Achtung Chandramukhi & Chaiyya Chaiyya Song
Did you know?
Chandramukhi is the first tamil film that is now being dubbed into German and Turkish languages and will be released in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Turkey countries in June. The overseas distributor of Rajnikanth's mega movie has managed to pull strings and sold the dubbing rights of the movie to the Cologne based 'Rapid Eye' company.
Just imagine the global audience, a mixture of white folks and persians who do not understand English or Hindi watching thalaivar in this stunning ghost story.
Is laklakala going to be translated into German too? Articles quote that they are surely going to say- "Achtung...." (The war cry of the Nazis which means, Look out! Take care) Thalaivar is here!
Of course, intense googling will tell you that Mani Rathnam's Thiruda Thiruda has got its german version too and Chandramukhi is not the first tamil film to be dubbed in German, but when it comes to Super Star, its always, the first.
Along similar content, Dilse's Chaiya Chaiya song is the title song and ending music when the credits are up in Denzel Washinton's recent film "InsideMan."
Are Indian cinema and music adding spice to western movies and catering to a global audience?
