The rarest combination of Rajnikanth-KS Ravikumar-AR Rahman has always delivered the best on its course that comes with Muthu and Padaiyappa. Their third venture together titled Lingaa is leaving no one away from excitements. The album of Lingaa comes with five different tracks and they’re completed packaged with commercial elements.
1. Oh Nanba
Singers: SP Balasubramaniam, Aaryan Dinesh Kanaga
The introduction song sounds slightly retro in style and little different from the usual paradigms of AR Rahman. SP Balasubramaniam takes the song to a different level and the lyrical lines by Vairamuthu completely comprise of philosophical messages to fans that includes Keep limit in everything you do.
2. En Mannavva
Singers: Srinivas, Aditi Paul
It’s a period romantic song shot in the backdrops of a grand set of palace filmed on Rajnikanth and Sonakshi Sinha. The rhythmic accompaniment in the backdrops slightly reminiscence of Swaasame from Thenali, but the rendition portions by Srinivas and Aditi Paul completely differs with new panache. En Mannavva is a slow and sweet melodious treat blend with classical ragas.
3. Indianae Vaa
Singers: AR Rahman
Inspiring lyrics that focalise on the human spirits and a protagonist’s call to unite everyone together for a good cause... The preludes in few portions slightly bring back the memories of ‘Sahana’ from Sivaji followed by interludes with signature of Raanjhanaa title track. But AR Rahman’s vocalising style empowers the lyrical lines by Vairamuthu and the chorus has been done with excellence indeed.
4. Mona Gasolina
Singers: Mano, Neeti Mohan, Tanvi Shah
Standing away from rest of the songs that are completely bound to the film’s theme, Mona Gasolina is a peppy trance treat for those who expect Rajnikanth in mass romantic cowboy style. The visuals in this song give an impression much similar to ‘Athiradee’ from Sivaji - The Boss. Mano throws up a surprise by crooning such a tremendous vocalism and the sassy female leads with Neeti Mohan and Tanvi Shah emblazon the songs with high calibre.
5. Unmai Oru Naal
The album ends with a much compelling philosophical song based on the pathos of an honest man. Haricharan has exerted the best of emotional factors into every line of this track. It is clear that the song is filmed on the Rajnikanth in the period portions and his downfall caused by some dishonest personalities. The song drenches you in uttermost emotions and is sure to moisten our eyes with its montage visuals. The beats although resemble ‘Ivan Vasam Irundhadhu Yezhu Varam’ from Baba, but has a different approach with voice and other instrumental aspects...
Overall, Lingaa album is a complete package of commercial stroke by KS Ravikumar-Rajnikanth-AR Rahman. You can easily have a clear assumption on what these tracks could be on the screens and characters in it. Obviously, it caters to everyone’s tastes and with visuals on Rajnikanth; they’ll much more exceed our expectations.
