Pathinaaru is an upcoming movie which has Shiva, Madhu Shalini and Abhishek donning important roles. Directed by D Sabapathy and produced by A Sivashankar, Pathinaaru's music has been scored by Yuvan Shankar Raja. It is not a surprise that Yuvan's albums generate curiosity when it is released and so has Pathinaaru. We will review how pleasing the album is!
Ada Da En Meethu...
Vocals: Hariharan, Bella Shinde
Lyrics: Karthik Netha
Bella Shinde's voice stands out in the initial moments of the song which has a techno touch to it but settles down to a wonderfully soothing rhythm. Hariharan is a perfect choice for this song as he and Bella weave magic with Karthik Netha's lyrics. The flute interludes are blissful. A fantastic song to start with!
Yaar Solli Kadhal...
Vocals: Yuvan Shankar Raja
Yuvan's deep voice works well again in Yaar solli kadhal. Yuvan's trademark soul-blue genre is quite eminent and begs to be different from his earlier songs. The music is just apt for this song and is pleasant to listen to. Though it is a bit lengthy, the song is right up there among the best.
Vocals: Karthik Raja
Karthik Raja gets a song with a more formal tune. He displays a restricted rendering of the song which has interesting sounds and orchestration. Yuvan has displayed his skills wonderfully in this song and the end product is quite pleasing to the ears. Another song which adds to the charm of the album!
Vocals: Shankar Mahadevan
Just a few seconds into the song and Shankar Mahadevan's bold voice gives an insight into the song. Having a philosophical outlook, Vaanam Namadhey has throbbing music by Yuvan. Snehan shines in this song in many places. 'Yaaro nadai potta disaiyil naam pogamal naam pogum disai nalai vazhiyagalam' is testimony to this. Inspiring song and a good listen!
Yuvan Shankar Raja
Yuvan's theme music sums up the album. It could be just what the director wanted as someone of Yuvan's caliber can deliver more pulsating music as a theme. But just the right end to the album nonetheless!
Verdict: Pathinaaru's music is youthful and lovely to the years. The visuals may add more value to the song. But Yuvan has delivered another hit album for sure. Lovely orchestrations, right chords and soulful voices make Pathinaaru a worthy album to have in your collection. Pathinaaru is 'Sweet Sixteen'.
