Oscar-winning composer AR Rahman presents the expected musical film, Atkan Chatkan. Among the mains, is the fact that Amitabh Bachchan has sung a song in the soundtrack of the film. The film tells the story of a 12-year-old chai delivery boy and his fantasy.
“‘Atkan Chatkan’ is a story that is enriched with heart and hope. We are finally sharing it with the world on a global platform.” Rahman said.
The lead is a 12-year-old chai delivery boy named Guddu, whose passion is to understand, listen, and create new sounds. He finds rhythm in everything. Rising beyond his everyday daily life, he forms a band with three other street children.
Playing Guddu is child artist Lydian Nadhaswaram. The film will also include Sachin Chaudhary, Yash Rane, and Tamanna Dipak.
The music of the film is scored by the celebrated lyricist Shivamani. “The music in the film plays an integral part, but it’s the storyline that will give the audience a sense of hope. The friendship between the four kids and their passion for fulfilling their dream is the rhythm that the world would want to dance to while watching the film. Hope and burning passion are the key takeaways,” said Shivamani.
Amitabh Bachchan, Sonu Nigam, Hariharan, Runa Sivamani, and Uthara Unnikrishnan have composed the songs. The film is written and directed by filmmaker Saumyy Shivhare, produced by Vishakha Singh, and is slated to release on Zee5 on September 5.
