GURU SISHYAN MUSIC REVIEW
Review by : Malathy Sundaram
Music Director : Dhina
Vocals : Tippu, Bellieraj, Rita, Dhina, Suchitra, V.N.P. Venkat, Sathyaraj, Sundar C.
Lyrics : Vaali, Kabilan.
Produced by Radha Shakti Chidambaram and directed by Shakthi Chidambaram, this movie stars Sathyaraj, Sundar.C., Hemamalini and Kiran Rathod along with others. Dhina has scored the music, with five songs being featured in the album. Lyrics are by Kabilan with Vaali contributing to the ‘Vaangonna’ number alone. ‘Kedi versus Killadi’ reads the tagline of this movie ad. So the film could be a lighthearted one. The director assures us that any similarity to the earlier movie of the same name ends with the title.

Aandava Aandava...
Vocals: Tippu


A crisp number sung in an engaging style by Tippu. Funny lyrics that take a dig at the hypocritical attitudes of people. Charming use of Madhyamavathi raga scale. Could have a short spell on the charts.

  Guru Sishyan
 

Kathara Kathara...
Vocals: Pelliraja, Rita, Dhina

Very neat lyrics that remind you of Kannadasan! One is glad that Dhina has chosen to highlight them at the expense of music, but the flute is still delightful. Polished male vocals. The Aberi raga usage is pretty. Could hit the charts for its melody.

Vaangonna...

Vocals: Suchitra. Remix of ‘Bhadrakali’ number.
Lyrics: Vaali

The innocence that enveloped the earlier Ilayaraja number is lost in cheesy rendering here. But anyway this could have a momentary appeal to the youth. Stylish notes from the strings. (Veena?)


Aattaiyai Podu...
Vocals:
V.N.P. Venkat, Rita &Dhina.

This song mocks at the transformation of a young village girl. The repetitive rhythms do nothing to hold your attention.


Subbiah, Subbiah...
Vocals:
Sathyaraj, Sundar .C


Very amusing exchange between a misogynistic ‘guru’ and his hot-blooded ‘sishyan’. Nagaswaram and morsing add lightness to the song. Not a bad attempt at all from both. ‘Oru lady vandha dhaadi valarkkanum’ is quite funny. Wonder what feminists are going to say?


Verdict:

Dhina has not suppressed the tidy lyrics with layers of music, which is good. But just when the album is poised to take off, it falls back into a predictable mode. Dhina should take himself more seriously.
