NAGARAM MUSIC REVIEW
Review by : Malathy Sundaram
Music Director : Thaman.S
Vocals : Ranjith, Megha, Priya Hemesh, Naveen Madhav, Rahul Nambiar, Sri Vardhini.
Lyrics : Vairamuthu
Produced by Khushboo and directed by Sundar.C., this film stars Sundar.C and Anuya Bagawath in lead roles and Vadivelu and others in supporting roles. Vairamuthu has penned all the lyrics and Sai Thaman has composed the music for this film. The album lists six tracks.

Thikki Thikki...
Vocals:
Ranjith, Megha

A soft number with pleasing string work and gentle rhythms. You are able to savour the lyrics that speak of shy, budding love, on the Natabairavi scale. The mild shifting of scale towards the end probably hint at the heightening of emotions.

Yen Peru...
Vocals:
Priya Hemesh

Certainly a ‘nautch girl’ number, but there is something about the way it has been put together in the Sankarabaranam scale that keeps our

comfort level intact while listening to it. Don’t be surprised if it pops up briefly on the charts.

Kuthudhu...

Vocals:
Naveen Madhav

Hmm, amusing lyrics here! Kudos to Thaman for working out an interesting rhythm pattern around it so that you don’t strain to listen to them. Well sung too. The same Natabairavi scale but look at the variety he offers! The rap part has been used innovatively.


Pudicha...
Vocals:
Rahul Nambiar, Sri Vardhini

The lyrics are downright cheesy and this is where the album wobbles. Thankfully the neat percussions, trumpet and the delightfully breezy Karaharapriya raga notes( ma dha pa ma ga ri; sa ni sa ri ni sa etc;) add cheer to this crude duet. Why, Sundar?


Iraivaa...
Vocals: Rahul Nambiar, Ranjith, Naveen Madhav

The minimal use of instrumental interludes and tight rhythms hint at mild tension and an inner tussle. Neat blending of voices.

Theme of Love...
Vocals:

A soft awakening of love in the lady’s heart. The instruments are suitably subdued.


Verdict:

Thaman is certainly emerging as a very ‘ear-friendly’ composer with every album of his. Firmly grounded in aesthetics, he should now look to slowly expanding the musical depth in his songs. This uneven album is evidence enough though we don’t know what the director needed.
- Songs to Watch out!
