Kantara fame Ajaneesh Loknath is the composer of the film. Karthik has crooned for the first single, Nachavule Nachavule. lyricised by Krishna Kanth. The feel-good melody, unveiled today, is born out of a fairly familiar situation - the male lead is gradually falling for the charms of a girl and the latter too is responding to his advances.
The number makes for a pleasant hearing with effective orchestration minus any cacophony. The song also sheds light on various traditions in a small-town while focusing on the couple’s growing fondness for one another. Karthik’s charming voice has time and again proved to be a perfect fit for romantic numbers and Nachavule Nachavule is another comfortable addition to the list.
‘Nachavule Nachavule..Ye roju chusano aa rojee..,’ the song goes and Krishna Kanth keeps the lyrics simple yet lends it adequate charm. With cinematography by Uppena, Ranga Ranga Vaibhavanga fame Shamdat Sainudeen, the film is edited by Navin Nooli. Vijay Binni is the choreographer and Sri Nagendra Tangala is the production designer respectively. Virupaksha releases on April 21.
