Chandramukhi Audio

Fans of Rajnikanth finally have something to listen to until Chandramukhi gets released! The audio was released at a grand function on Saturday, March 5. Rajni's speech had his usual mini-story and had the audience cheering. But the pick of the speeches was Vaalee's with its wonderful wordplays. Lots of sites have pics of the event and Indiaglitz has videos too.

Here are my feelings on the songs after a few listens...

Devuda Devuda - Rajni's usual introduction song, this time spreading the message 'Job is God'.Catchy tune and lyrics has you humming the first few lines pretty soon! And a pleasure hearing SPB sing for Rajni again.

Kokku Para Para - Has the catchiest start and interludes among all the songs but the stanzas could use a little speeding up to match the tempo of the start. Lyrics point to the song coming during the scene where Rajni, Prabhu, Jyothika and Nayantara are flying kites, which according to P.Vasu is a key scene in the movie.

Raa Raa - Melodious number which seems to be the all-important climactic song. Shobana in Manichitrathaazhu was a Malayali with the spirit taking her over being that of a Tamilwoman. The lyrics here, with a mix of Tamil and Telugu, would seem to indicate the combination here is a Tamil woman possessed by a Telugu spirit!

Konja Neram - Asha Bhonsle's soothing voice is the icing on the cake for this melodious number.Following the tradition of Kuluvaalile in Muthu, this one too inserts some personal stuff about Rajni inspite of being a romantic number.

Athinthom - Starts off slow and in quite an 'un-Rajni-like' way. But soon reveals itselfto be one of the typical 'philosophical' numbers from Rajni.

Annanoda Paattu - Generic, uninspiring number and definitely my least favorite in the album.

Overall, Vidyasagar has done what can called a competent job. Not as good as his Run or Gilli but definitely an improvement over Ji. But the album was definitely a good change from recent ones that have been overloaded with duppanguthu-style songs (Thiruppaachi was the worst culprit).

Plainsay, yes Jyothika definitely has her job cut out for her if CM is indeed Manichitrathazhu's remake. I saw the original while back but still remember being amazed by Shobana's movements and expression in the climax dance. Gotta wait and how Jyothika does...

I really liked the music, felt it was refreshing especially from vidyasagar who resorts to the similar style in his movies. Konjam neram is my fav, Asha Bhonsle simply blows you away, the song just caught me the first time i heard it and have been listening since then. The other songs are also commendable, especially the kokku parra song. On the whole, a good album considering a Rajini film.

I didn't like it at first, but on repeat hearings this is a pretty decent Rajani-suited soundtrack. just hope they are well pictured in the film. I think in horror of the dismal depictions of the BABA soundtrack...

The album's a definite improvement over Baba and has more variety than Padaiyappa. And with a much better-looking Rajni and the fact that he seems to be heeding the lessons learned from Baba, I think we can look forward to some great song sequences.

Yeah rekhs, Konjam Neram is currently my favorite too though I think Asha Bhonsle sounds great. I am also liking Annanoda Paattu a lot more than I did on the first few listens.
