The inspiration for the theme of the title sequence for "Solo" (2017) comes from the film itself, where 4 characters from different walks of life were played by one actor, Dulquer Salmaan. The 4 elements were an integral part of the narrative of the film and emotionally influenced the characters. The characters were also named according to the 4 prevalent avatars of the Hindu deity, Lord Shiva.

Using these themes, the title sequence for "Solo" (2017) is a symbolic look at one of the principal deities of Hinduism, Lord Shiva in 4 of his most distinct avatars: Bhoomi (Earth), Agni (Fire), Vaayu (Wind) & Jalam (Water).
