Rahman does it again with Azhagiya Thamizh Magan
Tuesday October 30 2007 19:00 IST
CHENNAI: Azhagiya Thamizh Magan is veteran composer A R Rahman’s second Tamil album of the year after Sivaji, which broke all records.
Though not as good as the first one, it disappeared from the market within moments of its arrival! That’s the Rahman magic.
The top five Tamil albums are:
1. Azhagiya Thamizh Magan – Music Director: A R Rahman. The excitement of a Rahman album for a Vijay starrer was so much that all the copies were picked up within hours of its arrival.
2. Thamizh MA – Music Director: Yuvan Shankar Raja. Though it is an excellent album by Yuvan, Paravaiya ennai sung by maestro Ilayaraja for his son is the pick.
3. Pollathavan – Music Director: G V Prakash. The remix by Yogi B of the 1970s song Engeyum eppothum sung by S P Balasubramaniam in Ninaithale Inikkum is being lapped up by the new generation.
4. Bheema – Music Director: Harris Jayaraj. There is no news of the film but the album by Harris Jayaraj is still at the top.
5. Satham Podaathay – Music Director: Yuvan Shankar Raja. Though Yuvan’s music for Vel is not up to the mark, his Sathum Podathey is still a rage.
By Moviebuzz | Saturday, 03 November , 2007, 11:53 In audio sales among the films due for Diwali, it’s Vijay’s Azhagiya Tamil Magan, which is topping the charts. A.R Rahman’s music for Tamil superstars has always worked big time. Vijay fans have lapped up the album though it does not have typical numbers you associate with Ilayathalapathi films.
And the big surprise is that the nephew of A.R Rahman, G.V Prakash’s Pollathavan, audio is very popular with the youth and is at the number two position. The uncle and nephew between them has pushed Yuvan down in audio sales this Diwali.
Yuvan Shankar Raja’s worst nightmare has come true, as he has been on a signing spree dishing out music with factory precision. In the process his music lacked newness, as he dished out tunes for three Diwali films- Kannanmoochi Yenada, Machakaran, Vel.
Among the lot Kannanmoochi Yenada and Machakaran songs are hummable, while Vel is not his type of film and the audio is a major disappointment.
