Akira is an action drama film directed by A.R. Murugadoss and produced by Fox Star Studios & AR Murugadoss. The soundtrack has a total of six songs, out of which three are different versions of the same song. With the music composed by Vishal-Shekhar, here is our Akira Music Review and Soundtrack-
1. Rajj Rajj Ke
Rajj Rajj Ke song marks Sonakshi Sinha’s perfect singing debut. It is a power packed song showing Sonakshi’s anger and rage and we must say that she has made an impressive debut. The song also has vocals by Vishal Dadlani. The lyrics have been written by Kumaar. Overall, the song is lifted by Sonakshi’s high-octane voice and passion.
Arijit Singh has given his voice to Manoj Muntashir‘s lyrics. The composers have used very few instruments transferring focus to the vocals. But this is not one of Arijit’s best songs.
3. Kehkasha Tu Meri
One of the composers Shekhar Ravjiani has taken up the mic for the third song from Akira. The lyrics are again written by Manoj Muntashir. This song has the same composition as Shekhar’s Marathi song Haravali Pakhare from the movie Balak-Palak. The original song was beautiful and this version is good too.
4. Rajj Rajj Ke
The reprised version of Rajj Rajj Ke is sung by Nahid Afrin and Vishal Dadlani with the same lyrics. We must say that Nahid has handled this angry song way better than Sonakshi.
Baadal song is in the lovely voice of Sunidhi Chauhan with music composed by the duo. The lyrics of the song have been penned by Manoj Muntashir. Sunidhi has done complete justice to the song’s lyrics and the result is a sweet melody.
6. Rajj Rajj Ke (Remix)
This is the third version of Rajj Rajj Ke and the remix is done by Dj Kiran Kamath. He has done an average job in converting the angry song into a kind of a dance number.

Akira Music Review and Soundtrack- Our Final Verdict: Director A.R. Murugadoss has tried hard to make the soundtrack as emotional as possible but all that comes out is angst. The music is just above average and our pick of the lot is Rajj Rajj Ke, Baadal and Kehkasha Tu Meri.
Our Verdict: 2.5 Stars
