Like every true devotee of Superstar, I too bought CD of Chandramukhi.
And I think the album rocks! It is bound to grow on people and the songs will soon turn into an obsession.
All throughout the city, at every traffic junction today, I heard at least one car playing the songs from the movie full-blast!
My Top 6 from the album (Yes, the album has only six songs):
1. Annanoda Paatu… (Sure fire super duper hit, likeable from the first time you hear it!)
2. Kokku Para Para… (Just because it has the word Superstar in it!)
3. Devuda Devuda… (It’s not the best of Thalaivar intro songs but it will pick up once u see Superstar dancing to this!)
4. Konja Neram… (For Asha Bhonsle!)
5. Raa Raa… (This Telugu song that to me confirms that this film has lifted the plot from Manichitrathazhu, the best ever thriller made in India. Watch out for a review of that, me got VCD! So I promise to do it soon… The Malayalam version used a Tamil song as the theme song! But having said that, I’m pretty much convinced that the movie will have an entirely different feel and screenplay because it has Superstar in it! Even if you cast Superstar in Godfather, it will still come out looking like ‘Baasha’ and make Coppola want to remake Baasha!)
6. Athithom… (cuz a song with SPB singing for thalaivar just cannot go wrong!)
I’ve just put the CD cover back in the pooja room four times after it was removed from there! And my Mom’s now given up on me!
Now I feel good, off to sleep!
