"Sivaji The Boss" - Music Review

Quick review:

The songs will be a huge hit for sure. "Athiradee" sung by Rahman himself is foot tapping at the first listening itself. Though it has some traces of the drum beats loop used by Michael Jackson, in the song "Dangerous", from the album Dangerous, it _is_ indeed lilting !

Balelakka, sung by the evergreen SPB. If this is not the introduction song for SuperStar, I think I must stop seeing movies. As far as I can remember, SPB has been singing the introduction song for SuperStar with unerring consistency. This _has_ to be the intro song for superstar. The background drum beat loop is interesting. Looks like thavil. Needs more hearing.

However, as seen in Chandramukhi, Superstar did not have any introduction song, but only a thatthuvam (philosophy) song later on. Since shankar is the director of the movie, I think we can guess that the song "Athiradee" would be used as some kind of a title song when super star comes onto the screen (It has words like "Thalapathi" and "Billa" and "Basha") and Balelakka as SuperStar's Philosophy song.

Stay tuned for a detailed review in the forthcoming days.

Update : Yes, I know. A detailed review is in the works. Patience is a virtue folks ;-)

PS: The songs were broad casted in quite a few online radio stations. Go here for a directory of tamil radio stations.
