The much awaited tracklist from the album of Rajinikanth's Kabali is finally here. Composed by Santhosh Narayanan, the album has just 5 tracks, including the title song 'Neruppu Da', which I suspect will span for not more than 2 minutes.
Since the movie will have just 4 fully fledged songs, Kabali is expected to be a fast paced film. Not to mention, something similar was confirmed by editor Praveen KL in one of his recent interviews.
"Kabali is a race against time kind of film," he had said. This augurs well for the movie as fast paced movies usually do well among movie lovers and fans.
Focusing the spotlight back to the tracklist, Gana Bala has lent his voice for 2 out of 5 songs. This is interesting as the singer has never sung for the superstar.
Pradeep Kumar too, has crooned 3 songs, while Ananthu has sung 2. Unfortunately, legendary singer SP Balasubrahmanyam, who has sung almost all introduction songs for Rajinikanth, does not feature in the list. Complete tracklist is given below:
Written by Kabilan, 'Ulagam Oruvanukka' will have voices of Ananthu, Gana Bala and Santhosh Narayanan. The song will also have a rap portion in Tamil, for which the lyrics has been penned by Vivek.
The title of this track indicates that the song might be a typical Rajinikanth special, which might speak about philosophy and its importance.
'Maya Nadhi' has been sung by Ananthu, Pradeep Kumar and Swetha Mohan. Uma Devi has contributed with the lyrics.
This song, which has an interesting title, has once again been penned by Uma Devi. Gana Bala, Lawrence and Pradeep Kumar have lent their voices for 'Veera Thurandhara'.
'Vaanam Paarthen' has been sung by Pradeep Kumar and has its lyrics written by Kabilan.
And finally, the song that featured in the teaser. 'Neruppu Da', as reported earlier, has been sung by Arunraja Kamraj. Lyrics too, has been penned by the actor-singer, who was seen in movies like Maan Karate and Raja Rani.
