Warning: I slept very badly last night for no reason, my brain fingers not working right, there will be typos.
99 Songs! AR Rahman’s first movie as a producer! The soundtrack partially dropped a long long time ago, but no trailer or release date for AGES.
And now the trailer is here! Pretty much what you would expect, a little boy who loves music fights against his family and society to pursue his genius, falls in love, gets his heart broken, blah blah blah music. I am a little worried because later in the trailer he is wearing hospital scrubs which makes me think this is a “my heart was broken and I went insane” movie and also HOW IS THAT A WHOLE GENRE OF FILM IN INDIA????? How many people actually enjoy watching folks go insane (literally insane) thanks to a broken heart?
On the other hand, the visuals are AWESOME. I suspect that purely as a kind of collection of music videos, this film will be amazing. Oh, and I think I saw Manisha Koirala for half a second as an encouraging music teacher, that seems great too.
