Mumbai: Circa early 90’s one man Prabhu Deva Sundaram broke into the Indian movie scene, aided by a young unconventionally poised musician AR Rahman, to give every Indian some major dancing goals.
Such has been his influence on generic Indian pop-cult that he still happens to be the first name that crops into the average Indian’s mind when one utters the word ‘Dance’.
Prabhu Deva, who began concentrating on direction predominantly, in recent times, has returned to his primary passion, ie acting.
Prabhu has been the lead in Remo D’Souza’s ‘ABCD’ franchise, were he takes a backseat when it comes to dancing, letting the younger crop take a lead, but he’s back big-time, much to the exhilaration of his fans, with A.L. Vijay’s tri-lingual ‘Tutak Tutak Tutiya,’ christened ‘Devi’ in Tamil, and ‘Abhinetri,’ in Telugu.
The teasers had taken the internet by storm with scintillating glimpses of the dancer everyone’s loved to fixate upon in the 90’s.
The first song, ‘Rail Gadi,’ released early on Thursday, and beside a terrifically in-form Prabhu Deva, Sonu Sood and the sizzling hot Esha Gupta also manage to hold their own in front of his towering screen presence.
Sonu, who had danced in Farah Khan’s Shah Rukh Khan starrer ‘Happy New Year,’ can be seen belting out some mean moves himself.
The song is also pleasantly reminiscent of Prabhu’s cult hit ‘Chiku Buku Raile,’ composed by A.R. Rahman.
The similarities, seem like a sincere tribute on the part of the makers to one of the greatest dancers the country has seen.
The peppy song has been composed by Gurinder Seagal.
A horror-comedy, ‘Tutak Tutak Tutiya’ is scheduled to release on October 7, 2016.
