Tamil superstar Dhanush's next film Maari, which released its trailer on June 25 with a bang, promises to be another step forward for the actor. He plays a gangster for the first time in his career but does so in that characteristic Dhanush style. And despite being a gangster film, it has enough of dance and music routine.
So, what about its music? Produced by composer Anirudh Ravichander of Kaththi fame, the songs, unfortunately, are pretty standard fare: energetic kuthu paatus (local songs) that one can dance to along with a few softer love songs. The latter, while not exactly ground-breaking in their lyrics, are at least interesting.Maari doesn't just mark the Tamil film star's debut as a crime lord. Dhanush has even written some of the songs such as the fast-paced Maari Thara Local and the jazzy love ballad Oru Vidhu Aasai.
Maari will be in the cinemas on July 17.
