How much ever we transform and adapt to the modern culture and influenced by the western world, we still have our roots here and when ever we get the taste of it, it brings out the local feeling in us irrespective of the place, profession and situation we are in. And “Pedda Puli” is one song that tops the list.
“Pedda Puli” those two words give dance vibes to any music lover especially in both the telugu speaking states. It’s a telangana folk song performed by various folk artists during bonalu festival where the song poetically explains the heroic deeds of Gandi Maisamma, one of the famous telangana local goddesses.
And now the song has been recreated by director krishna chaitanya and music director Thaman for the film “Chal Mohan Ranga”. Pawan Kalyan Creative Works and Trivikram have combined with Sreshth Movies for Nithiin’s 25 directed by Krishna Chaitanya of “Rowdy Fellow” fame. Nithiin and Megha Akash are pairing up once again for this beautiful seasonal love story.
Hero introduction songs are always done keeping fans in mind and this being nithiin’s 25th movie, director krishna chaitanya has come up with this thought and blended it so well with the situation.
The song takes off when the hero gets his US visa clearance and is all high on celebration mode. And it’s being bonalu time, the energy around him takes his celebrations to next level.
Sahithi who is famous for his folk songs has written this song. His lyrics are a major asset to the song. He has come up with proper telangana words to match the song tempo without ruining the original song at any point.
And this time thaman used various kinds of drums especially folk ones to showcase the culture and the tradition of the song i.e. being carried through years. And this has actually enhanced the energy of the song.
N.Sudhacar Reddy, the producer of the movie has sourced everything for the song. From bringing in various kinds of folk performers to recreating the overall bonalu setup, he has done it all.
And Natty (T. Natarajan Subrmanian) has used the complete setup with the help of choreographer Sekhar.V.J. capturing each and every detail possible to give audience the real festival feel on the screen.
With the new found telugu folk singer Rahul Sipligunj holding the mic once again for this song, its all set to take audience for a folk ride bringing everyone on to the dance floor. Fans go merry in theaters from April 5th as the film is all set to release.
