is what I am currently listening to again and again and again! πŸ™‚ Wherever you go, you find something written about the one and only SUPERSTAR/ SIVAJI! (Why should my blog alone be an exception? πŸ˜‰ ) Being the Superstar fan that I am (of course, not as much of a fan as I am of you-know-who-all πŸ˜‰ ), I too can’t wait to watch the movie in theatre soon! The more I watch/read anything about Sivaji, the more excited I am becoming! Maybe in another 10 days, I will watch it if I get the tickets, of course.

Rajni and Rahman are the only reasons I want to watch the movie. I have never liked Shankar’s movies much. I have found only parts of his movies good.

Back to Athiradee, still my favourite song from the movie! πŸ™‚ Speakers apart, volume as high as possible, song in repeat mode is how I am listening to it! πŸ˜€ Do that and you won’t feel like pressing the stop button. The guitar interludes and Rahman’s voice have not stopped amazing me yet! Sudhish Kamath calls this the best picturized Rajni song! Can’t wait to watch the song in theatre! What with the excellent sound effects in theatre, this song must be a treat to the ears! πŸ™‚ (Not sure though how much one can hear on top of the fans’ excited whistling and applause) Athiradee rocks!!!! And needless to say, Rahman & Superstar rock too!

    Personally I don’t favour Rajnikanth…dunno y
    this song rocks totally nevertheless…Keeping my fingers crossed, as far as the video is concerned πŸ˜€
    Is Sathej a Rajni fan :O

    Aparna, see the movie in a good theatre. It rocks. not only this song, all the songs, BGM and the fight sequences’ bgs and everything from ARR’s side. It is an extraordinary come back for him in tamil. ( i don’t like SOK!).

    That’s great! Can’t wait to watch it for ARR’s music!
    I am delaying watching Sivaji only because I want to watch it in a good theatre (preferrably Satyam) and want to hear ARR’s BGM properly.

    Thanks! Yup.

    Athiradee is my favorite one too and, picturization can suite only Rajni.

    I said to Thalaivar, while he was here for the Oakland concert, that the play count for this song on my IPod is hovering around 300 and he gave me that “Are you crazy?” look with a smile πŸ˜€

    I watched sivaji..sahara and athiradee are awesome. Talking about ARR’s work..this time he used the tunes of songs for BGM in major part of the movie with different instruments. Shankar’s script is with poor logic.

    This is the Mani Ratnam fan Bharath who usually posts on your blog (I see that there’s another Oakland Bharath who’s posted a comment πŸ™‚ )

    Saw Sivaji yesterday – The Athiradee song is easily the best in the album before you watch the movie – After you watch the video, you wouldn’t want to stop listening to it!!!

    I’m not a great Shankar fan coz I think he doesn’t do justice to Rahman’s music – I believe that Shankar gets the commercial best out of Rahman (Boys, Gentleman, Kadhalan, Jeans, Sivaji) just as Mani Ratnam gets the artistic and classic best out of Rahman… But In Sivaji, he has done a fair amount of justice to Rahmans songs… And ARR’s background score is amazing! (BTW I met ARR at the airport and escorted him to the lounge – 10 of the best minutes of my life!! πŸ™‚ )

    You met Rahman?! That’s great! πŸ™‚

    The BGM is the reason why I am delaying watching the movie. Want to listen to it properly.

    You too met ARR?! All Bharaths seem to be meeting him πŸ˜‰ It must indeed have been the best 10 minutes of your life! πŸ™‚
    πŸ™‚ Athiradee seems to have got the unanimous vote for the best song!
