‘Kadhalil Vizhunden’ pair Nakul and Sunayna are back together for Kalpathi.S.Agoram’s’ Masilamani’. AGS Entertainment (remember ‘Thiruttu Payale’ and ‘Santosh Subramaniam?) are producing it and RNR. Manohar directs. The cast also includes Delhi Ganesh, Santhanam, Srinath and Meera Krishnan. D.Imman scores the music with Muthukumar, Vijay and Viveka penning the lyrics.

  Masilamani


Chiku Chiku Boom Boom---
Vocals: Keerthi Sagathia, Feji, Baby Harini
Lyrics: Viveka

Seems to be the kind of muscle-flexing song by the ‘pettai’ youth with a catchy opening line and good tempo from native drums. Is it the Blues Harp we hear that goes’ ni sa ri maa ri sa ni ni sa ni sa’ one minute into the song? And we hear some shehnai note too towards the end.



Dora Dora---

Vocals: Balram, Kalyani
Lyrics: Pa.Vijay

Again, is it the Blues Harp we hear in the beginning when the male voice goes’ pookkalin desama? ’This is a pleasant melody on the Karaharapriya scale with the smaller ‘dha’ swara chipping in. Plenty of soft twinkling notes from the strings that add sweetness to the song - we seem to hear violins, mandolin, dilruba and others. The song grows on you for its nice overall feel.



Nacka Romba Nacka---

Vocals: Benny Dayal, Rita
Lyrics: Na.Muthukumar

A very cool number, sure to climb the charts. The opening notes in Kapi raga that repeat often ’sa sa ni ni dha dha pa, ga ma ni pa ga ri sa’ set the rhythm for this song rendered with gusto by Benny. Sunny beats, good use of strings (is that the electric mandolin that plays the descending notes?) lighthearted lyrics, and added ‘dog barks’ all add zing to this song.



O Divya O Divya---
Vocals: Shaan
Lyrics: Pa. Vijay

A big sabaash to Shaan for his lovely articulation and his ‘sangati-laden’ singing. What is interesting about this number is that the interludes seem to be in Mohanam raga and Shaan touches upon Hamsadwani when he sings. The notes from the guitars, sax and keyboard have been suitably subdued to give importance to Shaan’s voice. Good!




Odi Odi Vilayada---
Vocals: Mukesh, Suvi, Emcee Jesz
Lyrics: Na. Muthukumar

Another stylish number from Imman with loud, generous native rhythms and the ’Kavithai Gundar’ man rapping in Tamil, English with a bit of Malay and Hindi! Jesz also appears on the screen in three different get-ups! One more fun number for the ‘Where is the party’ man Mukesh.



Verdict:


Imman has worked thoughtfully on this album, going by the tonal richness he has added by way of various string instruments and percussive rhythms. The songs are more tailored to Nakul’s personality than to the storyline! But definite to be appreciated!
