Anirudh Ravichander’s meteoric rise as a composer and back-to-back chartbusters over the last decade has led to comparisons with another legend of Kollywood- AR Rahman. This year has been particularly amazing for the young music director with films like Jailer, Leo and Jawaan performing extraordinarily well with his music being a great reason for their success. With Indian 2, the comparisons became even more common as it was Rahman who had composed the music for the first part 27 years ago and Anirudh took over the second part.
However, after watching Indian2 Intro many fans have now come to the conclusion that Anirudh is no match for Rahman. As it is a sequel to a major blockbuster and a prestigious project, Anirudh is receiving some criticism from audiences for his music in the Indian2 intro. 27 years ago, Rahman delivered one of the most remarkable BGMs in Tamil cinema history with Indian. The BGM and songs are still a massive favourite for the audience even today. Now, Anirudh should make a massive comeback in the next promotional content for Indian 2.
Many are already saying that replacing AR Rahman with Anirudh for Indian 2 is a bad decision. No doubt, Anirudh is the top most music director at the moment but one can not replace and recreate Rahman’s magic for Shankar films. The next promotional content is very crucial for Anirudh as mostly a song release is expected. This song must reach the expectations to overcome the negative response that Indian 2 Intro has received.
