AATTANAYAGAN MUSIC REVIEW
Review by : Malathy Sundaram
Music Director : Srikanth Deva
Vocals : Shankar Mahadevan, Karthik, Sadhana Sargam, Udit Narayan, Haricharan, Velmurugan, Naveen, Megha.
Lyrics : Krishnaraam, Vivega, Vaali
Produced by K.Muralidharan, V.Swaminathan and T.S.Rangarajan and directed by Krishnaraam, this movie stars Sakthi (son of director P.Vasu) and Remya Nambeesan in lead roles along with Nassar, Santhanam, Anil Menon and others. Srikanth Deva scores the music and the album lists six tracks.

Lakkadi...
Vocals: Shankar Mahadevan and Chorus
Lyrics: Vaali

Poor Shankar Mahadevan tries to infuse some spirit into this done-to-death mettu but to no avail. Tight lyrics and wind instruments alone add a glimmer. ‘Chinna Thambi’ is an amusing usage.

Pattam Poochi...
Vocals: Karthik, Sadhana Sargam
Lyrics: Vaali

  Aattanayagan
 
Crisp use of Indian percussions and other instruments and a catchy pallavi make you want to listen to it again. The Sankarabaranam raga used holds up this song. Could hit the charts fleetingly.

Chekka...

Vocals: Udit Narayan, Anuradha Sriram and Chorus
Lyrics: Vaali

Udit Narayan both amuses and exasperates you with his wayward diction. This song is a typical Srikanth Deva number with fun clarinet bits. Doesn’t grip your attention.


Vaarthaiyala...
Vocals:
Haricharan
Lyrics: Vaali


Compact lyrics from Vaali that speak of betrayal and sorrow. Haricharan adds the right emotion. A slow number, but a short one.


Onnarooba...
Vocals:
Velmurugan and Chorus
Lyrics: Vivega

Colorful lyrics that capture the mad atmosphere prevalent in village fairs! Velmurugan’s earnest voice and of course the nagaswaram and thavil add the right touch. Nothing to go ga-ga over.


Aattattha Paaru...
Vocals:
Naveen, Megha
Lyrics: Krishnaraam

A ‘dappaankutthu’ dance number which is neither here nor there. The refrain ‘we will rock you; ok thank you’ tries very hard to drag us out of the apathy we have sunk into by now, but to no avail. Haven’t we heard this mettu before?


Verdict:

For his own good, Srikanth Deva should break free of the ‘village disco’ type of songs he seems to be churning out regularly these days. Cheerful, no doubt, but boringly predictable.
