The trailer also whets the musical appetite by giving a sneak peek into, what appears to be, the title track of the film “Donkey Raja”. The songs are composed by Shuja Haider, Shani Arshad, Asrar & Majid Raza. The background score is composed by Shani Arshad and recorded with live orchestra at the Budapest Film orchestra, a first for any Pakistani film.
The maker, Aziz Jindani, shares his views and states,
“The Donkey King is an attempt to leap frog Pakistani films in general and animated films in particular. The film indeed speaks to the children but continuously winks at the adults. We have been deliberate to not get straitjacketed by the stereotype of ‘what an animated film is expected to be’. In just under 105mins of runtime The Donkey King packs in a kaleidoscopic cinematic experience. It will make you laugh, will leave you moist eyes at places, will get you at the edge of your seat with suspense & thrill and above all deliver a meaningful message that will inspire children & children at heart to dream big and discover their full potential.”
