Jilebi Mixing

Three songs from a film tentatively titled 'Jilebi' are leaked. News (and the songs) spreads like wildfire in the internet. Reaction is mixed. Then comes the clarification from the horse's mouth that they are just 'samples' and the final product needs more 'mixing'! The 'sound and mixing' when the official songs are out would be mind blowing, says the horse.
This is important. And strange. What happened to little things called 'tune', 'melody', 'lyrics' etc? This is a straight confession from the Rahman camp that what he is doing is nothing but sound mixing and engineering. Atleast for the film tentatively titled 'Jilebi' (of course Rahman is a great composer). I am an admirer of Rahman's music but this is not what i said, this is what THEY say!
nanna 'mix' pannungo :)

  • Assuming you're talking about Shivaji, I don't know if any amount of mixing can salvage the crappiness of 'Vaaji Vaaji Sivaji'.
    Is it just me, or would an 'Autokkaaran' song do better to establish Rajini as a stud-muffin than weird voices spewing idiocies to a cookie-cutter hip-hop beat.

    btw, this is no anti-ARR/pro-IR tirade cos' anyone with any semblance of taste knows 'Mayakkannadi' sucked like gravity.

    I've given up on Tamil Music. For now atleast.

  • Aparna,
    Padame beta-release pola irukku.. edho scenes seriya varla nu AVM la reshoot panraingalaam...

    thilak,
    Not that he CAN'T compose, but just look at that Shafeeq's mail (guess you wud've seen it by now)...

    Manoj,
    I haven't listened to the samples/songs and perhaps i never might...
    I doubt if even an Autokaran would work now because that concept has been (r)aped so much now by the wannabes...
    While i wouldn't say Mayakkannadi is crap ('Konjam Konjam' got me hooked though its the typical 2000-IR Keeravani duet), IR gives his best music these days for Malayalam, except for Kamal of course...

    Feddy,
    Amaam.. shoot panninde irukka... :))

  • Listened to the "samples". Sagikkala. Kandraavi! just a lot of noise... These don't stand a chance of "growing" on anyone. So disappointing! :-(

  • bulbmani,
    :)
    Have no idea about the words but disagree about the vulgarity part...

    "sindhiya veNmaNi sippiyin muthAchU en kaNNammA"
    Dunno who wrote the lyrics but it sure it isn't vulgar.. rather, i think its a gem :)
    Vairamuthu, vulgar??? mm i'm not sure...

  • Listened to the songs. They are O.K kind of songs. Rajini padathalula pattukku romba mukkiyam kedaiyaathu. ethu pottalum superhit thaan.. :-((

    I am keeping my fingers crossed. Let me see the final version. Anyway, the video will be a treat to watch :-)) for obvious reasons.

    BTW,
    I do believe that Vairamuthu crosses the limit sometimes. No offense. He is a great poet.
    btw,

    how about !

    "Anbe unathu mellidai paarthen. Adadaa brahman kanjanadi. satraey nimirnthen thalai sutri ponen. aaha avanae vallaladi"

    :-))

    enakku VULGAR ah therla idu :-))
