Streaming platform ZEE5 recently released the trailer of their upcoming original film Atkan Chatkan. Adding another note to the celebration, veteran actor Amitabh Bachchan took to social media to release the very first track of the film – ‘Daata Shakti De’.
The story of ‘Atkan Chatkan’ revolves around a 12-year-old chai delivery boy named Guddu, whose passion is to observe, listen and create new sounds. He finds rhythm in almost everything. Through his daily mundane lifecycle, the story gets its rhythm when he forms a band with other 3 street children that work near his tea stall.
The song starts with Guddu hopelessly walking on the streets and him across the city temple about to start its morning aarti. The soulful song starts with a verse from Hanuman Chalisa sung by Amitabh Bachchan. As the aarti proceeds further, the song gives Guddu a sense of hope. The tanpura and sarod add magic in the background, while Mr. Bachchan’s voice gives a soulful touch to the song. The story later progresses with them taking part in the biggest music competition in the city. The question is, will they be able to fulfill their ultimate dream by performing on the biggest stage? Or, will the street remain as their only chance of hope?
Atkan Chatkan will star Lydian Nadhaswaram who is stated as the world’s best child pianist & A. R. Rahman’s protege and will be seen in the lead as Guddu. The film will star Amitriyaan as Guddu’s father, Sachin Chaudhary as Chuttan, Yash Rane as Madhav, Tamanna Dipak as Meethi and Aayesha Vindhara as Lata, Guddu’s sister in pivotal roles
