ILAMAI IDHO...IDHO... MUSIC REVIEW
Review by : Malathy Sundaram

Music Director : Vidyasagar
Vocals : Benny Dayal, Rahul Nambiar, Timmy, Vijay Yesudas, Sainthavi, Karthik, Ajay, Maya, Prasanthini, Sujatha, Rehan Khan, Srilekha Parthasaradhy.
Lyrics : Kabilan, Kadhalmathi, Na. Muthukumar, Kalyanji.

Produced by G. Dhanalakshmi, directed by B. Raja and starring Avitej, Thirinath, Vivek, Vainavi and Parvathi, this movie has Vidyasagar scoring music for it. Both his recent albums ‘Peraanmai’ and ‘Kandein Kadhalai’ have some fresh original music in them and his fans must be surely anticipating another bright album from him. Let us see how he has fared this time. There are six songs in the album.

Naalu Suvarum---
Vocals: Benny Dayal, Rahul Nambiar, Timmy.
Lyrics: Karky

This song could right away strike a chord in the hearts of youngsters for its cute sentiments (Hola, Amigo), fun lyrics and the jaunty Spanish beats we hear on and off. But can it make it to the charts?

Vaanam Puthidhu---
Vocals: Vijay Yesudas, Sainthavi.
Lyrics: Karky
  Jaggubhai
 

This song draws much of its color from the background music that has been so lovingly piled on to the lyrics. Well done, Karky – such sensitive lyrics! Very pleasing inputs from the keys, flute and rhythms. Vijay sounds so much like his father that it almost brings a lump to your throat. The song appears to be on the Sankarabaranam scale.

Kulukki Kulukki---
Vocals: Karthik, Ajay, Maya, Prasanthini.
Lyrics: Karky

A joyful, noisy celebration of the process of falling in love, to the accompaniment of thundering guitar sounds and assertive keys! Pretty lyrics again. The tune somehow has a ‘heard before’ feel to it. Could make a brief visit to the charts.


Kadhal---
Vocals: Sujatha.
Lyrics: N. Jeyantha

Again the tune sounds somewhat familiar. Sujatha’s rendering is as faultless as ever. The keyboards and strings offer fine support. Is it the raga Kalyani that we hear in this song?

Angadhai---
Vocals: Karthik, Sricharan.
Lyrics: Karky

A short bit with guitars. Just listen to the quaint names (all denoting women) that roll out. Does ‘Angadhai’ also mean ‘woman’? The Tamil Agaradhi does not seem to list it. Could be liked for its feel.

Kuthu Paattu---
Vocals: Rehan Khan, Srilekha Parthasaradhy.
Lyrics: Pa. Vijay

Oh, Ho, here we have Vidyasagar doing a Deva! Whatever prompted him to come up with such an odd piece, we don’t know. Rehan Khan’s voice leaves a lot to be desired. The way the rap bit slides into the native rhythms at the start is funny.


Verdict:

Mmmm…Vidyasagar fans could be in for a bit of disappointment here. The album does have its bright moments—especially the keyboard bits, but the distinctive touch so special to the Melody Maker goes missing this time.
