Review by : Malathy Sundaram

Music Director : James Vasanth
Vocals: Dr.Balamuralikrishna, Satya Narayanan, Naresh Iyer, Shreya Ghosal, Benny Dayal
Lyrics: Yugabharathi, Thamarai, James Vasanthan

Produced by M.Sasikumar, directed by Pandiraj and starring Jeeva, Anbu,Manonmani, Kuttymani, Mangalam and others, this kids’ movie had its album release done by the Carnatic music veteran Dr.M.Balamuralikrishna recently ,with Kamal Hassan receiving the first copy. The music for this film has been scored by James Vasanthan (he of the ‘kangal irandaal’ fame) and he has tuned four slightly different sounding numbers.

  Pasanga


Anbinaal Azhagaagum---
Vocals: Dr.Balamuralikrishna
Lyrics: Yugabharathi

A soft number with easy flowing rhythms to suit the lyrics that underline the joy that comes from embracing life with hope, love and acceptance. The flute, violin and ghatam just about add colour to the song. The doyen’s voice surprisingly wobbles. You hear shades of Maand raga here.




Naandhan Goppanda---

Vocals: Satya Narayanan and party
Lyrics: Yugabharathi

Quite a cool number, this! Apparently sung by kids, it has funky lyrics and an odd charanam where an old game is orally belted out. The song starts off with a ‘mock’ military flavour and moves into a ‘rock song’ like mode. Then it ends with a flourish! Could appeal to the school-going kids.



Oru Vetkam Varudhe---

Vocals: Naresh Iyer, Shreya Ghosal
Lyrics: Thamarai

The song attempts a stylish, western variation of Sankarabaranam raga and the musical interludes from the violin, keys and flute (not so smooth) also indicate that. But the rhythms seem stiff for this duet. You need to listen to this a couple of times to decide whether you will like it as the song itself moves jerkily.



Who’s That Guy?---
Vocals: Benny Dayal
Lyrics: James Vasanthan

A mini ’rock’ number, this, lasting for just two minutes. Fun to hear tamil words belted out like English ones!



Verdict:


Well, James Vasanthan is definitely creative, going by songs two and three. But there is an odd stiffness in places where music interludes are concerned. Something which will be ironed out with a couple more films, we are sure. Does have a ‘cool’ feel to it anyway!
