It looks like music maestro A R Rahman wants to do films only with superstars. After composing music for ‘Puli’ starring superstar Pawan Kalyan, the ace composer returns to T-town with ‘Sye Raa Narasimhareddy’ starring Chiranjeevi after 7 years gap. Actually, A Rahman made his debut in Telugu with ‘Super Police’ and ‘Gangmaster’ but stayed away from Telugu cinema for many years.
However, Telugu music lovers haven’t missed his enchanting tunes since most of his Tamil films from ‘Roja to Gentleman to Robot’, since they were dubbed in Telugu and rocked musical charts. A R Rahman is a house-hold name among Telugu music lovers and he has carved a niche for himself in Telugu alongwith Tamil and Hindi cinema with his lilting numbers in the last two decades. Just recently, he delivered another musical hit ‘Yem Maaye Chesave’. Even though, his numbers in ‘Puli’ struck a chord with listeners, it’s poor box-office performance, could have disappointed him, forcing him to take a long break.
With return of King of Music, Telugu music composers like Devi sri prasad, Thaman have to work hard to dish out innovative tunes and enchanting background score, since they are poised against top-notch composer. However, return of Mozart of Madras augur well for Telugu music scene, as he is bound to raise the bar with his composition for historical film. Get ready, for another lilting musical journey.
