AVAL PEYAR THAMIZHARASI MUSIC REVIEW
Review by : Malathy Sundaram
Music Director : Vijay Antony.
Vocals : Ranjith, Nidha, Nancy Sylvia, Vinith Srinivasan, Vijay Antony, Malgudi Subha, Madhumita, Mahalakshmi, Valappakkudi Veera Sankar.
Lyrics : Na.Muthukumar, Babu Shankar, Amudhamani.
This film is produced by Moser Baer, and newcomer Meera Kadiravan directs it. We have Jai and Nandhagi essaying lead roles, with Theodore Baskaran, Veera Santhanam, Ganja Karuppu and others in supporting roles. Music has been scored by Vijay Antony and the album seems to feature nine numbers. What does Vijay have for us this time? Soft numbers of the ‘Ninaithale Inikkum’ kind or high-speed ones like those from ‘Vettaikkaran’? Let us see!

Nee Othai Sollu Sollu...
Vocals: Ranjith, Nidha.
Lyrics: Ekadasi


A soft romantic duet with pleasing keyboard music, but leaves you vaguely dissatisfied because the lyrics don’t flow smoothly with the beats. Anyway, good singing from both.

  Aval Peyar Thamizharasi
 

Guju Guju Goods Vandi...
Vocals: Nancy Sylvia & Chorus
Lyrics:
Ekadasi


Attractively fashioned on the Sankarabaranam raga scale, this song is bound to be a hit with young ones! Sweet singing from Nancy does elicit a big smile. The rhythms too echo the rolling of the train wheels.

Vadakka Thekka ...

Vocals: Vinith Srinivasan.
Lyrics: Ekadasi


A song of loneliness that comes with separation. Neat violins and percussive instruments, but again you get the uneasy feeling that the song has been stuffed into the rhythms. The song seems lightly based on the Chakravaham raga.


Palayankottai...
Vocals:
Vijay Antony
Lyrics: Na.Muthukumar


Aaah! Here comes the ‘trademark’ Vijay Antony number. Full of impishness, stylish, nevertheless. If all the swagger conveyed in the song could be translated well onto the screen, this song would be a comic delight to watch. Is bound to hit the charts very soon.


Kel Dhana Rangubhai...
Vocals:
Malgudi Subha
Lyrics: Eknath


This song seems to be inspired by the Marathi ‘Lavani’ tradition. The tabla sounds, ‘salangai’ sounds and other instrumental sounds have been so delicately recorded that they just caress your ears. Crisp lyrics that hint at the sorrow behind the happy dancing feet. Could also hit the charts for Subha’s vocals.


Ethanaiyo Kadha Undu...
Vocals:
Madhumita, Mahalakshmi, Chorus
Lyrics: Ekadasi


This is a kind of ‘tale within a tale’ in the sense it is a small dramatic piece about a ‘damsel in distress’ and her rescue by a ‘prince’. Could be a therukkoothu or puppet show or just something extemporized. Very neat recording of all instruments - mirudangam, tabla, ghatam and morsing as well as voices characterize this number.


Othayadi, Madathulae...
Vocals:
Valappakkudi Veera Sankar
Lyrics: Irama. Thiruvudaiyan


Both the pieces appear to be the background score without anyone vocalizing them. Veera Sankar, like Kailash Kher, has a resonating rustic voice. The first one yearns for his girlfriend to reach out to him and the second one bemoans the absence of his beloved.

Aaraaro Aariraaro...
Vocals:
Valappakkudi Veera Sankar
Lyrics: Ekadasi

A lullaby tinged with both pride and mild pathos. Probably a trifle too long.


Verdict:

Vijay Antony has delivered a neat package in keeping with the theme of the story. Each song is different in content. The Lavani number is quite interesting. If the film scores well, a couple of songs could become hits.
