Lingaa - ARR’s international touch misses, but commercial is evident

Rajnikanth and the word is more than enough to draw the crowds into the theatres and if there is someone beyond criticisms (pardon the film and music critics), it could be none other than Rajnikanth. It doesn’t mean it is just his screen presence, but his impactful performance with much decorousness. The album of Lingaa comprises of 5 tracks and this time AR Rahman gets back to the commercial zone after a long hiatus with KS Ravikumar and Rajnikanth. This trio have already delivered some of the fascinating albums like Muthu and Padaiyappa.

 1. Oh Nanba 

Vocals: SP Balasubramaniam, Aaryan Dinesh Kanaga
Lyrics: Vairamuthu

The title song of Rajnikanth films are always the most expected tracks as they look up for some inspiring messages from their matinee-idol. In fact, the songs with SP Balasubramaniam in the title song never fail to create the most scintillating effect and Vairamuthu has picked some of the philosophical quotes from various references including that off Rajnikanth’s ideologies as well.

 2. En Mannavva 

Vocals: Srinivas, Aditi Paul 
Lyrics: Vairamuthu

If you are keenly listening to the track, you can sense that there is some similarity with the beats in accordance to ARR’s yesteryear composition ‘Swaasame’ from Thenali. But the crooning style by Srinivas and Aditi Paul are mellisonant. The classical touch during the interludes is the cherry-picks.

 3. Indiane Vaa 

Vocals: A.R. Rahman 
Lyrics: Vairamuthu

 A motivating song that is composed with an attempt of setting new anthem for the younger generation and AR Rahman has crooned this number. This was supposed to be rendered by Haricharan, which could have been more off a better version than ARR singing.

 4. Mona Gasolina 

Vocals: Mano, Neeti Mohan, Tanvi Shah
Lyrics: Karky

Fun and rock seems to be the motto of all those who are engaged in this song. There are certain things that are really worthy of appreciations in this track. It is quite unimaginable to hear veteran singer Mano crooning such a powerful number that many young singers might not be able to. It really evokes us to catch up with the visuals that would have Rajnikanth in some sensational shakes and movies. Neeti Mohan and Tanvi Shah add up their own sizzling factors to the track.

 5. Unmai Oru Naal Vellum 

Vocals: Haricharan 
Lyrics: Vairamuthu

 As the album winds up, there is a polite and innocuous song that has a beautiful narration by Haricharan. The emotional approach by Haricharan brings the complete meaning and its significance right throughout your senses. The lines are clearly conveyed and the song although carries some traces of a song from Baba with its beats, it has some elegance.

 On the whole, Lingaa songs are commercially blend with different genres and you can easily understand the story and placement of song throughout.  The songs are average in few parts, but ‘Mona Gasolina’, ‘En Mannava’ and ‘Unmai Oru Naal’ are the best picks.



Verdict : ARR’s international touch misses, but commercial is evident

Stars : 3/5
