Award-winning actor Dhanush and Samyuktha Menon are teaming up for the much awaited college drama, Sir a.k.a Vaathi, a Telugu-Tamil bilingual, written and directed by Venky Atluri. S Naga Vamsi and Sai Soujanya are bankrolling the film under Sithara Entertainments and Fortune Four Cinemas while Srikara Studios presents it. GV Prakash scores the music for the drama which is nearing completion. Mastaaru Mastaaru, the first single from Sir/Vaathi, was unveiled today, much to the delight of Dhanush’s fans.
Sung by Shweta Mohan and lyricised by Ramajogaiah Sastry, Mastaru Mastaru is a catchy montage song amidst a college backdrop, where the female protagonist expresses her liking for the character played by Dhanush, a lecturer (named Bala Gangadhar Tilak). Shweta’s mellifluous voice captures the various layers in the song with the lyrics beautifully, exploring the mind of a woman smitten by the idealism of the man she falls for. Sekhar master has choreographed the number.
Several glimpses of the romance between Dhanush and Samyuktha in a traditional avatar, their on-screen chemistry in the lyrical video, leaves us craving for more. The opening lines ‘Seetakaalam manasu..Nee manasuna chotadiginde..
Sitakumalle neetho adugese maatadiginde..’ is enough proof of Ramajogaiah Sastry’s smart yet intimate word play and his effort to understand the soul beneath the number.A brief video of the song sung by Dhanush was also shared by GV Prakash Kumar earlier this week. Interestingly, Dhanush himself has written the lyrics for the Tamil version.
