An AR Rahman musical

The first single from 'Whistle' ('Bigil' in Tamil) is out, on Sony Music South. Here we present its review.  The other songs will be reviewed as and when they are out.  


Singer: Revanth

Lyricist: Rakendu Mouli

If the Tamil version of the song was energetically crooned by actor Vijay himself, the Telugu version brings the striking voice of Revanth.  This one is not a Rahman number in the strict sense of the term.  A staple street song that is rooted in Tamil nativity, 'Verrekkiddam' might be seen as a peppy number by the Telugu audience as well.  They say Rahman's songs are "slow poison" at times and it has to be seen whether this one is in that zone.  Rakendu Mouli's lyrics do justice; it must have been hard for the lyricist to do the translation while not spoiling the context.
