The song from the Malayalam remake of Andhadhun seems to be the stand-in track for Naina Da Kya Kasoor from Ayushmann Khurrana’s film
The first track from Prithviraj Sukumaran’s Bhramam, the Malayalam remake of Andhadhun, is a peppy number that promises the fun aspects from the black comedy thriller featuring the protagonist and Raashi Khanna.
The song, rendered by the film’s composer Jakes Bejoy, will be the stand-in track for Naina Da Kya Kasoor from Ayushmann Khurrana’s film. The lyrics of the song is written by BK Harinarayan and like the usual Jakes compositions, it’s packed with instrumentation from ukelel, guitalele and banjitar to the conventional acoustic and bass guitars and flute.
In an earlier interview with OTTplay, Prithviraj told us why he was keen to take up the remake when he was approached by producer Mukesh R Mehta. “I think it’s important that content not only travels from South to North. I think it’s crucial that down the line when a filmmaker makes a movie and that content can travel, it shouldn’t just be that South films are being remade. It would be nice to have the other way round too. I think Andhadhun as a film has content that lends itself very well to Malayalam. I hope I will be proven right when you see the movie,” he said.
Bhramam’s release, meanwhile, will also a first-of-its-kind in Malayalam cinema. The movie will release on Amazon Prime Video on October 7 in India while it will release in theatres in rest of the world on the same day. Apart from Prithviraj and Raashi Khanna, the film also has Mamta Mohandas, Unni Mukundan, Ananya, Shankar, Surabhi Lakshmi and Sudhi Koppa. The movie went on floors in Fort Kochi earlier this year.
Bhramam will mark Prithviraj’s third consecutive OTT release after Tanu Balak’s investigative thriller Cold Case and Manu Warrier’s Kuruthi – both of which are currently streaming on Amazon Prime Video.
