No doubt SS Thaman is the most prolific music composer in Telugu and Tamil film industries. In a very short span of his career, the actor-turned-musician is credited for 50 films as music director. And the landmark 50th film is Mahesh Babu-starrer Aagadu. While the film opened to packed theatres, it got mixed reviews. And many lamented Thaman's work in the film.
Most of audience and critics opine that the songs in Aagadu look "so good" than they "sound". This itself says that the tunes are no match to the dances of Mahesh and Tamanna and the visuals captured by Guhan. It's high time for Thaman to reconcile and swiftly change his style of work, else Thaman will soon be in trouble. Many now describing Aagadu as "warning bell" for Thaman. It need to be seen whether Thaman comes back to his previous form and bounces back with a bang.
