Naan Aval Adhu Naan Aval Adhu
 
Music review By Malathy Sundaram
Directed by Kona Venkat.
Starring Madhavan, Sadaa, Shamita Shetty, Sayaji Shinde and others.

Maddy and Sadaa team up for the third time here. The film is a remake of Ram Gopal Verma’s Darling and is a bilingual in Tamil and Telugu. We have four music directors teaming up for the movie—G.V.Prakash, R.P.Patnaik, Dharan and Prasanna.V.
Naan Aval Adhu


Naan Aval Adhu---

Vocals: Karthik
Lyrics: Na.Muthukumar
Music: R.P.Patnaik

A pleasing opening with violin, strings and ghatam rhythms. The note ‘saa-ri-ga-paa’ repeats often which ties up the whole piece nicely . Somewhat pensive rendering by Karthik, whose soft modulations fall easy on the ears. Nice instrumental interludes where you get to hear sax, flute, and violins and some guitar . In both the charanams, each line is accompanied by a musical bit that is varied to suggest different moods. Interesting!

Naan Aval Adhu
Vaa Nila---
Vocals: Mahathi
Lyrics: Na.Muthukumar
Music: G.V.Prakash

You hear some nice piped instrument in the beginning. The song begins with whispers and you hear some whispered lines halfway through too. Of course the lyrics are sexy but not overtly so. Except for a fine trumpet interlude, you hear the keyboards mostly. Mahati tries her best to infuse melody into the song and the result pleases. You vaguely recall the old number of Ilayaraja’s ‘Aayiram malargale’.



Nee Dooramai Ponalum---

Vocals: Sunitha Saradhy
Lyrics: Na.Muthukumar
Music: Prasanna

The long drawn out opening piece of music builds up the mood for the entire song—that of eeriness. The entire song has a ghostly feel to it and even the instrumental interludes are carefully woven in with low ponderous notes dominating. The song ends with a chilling shriek. Sunitha has successfully conveyed a deep thirst in her voice, using the Madhyamavathi scale. But somehow, the lyrics and the mettu seem to stand apart. Why?



Kadhal Oru Kaatru---
Vocals: Shreya Ghosal, Nihal
Lyrics: P.Vijay
Music: R.P.Patnaik


You hear some soothing violins in the beginning that seem to lead one to the slow gliding rhythm itself of this love duet. Sweetly sung by both the singers. The interludes and the beat itself are carried over from the first song with some variations. Seems to paint the various shades of the emotions associated with love.



Aagayam Irangiya---

Vocals: Sunitha Saradhy
Lyrics: Na.Muthukumar
Music: G.V.Prakash

Another heavy eerie number by Sunitha where the voice takes precedence over the instruments. ‘Unai naan konjam kolvenada’ is a repeated phrase which reinforces the chilly mood of this number. Also seems set on the Madhyamavathi scale.



Verdict:

G.V.Prakash and others have tuned in some sober numbers here that was probably dictated by the movie itself. But you do feel a sense of disappointment over the lack of spontaneity in the instruments. Good show by Mahati, Sunitha and Shreya.
