Enthiran (Music review), Tamil – A R Rahman
Enthiran has two show-stopper tunes – the phenomenally lilting Kadhal anukkal, that hits all the catchy, addictive notes; and Arima arima, that showcases musical grandeur in an absolutely awe-inspiring range! Kilimanjaro is Shankar’s splurging-money-in-exotic-locale song and seems more visual than musical. Of the four, ‘robotic’ songs, it’s odd that Rahman treats them with a textbook, 80s robot sound overdosing on vocalizing effects and instrumentation bordering on Ross Geller’s (Friends), especially Chitti Dance Showcase! Khatija does sound ethereal in Pudhiya manidha, spearheaded by SPB’s dependability, while Boom boom and Irumbilae oru are middling. Customary soundtrack that perhaps takes the ‘robot’ too literally.
