It must have been in his mind..while he was composing songs for VTV. A big burden.
Harris Jayaraj had set a trend. 'Hit songs' always for Gautham. AR.Rahman inherited the burden thanks to the breakup of Harris and Gautham.
After listening to 'VTV' songs, I have to say that AR Rahman has delivered.
The album has peppy numbers, almost all of them are bound to be hits.
I am not very impressed with the Naresh Iyer song, the song by Karthik and also the duet by Shreya Ghosal and AR Rahman. Maybe it's just me. Let's see.
My favorite is 'Aaromale', which I feel is Rahman's answer to southern fans who wanted a 'Rehna Tu'. Very daring attempt to have a full length Malayalam song in a Tamil movie.
Next comes the Benny Dayal song closely followed by 'Hosana' and then the song by Devan/Chinmayi.
For now, it's 'Aaromale'..beautifully sung by Alphonse, which is haunting me.
I will write again about 'Aaromale' !
