Rockstar: Rahman trying too hard

Rahman generally produces excellent music but there is something terribly amiss with the latest hit "Rockstar." He seems to be trying too hard. It is a contrived piece of work that seems confused and confusing with way too many motifs and styles jammed together into a very noisy, pretentious mix. Yes, there is something interesting about Kun Faaya Kun and maybe even Nadaan Parindey but overall it is a mess.

Seems like Rahman is trying something new and if this is the first in a series of experiments then that is very good news, however, if this is just one of those fake attempts at difference then I feel somewhat sad. Let's see how it goes.
