Thada Thada---
Vocals:
Karthik, Kalyani
Lyrics:
Yugabharathy

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.



Megamaai---

Vocals:
Bellyraj, Sangeetha
Lyrics: Thamarai

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.




Kaadhal Salai---

Vocals: Haricharan

Lyrics: Srinivaas

This song gets its mood mainly from the stylish use of flutes and the tape rhythms right through. Notice how the bass, middle and top notes of flute are blended at the very start—the low note going ‘sa ni ni sa’, the middle one’ga ri ga ga ri ga----pa ga ri sa—‘ and the top gliding’ ga pa ni sa ri ga’. Is that the Dilruba you hear two and a half minutes into the song? Seems set in the raga Hamsadwani. Good vocals from Haricharan, but prose-like lyrics! Still, could be a hit.



Ayyayyayo---
Vocals: Tippu, Manikka Vinayagam, Jack, Yuvi
Lyrics: Na.Muthukumar

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.



Oh Nenjey---
Vocals: Harish Raghavendra, Reeta
Lyrics: Na.Muthukumar

Soft, 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.

Jack Unplugged---
Vocals:
Jack Anand
Lyrics: Srinivaas

Of course, all strings, flute and soft vocals in a song that puzzles over love. Jack Anand does have a smooth voice.



Verdict:


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 him.
