Review by : Malathy Sundaram
Music Director : Gurukalyan
Vocals : Kalyan, Malathi, Suresh, Sadha, Karthik, Jeya, Rajagopal, Karthikeyan, Gurukalyan, Prashantini, Sathyan
Lyrics : Snehan
Produced by P.S. Sekar Reddy and directed by Nanda Periasami, this movie stars Harish, Alex, Gopal and Visak along with Shammu. Gurukalyan scores the music and we have six songs in the album. Snehan has penned the lyrics.

Dhom Dhom...
Vocals: Kalyan


A neat ‘songlet’ that hints of love and heart-thudding. Melodic use of Nalinakanti raga, flute and strings.

Aathili Pithili...
Vocals:
Malathi, Suresh, Kalyan, Sadha


This duet is quite raunchy .The percussive treatment and nagaswaram alone redeem it. Meant solely for the front benchers.

Methuvai Methuvai...
Vocals: Karthik, Jeya, Rajagopal


The operative word here is ‘methuvai’. It drives the drizzly strings, the laidback rhythms and the caressing voices. Thavil sounds add a sudden touch of passion. The continued use of swaras like ‘pa ni sa’ ni ri sa’ etc; point to the use of Sriraga in this song. Though the song has a Telugu flavor, it is very easy on the ears.

Ponnu Iva Poottha...

Vocals: Karthikeyan, Gurukalyan

A traditional ‘kummi’ like song that announces the ‘coming of age’ of a young girl. Charming harmonium-like notes and thavil sounds add color to this song with innocent lyrics. An offbeat use of Sankarabaranam raga.


Mathithan Yosidaa...
Vocals:
Prashantini, Sathyan

The title number, so to speak, is cheery, but the lyrics are so prosaic. The song urges to look forward and improvise, as one moves through life. The oft-heard ‘ri ri ma ri ri sa’ and ‘sa ri pa---ma ri sa’ notes point to Revati raga. Could perch on the charts for a brief while.


Acham Thavir...
Vocals:
Kalyan

This song seems to be put together with lines from Mahakavi Bharathiyar’s ‘Pudhiya Aathichoodi’ and ‘Mazhai’. Wonder why there is no acknowledgement of it on the album. Anyway, this inspirational lyric, based on the Kiravani raga scale has fine percussive sounds and violins.


Verdict:

This debutant composer does show promise, judging by his adherence to melody and neat rhythms. He should be aware by now how much effort goes into making an album that captures the immediate attention of listeners. We wish him all the best.
