Hemanth M Rao recently kick-started the promotional journey of his next directorial, Sapta Sagaradaache Ello, which will be in theatres in two parts. The first, which is being called Side A, is releasing on September 1. In the run-up to a film’s release, normally, teams reveal a few songs, a teaser and/or trailer. Hemanth, who has reunited with composer Charanraj for a third time (after Godhi Banna Sadharana Mykattu and Kavaludaari), has dropped only one song so far – a rap/melody track called Horaata. “There’s lots more in store,” said Hemanth, during his first-ever Twitter space promotion on Sunday evening.


“So far, we have released only one song, but in total, across Side A and Side B of Sapta Sagaradaache Ello, there are 12 songs – six in each. This is an album that Charan and I enjoyed putting together. We are very excited about presenting this to audiences," said Hemanth, adding that the team is a a tad nervous about how it will be received, but that they are confident that people will like it. 

He also said that the team is currently working on the release of the second song from the film. In all, he will release three songs prior to the film’s theatrical outing and the other three songs will be released later. “Sapta Sagaradaache has a lot of music in it. I like telling my stories with music. In Godhi Banna and Kavaludaari also, I had used music (montages) to take the narrative forward. There is a poetry to the music we have used in Sapta Sagaradaache Ello,” he added.

What kind of music can be expected on the soundtrack? Hemanth says that since his first collaboration with Charan, the duo have always veered off the beaten path and tried to present a fresh sound in tunes that they would like to listen to. "Even with the Horaata song, I knew rap would be apt for the sequence, but I also wanted it to have a certain melody to it. Charan is perhaps the only composer who will take up such unusual requests and deliver phenomenal music,” said Hemanth.
