A.R. Rahman in a conference meet revealed that he will be composing the music for Vijay’s next film which is currently untitled. Rahman composed for Thalapathy’s Mersal in 2017 and it became the most successful album of the year. Mersal was also the biggest Tamil hit of 2017 increasing Vijay’s stardom by a hundred folds. Thalapathy 62 will be directed A.R. Murugadoss, who has a good track record with Vijay. Muruga made 2012’s blockbuster Thuppakki and 2014’s action-drama Kaththi with Vijay. Both of their collaborations seemed fruitful for their careers and now after 4 years they are working on a film, any details of which is a well kept secret by the makers.
Speculation are that Thalapathy 62 is actually Thuppakki 2 in which Vijay’s character will be seen solving more missions undercover. Rahman’s contribution to Vijay’s Mersal was unparallel and it’s because of songs that film reached out to the whole nation. Interestingly, Vijay will be made to sing a song or two in the album depending on the situation and scene. Rahman is basically magical and he can do wonder with almost anything, it will be the first time when Vijay will actually sing a song in one of his films.
Murugadoss has had a bad time recently unlike Rahman and Vijay, when he delivered the biggest Telugu disappointment of 2017 by the name of Spyder. It’s the first time he worked with Prince Mahesh Babu and the second biggest Telugu film of all time after Baahubali. Not merely by the collections but the audience’s reaction was not overwhelming for the film. Mahesh was already coming after a disaster by the name of Brahmotsavam and Spyder was literally the most important film of his career so far. Muruga is definitely looking to bounce back with Thalapathy 62 and re-claim his place as one of the most celebrated director of Indian cinema.
