Regarded as one of the finest music directors of our country, ‘Ilaiyaraaja’ himself is an attestation of unconventional and venerated music, for any film. Astutely, R.Balki has joined forces with the music maestro ‘Ilaiyaraaja’ to step a notch ahead for his much awaited film ‘Shamitabh’.

Akshara Haasan’s debut, Amitabh Bachchan and Rekha’s on-screen reunion and Dhanush’s comeback were all perhaps not enough for R. Balki thus he dragged the music genius for composing the music of ‘Shamitabh’ after his hit ‘Paa’. Being ‘Ilaiyaraaja’s 1000th film, Shamitabh has stood itself in another good stead. Well this isn’t all ‘Ilaiyaraaja’ has even composed a song for the film which bestow an ode to the Indian film Industry.

Sannata Song

Shruti Haasan’s voice for her sister Akshara makes Sannata another special number. The indo-western fusion music of the song is simply made to get attention and the track does the same from the start.

Sha Sha Sha Mi Mi Mi Song

The title itself suggests the quirkiness of the song and yes the music and the whole sense of the song is utterly quirky. Crooned by Caralisa Monterio, the song brings out the sense of Bollywood’s bygone era.

Thappad Song

As the title of the song ‘Thappad’ sounds out of the ordinary just in the same way, the song sung by Suraj Jagan and Rap Earl D’souza is thoroughly interesting and out of ordinary.

Lifebuoy Song

Lifebuoy song is another quirky take from the movie ‘Shamitabh’. Interestingly the complete song alleges to ‘Kill the Kitaanu’ and not just that, the song calls to mind the old Lifebuoy advertisement.

 Piddly Si Baatein Song

Piddly brings us a masterpiece with the alliance of two geniuses Ilaiyaaraja and Amitabh Bachchan, turning it yet another special track.
