Briefing about the film details, Suresh Kondeti said, “Gopi Sundar’s tunes will stand out as special attraction to the film. Malayalam version ‘Ustad Hotel’ stood as musical hit there. Recently, we have wrapped up re-recording of songs. New lyricist Srivalli, prominent lyricist Srimani and one re writer have penned songs. Sameera Bharadwaj and Saketh Komanduri have sang the song which comes in the lines ‘Ammayi Kannulu…’. “Chandamama Chandamama…’ song was sung by Haricharan and Saketh Komanduri, while ‘Chal Chal Chal…’ song was sung by Mohammad Irfan and Manisha Erabathini. Three songs in the film are situational. So far, Dulquer Salman and Nithya Menon duo have paired up for three time. Audience also praised their duo in ‘Ustad Hotel’ and the on-screen crackling chemistry between them was praised in the reviews. The film has won three national awards such as Best Popular Movie, Best Dialogues and special award for actor Thilakan. The film has won critical acclaims also. It also received good collections and stood as good commercial film. The story of the film is laced with love, sentiment and the differences between rich and poor. Dialogues penned by Sahithi will stand out as special highlight for the film. Earlier he has provided dialogues for the films ‘Journey’, ‘Pizza’ and ‘Dr. Saleem’ which were delivered from our banner. Now, he penned wonderful dialogues to this ‘Jathagaa’ also. Dubbing works are completed.”
