The fever of Aagadu is now coming down but if you think that is sufficient then brace yourself because yet another biggie is creating equal vibration. We are talking about the film I directed by Shankar and starring Vikram. Though it is a dubbed flick from Tamil, the expectations on this one suddenly shot up after looking at the teaser and stills.

Currently, all are eagerly waiting for only one thing, the songs of I  in Telugu. There is a special craze for A R Rahman’s music but a common feedback is that the lyrics are the problem. This is because literal translation happens from Tamil to Telugu and the total feel is gone.

Even in Shankar’s last film Robot this happened. Many say the nativity should not be missed and it looks like a forced conversion. To quote an example, the film Kadali had the song ‘Gunjukunna…’.In Tamil, it was excellent but in Telugu it received huge brickbats. Throughout Rahman’s career, it is only Ye Maaya Chesave which was an exception in the list of Tamil lyrics converted to Telugu. Given this history, unless the audio release of I happens, we will not know its fate. The event is scheduled to take place on October 2.
