Rajapaattai (Music review), Tamil – Yuvan Shankar Raja
Laddu laddu makes up for the middling tune with its hyper-enthusiastic, raw percussion and orchestration that goes straight back to Ilayaraja’s heydays! The same applies to Podi paiyyan where Yuvan rocks with groovy and funky musical arrangements even as the tune is barely functional. The Raja effect is pronounced even in Villathi villain which could easily pass off as an 80s Kamal Haasan song, but with Yuvan’ish additions. Paniye is the weakest link here – pedestrian and jaded melody. Rajapaattai sees Yuvan explore a new sound and move closer to his illustrious dad’s legacy – if not tune-wise, at least sound-wise.
