Director SS Rajamouli released the music video for the song “Janani” from his upcoming RRR masterpiece on Friday, coinciding with the celebration of India’s Constitution Day. “Janani” is an ode to the countless sacrifices that were made to secure freedom from the tyranny of the British Raj.
In addition to composing the soulful melody, MM Keeravaani also sang “Janani”. The images that accompany the music video are full of emotions and invoke patriotism. The images show the atrocities committed against the Indians by the British, such as indiscriminately opening fire on unarmed people and even killing children. The song also gives us an insight into the sacrifices of RRR heroes. From suffering incarnation, facing torture, losing loved ones, or losing one’s life in the fight for freedom, Rajamouli promises a series of high-octane moments.
“RRR throbs with many fast-paced moments. Behind all those spectacular sequences there is a consuming emotion that elevates them. Shaping that same heartbeat musically was one of the most rewarding experiences, ”reads a comment by Keeravaani, played before the song begins.
SS Rajamouli also described the song, written by MM Keeravaani, as the soul of RRR. “# Janani / # Uyire is the crux, the heart and the soul of #RRRMovie in its most heartfelt form … (sic),” he tweeted as he revealed the song.
Besides Telugu, the song has also been released in Tamil as “Uyire”. The song title remains “Janani” for the Malayalam, Kannada and Hindi versions.
SS Rajamouli has launched the RRR promotional campaign. Made on a Rs 300 million budget, the film stars Ram Charan, Jr NTR, Alia Bhatt, Ajay Devgan, Shriya Saran, Olivia Morris, Ray Stevenson, and Alison Doody, among others.
RRR is a fictional story based on the struggles of Telugu tribal leaders Alluri Sitarama Raju and Komaram Bheem. While Ram Charan will be seen in the role of Sitarama, Jr NTR rehearses Komaram in RRR.
After missing its theatrical release multiple times due to the pandemic, the film will finally hit screens worldwide on January 7, just a week before the Sankranti festival. The film will collide with several other major blockbusters, including Prabhas’s Radhe Shyam and Alia Bhatt’s Gangubai Kathiawadi at the box office.
