Semma Weightu – Track Analysis
Singers: Hariharasudhan, Santhosh Narayanan
Rap Portions: Dope Daddy, Arunraja Kamaraj, MC Mawali, Stony Psyko
Lyrics: Dopeadelicz, Arunraja Kamaraj
“Semma Weightu” is the first glimpse of Superstar Rajinikanth’s ‘Kaala‘ soundtrack which carried a lot of expectations. Previously, the composed Santhosh Narayanan had a sensational track of “Neruppu Da” with the Rajinikanth and ever since the teaser of Kaala got released, it is fair to say that the fans are expected a similar track on this movie also. Is “Semma Weightu” a successor to some of the bombastic tunes of Kabali? Well, we have to say Yes and No. It got a mixed response from the audience.
The “Semma Weightu” track starts with the particular tempo, and the tune tries hard to sustain interest. The English words like ‘United and Slum‘ pop out of nowhere in the middle of the rap portion which was constructed in Tamil ill that point, it sounds so out of place. It is clear that track is bound to create so many mashups, cover versions, Youtube views, etc., Rajinikanth’s electrifying screen presence and repeated listening might just do the trick here.
Verdict: Lightweight track for Superstar Rajinikanth carries mixed audience response!
