Darbar Music Review

Superstar Rajinikanth’s Darbar has been one of the most profoundly expected films of 2020 and the musical album was something that has been looked high upon its launch. Directed by AR Murugadoss, the film is produced by Lyca Productions at a whopping budget. Nayanthara is playing the female lead role in this movie, which has Suniel Shetty and Prateik Babbar appearing as antagonists. Anirudh is composing music for this film, which has cinematography handled by Santhosh Sivan.

Chumma Kizhi 
Singers: SP Balasubramaniam and Anirudh

Maybe, for the first few times, it might have sounded a little outdated track, but after repeated hearing, it becomes a much favourite number. However, it might look little outdated and not such an appealing number. This is purely because, the lyrical lines are okayish kind and Anirudh’s over sound of percussions makes the vocalism of SPB more eclipsed.

Tharam Maara Single 
Singer: Anirudh

Songs like this clearly indicates that Anirudh wants to make sure that Rajinikanth finds a favourite zone in 2K kids as well. However, it’s so much mediocre for the lyrical lines aren’t really engaging.

Dumm Dumm 
Singer: Nakash Aziz

The song turns to be an instant attraction for the first team you hear it and that’s because of wholesome package. Be the instrumental quotients or the rendition by Nakash Aziz, they stand out to be a perfect one and with the visuals, it is sure to be acclaimed as a tailor-made song for Rajinikanth.

Thani Vazhi 
Singer: Yogi B

Yogi B’s erstwhile rap number for Superstar Rajinikanth was in Kaala and they are now back with yet another massive power-packed number. It is really a groovy number that instantly steals our attention. The lyrical lines are so much genuinely tailored for Rajinikanth, which completely lacked in the ‘Chumma Kizhi’. The shift of rhythmic accompaniments from one moment to another happens to be a perfect cherry pick. Anirudh’s rendition is yet another embellishment to the track.

Thalaivar Theme and Villain Theme

Thalaivar Theme as we know it already has grabbed our attention from the time of Motion Poster. When it comes to composing theme for ‘Villains’, Anirudh effortlessly steals the show and so happens to be the situation here. It’s really tremendous and quite enticingly appealing too.

While “En Vazhi” and “Dumm Dumm” stand out to be the best of Anirudh’s works, the other tracks aren’t up to the expected levels. Rajinikanth albums always have a specific paradigm and in this one, it goes slightly missing. However, it might brew well with the film’s trailer and full length theatrical release.

Verdict : Not a ‘Rajnikanth’ genre album, but okay of its kind 

Rating : 2.5/5
