Rahman’s latest projects in India, the anthem for Common Wealth Games and music for Rajinikanth-Aishwarya Rai’s Robot, have failed to impress many.
While he was made to rework on the CWG anthem, the reviewers have already tagged ‘Robot’ (Endhiran) music as one that will appeal to international music lovers but fail to get an Indian take to tapping his foot.
It can be recalled that the music of his last project, ‘Raavan’ too wasn’t impactful. Once out of the theatres, ‘Raavan’ music has gone out of fashion.
All this leaves us with just one question. Is Rahman’s music losing its charm? A trade analyst is also of the opinion that lack of time and overload of assignments is to be blamed. On condition of anonymity, the trade analyst shares with us, “After the success of ‘Jai Ho’ Rahman has become busier than he ever was. Now he has international projects too to deliver along with assignments back home. He also keeps travelling a lot these days. All these takes up a lot of his time.”
Further talking about his latest musicals not faring too well, the trade pundit said, “However, audience’s tastes and preferences are changing constantly too. May be they are just expecting something new from Rahman. Once he tabs that, he will again top the chart of favourites.”
Well, we hope Rahman gets back at mesmerizing us soon and doesn’t ignore his fans back home in a bid to impressing the international audience.
