A.R.Rahman strikes again with a wholesome album. He captures the essence of 3 cities magnificently. All songs are excellent, my favorite being "Chinnamma Chilakamma..". The two instrumentals are absolutely breath-taking. One has egyptian/arabic elements while the other is Rahman's creativity at best - "Cyclist Rhythm". He has created an awesome rhythm out of rubbish sounds like cycle bell sounds. And the instrumental ends on high with Rahman's close aid, Sivamani's breath taking percussions. On a whole, this is vibrant, soulful, rhythmic soundtrack. Great work by Rahman.
