Phalana Abbayi Phalana Ammayi’s second single, a peppy title track, launched

*Bhaskarabhatla’s relatable lyrics and the lively rendition of Kalyani Malik and Nutana Mohan instantly resonate with a music buff

Phalana Abbayi Phalana Ammayi is a feel-good romance, starring Naga Shaurya and Malvika Nair, directed by Srinivas Avasarala and produced by People Media Factory in collaboration with Dasari Productions. Kalyani Malik scored the music for the film. After an overwhelming response to the first single Kanula Chatu Meghama, which grossed over a million views on Youtube, the makers unveiled the second single from the film, the title track, on Monday.

The composer Kalyani Malik himself and popular singer Nutana Mohan have crooned for the title track lyricised by Bhaskarabhatla Ravikumar. The upbeat melody elaborates on a typical ‘boy-meets-girl’ scenario, describing the various emotions that a boy and a girl go through, as they meet for the first time. From the excitement to surprises to inhibitions, the song beautifully expresses the little nothings between a couple in a blossoming relationship.

Perhaps it is these lines – ‘Kanulaki Kanulu Kavitha Rasenuga…Manasutho Manasu Kalupukoga..Okaraniki Okaru Chaduvuthu Murisipoyaru gammathugaa..’ – that sum up the spirit of the song, expressing how the protagonists are gradually falling in love after their first meeting. The alluring, vibrant orchestration is matched by the enthusiastic, charming renditions of Kalyani Malik and Nutana Mohan.

“This is more of an introduction song for the protagonists. Who’re they? When do they meet each other? How does their equation change with time? What’s the bond they share? Where is their relationship headed? I’ve tried to encapsulate Srinivas Avasarala’s thoughts in a song form. I’m very happy to have written this song and it’s great to collaborate with Avasarala (garu) after Jyo Achyutananda. I’ve written three songs in the film and it’s my privilege to have been associated with a renowned banner,” lyricist Bhaskarabhatla shared.

Phalana Abbayi Phalana Ammayi’s teaser too opened to fantastic feedback from critics and film buffs alike. The film is gearing up for a release on March 17. The romance also stars Srinivas Avasarala, Megha Chowdhury, Ashok Kumar, Abhishek Maharshi, Sri Vidya, Varanasi Soumya Chalamcharla, Harini Rao, Arjun Prasad, and others.
