At the time of Rangasthalam release, if there is anything that has drawn flak in the movie, many were upset with the portrayal of dusky seductress Pooja Hegde as “Jigelu Rani”. But a closer observation of her work is now making everyone change their opinion.
Actually, that realistic touch inside this song should be highly appreciated. Because one wonders what made Pooja Hegde perform exactly like that of an 80s recoding dancer from Godavari districts. All these days this city born and bred hottie is seen only in ultra-glamorous stylish avatars, by this sudden switch to village belle role of the past is seriously amazing. They say that Jani master’s choreography and Sukumar’s wholesome idea of coming up with such lusty village song helped Pooja deliver the Jigelu Rani acts.
And if someone wants to see how much the song is liked by audiences, the video song of the film that was released other day is an example. After clocking 2 million views in half a day (12 hours), the song ended up with close to 2.8+ million views in 24 hours. And that showcases
Composed by Devi Sri Prasad, the song is also a smashing hit in terms of the audio, and visually it became a treat of glamour and also Ram Charan’s terrific dance moves in that massy Chitti Babu avatar.
