RRR, the historical fiction drama by SS Rajamouli, has music by MM Keeravaani
The much anticipated second single from SS Rajamouli's magnum opus RRR, starring Jr NTR, Ram Charan, Ajay Devgn, Alia Bhatt, Olivia Morris, Samuthirakani, Alison Doody and Ray Stevenson is here. Naatu Naatu is a quintessential mass number that brings together Jr NTR and Ram Charan in the same frame. Need we say more? The song in the film, shot amid a lavishly designed set resembling a British palace, has a young Alluri Seetharamaraju and Komaram Bheem entertaining guests at a gathering.
'Polamgattu Dummulona Potla Githa Dookinattu, Poleramma Jatharalo Potharaju Ooginattu..Kirru Seppulesukoni Karrasamu Sesinattu,' the Chandrabose-lyricised song takes off with several references to life at the country side, before Jr NTR and Ram Charan break into a jig together, grooving in perfect sync with one another. The musical hook is as catchy as it can get and the viewer is offered a few glimpses of what went into the song's making. SS Rajamouli, Olivia Morris, Jr NTR and Ram Charan engage in intense discussions, while sweating it out during the rigorous rehearsals as well.
Late into the song, even Olivia Morris joins her co-stars to shake a leg and completely enjoys her moment as well. The number gains a lot of momentum in the final stretch, where MM Keeravani surprises with the sudden change in the musical tempo. It's hard to listen to Naatu Naatu and not groove to it. SS Rajamouli finds a way to take the story forward and still please the masses without losing out on the magnificence of the setting. Prem Rakshith has choreographed the number, while Rahul Sipligunj and Kaala Bhairava have crooned for it.
The Tamil, Hindi, Malayalam and Kannada versions of Naatu titled Naatu Koothu, Naacho Naacho, Karinthol and Halli Naatu respectively were also released simultaneously. RRR is produced by DVV Danayya under DVV Entertainment and has story by V Vijayendra Prasad. KK Senthil Kumar has cranked the camera for the film, with ace technicians Sreekar Prasad and Sabu Cyril handling the edits and production design respectively.
