Charan Raj has scored the music.

ichcha Sudeep released the music album of the film Mandya to Mumbai at a function in Bengaluru on Monday evening. The actor has himself sung a song Deola Deola without taking any remuneration for rendering it.

Speaking at the function before being felicitated by the team, Sudeep said he had sung the song simply because he wanted to encourage newcomers as he remembered the days when he made his debut. He said the industry needed newcomers to take it forward while likening the industry to that of flowing water.

Earlier, addressing journalists, debutant director Vaardhik Joseph who is son of drummer Deva said Mandya to Mumbai is a remake of Tamil film Renigunta. He said the Tamil original was natural and thought that the film would be technically fresh to take it to the Kannada audiences even after six years. He said comedy scenes had been incorporated and songs were freshly done to suit local tastes.

Joseph said he had employed two cameramen Darshan Kannaka and Vishwesh Shiva Prasad with two cameras during the filming to capture different angles for every scene.

Director Joseph said the film has six songs for which Charan Raj has composed the tunes. Charan Raj himself said being a music arranger for so many years he chose Sudeep to render a song for the film so that the team could get a dramatic voice.

Director Joseph has been shot in Mandya, Mysuru, Tumakuru, Chitradurga and Bengaluru.

Rakesh Adiga who is playing the lead said he is playing an innocent village guy who gets spoilt due to bad company. Debutante Amruta said she was doubtful when she was offered the lead role of a village girl but was happy to accept it.

Sanjana said she liked the fresh approach to the story and the team’s enthusiasm to make a technically good film. She said she gained further confidence after she had finished dubbing and was looking forward to the release of the film.

Madhuri said it was fun to be part of the song sung by Sudeep and to dance to it. The film stars Shekar, Chirag and Chetan in roles of boys.

Mandya to Mumbai is produced by Jothi Lingam.
