Sasikumar is back in action as the actor and producer of this flick which co-stars Lakshmi Menon of ‘Kumki’ fame. NR Raghunanthan of ‘Thenmerku Paruvakaatru’ fame has composed the songs. Has he delivered the goods?
Kondaadum Manasu …
Singer: Anand Aravindakshan
Lyrics: Mohan Rajan
The album starts off with a rustic kuthu number which doesn’t have anything new to offer. It turns out like a typical hero introduction song with some glorifying and upbeat lyrics. The native percussions are expectedly loud while the nadaswaram is prominent. The lead singer is spirited while the female chorus is clichéd.
Rekkai Mulaiththen …
Singers: G.V.Prakash Kumar and Shreya Ghoshal
Lyrics: Madhan Karky
This duet is fast paced and decent to listen to. The harmonica and flute instrumentals add a cute little touch to this peppy number which has a likeable percussive loop too. G.V.Prakash’s name on the credits becomes the USP of the number; his high pitch portions stand out. Might visit the charts.
The percussions of this song are very similar to ‘Thom Karuvil’ from Rahman’s Star and ‘Veppamaram’ from Saamy. The lyrics talk about a female’s yearning for her love. Saindhavi is adequate for this track while the violin instrumentals stand out.
Kadhal Vandhu …
Lyrics: Na. Muthukumar
This is another love song with rustic percussions and native instruments like nadaswaram. Nothing new to offer here too with Haricharan singing at a higher pitch compared to his previous numbers. Run-of-the mill finish to the album.
Verdict: Except the track sung by G.V.Prakash and written by Madhan Karky, the rest of the songs are nothing much to rave about. On screen, Sasikumar’s screen presence might help the songs a bit.
