‘I’ Music Review


When these Kingpins of Indian film industry – Shankar and AR Rahman come together, there is going to be a celebration beyond our imaginations and grander than we think. The audio launch of this ‘I’ is scheduled to happen in next few minutes and we bring you the officially labelled music review. ‘I’ is directed by Shankar and is produced by Aascar Ravichandran with Chiyaan Vikram and Amy Jackson in lead roles with AR Rahman composing music. The album has seven tracks and are based on unique themes


Singers: Anirudh Ravichander, Neeti Mohan

Lyrics: Kabilan

It looks like AR Rahman is constantly listening to the composition and vocalisation of Anirudh. The young music director has been constantly involved in the typical style of song intonation with local slang and has now roped him in for the track. Anirudh suits the song so much well in spite of lyrical lines by Kabilan remaining so simple. Only Rahman can bring out magic without anything special on lyrics and this one is ample evidence.

Ennodu Nee Irundhaal

Singers: Sid Sriram, Sunitha Sarathy

Lyrics: Kabilan

Having won incredible laurels for his mind-boggling song performance in the AR Rahman’s previous composition for ‘Kadal’ (Adiye), Sid Sriram is back with Rahman for this track that takes you sublimely to the different level of emotions through his voice. Sunitha Sarathy has only few lines to render and she does her best.


Singers: Nikita Gandhi

Lyrics: Karky

Amy Jackson plays a super model in this film and this should be her introduction song in the backdrops of fashion parade. Obviously, when you have these terms – AR Rahman, Shankar, Fashion extravaganza blended together, just envisage how it’s going to be so special on the screens. Nikita Gandhi leaves us so much astonished with her fantabulous voice.

Pookkalae Sattru Oyivedungal

Singers: Haricharan & Shreya Ghoshal

Lyrics: Karky

With almost all the songs turning to be a huge loud numbers with energy pumping beats, this one much alike Ennodu Nee Irundhal remains to be an exception. The pianos and flute on backdrops with mild strings add more beautification to the song and not to miss the wonderful singers – Haricharan and Shreya Ghoshal making it sound more impeccably outstanding.

Aila Ala

Singers: Aditya Rao & Natalie Di Luccio

Lyrics: Karky

Much alike other songs, AR Rahman has roped in the best bunch of signers and Aditya Rao is so much fantastic with his intonation. From the very first second of this track, things shoot up high on adrenaline and it’s going to be a brilliant visual treat. Not to miss the high-toned voice of Natalie Di Luccio as she finishes up the song.

Ennodu Nee Irundhaal (Reprise)

Singers: Sid Sriram, Chinmayi

Lyrics: Kabilan

While Sid Sriram managed to get the best appreciations in the previous version, this one gives it all to Chinmayi as the song when rendered by a girl in pathos with poignant lyrics binds us emotionally into it.

Mersalaayitten (Remix)

Singers: Anirudh Ravichander, Neeti Mohan

Lyrics: Kabilan

There are no changes in the composition, but Rahman adds more peppiness to the track with the energising and electrifying DJ stuffs into it and mark our words, it’s going to get bigger and stunning with the visuals and moreover, the party goers should have more stuff to celebrate.

Now and then, every album that comes from AR Rahman and Shankar turn up with lots of good surprises and the music lovers have a great album to relish upon. ‘I’ is truly an epitome of international touch by AR Rahman and this will surely get in for an outstanding translation on the screens.

Verdict: One of the best albums of this decade
