Happy Birthday Anirudh Ravichander: Beyond Kolaveri Di and Arabic Kuthu. Learn more about “Jawan” musicians

I know what you’re thinkingWhy introduce this person Anilda Ravicander In the North, the music composer is known worldwide for his breakout song, “Why this Kolaveri?”but do you know Dhanush and Anirudh Ravichander don’t like being called Kolaveri Boys (Dhanush once said he wasn’t proud of the song anymore)? There are Let’s take a look at some of his USPs of Anirudh who on his birthday turned him into the most popular composer in the Tamil industry making his way into Bollywood with the songs of Shah Rukh Khan . Javan.

master of hooks

In the era of reels and stories, people no longer have time for “slow poison.” Gone are the days when songs provided time to grow. Now the track has to go into her head for the second or third time. Otherwise, it won’t show up in your Spotify or YouTube playlists. Anirudh has the expertise to come up with jingles, choruses, or gibberish tunes that are instantly haunting and need to be great in no time. You may not like the song as a whole, but the hook will live on in your head without rent.


One of the main genres of songs commonly heard in the South is folk numbers. Quite a few of the films here are set in villages. The market for Tamil musicians is also determined by their proficiency in the genre. AR Rahman may be introducing new sounds to the industry now, but he also had to prove his proficiency in folk with Kizhakku Chemmayile (1993) and his Uzhavan (1993). Similarly, like Rahman, Anirudh also brought his own touch to the Tamil cinema folk his genre. It’s especially amusing how Anirudh used singer girlfriend Anthony Dasan on the song. It would be easy to use his rooted voice for a true blue folk song, but how would you classify Dippam Dappam (Katvakra Rendu Kadar), Katikida (Khakhi Sattay) and Aha Kalyanam (Petta)? I’m not sure if it’s a folk song, but it’s definitely a great song.

Ordeal with Bollywood

Jawan is not Anirudh’s Hindi debut as it is perceived. The music composer has already composed the underrated song ‘Yun Hi Re’ for his David who is bilingual in Tamil and Hindi. One glance at the song’s comment section will make you wonder why it took Bollywood so long to embrace his Anirudh. Also, Anirudh has sung both the Tamil and Hindi versions of the song.

Recognition was long overdue

Critics of Anirudh have taken issue with his ringing sound and the racing tempo of his songs. However, the musician rarely gets a justification for some of his minimalist melodies. Melody is not what comes to mind when talking about Anirudh. But when you hear Neeyum Naanum (Naanum Rowdy Thaan), Megham Karukatha (Thiruchitrambalam), and Po Nee Po (3), you can’t help but wonder why.
