Rahman & Mani,the magic continues - Guru Review

When a legendary team decides to make a movie on one of the biggest visionaries of India, you expect nothing short of a thunderbolt. You keep itching to collect as much information about the movie as possible; you browse through the World Wide Web to get a preview of the music. You keep playing the trailers over and over again; you read all the interviews associated with the movie and keep counting the days left for the release. If you are one such fan, let me warn you, you are just about to be hit by one hell of an album. If you are not such a fan, no worries, you will still be swept by the genius of Rahman. The Mozart transforms himself to his initial golden period, where one doesn’t have to keep listening to the songs repeatedly to get impressed. He is straight at you with vengeance.


Let’s celebrate the return of the Kings, Mani and Rahman.

The layman that I am, my favorite song is Mayya Mayya, a heavy Turkish tune which captures your imagination right away. The moment Toller twists and turns her unique vocal chords you are left mesmerized and Rahman’s beats take care of the rest. Chinmayee and Keerthi play the perfect foil. Can’t wait to see Mallika Sherawat set the screen on fire.

Listen to the nation swinging.

Baazi laga,

Don’t feel embarrassed if you feel that Anu Malik has jumped in to compose a song for Rahman. This song has an 80’s and early 90’s style of music which ironically was taken to cleaners by the wizard himself. But here he re-adapts the music again to give a lively number. Udit is magical. Bhargavee, Madhushree and Swetha are exuberant.

A sure hit among the masses!!

Jaage Hain,

A strong orchestration supported by the melodious voice of Chitra KS makes your heart start pumping steadier. When its reaches a peak, the momentum is reduced for a bit; only for Rahman to come back and take it to a higher level. The new team of Madras Chorale Group is absolutely brilliant. Rahman’s violins keep you ‘hair-raised’ for the entire six minute stretch.

Listen again n again n again, coz it’s a classic.

If you think Rahman is the best music director in the country, what about his split personality, the singer Rahman. The music composer in him always overshadows the singer. There are few instances where his high pitches resemble the legendary Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan. Few people would disagree with me, but I would still continue to think so. The music and chorus is top notch. We all know why Chinmayee is one of the favorite singers of Rahman.

Enjoy the breeze.
