'Indian 2' song stokes an AR Rahman vs Anirudh fan war


The first song from 'Indian 2', titled 'Souraa' in Telugu, is an utter disappointment. There are no two ways about it. Since Lyca Productions released it as the first song, one can be sure that they think it is the best song in the album.

Anirudh Ravichander has been compared with AR Rahman in the context of 'Indian 2' for obvious reasons. 'Indian' ('Bharateeyudu') had music by ARR. That was in 1996. The songs in 'Indian', which are nearly 30 years old, are among the greatest classics to emerge from Tamil cinema. Its music and background score remains unchallenged by time.

As such, 'Souraa' has been trolled by ARR's fans, thereby triggering Anirudh's fans. While Anirudh is no match to the genius of the old ARR (of the 1990s and 2000s), the Gen Z music fans are delusional.

'Bharateeyudu 2', directed by Shankar and starring Kamal Haasan in the lead, will head to theatres on July 12. The new date was made official the other day.
