An Indian Musical: Music School To Release on 12th May
In a press show for the movie ‘Music School,’ the actors and directors sat with the press and briefed them about the upcoming movie. The movie is set to hit the theatres on 12th May and should not be missed as it looks like a fun and exciting one.
The movie has been written, directed, and produced by Papa Rao Biyyala and stars actors Sharman Joshi and Shriya Saran in the lead.
An Isaignani Ilaiyaraaja musical, the movie has a total of 11 songs and 1 musical dialogue. Out of these, three songs in the movie have been taken from the Original Soundtrack of the 1965 classic ‘The Sound of Music,’ for which the movie has copyrights. The original ‘Do Re Me Fa’ also features in the movie, making it all the more special.
‘Music School’ is probably the first of its kind movie in India that has attempted the ‘musical’ approach, something that has been seen very commonly in the West.
The multilingual film is a fun family entertainer that people of all ages can watch. The director Papa Rao Biyyala, on the occasion of the press show, said- “The movie discusses the general problem of middle-class life where we put a lot of pressure on children to become engineers or doctors, and there is no time for creative things like art and music. But, we have taken this serious issue and discussed it in fun- story way. ”
The movie revolves around how the two lead actors (Sharman and Shriya) want to stage ‘The Sound of Music’ but are unable to gather students. The story follows their journey and how they use music and art to bring out the creative side of the students.
The director also added, “It is a middle-class family drama, and I would urge all of you to go along with your family to enjoy the movie.”
In order to stay authentic, the movie has also used the award-winning choreographer Adam Murray along with Chinni Prakash and Raju Sundaram. With a global team, the movie has been made with a lot of effort, thought, and seriousness.
Actress Shriya also reminisced about her time in Delhi and how coming back to Delhi brought back memories of her school and college days. “I studied from DPS Mathura Road and then went to Lady Shri Ram College for Women (LSR) for college, so coming to Delhi always brings back many memories for me.
Growing up, I was lucky that my parents never pressured me and were supportive in every way. They wanted me to become a dancer, and today, I am an actress, and I think their support was critical.”
The movie explores a topic we very much need in today’s world and situation. The actress adds, “It is a beautifully done film, and you will laugh, dance and enjoy and not realize when the 12 songs are over, as that is the beauty of Sir Ilaiyaraaja’s music.”
The movie Music School will have a running time of two hours and make sure you take out the time to catch it in the theatres from 12th May.
