The visuals for the Vasuki Vaibhav sung number have a lot of spoilers to the narrative
If you haven’t watched Garuda Gamana Vrishabha Vahana (GGVV) yet, you can catch it on Zee5 starting today. Do that before you watch the song Endo Bareda from the film, the video of which premiered a while ago online. In the run-up to the theatrical release of GGVV, when the makers dropped a lyrical video for the song with random stock images, one wondered why there were absolutely no visuals from the film. Upon watching GGVV, though, it became crystal clear why they could not afford to include actual footage for the lyrical video. This is, after all, a song that explains a major turning point in the narrative of GGVV.
Now that GGVV has concluded its theatrical run and begins its OTT outing, making it accessible to everyone who may have missed it earlier, it makes sense that the video of Endo Bareda also comes into the public domain. Explaining what is in the song would be disservice to the film, so, watch it first, until then, you can always tune in to Endo Bareda’s lyrical version. The mellifluous Endo Bareda, composed by Midhun Mukundan and written by Pavan Bhat, has been sung by Vasuki Vaibhav.
Garuda Gamana Vrishabha Vahana is Raj’s second directorial, which comes four years after his debut, Ondu Motteya Kathe. The story follows its protagonists, Shiva (Raj) and Hari (Rishab Shetty) two underworld dons in Mangaladevi, Mangaluru, whose reign of terror is stopped by a clever policeman, Brahmayya (Gopalkrishna Deshpande). Prior to the film’s release, Raj had said that he was inspired to write the tale after seeing a Yakshagana performance about ego hassles between the gods. The characters, Shiva, Hari and Brahmayya were modelled on the trimurti deities. Taken in by the strength of the story, actor-filmmaker Rakshit Shetty threw his might behind the project and presented it to the world under his Paramvah Studios.
Garuda Gamana Vrishabha Vahana is currently streaming on Zee5.
