For the young composer Rajesh Murugesan, it is a dream-come-true, with his silver screen debut, Tamil-Malayalam bilingual ‘Neram’. The movie stars Nivin Pauly and Nazriya Nazim in the lead. What is adding colours to Rajesh’s dreams is nothing but applauding response from the audience!
The ‘Neram’ team released a promo song ‘Pistah: The Run Anthem’, and that has run millions of miles, grossing close to 3 lakh views in under a week. It doesn’t end there, cine-town big names have vouched for the song; to name one, Shruti Hassan appreciated the song in her micro-blog.
The opening lines of the song were actually taken from a Malayalam comedy track from ‘Kinnaram’, featuring Jagathy Sreekumar. “Though the lyrics are wacky, audience are able to follow the pulse of the song. The success of this song shows that people are accepting new ideas in music.” adds the composer.
Rajesh landed this dream project through the platform offered to him by ‘Naalaya Iyakkunar’, where composed for Karthik Subburaj’s short films. And what about Karthik? He is already a big name, with his silver screen debut ‘Pizza’.
