Mohanlal, Prithviraj Sukumaran grace music launch of The Goat Life


The Goat Life took over Kochi this weekend for its magnificent music launch, featuring live performances from music maestro A.R. Rahman.

The event witnessed the presence of the cast—Prithviraj Sukumaran, Amala Paul, Jimmy Jean-Louis, K.R. Gokul, Talib al-Balushi, and Rik Aby—and the biggest stars from the Malayalam film industry.

The evergreen superstar Mohanlal graced the event while taking the stage to share his thoughts about the upcoming film The Goat Life and his experience with Blessy and Prithviraj. The presence of talented actors such as Roshan Mathew and Tovino Thomas, among others, made the music launch a star-studded affair.

The event, which had a footfall of over 6,000 people, began with a special fan moment as the striking fan-made posters for the movie were released on stage. The G.O.A.T., A.R. Rahman, then took to the stage to talk about his journey on the film and opened with his surreal performance of the title soundtrack.

Launching the hope anthem of the year, composer and singer A.R. Rahman performed ‘The Hope Song’ live at the event, which resonates with the human spirit and is a soul-stirring anthem that illuminates the path forward. The uplifting melody of ‘Hope’ is a beacon of light in the darkest of times.

The event also featured the performances of multiple other songs from the album, namely Periyone Song, Bethavin Song, Magical Song, and Desert Song. Artists such as Jithin, Sana Mousa, Chinmayi Sripaada, Vijay Yesudhas, Murtaza, Raja Hassan, and Faiz performed on the magical evening.

Speaking about his journey on the film, A.R. Rahman said, “It’s such an honor to work with such a passionate man as Blessy, who believes in cinema, goodwill, stories, and humanity. Working with him taught me so much because he is a very patient person. I want to thank you for coming and supporting us. This movie is the story of all of us; we are all struggling in some way. For some people, the struggle is internal; in the movie, the struggle of the hero is being trapped in a desert, but still, a lot of people are relating to this. Returning to the Malayalam film industry, I personally feel like I’ve come back home. Coming back in this way for such a special movie with such great people to support it is such an honor, and it has been a very interesting journey.”

Talking about the music of the film, Prithviraj Sukumaran shared, “I’ve had the privilege of working in two films that A.R. Rahman sir has composed for. Before this, both the films had amazing music, but I have done over 120 films, and I don’t remember another time when I heard the score of a film after having done it entirely and then wished that I had the score with me when I was acting. I wish I could hear the music before each take now, but that is the process of cinema; you don’t get to do that. I would like to thank you for what you have done for the film. You are as big a character as Najeeb is in The Goat Life. It’s an amazing piece of work.”

The movie is based on the novel ‘Aadujeevitham’, one of the most popular best sellers ever from the Malayalam literary world, which has been translated into 12 different languages, including those that are foreign.

Penned by noted writer Benyamin, it follows the true story of the life of a young man, Najeeb, who, in the early 1990s, migrates from the lush green shores of Kerala in search of fortune in a land abroad.

Produced by Visual Romance, The Goat Life also features Hollywood actor Jimmy Jean-Louis, Indian actors like Amala Paul and K.R. Gokul, along with renowned Arab actors such as Talib al-Balushi and Rik Aby in pivotal roles.

The upcoming film’s music direction and sound design are helmed by Academy Award winners A.R. Rahman and Resul Pookutty, respectively. The stunning visuals of the film have been shot by Sunil KS, and they have been edited by A. Sreekar Prasad.

Being shot in multiple countries around the world, the film is the biggest-ever venture in the Malayalam film industry, setting new benchmarks in production standards, storytelling, and acting prowess. With exemplary performances and a soul-stirring background score, the film makes for a larger-than-life theatrical experience.
