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.

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 :)
