‘Utthaan’, Music Review
Over-ambitious corporate connoisseurs, ruthless glamour “n” glitz professionals, manipulative media persons and corrupt political icons – all of them have something in common that they want to have meteoric rise in their career at any cost. ‘Utthan’ is the story of such rising ambitious people who want to be successful at any cost. The film comes with a tagline “Upliftment of common man” with a strong socially relevant message. Kumar Sanu, the playback singing prodigy of 90′s, ventures into film production with ‘Utthaan’. This thought-provoking film is directed by Ujjwal Chatterjee, who made strong international presence with critically acclaimed ‘Escape from Taliban’. Priyanshu Chatterjee and Neha Dhupai, the successful pair of ‘Julie’, plays lead roles. Priyanshu Chatterjee plays Prashanat Bharati, a suave socialite who has ideology to expose manipulative and greedy politicians and media persons with his power and might. The actor played similar role in his only successful film ‘Julie’ opposite Neha Dhupia. ‘Utthaan’ will have Neha Dhupia playing Kiran Talreja, an ambitious model who has the mindset of uprooting evils from society, and teams up with Priyanshu. Bollywood ace chorographer Saroj Khan along with producer Kumar Sanu will be making special appearances as beauty contest judges. The supporting cast includes Avtar Gill, Anjan Srivastav, Preeti Puri, Akhilendra Mishra, Rana Jung Bahadur and Vivek Shaque. Kumar Sanu has composed the music that comprises six original soundtracks. Sudhakar Sharma has penned the lyrics. The original soundtracks of ‘Utthaan’ can be heard on Venus cassettes and CD’s.
