Kannada diction, there is a marked improvement from what I have done earlier. Also, I have two distinct looks in the film – one in present day and another in a flashback. But Mugilpete is not only about me. There are some interesting characters, like, for instance, Sadhu (Kokila) sir, who has 16 different get-ups, which we are trying to get certified as a record; Avinash sir plays my father, while Rangayana Raghu has an important role. Kayadu Lohar, who is making her Kannada film debut opposite me has also done a fantastic job. Her character is very important to the narrative. Rishi has done a cameo in the film.”
