Oscar-winning composer AR Rahman, who managed to get a glimpse
of one of the songs from superstar Rajinikanth-starrer Tamil
period-drama Kochadaiyaan, describes it as
"(I) had a sneak preview of Rajini sir's motion capture results
for one of the songs from Kochadaiyaan. (It) looks like
animation on steroids! Epic," posted Rahman on his Twitter page.
Rahman has composed the music for the film, directed by Rajini's
daughter Soundarya Ashwin.
The highlight of the album is the song crooned by Rajinikanth
and written by poet Vairamuthu. However, the audio launch is
expected to happen in the coming months and it will be released in
a foreign nation like Rajini's Endhiran album, which was
launched in Malaysia.
Kochadaiyaan is said to be India's first film with
motion capture technique along the lines of Hollywood films Tin
Tin and Avatar.
Also featuring R Sarath Kumar, Aadi Pinisetty, Shobana, Jackie
Shroff, Deepika Padukone and Nassar, it has been jointly produced
by Eros International and Media One Global Entertainment. The film
is currently in its post-production phase.
