The second single from Rajinikanth's Petta was released on Friday. 'Ullaallaa' is a fun, light-hearted song sung by Nakash Aziz and Inno Genga. The visuals show director Karthik Subbaraj explaining the scene to the artistes and the dancers rehearsing. It also shows stills of Rajinikanth dancing.
Earlier in the day, a sneak peak of the song was released. It had music composer Anirudh talking about the song and how it has been conceptualised. Anirudh had said that the song is based on a funny scene from Rajinikanthâs 1981 comedy Thillu Mullu in which his character Indiran lies to his boss to go watch a football match. If youâve got a better memory, you might remember the 'Baila' tune that was played during this scene.
Hoping to recreate this mood in Rajinikanthâs upcoming Petta, music director Anirudh shared in a sneak-peek clip that the next song from the film was inspired by this particular scene from the starâs cult classic. In the one-minute video, Anirudh was heard saying, âThis is Thalaivar Baila - âUllaallaaâ. We mustâve enjoyed his naughtiness in the Thillu Mullu football stadium scene. So we thought it would be fun to have such a number in Petta. Hope you guys enjoy 'Ullaallaa'.â
The video showed Anirudh dancing along with two other artistes to a catchy tune while Rajinikanthâs scene from the old film was juxtaposed. The video ended with Thenga Sreenivasanâs dialogue from Thillu Mullu in which he says before the scene actually begins - âIf you make him suffer, Iâll come all the way to Thiruttani to scold you.â
The filmâs first single, âMarana Massâ, was released earlier this week. Just hours before the songâs release, the makers had put out a sneak-peek of its making, creating a buzz for the song.
