Sakka Podu Podu Raja (Music review), Tamil – STR

After a grand, clunky intro, Kalakku machan launches into a Bhagyaraj-style insipid composition. Siru siru has an interesting germ of a semi-classical tune, but Simbu messes it up royally with haphazard backgrounds. The family song, Vaa munima, sung by dad, mom and son is the worst of the lot, going batshit crazy with digital processing. Kadhal devathai, despite the excessive digital processing fares slightly better, though going into a nutty acid-trip starting 03:40. Unakaaga, sung by Leon James and Andrea is the soundtrack’s best, with Simbu trying a funky mix and largely succeeding. STR’s music is better than his acting.
