universally much awaited and much hyped songs of BABA were released
on 31st July. Let's have a close look at the
songs of this album
Usually Rajini's film songs begin with an introductory song by
S.P.B. and this used to be the most expected song by his die hard
fans. But here the album starts with a peaceful theme music blended
with Srinivas'sanskrit chanting. This depicts the superstar's
obsession towards spirtuality. The theme, Rajini wants to deliver
through this song is that "there can be only one paramatma" .
fast number promises to be the introductory song for Rajini in
this film. But it's doubtful whether the metallic voice of Shankar
Mahadevan will suit for Rajini. This number is really peppy and
in bangra style. But it strongly reminds us of some old songs
of Vidyasagar inspired heavily by punjabi folk by Gurdasman. The
song is written by Vairamuthu. In Baasha, the human life was differentiated
into 8 parts and here into 3 parts namely childhood, youth and
aged. A poet like Vairamuthu could avoid meaningless leads like
'Dippu Dippu Kumari'. Shankar Mahadevan pronounces Baba as Bebe!!!
If his intention was to sound stylish,let the fans of superstar
forgive him for that.
Baba kichu kichu
Rehman has introduced a new voice to TFM , of Reena Bharadwaj
.S.P.B. is the co-singer whose magical voice suits Rajini a lot.
A special feature of this song is that, superstar has rendered
his golden voice in the beginning.
new singer seems to have a voice with a cocktail of honey and
wine. Though it's a duet song, it's heavily flavoured with Rajini's
concepts and present political scenario. It is penned by vairamuthu
and it is a commendable job. This song easily sticks to the lips
of the listener and will be a sure hit.
Karthik and Sujatha have lent their voices for this masterpiece
of the album. The song is in the usual style of Rahman with enchanting
tune and haunting beats. It's sure that the fans are going to
be crazy when this song is played in the movie .The songs will
reverberate in the Top Ten shows in Satellite channels and in
the minds of people.
seems Vaali wote the lyrics in 10 minutes time after listening
to the tune of Rahman over phone (from London). Sujatha's voice
is as usual as cool as cucumber and the song diverts into various
raagas and pitches with different beats.
hearing this song for the first time will mistake the voice to
be KJY but it's by Jeyachandran. No one will believe that this
is Rahman's tune because it's totally different and it sounds
like Raja's song.
whole story of the film and Rajini's present mystical status is
well projected in this song by vaali. The song flows like "adhisayam
adhisayam Periyaar thaan aanadhenna Rajaji" , which created ripples
among the DK people who even filed a case stating that Periyaar
is derated by this line. But later as Rajini had promised to change
the line, the case was withdrawn. This created more publicity
to the already much awaited film.
upcoming playback singer Karthik's second song in this album.
Rehman should have had enough confidence in him that he's given
such an emotional song to him and Karthik has used the opportunity
to display his talent. This song flows well with karnatic base
and in this song Rajini asks for POWER from God in order to demolish
the evils and do service to mankind. This song reminds us of the"Kaalaiyum
neeye maalaiyum neeye".
seems to be a conflict in the number of songs in the album. Some
cassettes seem to have the song 'Deivam Intru' sung by Krishnaraj
that resembles the song 'singam ontru purappattathey'. Most of
the album lacks consistency. A lack of involvement is sensed at
all the levels starting from the playback singers to the director
of the movie. Perhaps, ARR's commitment with "Bombay Dreams" spoilt
Rehman's songs take time to catch people's mind but stay there
for long. Hope this will follow the same trend.
this album is in the top of the charts and surely Rajini's magnetism
will secure this place for long.
