Muttathu Pakkathile---

Vocals:
Venkat Prabhu
Lyrics: Gangai Amaran


A light, fun number from Venkat. A song that puts together the little teen pleasures of village life — movies in ‘tent’ theatres, girl-chasing and other things. The mettu looks familiar because of the Sankarabaranam scale employed. Nadaswaram, thavil and other live percussion sounds add to the ‘village’ effect. As the singer says, ‘idhu graamathu raasa paattu’! funnily, the pallavi line keeps changing after the charanams.




Kadaloram---

Vocals: Yuvan Shankar Raja

Lyrics: Vaali

The lyrics are stylishly seductive without being vulgar in any way—what else can you expect from Vaali? A soft rhythm oriented ‘ballad-feel’ number from Yuvan which talks of budding love and the piped sounds go well with the ‘aching’ feel conveyed by the song. Better pronounciation would have helped, though. Has a Natabairavi raga rouch.



Chinnan Sirusuga---
Vocals: Javed Ali, Bela Shende

Lyrics: Vaali

Another cute number from Vaali, where the young lovers recall a lot of simple loving gestures stretching right from childhood. Trendy but slow rhythms from the rhythm pads, drums carry this song through. The initial notes ‘sa sa sa sa sa ri ga ri ga ri sa---pa dha ni dha pa ma ga ma pa’ are used in bits later on, which bring a nice melodic feel to the song.. Nice use of guitar. Natabairavi, again

Na Dharmanda---
Vocals: S.P.Balasubramaniam
Lyrics: Gangai Amaran

Just look at the amount of life SPB infuses into this staid lyric—truly touching! A song about some kind of a dramatic person set to energetic native rhythms with occasional inputs from the trumpet and guitar.



Oru Nimisham---
Vocals: Velmurugan
Lyrics: Gangai Amaran

A song which has some ‘oppari’ like plaintive lines interspersed with speedily rendered lines. Liberal use of native instrumental sounds like parai, pambai can be heard. Interesting play of keyboards to convey soft mournful notes.

Kadaloram---
Vocals: S.P.Charan
Lyrics: Vaali

A repeat of song no.2 , rendered with such polish by Charan that he reminds us of his dad in his younger days, right up to the tiny impish ‘sangatis’. You hear the lyrics better too.

Verdict:

Though this film has strong rural overtones, you are surprised by the fact that you don’t get to hear violins and flutes as much as you’d have expected. Yuvan seems to have concentrated more on rhythms. Vaali scores again. Overall, the album is worth a listen.
