MYNAA MUSIC REVIEW
Review by : Malathy Sundaram
Music Director : D. Imman
Vocals : Shaan, Baby Harini, Sriranjani, S.Srimathi, G.Athreya, Laxman Aravind, Solar Sai, Dayal, Shreya Ghosal, Solar Sai, Kalpana, Naresh Iyer, Sadhana Sargam
Lyrics : Yugabarathy
Produced by John Max and directed by Prabhu Solomon, this movie is the story of a driver who faces hardships in the hilly terrain in which he operates. Vidarth is the hero and Anaka (of Sindhu Samaveli’) the heroine. D. Imman scores the music and all lyrics except for song no.3, are by Yugabarathy.

Mynaa Mynaa...
Vocals: Shaan

Though the Sankarabaranam scale-song itself is an old mettu, Shaan’s enjoyable singing and a neat background score (with the glockenspiel, woodwinds, harp and strings just making their presence felt) can take this song up in the charts.

Kichu Kichu Thamboolam...

  Mynaa
 

A sharp little kids’ number in what appears to be Brindavani Saranga raga. Don’t miss the raga essay on strings (sarangi?) and in the background humming. Is a must-listen for its newness.

Neeyum Naanum...

Vocals:
Benny Dayal, Shreya Ghosal

What a creative blend of the east and west here! Just look at the use of nagaswaram in this song! By locating this Harikamboji-scale piece on the ‘ma’ swara of the 3-kattai scale, Imman has been able to add Karaharapriya touches to the song too. Very well sung. Will hit the charts with vigour.


Jingu Chikka...
Vocals:
Solar Sai, Kalpana

This number transports you to lush green fields and quaint muddy village roads. Interestingly again, Imman’s use of 1-kattai ‘pa’ swara as base note here on the Natabairavi scale brings a light Todi raga touch here and there. Neat rhythms and neater singing. Is that the veena that has been put to trendy use here?


Kaiya Pudi...
Vocals: Naresh Iyer, Sadhana Sargam

Aha, some lovely violins we have here! Hmmm, Imman again goes for the 1-kattai ‘pa’ of Karaharapriya raga as base note and so we get to hear some Sankarabaranam touches too. Very well put together with an accent on softness, even in the top register.


Verdict:

Though a couple of mettu-s sound familiar, there is a definite musical maturity about this album where you have the eastern and western aspects of music entwining with one another. There is enough breathing space for the lyrics too.
