2018 – Top 20 Tamil Songs >> 13

Song: Rowdy Baby
Movie: Maari 2
Composer: Yuvan Shankar Raja
Singers: Dhanush, Dhee
Lyricist: ‘Poetu’ Dhanush

After a series of disappointing albums, Yuvan is back with an astounding number in his own flamboyant style. ‘Rowdy Baby’ is a sensational ‘Kuthu’ song with rocking vibes in the fitting voices of ‘Namma Poetu Dhanush’ and Dhee. The song, choreographed by Prabhu Deva, has aleady set the screens on fire with a sizzling show from Sai Pallavi. The grinding guitar portions are terrific and sure to set the context on dance floors in parties. Though Dhanush tries to emote through the drunkard singing style for the kicks, it’s Dhee who clearly steals the show. The way she sings ‘My dear machan’ is bonkers. The song goes for a grand finish from 3:56 just as Yuvan did in ‘En Aaasai Maithiliye’ stacking beats after beats but it is kept a little short here. Wish it just went on and on just for Sai Pallavi’s riveting performance. Dhanush’s big contribution is through the lyrics in Kolaveri style, which is now a template for the urban teen pop culture. Simbu and Dhanush not only compete with each other in parallel stardom but also in their extraordinary services to the legacy of Tamil film poetry making Kannadasan and Vaali turn in their graves and take notice. Hope Dhanush comes up with more lyrical brilliance like ‘Pirai Thedum’ and enthrall the song lovers.
