The trailer of 99 Songs is out. Produced by the Mozart of Madras, AR Rahman, 99 Songs marks the debut of its lead actors — Ehan Bhatt and Edilsy Vargas. The movie has been directed by Vishwesh Krishnamoorthy.
The visuals of 99 Songs are hanging, additionally because of its engaging fundamental forged. Manisha Koirala makes a fleeting look in the promo. So far, 99 Songs looks like an entertaining, nearly fantastical musical drama. The digicam work and visible results are strong. But the story appears slightly jaded — that of a younger artiste who falls, rises and seemingly finds his final redemption in the ‘magic of music.’
The music, of course, sounds nice, and with AR Rahman scoring it, that is not even shocking. What stays to be seen is if the magic that is promised in the trailer will translate itself successfully on display screen.
Speaking about 99 Songs, AR Rahman stated in a press release, “As part of my production company, YM Movies, I’m happy to collaborate with Jio Studios in bringing together this experiential movie. ‘99 Songs’ is about one man’s struggle against the old and the new world. And the antidote is music. It’s my pleasure to introduce the film’s director Vishwesh Krishnamoorthy and a talented cast comprising Ehan Bhatt and Edilsy Vargas. It was a great experience working with icons like Manisha Koirala and Lisa Ray, and music legends Ranjit Barot and Rahul Ram.”
The synopsis of 99 Songs reads, “The movie follows the journey of a young man named Jay whose life centers around his two great loves: music and his girlfriend Sophie.”
99 Songs will launch in theatres on April 16.
