It’s going to rain songs, as at least 12 Tamil films’ music will be launched in the coming weeks

It can’t get better than this. Fans of Tamil film music are in for a treat as the audios of at least a dozen eagerly awaited Tamil films are to release in the course of the next three weeks.

It all begins with Mani Ratnam’s much-talked-about Kadal. Although there will not be a formal music launch, the CDs will be available in stores from November 23. Incidentally, the release of the track ‘Nenjukulle…’ on MTV has already evoked interest in the music, scored by A.R. Rahman.

Two days later, Bala’s Paradesi, featuring Atharvaa and Vedhika, is expected to release. The film has music by G.V. Prakash and the musician is said to have come up with soul-stirring numbers for the acclaimed filmmaker’s latest offering. Prakash says, “The film is set in the 1940s, and has five songs, including a lovely duet. The numbers are completely Indian.”

Theme music

The music of Haridas, a film directed by GNR Kumaravelan of Yuvan Yuvathi and Ninaithale Innikkum fame, will come out on November 26. The film has three songs, apart from a theme song. Says Kumaravelan, “There’s a song about cops in this film. Vijay Antony scored the music for the song in just two days. There is also an inspirational song sung by Shankar Mahadevan.”

Now, the big one! Apparently, Kamal Haasan’s team is seriously mulling over the possibility of having the audio launch of his multi-crore trilingual Vishwaroopam on November 28. The film is said to have five songs in all, scored by the trio of Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy. Kamal, it is said, has sung three and penned two.

That will be followed by Vasanth’s Moondru Per Moondru Kaadhal on December 1, and will have music by Yuvan Shankar Raja. The film has six songs. The multi-starrer will feature Cheran, Arjun and Vimal in the lead.

The same week, Bharathiraja’s Annakodiyum Kodiveeranum is likely to have its audio released, as will Vishal’s much awaited Samar. The film, directed by Thiru, has music by Yuvan Shankar Raja.

On December 5, the audio of Sneha Britto’s Sattam Oru Iruttarai, a remake of the blockbuster hit by the same name, is set to release. The film, whose story is by S.A. Chandrashekar, will have soft launches in three cities on November 22, 23 and 24 prior to the grand launch on December 5.

Joining the competition in the second week of December will be the music of Madha Gaja Raja, a fun-filled entertainer from Sundar C. Featuring Vishal and Varalakshmi in the lead, the film will have music by Vijay Antony. Around the same time, the music of actor Nakul’s Naan Rajavaaga Pogiren, too will be launched. The film’s music has been scored by G.V. Prakash. It is believed that the audio will be released by Simbu and Dhanush. The film has five tracks aimed at today’s youth. Actor Karthi’s Alex Pandian will have its music released on December 12. The film, directed by Suraj, has music by Devi Sri Prasad. That apart, the music of Bejoy Nambiar’s David too is likely to release during the period.

Now, isn’t that one big treat?
