The highly anticipated ‘Kaali Maa’ sequence in the Prabhas and Prithviraj-starrer film ‘Salaar: Part 1- Ceasefire’ has become a major talking point within the industry and on social media. The audience’s enthusiastic reactions, particularly to the spine-tingling build-up to the action, have contributed to the overall excitement surrounding the film.
With the recent release of the complete music jukebox by ‘Homebale Films,’ viewers are praising the background score and songs composed by Ravi Basrur. The voice behind the track ‘Kaali Maa,’ sung by South African singer Shashika Mooruth, has garnered significant interest among netizens. Shashika, thrilled by the film’s phenomenal worldwide success, expresses her elation at the positive response to the recently released Hindi songs from the album.
The Hindi track ‘Kaali Maa,’ penned by lyricist Riya Mukherjee, showcases Ravi Basrur’s talent in finding voices that perfectly match the theme and background, leading to gripping sequences in the film. The song has not only resonated well with the masses but also immerses the audience in the heart of the narrative, becoming an integral part of the film.
In a statement about the song, Shashika Mooruth shares, “I feel honored and grateful at the same time to Ravi Basrur for considering me to sing this beautiful and emotional song. He is truly a remarkable composer and a humble human being. Working with him has been a creatively enriching experience. The lyrics in Hindi and Marwari express the tribal women’s emotional appeal to Kaali Maa, so I loved the challenge of doing different things with my voice to bring the emotion required for the scene.”
