Phalana Abbayi Phalana Ammayi, a romance drama starring Naga Shaurya and Malvika Nair, directed by Srinivas Avasarala and produced by People Media Factory in collaboration with Dasari Productions, is releasing in theatres on March 17. While three songs composed by Kalyani Malik – Kanula Chatu Meghama, the title track and Neetho Ee Gadichina Kalam – were out recently, the fourth single, Kafeefi, which has music by Vivek Sagar, was out today.
Ben Human and Vishnupriya have crooned for the song written by Kittu Vissapragada. Kafeefi is a party number filmed at a pub on Naga Shaurya, Malvika, Sri Vidya, Abhishek Maharshi and others. While Kafeefi is a word sung by the lead pair on the stage initially, the crowds start finding it catchy and groove to it, much to their surprise.
After a series of warm melodies and a pathos number, Kafeefi lends a unique cosmopolitan flavour to the film’s album. The song is in the comfort zone of the composer, Vivek Sagar, known for his urban, peppy numbers with a catchy musical hook. The trendy orchestration is in sync with the vibe of the situation. Naga Shaurya and Malvika showcase their mettle on the dance floor and respond to choreographer Yash’s instructions with elan.
The opening lines ‘Nalugurilo unte..Chilipiga pothunte…Chanuvuki no no cheppede kafeefi’ have the lead pair elaborating on what kafeefi is all about – precisely, a person’s ability to draw a line even in tricky situations. The other stanzas in the song, with simple, relatable lyrics, emphasise several scenarios where the world around the couple misreads their equation, during which ‘kafeefi’ comes into play. Its happy-go-lucky spirit is sure to resonate with music buffs.
There’s a good buzz for Phalana Abbayi Phalana Ammayi ahead of its release this weekend. Right from the trailer to the teaser and the songs, the makers have promised a pleasant boy-meets-girl story spanning over a decade with stunning visuals, terrific performances and chemistry between the lead pair. Srinivas Avasarala, Megha Chowdhury, Ashok Kumar, Varanasi Soumya Chalamcharla, Harini Rao, Arjun Prasad, and others essay crucial roles in the film too.
