Music composer also added, “It’s a big roller-coaster ride. A musician, who is fresh, has certain sensibilities. Then he becomes evolved, and he has different sensibilities. Then he goes into a Zen mode. In the film, according to the evolution of the character, the music changes. From simplistic to simple to complex to back to simple, so that’s the arc of the music.”
99 Songs is musical romance film directed by Vishwesh Krishnamoorthy and produced by A. R. Rahman. Rahman has produced the film under his own banner YM Movies. The film was released in the operational theatre on 16th April but did not see much business due to COVID-19 pandemic. 99 Songs has 15 original tracks in the album.
