What happens when Venkat Prabhu and Yuvan Shankar Raja get together? One big block buster! We witnessed the power of this duo in the earlier films ‘Chennai 600028’, ‘Saroja’ and ‘Goa’. There is little doubt that the music of ‘Mankatha’ will rock with the Tamil audience. One more specialty of the film – this is Thala’s 50th film.
The film has nine tracks in all. One is an introduction song of the hero in this case ‘Ajith’. One is a theme song and one is a remix. Apart from these three tracks the film has six tracks that belong to various genres. One more highlight in the music track is that Yuvan has crooned a song with his legendary father, music maestro Illayaraja. This is the first where the father and son have lent their voices for the same song.
The director of the film Venkat Prabhu is immensely happy with the way the songs have been composed. He feels that most of the songs will be chartbusters. Sources close to the ‘Mankatha’ team have revealed that three songs have been recorded. Sources also indicated that a music firm has offered a whooping 1 crore for the music rights of this film.
‘Mankatha’, produced by Dhayanidhi Alagiri’s Cloud Nine Movies, is expected to hit theatres on Ajith’s birthday, May 01, 2011.
