Favorite Rajni Song Sequences - 2

Adhiradikkaaran... - Sivaji

Shankar has always been known for mounting elaborate, imaginative song sequences but in the last couple of films, I was a little disappointed with the song sequences. The bright costumes, the exotic locales, the catchy songs... they were all there but something that could have made the sequences stand out was missing. But he reminded us just how good he is with this spectacular number that was one of the highlights of the movie. Like in his most successful song sequences, Shankar told a story rather than just picturizing a song. The location was splashy and colorful, the costumes were rich and glamorous and the choreography by Lawrence was dazzling as Rajni rescued Shriya from the masked villains. The last song in the film, the song rouses us as Rajni gives a gun a life of its own, stops a bullet in its tracks and mows the bad guys down with style. Chummaa Adhirudhilla!

You have truly raised the bar by placing Adhiradi song at the number 2 slot. Can't wait for the number 1 song :) Has to be a song from either Baashaa or Thalapathi!!
