Lyrics : Annamalai, Na. Muthukumar
The latest version of Sattam Oru Iruttarai is directed by a blood relation of S.A. Chandrasekhar (who directed the original) in Sneha Britto. It stars Thaman Kumar, Bindhu Madhavi, Pia Bajpai and Reema Sen. Music is by Vijay Antony and the lyrical duties are shared between Na. Muthukumar and Annamalai.
A standard western duet dished out with all the usual ingredients like passé lyrics and a groove that’s become common of this type of songs. Even though the melodies remind of earlier compositions from the music director, they do work in giving the listener some foot-tapping moments.
If the song was attempting to give the listener some goosebumps and possibly even inspire, sadly it falls short of achieving that. For one the song feels like a club number especially with the intro which reminds of a recent popular club anthem. The lyrics too seem to have suffered under the intention of being youthful and full of attitude. The song seems to get lost between being uplifting and a party song and the result is one that fails to work either way. Santhosh and Ajeesh sing in harmony and with great gusto but are let down by this mish-mash of a tune.
A bubblegum pop tune that serves up an overdose of sweetness. The song does have its moments especially with the synth interlude and the impressive classical overdubs towards the end. The melodies too are catchy in parts and the track survives from being entirely cringe-worthy as threatened by the English rap portions. Naresh Iyer and Harini deliver their best without being entirely challenged.
Any Vijay Antony commercial album would be incomplete without a racy kuthu song, and it usually hits the mark if he’s singing it. His fans would be happy that there is one in this album, but it isn’t his best. The song has peppy singing from the music director himself and Srilekha Parthasarathy and it also has its share of catch phrases to work with the gallery but it lacks that ‘spark’ that fired up his more popular kuthu numbers in the past. The blatant resemblance to the ‘Chillax’ number from Velayudham brings this number’s worth down.
This is a soft romantic duet and the composer has thrown in a lot of elements into the song that traverses from rock to reggae to a symphony like string section. Andrea offers her brand of singing style that suits this western composition. A sax solo is thrown in too, for good measure.
