Talking about the song, lyricist Krishnakanth says, “I never imagined that I would get an opportunity to pen a song in Rajinikanth garu’s movie this early in my career. It’s like a dream. Before this film, I had written songs for Suriya‘s Gang and Nani‘s Jersey for Anirudh’s composition. He made it a point to give me the opportunity to write a song in Darbar. I am delighted to have got this opportunity, given that I have grown up watching Rajinikanth garu’s movies. The song, ‘Dumm Dumm’, comes against the backdrop of a wedding. It’s somewhat philosophical, talking about how we are before and after marriage. The Tamil version of this song is penned by Vivek garu. Nakash Aziz has rendered the song, and his voice is apt for the hero’s energy. I thank the makers for the opportunity. Director AR Murugadoss garu is one of my favourite directors. I love his Ghajini, Kaththi, and Thuppaki.
The film also features Suniel Shetty, Prateik Babbar, Dilip Tahil, Nivetha Thomas, Yogi Babu, Thambi Ramaiah, Sriman, Jatin Sarna, and Nawab Shah in crucial roles. Santhosh Sivan is handling cinematography with Sreekar Prasad on the edit and T Santhanam helming art. Peter Hein and Ram-Laxman Chella have choreographed the action sequences.
The trailer of the film recently dropped and has garnered over 3.8 million views. The action flick will hit screens on Pongal 2020 in Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, and Hindi.
