Rahman is in a league of his own. The master composer that he is, is not tired of trying new sounds and experimenting various variations with his musical score.
Having achieved terrific feats in his filmi career, Rahman comes up with musical scores that challenge his previous bests. This is the stuff that genius is made of. A music composer, who can come up with melody, hip-hop or peppy numbers at his will, Rahman has brought out the youthful fragrance in him with 'Sakkarakatti'.
Working with a debutant Kalaprabhu, Rahman has brought out new sounds that have the potential to mesmerize listeners. With right vocals and excellent instrumentation, 'Sakkarakatti' is as sweet as sugar candy.
Songs like Taxi, Chinamma are sure to become anthems among the young at heart. The likes of Blaze, Benny, Madhusree and Chinmayee truly scintillate.
The songs have been designed in such a way that hearing them once is good enough for the tunes to stick on to hearts. The melody maker in Rahman is at his best in 'Sakarakatti' and the music album is sure to go places.
1. I Miss You Da (Chinmayee)
A brilliant number that is erotic and enigmatic. Rahman is at his best here, with flawless harmony. The musical interludes coupled with the erotic voice by the female lead takes the listeners by surprise. It is like feeling the soft warmth of the early morning sun while on a leisurely walk.
2. Chinnamma Jhalak UN Nenjil (Benny Dayal)
Song has been inspired by Rahman's Chinamma song in 'Meenaxi'. Beginning with a brilliant flute, it goes on to gather momentum. Benny Dayal's catchy voice adds to the pep. The lyrics are a perfect mach to the music with scintillating background percussion. A refreshing and reverberating number.
3. Elay Ulagam (Krish and Harish)
Rahman has proved once again why he is called the 'Mozart of Madras'. Seemingly a takeoff of Rahman's Robaroo in 'Rang De Basanti', the song is mighty pleasant with the violin and the guitars soothing our hearts. In this foot-tapping number, the music stands aloof from the lyrics. Sure to stick to the heart of listeners, the song would emerge the style statement among youth. Krish is oozing with energy and so is Harish.
4. Naan Eppodhu
A soft song that portrays Rahman's mastery in coming up with such articulate numbers. It is a brilliant composition with the use of the Veena and Guitar complimenting each other. The rhythm pattern and the catchy interludes are worthy of applause. The song is worth listening to especially with the different sounds.
5. Taxi Taxi (Benny, Blaze and Vion)
A perfect song for those who love to shake their legs. It is full of energy and vigor. Blaaze starts off in style, while Benny and Vion give him the right company. This is a typical youth chartbuster that should be heard all over Chennai in a few days. The peppy beats and open-throated voice of the singers give a unique feel.
6. Marudhaani (Madhushree and Rahman)
A great melody from the master. Reminding one of Sahana Saaral, the song has sweetness written all over it. A soothing number with less instrumentation but more vocals. Hats off to the composer for trying this new variation. Rahman, the singer, is more than impressive.
Hats off to Rahman who has retained freshness in the album.
'Sakkarakatti' is truly as sweet as sugar candy.
