Lyrics: Vairamuthu

Neerparavai is the return of director Seenu Ramasamy, music director N.R. Raghunanthan and lyricist Vairamuthu who has written all the songs in the album. In their last outing two of those individuals went on to win National Awards. N.R. Raghunanthan will be looking to gain a strong foothold in the industry with this album.

Vijay Prakash and Harini

The song opens with interesting vocal effects that show that the music director is beginning to expand his production horizons to stay in tune with today’s demands. But the track immediately jumps into his forte of folk style treatment. The tune is pleasant and the melodies are good helped by lively singing by the duo of Vijay Prakash & Harini. Vairamuthu’s words are chirpy.

Para Para...  
G.V. Prakash

This is a fantastic song that N.R. Raghunanthan can be really proud of composing. The orchestration is simply superb with just the string section and some assistance from the flute. G.V excels in his range easily traversing from soft singing to more open styles. It’s a simple yet a truly uplifting tune.

Devan Magale...
V.V. Prasanna and Saindhavi

Acoustic guitars are a mainstay of this album and its presence is felt yet again on this track. A church-choir chorus followed by a mouth organ intro leads into the verses of a romantic duet between V.V. Prasanna and Saindhavi whose voices come as a refreshing change. The organ effects in the background are nice but it’s become very commonplace.

Raththa Kanneer...
Harish Raghavendra

The usage of an electronic drum-line in this track comes as a surprise especially after the heavy hearted vocal intro by Harish Raghavendra, and also since N.R. Raghunanthan has shown his preference towards native percussions. The piano melody is haunting. The lyrics seem talk about self reflection and the singer raises strong questions. It’s a sad tune as the title suggests.

Para Para (new)...  
Shreya Goshal

Music director N.R. Raghunanthan has clearly decided to use one of the best voices in the country for a tune that probably is his best till date. Shreya Goshal makes it extremely hard to choose between this version and the male version sung by G.V. Prakash.

Yaar Veettu...
Anand Aravindhakshan

Another soft tune with effective arrangements of strings and percussions. The guitar line is quite nice but it’s buried under the louder percussions perhaps because the music director enjoys a show of strength in the rhythm section. Anand Aravindakshan has a fine young voice and delivers a promising performance.

Para Para (sad)...  
Singer(s): Chinmayi

The tune is so good that it’s on the album thrice! Chinmayi this time sings the same song but the words are designed to express the grief of a loss. She sings with utmost precision uttering every single word with great conviction. This version along with the visual could raise the hairs on your arms and possibly make your eyes watery.

Verdict: Neerparavai is N.R.R’s best album so far that deserves a few more listens. Para Para is a track that could make him a household name.
