Looks like the makers of Kasada Tabara, which is currently streaming on SonyLIV, is leaving no stone unturned in promoting the movie even after a week of its release on the streaming platform. After releasing videos which had the film's cinematographers and editors sharing their BTS experiences, they have now come up a four-minute video in which its six composers - Yuvan Shankar Raja, Santosh Narayanan, Ghibran, Sam CS, Sean Roldan and Premgi - have briefed on their experiences of having collaborated for a unique project. Kasada Tabara, which has six different short films, all linked with each other, had Chimbudeven at the helm and Venkat Prabhu as one of its producers.  

Yuvan expressed happiness for composing background score and a song for the beautiful love story which had Premgi playing the protagonist. What attracted Sean Roldan was the manner in which the different stories were narrated. He said, "When we assume that a character's story is complete, the screenplay surprises us with its rebirth in another story. This aspect was something new and interesting."

Thanking Chimbudeven for the opportunity, Premgi said that he was happy to have acted in a love story, and that he had a beautiful pair in the film. Yuvan, who taught him music, composed background score for the part in which he played the lead. "That was the interesting part for me," he said, adding, "I was excited that I worked as a composer for the movie along with five vera level composers."

For Santhosh Narayanan, working for the project was like collaborating for an indie film. He played music for the portion which had Venkat Prabhu playing the protagonist. He said, "The segment was about hope in life. I loved working for it. The spirit of fighting for a cause was the theme of the story, and I had a great time composing for it." 

The idea of six composers working together for a film is what made Sam CS elated. "I think it was a first-of-its-kind attempt with multiple technicians working together. The segment I played had lot to do with emotions, and hence, I focused more on live instrument and orchestra. The story, director and production team, everything made me give my best," he said.

According to Ghibran, every six story has proper beginning and end, offering a different experience. The film, he believes, provides another form of experience when watched as a whole. He said, "There were portions in which I had to score without much percussion and rhythm instruments, which was a challenge. I loved the butterfly effect which was incorporated in all the stories."
