Dhanush, the producer of Rajinikanth’s highly-awaited Kaala, has released the film’s first song. Titled Semma Weightu, the song is high on energy and is likely to resonate well with the youngsters. It will also remind you of Rajinikanth’s earlier film Kabali and its song Neruppu Da.

The lyrics video of the song doesn’t reveal any new details about the film, but it definitely gives the idea of Rajinikanth’s character in the film who is pitted against the Mumbai mafia.

The song, composed by Santhosh Narayanan, features Hariharasudhan and Santhosh Narayanan’s voices. It also has rap by Pranav Chaganty and beatboxing by Dopeadelicz.

The song has been released in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi with minor changes in lyrics and voices.

In Kaala, Rajinikanth plays a slum lord-turned-gangster. The film also stars Nana Patekar, Pankaj Tripathi, Anjali Patil, Huma Qureshi and Samuthirakani in pivotal roles. According to director Ranjith, Kaala is about the diverse families that live in Mumbai’s Dharavi slum, which is filled with people from different culture and languages.

In a recent interview, director Pa Ranjith mentioned that the titular character in the film, played by Rajinikanth, is inspired from his grandfather. Rajinikanth plays a character called Karikaalan, and people call him Kaala.
