Prakash Jha Adds Oomph Factor in ‘Satyagraha’ with an Item Song


Film maker Prakash Jha who has movies like ‘Rajneeti’ and ‘Gangajal’ to his credit is coming up with his next movie ‘Satyagraha’. In order to add an oomph factor in his movie, he has added an item song in the film.

The item song is a thumri-electronic fusion. Model and actor Natasa Stankovic will be seen sizzling the screen with her groovy moves in this item song. The item song is titled ‘Aiyo ji hamri atariya mein’.

Prakash Jha feels that such songs in a movie not only adds to the sensibilities of the movie but also adds to the story. He also believes that such songs are entertaining and they also draw attention to the film. Lot of storyline can be depicted through these songs, if they are aptly done.

Prakash Jha said in a statement, “Such numbers contribute to certain moments and sensibilities. They (dance numbers) help the story too.”

In his earlier movie ‘Gangajal’ actress Manyata Dutt, who is wife of Sanjay Dutt, performed on the item number ‘Alhad mast jawani’.“Manyata’s song helped in establishing the psyche of debased people. In ‘Satyagraha’, the item song creates the ambience of affluence and the bonhomie of corrupt people”, said Jha.

 Also for ‘Rajneeti’ television actress Barkha Bisht sizzled on ‘Ishq barse hai boondon boondon’.

“They do entertain; and entertainment happens to be the most important part of filmmaking. At the same time, when used cleverly, they can also be meaningful”, said Jha.

Natasa who earlier appeared in advertisements like Johnson’s Baby collection among others, is quite upbeat about this song. She said, “In October 2012, I went (came) to Mumbai, where I started to do shows, TV commercials, billboards. My favourite job was my advertisement for Johnson’s Baby collection…Now, I hope that the song will be a hit, and my game will come to the fore.”

The actors in ‘Satyagraha’ are Amitabh Bachchan, Ajay Devgan, Kareena Kapoor,Arjun Rampal, Manoj Bajpai, Amrita Rao and Vipin Sharma.

The movie will be released on 30th August 2013. The movie has a budget of Rs.30 crores.

‘Satyagraha’ is the story of common people who raise their voices against corruption.  A young industrialist faces a bitter truth in his personal life which opens his eyes to the prevalent corruption everywhere. He vows to change the system. He joins hand with an old idealistic man who guides him for a revolution.
