It is really a big disappointment to all AR Rahman fans.. Yes, we are talking about his latest Tamil album after two long years, Vinnaithandi Varuvaaya! Indeed, he had kept everyone awaiting this musical album for the past one month ever since the audio was launched in London. But, the musician has disappointed us and the songs in the album are not up to his 'level'!.
The music wizard seems to be very adhered to Hollywood and western music. Apart from 'Omana Penne" and 'Hosanna", none of the songs seems to be having 'Rahman standard', set by the legend earlier . The lyrics also not catchy. Most part of the lyrics are not clear and almost everywhere the beat is dominating.
He has tuned all the songs somewhat like a background score for Hollywood. Lots of fill-ins and instrumentals does diminish the lyrics. He hasn"t come up with commendable tunes at least the halfway of mediocre Hindi compositions like 'Blue".Maybe, the brand 'A.R. Rahman" may help the producer to cash CDs, but surely this was not we expected from our 'Mozart of Madras!'
