Mersal is Vijay’s 61st film and also the 100th movie to be produced by Sri Thenandal Films. Directed by Atlee, it also stars Kajal Agarwal, Samantha Ruth Prabhu, Nithya Menen, Vadivelu, Sathyaraj and Kovai Sarala. The maestro, in the 25th year of his musical journey in films, performed the two unreleased songs Macho lyrical video out today.
The other new song is Macho, sung by Sid Sriram and Swetha Mohan. The singer who has a track of unconventional songs now has yet another unique love number to his credit. While the basic rhythm reminds of the song Bang Bang (from Hrithik Roshan’s movie by the same name), it is the orchestration and the lyrics that stand out. The contrast of strings and the brighas in the melody against the tech sounds in the track make for another fascinating fusion.
The song is also another example of how the maestro accommodates contemporary trends in his numbers. While it was the loopy app in OK Kanmani (Parandhu Sella Vaa), here it is the endearing mix of Tanglish in Vivek’s lyrics — Speakitta, touchitta, takeitta are some of the products of a language synergy, now part of common lingo.
