Rajnikanth and Akshay Kumar starrer 2.0 is one of the biggest releases of this year. Directed by Shankar, the sci-fi action movie is the most expensive Indian film made till date. The trailer, which released recently amidst much fanfare, however received mixed reviews from the audience. As for the music of the film, with AR Rahman on-board as the composer the expectations are obviously quite high. So are the songs worth hearing? Let’s find out.

First song on the list is Nanhi Si Jaan which is sung by Kailash Kher, A R Ameen and Suzanne D’Mello. It’s a beautiful composition and the music is soft and soothing to the ears. It’s the kind of song that slowly grows on you and once it does, you are sure to listen it on loop. So hear the song not once but twice and you will end up liking it. Also, Kailash Kher’s magnetic voice is the icing on the cake. So if you are his fan then definitely add this song to your playlist.

Next up is Mechanical Sundariye crooned by Armaan Malik and Shashaa Tirupati. The songs starts off on a good note and the initial music is quite cool. It’s like a mix of trance and techno and I wasn’t expecting to like it but I did. However, that’s the only thing about Mechanical Sundariye that impressed me. The lyrics didn’t engage me at all and I had to hear the song very carefully to actually understand the wordings. If there was an instrumental version of this song, I would have recommended it but sadly not this one.

The next song is Rakshassi sung by Kailash Kher, Blaaze and Nakash Aziz. This one is high on beats with really good music. The lyrics aren’t bad either but it’s the music that really got me excited. A R Rahman, as always, has done a amazing job with the music. Overall, Rakshassi is a pretty decent number and it wouldn’t hurt if you guys heard it once. 

So far only three songs from the film have been released and while two of them are worth hearing, Mechanical Sundariye is disappointing. Having said that, I have to give brownie points to Rahman for giving such interesting music in this film. It definitely grabbed my attention.
