Ash and Abhi both are staying in a gorgeous resort beside the Aathirapilly waterfalls to finish the takes of Hindi Ravan. The report is that Mani Ratnam is not talking gently to actors disclosing details of their characters in Ravan and is most disturbed by references to the heroic tale Ramayana.
Rahman’s favorite is up next with ‘Thok de Killi’. With sounds of bagpipes and more chorus singing, the song is uplifting. Drums and bugles sounds make it seem more of a ‘war’ song. After ‘Rasiya’ in Mangal Pandey, Rahman is here again with song of same genre. ‘Ranjha Ranjha‘ sung by Rekha Bhardwaj, Anuradha Sriram & Javed Ali has mix sounds of Punjabi folk and remixed beats. Javed Ali sounds so different in this one.
his is a clear winner! Khili re is Rahman-template in every note…that semi-devotional, heartfelt rendition by a lady – sounds functional, but is also the sole mildly-appealing track. Kata kata is a euphoric victory, but; immediately catchy and hummable, with enough mind-boggling layers hidden to unravel on multiple listens. Mani, as always, continues to bring the best out of Rahman!
