The makers of the upcoming socio-political satire ‘Yeh Hai Bakrapur’, have released the video of their promotional song ‘Om Shanti Om‘, paying a tribute to Bollywood on the occasion of 100 years of Indian cinema.
Here’s the video:
The lyrics of the song have phrases from several Bollywood films weaved in to form meaningful lyrics. The upbeat number has been composed by the popular Indian band Agnee. The song is written by lyricist Panchhi Jalonvi and sung by K. Mohan and Keerthi Sangathia. Symbolizing everything glorious that Bollywood represents, the song is sure to have everyone humming its tune.
Says lead actor Anshuman Jha,“I have grown up on Bollywood. And am thankful to use the song as an opportunity to pay ode – Bakrapur style – to the industry that inspired me”.
‘Yeh Hai Bakrapur’ songs are available for free download on Agnee’s Official Facebook page, with a cause associated with every track. If listeners like the Song ‘Om Shanti Om’, they can contribute to ‘Dharavi Rocks’. It is an educational music and dance project initiated by the Acorn Foundation, an NGO working with slum kids and rag pickers. Agnee has been associated with the project since its inception.
‘Yeh Hai Bakrapur’ revolves around the Qureshi family and their pet goat Shahrukh, set against the rural political background of the village of Bakrapur. It promises to take viewers through a rib-tickling, roller coaster journey of twists and turns. Written and directed by Janaki Vishwanathan, known for her National Award winning film ‘Kutty’ in Tamil, and produced by Ramesh Sriivatsava Aruunachalam, ‘Yeh Hai Bakrapur‘ is slated to release on 9th May.
