NAANAYAM MUSIC REVIEW
Review by : Malathy Sundaram
Music Director : James Vasanthan
Vocals : Ranjith, S.P. Balasubramaniam, K.S. Chitra Kannan, Megha, Sheba, Ramya, Devi Sree Prasad, Silambarasan, Sunitha Saradhy & Chorus.
Lyrics : Dr. Krudhaya Thamarai, James Vasanthan. Kavivarman, Yugabarathy.
Produced by S.P.B Charan’s Capital Film Works, written and directed by Shakthi. S. Rajan, this thriller film has Prasanna, Sibiraj, Ramya Raj, Yasmin Khan and the delightful SPB in pivotal roles. It appears to be the story of a bank robbery going all wrong. Sibiraj dons the mantle of the villain here! This is James Vasanthan’s first attempt at scoring music for a thriller film. There are five songs in the album.

Naanayam...
Vocals: Ranjith & Chorus

Lyrics: Dr. Krudhaya

The title song, probably, as it is quite short. Suitably dramatic with plenty of pulsating guitar sounds. The happy thoughts of a man who has found his potential.

Naan Pogiraen..
Vocals: S.P. Balasubramaniam, K.S. Chitra

Lyrics: Thamarai
  Naanayam
 

Everything about this Sankarabaranam-based song borders on the ethereal - be it the lovely lyrics, the probing flue, the twinkling notes from the sitar and the soft rhythms. If Chitra is expressive as ever, SPB is simply awesome, especially the way he articulates the second charanam. Truly irresistible, this man! The song could hit the charts soon.

Aasa…Aasa...

Vocals: Kannan, Megha, Sheba, Ramya & Chorus

Lyrics: James Vasanthan

A song with a hip-hop touch to it, this one is built on the heavily whispered word ‘Aasa, Aasa’ as if to underline the strong innermost desires that steer and motivate us all through our lives. A bit unusual to listen to.


Ka Ka Ka...
Vocals:
Devi Sree Prasad, Silambarasan
Lyrics: Kavivarman


The opening speedy bit (seems inspired by Irish dance music) sets the rhythm for the whole song. The joyful celebration of two young men who have come into a lot of money (not by ethical means). The interludes are quite energetic and foot-tapping, in keeping with the scenario. Well sung. Could hit the charts for some time.


Kooda Kooda...
Vocals:
Sunitha Saradhy & Chorus
Lyrics: Yugabarathy

It is the background music that is more enjoyable in this song, with the tiniest hint of jazz and reggae rhythms. Of course, Sunitha has put in a flawless performance. The song itself is about longing in love. Seems to be a tad too long. The sitar bit delights.


Naanayam (Version 2)...
Vocals: Ranjith & Chorus
Lyrics: Dr. Krudhaya


The slow and sonorous guitars hint at things gone awry from what was before. The lyrics too reflect the same sentiments. Good guitar work.


Verdict:

James Vasanthan has done it again - brought out an album that does not hurt the ears any way! His idea of exploring one raga in each album is commendable. A decent album, quite taut in its content.
- Songs to Watch out!
