Ravi Basrur has hit it out of the park with this composition, reckon netizens about the first single from Salaar Ceasefire
The first single from Salaar: Ceasefire is out and going by the buzz on social media, the Ravi Basrur composition has clicked with fans. Called Sooreede, the slow pathos number, is being hailed for its emotional quotient – both in terms of the lyrics and the vocals – as well as for the fleeting glimpses of Rebel Star Prabhas, that fans can’t get enough of. While KGF was about mother sentiment, Salaar, as director Prashant Neel has clarified, is about friendship. While Sooreede has a soothing quality to it, one cannot help but shake the feeling that it has a Gagana Nee (from KGF) hangover.
Comments on social media are largely positive with glowing praise for Ravi and singer Harini, although some audiences have admitted that they were expecting a more upbeat number as the first single from the film. “Ravi Basrur has hit it out of the park”, read one comment, while another said, “Prashant Neel and Ravi Basrur combination is just lit”. “Sooreede evokes pure emotion; it’s a heart-touching song and Prabhas is swag ka baap”, was yet another comment about the song. The overall buzz about the song has been largely similar.
Meanwhile, Salaar: Ceasefire, which stars Prabhas, Prithviraj Sukumar, Pramod, Jagapathi Babu, Shruti Haasan, Naveen Krishna, among many others, will be in theatres on December 22 in Telugu, Kannada, Hindi, Tamil, Telugu and Malayalam. The film has cinematography by Prashant’s regular collaborator Bhuvan Gowda. Advance bookings for the film will open on December 15. Although fans have been complaining that the promotions of Salaar: Ceasefire have been lacklustre, the film is expected to open big and trump competition from Shah Rukh Khan’s Dunki, especially in the south.
