The song itself derives its ‘josh’
from the lyrics which exhort us to have
a silent communion with nature and relish
its myriad splash of colours and forms.
The line ‘kaanum kannil nooru vannam
nee kandaal thavarethu?’ is striking.
The string interludes have been pleasantly
put together. Good expressions from Karthik.
But the tune doesn’t feel original.
A soft romantic number with such delicate
lyrics from Thamarai. She has strong aesthetic
sensibilities. Again, fine use of strings,
exploding in tender sangatis along with
the singers all through. Small but dainty
notes from the flute. We get to hear Bellyraj
after ‘kangal irandaal’ here.
The song, though, reminds us of an old
Harris Jayaraj number, claps and all.
This song gets its mood mainly from the
stylish use of flutes and the tape rhythms
right through. Notice how the bass, middle

A simple, but fun lyric from Muthukumar
that deals with some leg-pulling by a
dad-son duo. Speedy rap-like beats and
funky interludes characterize this number.
Watch out for the way the strings(dilruba?)
go ‘sa ga sa ri ni sa sa; pa ni
----pa dha ni sa’. The same instrument
goes on in bass notes too.
Vocals: Harish Raghavendra,
subdued rhythms in keeping with the yearning
lyrics. The mettu seems familiar, but
is easy on the ears because of the tender
use of vocal humming, strings and flute.Harish
scores again with clean vocals.
Vocals: Jack Anand
Of course, all strings, flute
and soft vocals in a song that puzzles
over love. Jack Anand does have a smooth
This music director should be appreciated
for his jaunty spontaneous touches in
music interludes. Good use of flute, tape
and dilruba and generally unfussy use
of rhythms. We look forward to more from
