  • The track met with negative reviews.

The first single from Rajinikanth's forthcoming movie Kaala has met with negative reviews in large. The makers unveiled the songs from the three versions – Tamil, Telugu, and Hindi – on Tuesday, May 1.

Hariharasudhan and music director Santhosh Narayanan himself have lent their voices for the Tamil version of the song 'Semma Weightu'. Arunraja Kamaraj, Dopeadelicz, and Logan have contributed the lyrics.

The track decodes the atmosphere of slum and talks about Rajinikanth's character with retro music mixed with rap. The song has some powerful lines. Unfortunately, the song composition is not up to the mark and fails to register in the viewers' minds.

In the end, it turns out to be a below-average number, with the hopes that better tracks might be in store. 

The audience too is not happy with the song. They are comparing Santhosh Narayanan's intro song of Rajinikanth in Kabali and declared that the latest number has letdown their expectations.

Here, we bring you selected-few tweets posted by the viewers, sharing their disappointment over the number:

Krithika©: I don't do this usually. But die-hard Thalaivar fan myself, I sincerely hope and pray that I don't get to listen to this another time, even by some chance, before the movie releases. Paata da ithu laam??! Lyrics nalla iruku and that's about it.
