Eight different looks

Eight different looks

Good-looking: Vijay Raghavendra and Pooja Gandhi in a traditional Mysore attire.

The Gokula team is said to be having a blast on the sets. With director Prakash’s latest experiment, Mano Murthy’s romantic number Aaraamagi, only proves that he keeps excelling each time. Known to be the entire crew’s favourite song, this romantic number penned by Jayanth Kaikini is special because of its eight costume changes and locations. Speaking to Metrolife, Prakash says, “It’s a dreamy number which features Pooja Gandhi and Vijay Raghavendra. We didn’t want this to look like a typical romantic number, so we decided to go with eight costume changes and we managed to pull it off in four days.”

The eight costumes include two modern looks plus a Mysore, Coorgi, Kerala, Marwari, Bengali to a Punjabi look and the actors are said to have done an excellent job. “Without the amazing co-operation of both the actors, we couldn’t have finished the song this soon,” adds Prakash. What’s more, choreographer Harsha, made sure that the hero and the heroine do not touch or even come close to each other throughout the song.

“We have tried to showcase romance just through eyes and words. It was difficult but Harsha has done a very good job of it,” adds Prakash. Interestingly, the songs have all been shot in empty villages to provide a postcard look. With a different background with each costume, the beauty of the songs show really well.

After many hit films, Gokula is one movie that the audience is looking forward to. Ask Prakash what we can expect and he says humbly, “A good film.” Let’s wait and watch.
