The one thing that can be said about Kancharapalem is that, you feel that you know what is going to
The films listed in this series are in chronological order and do not reflect the quality of the soundtracks mentioned
There are 14 songs in the soundtrack and that may sound like a lot, but when the quality of the songs is so high, you’ll be left wanting more. Think of the soundtrack as a buffet with the difference being that every dish is amazing.
The first time Gautham Menon and AR Rahman got together, we got one of the best albums to come out this century. It is perfect for a romantic film such as Vinnaithaandi Varuvaaya. These songs work on their own but the visuals make it even more memorable.
Given the quality of Wildlife, I am happy to learn that Paul Dano has intentions of directing another film based on a family. If the result is anywhere near as good as this, it is going to be a treat to watch. I think you should give this film a try for it has one of the best acting performances of 2018 and also it is a good film.
Rang De Basanti is a beloved film for its story, performances and also the wonderful music given by AR Rahman. The film would have worked without the songs but having them made it feel more powerful.
It would be safe to call the films of Yorgos Lanthimos a bit of an acquired taste. Personally, I love his films and the way they are made but there are many who might be put off by how ‘weird’ it is. The Favourite is ultimately a film about power and more importantly love and to be honest, I loved it.
Sometimes you have a film that works without songs but is so much more memorable with them. This is the exact case with Rhythm. What you see is a combination of audio and video that tugs at your heartstrings and also puts a smile on your face.
There have been instances where people have gone to see a film just because of the songs made by Rahman. Sangamam is one such example and all the songs are testament to his skill.
Kirik Party which came out two years ago is about friends in Hassan, Karnataka. But their antics and interactions are so relatable that anyone will instantly connect with what is going on.
