Yogaraj Bhat thinks the album of Vaastu Prakara will be another milestone for music director V Harikrishna. “The lyrics of the songs are written with a lot of passion, and this will be an out-of-the-box venture. We have various strategies in mind on how to go about the audio release and the teaser. There was a vibe in the studio while we made the songs. As a listener, even I am waiting for the release of the album,” he says.
With 90 per cent of work done for Vaastu Prakara, Bhatru says even the background score in the film will linger in the ears of the listeners. “We have shot scenes in Switzerland and other posh locations. We had to work twice as hard on the background music so that it matches the visuals,” he says.
The cast of the film had high standards to meet, says the director. “I have Anant Nag, T N Seetharam, Jaggesh, Sudharani, Rakshit Shetty, Parul Yadav and newbie called Aishani Shetty, among others. Each character comes with many layers and a different narration. There was nervousness while shooting, but it was soon replaced by excitement which came after watching the perfect shots. There was room for every actor to emote and improvise. If I am happy with the outcome as a filmmaker, I am sure the audience will feel the same way. Making Vaastu Prakara thrilled me and I hope it thrills the viewers too,” he says.
Bhat usually takes his own time to finish a project and it works better that way, he admits. “There are directors who work on two films at the same time. I can’t do that. Dedicating a couple of years to a film gives it some exclusivity, and there is time for updates and repairs,” the director explains.
Audio teaser in gibberish
As the audio launch for Vaastu Prakara is set to be held on Friday, Bhat has already created a buzz with the audio teaser of the film, which is in gibberish (a language that allows one to speak with no meaning).
The teaser, which has a random mix of Kannada, English and African words, was released on Sunday has gone viral since. According to the director, the teaser comes with a lot meaning.
“This audio teaser was a spontaneous thought and was done in an hour. The editing took a day, and we released it on Sunday,” says Bhatru.
The teaser sees Aishani Shetty, Siddi Prashanth and Arasu talking about each song, and also speaks about the highs and lows of Bhat and V Harikrishna.
