Raghu Dixit turns music producer for upcoming movie Orchestra. It is a musical about the orchestra culture in Mysuru and the dream of a boy who wants to sing in an orchestra. He has experimented with the music and turned the leading Actor Dhananjaya into a lyricist.
“Dhananjaya has written incredible lyrics. Usually, lyricists write one or two songs in a film, but on his first assignment, Dhananjaya has written lyrics for nine songs. He took his time, but he has nailed it.”
Director Sunil Mysooru first approached Raghu to act in his film, but Raghu chose to do the music instead. And compose he did — all 11 original tracks.
Raghu further stated:
“Sunil had a brilliant story. He had shot a 20-minute edit of the entire story when he approached me. As a musician, I was really moved after watching it and instantly wanted to be a part of the film. Eventually, the music we made is enough for three films. We have 11 original songs and it is the best music that I have done in Kannada so far.”
Orchestra is about a young boy working in a tea shop aspiring to sing just one song on stage with a local roadside orchestra during Dasara Festival in Mysore.
