The audio of Surya’s Hari directed Aaru had a soft launch. There are six songs tuned by Devi Sri Prasad, a mixture of fast and melodious numbers. The film is slated for release on December 1.
Yesterday (Nov 11) Surya visited music shops to promote the audio. In Aaru Surya plays a rowdy and hence all the songs are the usual dapankoothu ones like ‘Soda Bottle…’ sung by Shankar Mahadevan which seems to be the introductory song of the hero.
Another mass number ‘Freeya Vidu…’ sung by Jassie Gift, Vadielu, Crash Mukesh and Karthikeyan. The songs are written by Na Muthukumar and Pa Vijay have full of English and local Tamil usages which have become a part of Chennai Tanglish vocabulary.
Now the big question is whether the songs will sell? Devi Sri Prasad’s last film with Surya Mayaavi could not create any impact. Prasad himself is on trial as his Tamil film albums have not reached anywhere near the sales of his Telugu albums. Now everything depends on how the TV promos of Aaru will look and if they are able to rock, then Devi Sri Prasad too rocks!
