Music is a key aspect of any film. And in Prabhudeva’s upcoming silent thriller Mercury, music composer Santosh Narayanan has justified every bit of it.
In this movie Mercury, music is the language personifying the characters and the screenplay.
Says composer Santosh Narayanan said,
‘’Music is the most essential part of any film, but when it comes to Mercury it actually became a medium of communication. Mercury being a silent film needed a strong background score that could give you chills down the spine.”
“Since there are no dialogues in the film I had to be careful about every minute detail like tonality, atmosphere and the story. I wanted to justify the story with my music. It was a great learning experience as Karthik and I used to have detailed conversations about it. A movie like Mercury is a once in a generation opportunity for me. It doesn’t come easily to a music director and I am privileged to have got this opportunity.”
Directed by Karthik Subbaraj, Mercury stars Prabhudheva in the lead. It also stars Sananth Reddy, Deepak Parmesh, Shashank Puroshotham, Anish Padmanabhan, Indhuja Ravishandran, Gajaraj SP and Ramya Nambeesan.
