The title track of Raarandoi Veduka Choodham is lyrically spectacular. The mood is boisterous. The theme is just one thing: love. As a marriage song, it celebrates the relationships. Ramajogayya Sastry’s last stanza takes the cake for its evocative use of metaphors. Kalam komma pai, merise navvulai and Kalise guvvale bandhuvulu take the cake.
Rendered to a scintillating effect by Ranjith and Gopika Purnima, the number is a healthy mix of sharp (male) and soft (female) vocals. As for Devi Sri Prasad, he seems to mellow down to ensure that there is a touch of Micky J Meyer-ism. A Rock Star of his stature changing his style is always welcome.
Rarandoi Veduka Chuddam is Chaitanya’s 13th film and his first after his engagement with longtime sweetheart Samantha Ruth Prabhu. The film is directed by Kalyan Krishna and is bankrolled by the actor’s star father Nagarjuna Akkineni under his home production banner Annapurna Studios. The film was expected to hit the screens in the second week of May. However, the release has been postponed due to post-production reasons.
According to reports, Nagarjuna is having creative differences with director Kalyan on the project. The producer was not happy with the final cut of the film and has reportedly asked the director to re-work on a few scenes, delaying the release. The film was expected to open worldwide on May 12. Now the reports suggest, either the film will release on May 19 or in early June.
