Abhiyum Naanum Abhiyum Naanum
 
Music review By Malathy Sundaram
Produced by Prakash Raj’s Duet Movies and Moserbaer Int; and directed by Radha Mohan. Starring Trisha as Abhirami, Prakash Raj as her father and Aishwarya as her mother with Prithviraj doing a cameo role. The movie is supposed to have a critically acclaimed storyline and revolves around the ever-special father-daughter relationship. After Mozhi’s success, naturally, this film is being eagerly looked forward to by discerning fans, because Prakash Raj has a natural

passion for good cinema. Vidyasagar has scored the music for this movie tuning four regular songs and three ‘songlets’( so to speak). How has the melody man expressed himself here? Let us have a dekko!

Ore Oru Oorile---

Vocals: Kailash Kher
Lyrics: Vairamuthu

As the title reveals, a song in the storytelling mode, introducing the main characters in a nutshell( in a dramatic tradition). Carefree folksy beats with minimum use of instrumental music like flute, keys etc; sung in a slightly high pitch by Kailash like a wandering minstrel of those days! His voice reminds one of Narendra Chanchal of yesteryears. But his pronounciation needs huge workouts! We have a doting dad, rock solid mom and of course an ideal daughter here.

Abhiyum Naanum
Vaa Vaa En Dhevadhaye---
Vocals: Madhu Balakrishnan
Lyrics: Vairamuthu

A very melodious number sung oh so delightfully by Madhu Balakrishnan. Though the song itself recalls snatches of ‘ boomiyile aadavanda’ of Vidyasagar and a wee bit of ‘malarndum malaradha’ an old hit, Vairamuthu’s lyrics really lift up the song. Unhurried beats and some soft interludes of flute and dilruba. Reflects a father’s proud enjoyment of each stage of his daughter’s growing up. The mettu itself is like the tripping of a young girl.


Pachai Kaatre---
Vocals: Sadhana Sargam
Lyrics: Vairamuthu

Again Vairamuthu scores—especially in the line’Pergalai maatri nee azhaitthalum kadalgalukkul suvarillai’. A song that just embraces humanity with warmth. And sung equally warmly by Sadhana. Vidyasagar has brought in a distinct hindi-belt feel to this song, be it the flute or the suggestive shehnai and ‘jalatarangam’- like effects in the interludes. A few snatches of Bhangra blend well with the song.



Azhagiya Azhagiya---
Vocals: S.P.Balasubramaniam
Lyrics: Vairamuthu

A doting dad’s anguish at his daughter’s suffering is articulated well by the veteran singer SPB here. How well he alternates pathos and seething anger in his rendering! Vairamuthu’s metaphors are subtle. The music bits are stormy to suit the mood of the song itself. Nothing original about the tune.



Chinnamma Kalyanam--

Vocals: Kailash Kher
Lyrics: Vairamuthu

One of the three ‘songlets’ in the album. Probably sung by a ‘family faithful’ during the marriage of the heroine. Soft and sentimental.



Moongil Vittu---
Vocals: Madhu Balakrishnan
Lyrics: Vairamuthu

A remarkably pithy verse from Vairamuthu. Sings of the sorrow of separation poured out by the father. The mettu recalls song no.2.



Sher Punjabi---
Vocals: Rehan Khan
Lyrics: Vairamuthu( is that so?)

A small bhangra ditty is what we have here complete with the dhol-like and ektara- like sounds.



Verdict:

Well, though Vidyasagar is not at his creative best here, we have to remember two things while listening to this album. One is that the songs have been used to actually carry the story forward and they seem to reflect specific moods well.They are not ornamental add-ons as we sometimes see in other movies. Second, Vairamuthu is a treat to listen to. Let us hope the movie delivers.
