But the music is not upto scratch. Although I hate comparisons. All the 5 movies that Shankar has released so far, the music has always met (or exceeded) expectations and was never a let down. This is the first time I am hearing every song and I am thinking "wtf.. whats goin on here..". Harris Jeyaraj may have something going for him in Minnale and Kaakha Kaakha but he has never shown the brilliance that ARR seems to throw out so casually. Purely based on the CD and having not seen the picturization ( sometimes HJ songs appear better in a picture context like 12B), I have to say moving to HJ from ARR is a bad decision.
I hope the movie is good. I still have strong expectations of Shankar making a comeback after a very poor ( and extremely forgettable) boys. Anniyan stars Vikram . It is supposed to Shankars most ambitious project. This is a script that he initially wrote for Kamal Hassan ( the movies was named Robot then). I think every year at least 2 (at the most three) Tamizh movies make a visit to the theatre worth the trip. And if Manirathnam or Gautham Menon do not make a movie this year, this could be the last Tamil movie for me, for the year. I hope its good. I like shankar.
