Getting to know Raavan better through these songs

By June 13, 2010 No Comments

At the beginning of their new collaboration Raavan, director Mani Ratnam told composer A R Rahman and writer Gulzar the theme song for the movie ought to reflect the way he would interpret the film’s central character, Rahman recalled the other day.

The song Beera beera is sung by Vijay Prakash with an African singer Mustafa Kutone providing the chanting. “Like the character in the Ramayana, the key character in the film is a complex and brilliant character,” Rahman recalled recently.

“But Mani Sir also said that it will be portrayed different from the usual image.” There will be more of an exploration of the character than a judgmental portrait, the composer said.
