Blockbuster hit maker S.S. Rajamouli is getting into Tamil cinema with this bilingual featuring upcoming stars Samantha and Nani. Both of them are taking their baby steps in Tamil cinema while Kannada superstar Sudeep will be making his first Tamil appearance. The audio was released recently. Star Telugu composer Keeravani aka Maragathamani is making a comeback to Tamil cinema through this. Let’s see if he has lived up to his standards.
Starts off with Hindi lyrics as is expected from most of the actual Telugu songs. The theme of the movie (a housefly (ee) taking revenge on the villain) has been translated into this song. The song is fast paced and can be expected to be accompanied by some graphically enhanced visuals of the ‘ee’ going about its business. The treatment of the song is pretty vociferous given the passionate lyrics about revenge, the ‘kollanum’ segment in particular. It really picks up steam with the ‘Eedaa Eedaa’ refrain. Might visit the charts.
Eedaa Eedaa (Remix)…
Ranjith, Deepu, Rahul Sipligunj, Sravana Bhargavi, Chaitra
There is a remix version of the same song which is pretty chaotic and follows the general remix pattern. A shrill synthesized voice has been overused in this remix. On the whole, the remix is nowhere near the original.
The guitar instrumentals are the standout aspect of this romantic song. Vijay Prakash in low pitched mode sounds cheerful nevertheless. The uncanny resemblance to composer Bharadwaj’s voice is unmistakable. It is a different experience on the whole, given the unhurried pace and the tasteful instrumental arrangements.
Starts off in low pitched mode with base instrumentals before moving into a very spirited ‘Lava Lava’ refrain with rock guitar accompaniments.It’s admirable that veteran composer Maragathamani aka Keeravani is so trendy. An entertaining offbeat number that could find many takers.
This song is a nice pleasant melody with minimum fuss. Karthik brings his trademark charm to this song which sounds like a lullaby. The mouth organ instrumentals add a nice finishing touch to this sure-shot melody. Though the heard before feel dominates, the song sounds good.
Verdict: A nice compilation of numbers by Maragathamani, as he makes a comeback to Tamil cinema through this bilingual. If the film delivers what is expected, then some of the songs will catch on in a big way, particularly the title song.
