Rohit Padaki’s Dhananjaya’s Rathnan Prapancha was a film that involved a lot of travel, from Bengaluru to Kashmir to Gadag and Gokarna. One of the highlights of the film, which released on Amazon Prime Video last month, was the portions shot in Gadag, which featured Pramod, Vainidhi Jagdish and Shruthi, besides Dhananjaya and Reba Monica John, of course.

Pramod’s Udaal Babu Rao is madly in love with Benni (Vainidhi) and woos her, among other things, with the peppy dance number, Gicchi GiliGili. While the choreography of the song by A Harsha is, no doubt, stellar, what makes it extra special is that the late Puneeth Rajkumar had sung it. Composed by Ajaneesh Loknath, Gicchi GiliGili is one of the last songs of the Power Star, with official records showing Naan Olleyavane from the upcoming Gajanana Gang as the other.

According to reports, singing Gicchi GiliGili was special to Puneeth because of his long-standing association with producer-distributor Karthik Gowda and Yogi G Raj, who backed Rathnan Prapancha. While a lyrical video was released earlier, the makers have now made the full video available. The song, about smiling through tough situations, is even more interesting with the accompanying visuals, with Pramod quite literally dancing his heart out along with Vainidhi, and joined occasionally by Reba.

Released on Amazon Prime on October 22, Rohit’s film also stars Umashree, Anu Prabhakar-Mukherjee, Achyuth Kumar and Ravishankar in pivotal roles. On its release, the film received positive reviews from critics and audiences alike, especially for Rohit’s sensitive handling of the subject.
