Rajni, Rahman & Shankar trio - Break the rulez!
Aug 21, 2006
Film audience always needs to be kept guessing as to what they are going to see on the screen. Variety is undoubtedly an ingredient that can guarantee at least decent returns if not huge profits for a movie. We have seen in the past that the audience has unfailingly accepted movies that have broken the mould, even if there was no big star cast. The 2004 Kadhal and this year’s Imsai Arasan are very good examples.

So, anyone who has been in movies for a long time knows the importance of not getting typecast or predictable. One needs to be versatile if one has to stick around. Even Superstar Rajnikanth is no exception. We all saw what happened when he tried to rework the tried and tested formula in Baba. He had to then opt for something we had never seen him do before in Chandramukhi, and it is still running in the city. That’s what change is all about. Rajni seems to have grasped this point quite well and if reports are anything to go by, then we can expect a lot of fresh things in Sivaji.

What are the changes? Well do not be surprised. In Sivaji, there will be no typical Rajni introduction song with the trademark philosophies and national integration ideas cropping up in the lyrics. We all love to see those larger than life intro songs, the fans go crazy, remember Devuda…. But Shankar is not the man who will buckle to set trends and stylisms. His style is that he has no trademark style and that’s what makes him a top director.

When the music composer A R Rahman was contacted for his comments, he appeared to be very pleased with the way the songs have shaped up. In addition to the ‘Shankar, Rajini’ special, the audience will have Rahman special also in Sivaji. Five songs have been composed and all of them have come out very well and fresh. Shankar had shown two of the songs to Rahman that have been shot and Rahman in turn is very impressed with the finished product. “Visuals are very beautiful and have a happy tone in them. I have not seen a better looking Rajini till now. He looks very handsome’, says Rahman.

The first song in the movie has been picturised on Rajni and Shreya with Lawrence doing the choreography. Usually it is Tarun master who choreographs all Rajni intro songs. The song was shot at the Binny mills in Chennai. Well, now we all know that we are not going to get the usual Rajni intro. We shall find out how good the new one is only when the movie releases.
