A Aa Audio Release Function


Sometimes you just get lucky! I switched on Sun TV at 3pm today to catch Aanandham and instead, was treated to a half-hour show on A Aa's audio release function. It was quite well-attended with S.J.Suryah, A.R.Rehman, Shankar, S.A.Chandrasekhar, Vijay, Simbhu, Vivek, Vaali, Hariharan and Rajnikanth's daughter Soundarya being among the attendees.

Clips were shown from 3 of the 6 songs. Surprisingly, Thigu Thigu... turned out to be the most impressive with the otherwise regular-looking dance being spiced up with some very cool camerawork and digital effects. Anbe Aaruyire... seemed similar in execution to New's title number with S.J.Suryah dancing with a bunch of group dancers. Varugiraai... saw him trying to be real intense as he sang the song in the middle of some raging fires.

Shankar talked about A Aa being one of the three names he sent in when S.J.Suryah announced the contest for the movie's title after dropping BF due to all the controversy. That was news to me. Vaali briefly described the movie's story and it did seem very interesting. Hope Suryah doesn't spoil it with an overdose of sex. Vivek called IR the musical genius of this century and ARR the musical genius taking us to the next. Vijay and Simbhu were there since Suryah is going to be directing movies with both of them(Puli for Vijay and A/C for Simbhu). Vijay got a few laughs when he talked about his fear of being replaced by Suryah himself at the request of the producer. Simbhu continued the praise of ARR while ARR himself laughed a lot during his brief speech. S.J.Suryah sounded forceful and confident during his speech. His recitation of the opening lines of Aararai Koadi... brought goosebumps even in me.

I couldn't see the film's heroine Nila anywhere. But Soundarya looked ravishing. In fact my wife, who didn't realise who she was, asked if she was the film's heroine.

it seems soundarya did the logo design for chandramukhi and a aa. how come we don't hear about logo designers for any of the other movies. why is it that we hear about it when the logo is designed by superstar's daughter?

Looks like Rajinis daughter is making a name for herself, graphics in Chandramukhi was also done by her.

The audio function of Ah Aah is the best i've seen in recent times. The whole show looked fun and everyone was having a good time. From what i heard vivek said that "For the last century, the one MD who can be called as the MD of the century is IR, no doubt", huge claps for that..."but for the last decade and probably for this entire century, the man who redefined music and will be called as the MD of the century is ARR ..no doubt"..Theatre burst into claps and load shouts:).

SJS knows about the kind of criticism he faced on New and im definetely sure that he wouden't repeat that again. A few months ago when he was the guest in 'Ungal Choice' he said that Ah Aah will not be like New and it's a total family entertainer.

kaps, i heard she actually did some of the digital effects too. and the answer lies in your question itself. because she is the superstar's daughter :-)

ganesh, naanum adha engeyo padichen :)

bladehawk, i agree. did seem like everyone was having fun.
and yeah i know SJS said that but the 'thazhuvudhu nazhuvudhu' song and publicity stills seem to point otherwise :)

I was just browsing various blogs as I was doing a search on the word Aah, and I just wanted to say that I really like what you've done with your blog, even though it wasn't particularly related to what I searched for. I appreciate your postings, and your blog is a good example of how a blog should be done. I've only just recently started a Posters website - feel free to visit it when you get a chance if you wish. Much success, antonio.

I know that the first rule of blogging is that in order to keep readers coming back and interested, one has to post. But when there's nothing to report, what does a blogger do? So, I thought I'd tell you about my weekend no fax payday loans .
