Review by : Malathy Sundaram
Music Director : Yuvan Shankar Raja
Vocals : Yuvan Shankar Raja, Karthik, Haricharan, Rahul Nambiar, SatyanDayal, Sadhana Sargam, Roshni.
Lyrics : Vaali, Na.Muthukumar, Snehan, Gangai Amaren
Produced by T.G.Thyagarajan of Satyajothi Films and directed by Badri Venkatesh, this film is about a young boy who is obsessed with kite flying. In fact the film seems to have some scenes from the Ahmedabad Kite-Flying Festival too. Shot in Ahmedabad, Chennai and Thailand this movie has yesteryear actor Murali’s son Atharva making his debut along with Samantha, a lively young Chennai girl. Karunas and Prasanna also feature along with them. Yuvan Shankar Raja scores the music for this film.

Thaakkudhe…Kann..
Vocals: Yuvan Shankar Raja

Lyrics: Vaali


This song rolls along with sweet rhythms which seem to carry the slightest touch of Calypso. Yuvan threatens to go offkey all the time. But nice to listen to. Could make it to the charts.

Paitthiyam Pidikkudhu
...
Vocals: Karthik

Lyrics: Na.Muthukumar


A soft number from Karthik where the rhythms go still adding to the dreamy nature of the love song. Seems set on the Kiravani raga scale.

Kuppatthu Rajaakkal
...
Vocals: Haricharan, Rahul Nambiar, Satyan

Lyrics: Snehan


Though the song has a strong ‘heard-before’ mettu, Yuvan still manages to sustain our interest through clever rhythm arrangement and lively guitars. A smooth use of Natabairavi raga with the oft-repeated ‘ri ri ga ga’ swaras adding a cool touch.


En Nenjil...
Vocals: Sadhana Sargam

Lyrics: Na.Muthukumar


Another number on the Kiravani scale, but the use of strings and flute are quite melodious with just a little touch of drama. The swara build-up from the upper ‘sa to ‘ma’ in the second interlude two and a half minutes into the song is very neat. There is a definite dramatic aspect to the deep drums too.


Ullara Poondhu Paaru...
Vocals: Roshni

Lyrics: Gangai Amaren


You are so tempted to shrug off this song which makes you recall quite a few numbers gone before, but what saves it is some endearingly funky instrumentation and Roshni’s valiant singing. The raga appears to be Mayamalavagowla.


Verdict:

After experimenting with trendy and volatile stuff in his earlier movies, Yuvan seems to have settled for some soft, homely fare here-even to the point of sounding slightly complacent. The rhythms are interesting as ever. There’s also an intangible mellowness that seeps through occasionally in the songs. Surprise!
