Review by : Malathy Sundaram
Music Director : Yuvan Shankar Raja
Vocals : Satyan, Haricharan, Karthik, Vijay Prakash, Vijay Yesudas, Swetha.
Lyrics : Na.Muthukumar
Produced by K.S.Srinivasan and Arya, this movie is directed by M.Rajesh (of ‘Siva Manasule Sakthi’) and it stars Arya, Nayanthara, Santhanam, Rajendran, Chitra Laxman, Lakshmi R and others. Yuvan Shankar Raja takes charge of the music department. The album lists 5 songs. All lyrics are by Na.Muthukumar.

Ada.. Boss..Boss...
Vocals:
Satyan

A lighthearted introduction of the hero who conforms to the present ‘college-goers’ tradition. Delightful arrangement of live percussions adds easy gaiety to the song. Based on the Karaharapriya scale with the lightest touch of Harikamboji, this song is sunny-especially the two music interludes before the charanams and the neat use of the ‘ma’ swara.

What a lovingly spaced out song in terms of rhythms! You are able to savor the lyrics of the bemused lover boy as well as the Natabairavi raga used here. Haricharan has another hit on his hands (after ‘thuli thuli’ from Paiyaa).Again the interludes –from the keyboards, flute and strings are so soothing- and the first one, one and a half minutes into the song that plays upon the notes ‘sa ga ga ri ni sa’ and ‘pa dha ni sa’ is very pleasing.

Thatthi Thaavum...

Vocals: Karthik

Indipop, eh? This is an amusing but endearing piece that takes off on a rather straight Kiravani scale. The ‘jazz’ like first interlude and the comical second one (remember ‘Iragai Pola’ from ‘Naan Mahaan Alla?’), the whistling and Karthik’s stylized singing all pile up impishness.


Ayile Ayile...
Vocals:
Vijay Prakash

Mmmm! This song is a mini manual on the joys of kissing! The different- sounding music bits are suitably airy, but one wishes the drums were a little subdued to relish all the tiny Karaharapriya ‘sangatis’ strewn all through this song. Surprise, Vijay Prakash comes off almost like Yuvan here! With aesthetic visuals, this song can take off.


Mama… Mama...
Vocals:
Vijay Yesudas, Swetha

Though the song starts off with a Sankarabaranam bit, the song appears to switch gear into Harikamboji. If it is so, then it must be ranked with one of the many lovely Harikamboji pieces that Ilayaraja has turned out. Peppy and well-rendered, this ‘courtship’ song has suitably subdued thavil and native drum accompaniment. Raja fans will like it.


Verdict:

This album, though it leans well towards the Ilayaraja ‘paani’, still captures young hearts with its mild self-mocking tone. A smile-worthy album and a neat departure from the usual Yuvan style.
- Songs to Watch out!
