Superstar Rajinikanth’s “Kochadiyaan” ,  a much awaited film for the past one or two years has seen the day in the form of single released on Oct 7thand the 3-D animation is directed by our Thalaivar’s daughter ,Soundarya Ashwin Rajnikanth. You can very well expect a masti-mass intro song ,when it is Rajnikanth-A.R.Rahman-SPB combo and it is titled ‘Engae Pogudho Vaanam with the lyrics penned by Vairamuthu. Essence of the song is strongly felt in the following lines.

“Aagayam Thaduththaal Paayum Paravai Aavom
Maamalaigal Thaduththaal Thaavum Megam Aavom
Kaadu Thaduththaal Kaatrai Povom
Kadale Thaduththaal Meengal Aavom”

This one holds high spirits and has the traditional lines alike Superstar’s films till date ,  shaping up the historic figure – Kochadaiyaan, who is celebrated as a great emperor of the 8th century. This title track is regarded to be a lucky mascot for the film, as Trinity compositions have had always been a big hit. The track record goes with films Muthu, Padayappa, Sivaji and Enthiran. Coming back to the song ,  anyone who listens to it ,will fall for it magic and by default, place this song in their playlist since it brings the soulful nature through its lyrics , lead voice and the chorus. The background music is lilting with trombones ,bass trumpets, claps, extended string sections,drums. But there can be a small comparsion drawn to the Soundtrack “Logo Mania” from Jack the giant slayer as it carries a very little part at the start of the song.

The movie is made using the motion capturing technique, used in Hollywood films like Avatar , Adventures of Tintin and has Superstar Rajnikanth,Deepika Padukone, Sarathkumar, Shobana, Aadhi, Jackie Sheroff, Nasser as part of its cast. Also, Kochadaiyaan is the first Indian film to use this technology. Cinematography is handled by Rajiv Menon and Editing is done by Antony. The Budget of the movie is around 125 crores.

It is likely that the film’s album will be released by end of November and sources say the movie might hit the screens this 2013 on Rajini’s birthday which falls on the 12th of December.
