2.0 (Music review), Tamil – A.R.Rahman

There’s more sound-led glitz in Endhira logathu sundariye than a cohesive tune. Sid and Shashaa’s voices are digitally mauled, perhaps owing to the ‘robot’ theme, a musical cue that plagued Endhiran‘s soundtrack too. Madhan Karky’s enjoyably clever lyrics doff the hat to ‘computerized Rajini’ (KaNini Rajini nee!) and a 3-word phrase that fits his father’s famously controversial 3-word phrase’s meter – ‘Indiran thottathu mundhiriye’ from Raja Paarvai’s Andhi mazhai pozhigiradhu. Raajali, Rahman’s 2nd song featuring the bird (after Achcham Yenbadhu Madamaiyada’s Rasaali) works well as an Arima arima follow-up, with a similar musical grandeur. A customary soundtrack, quality-wise and number-wise.
