Petta Music ReviewIt is always a golden opportunity when a young music director gets to work for a Superstar. Imagine getting an offer to compose for Superstar Rajinikanth. Previously Santosh Narayanan got two chances with Kabali and Kaala. We all know the rage he created with the Kabali title track.

Now, another young musician Anirudh Ravichander got a similar chance with Petta. The expectations are sky level as he is ruling the Tamil music scenario among the latest generation. The album is out, and we have to say the young musician has missed hitting the mark, big time.

The album comprised of a mixture of songs and theme pieces for individual characters. A couple of themes and two songs are good. The romantic number especially is the highlight. But, including that none have a classic appeal, i.e. a quality that would make the songs or the music standout irrespective of the fate of the movie. These are the type that would work as long as the film is running. Once it is out of cinemas, the songs are out of mind. The success of the album, if at all genuine is still a temporary one.

Karthik Subbaraj is not mainly known for his musical acumen, but he had a wonderful association with music director Santhosh Narayanan. One wonders why a change was made for Petta. As far as Anirudh goes, he seems to have got another chance to score for Superstar Rajinikanth’s next with AR Murugadoss. Here’s hoping he lives up to the hype then.
