Music review By Malathy Sundaram
Produced by Moser Baer and Sasi, who is also the director of this film.

Sasi operates under the Nesagee Cinemas banner. This is his fourth film as director. It stars actor Srikanth in a villager-type role for the first time and introduces a new heroine Parvathy. The film’s music director S.S.Kumaran also is a debutant here. He has composed music for six songs in the album. How has this youngster fared?

Choo Choo Maari---

Vocals: Mirdula, Srimathi and Parthasaradhy
Lyrics: Na.Muthukumar

A song apparently by kids and is supposed to have been filmed on them too. A jaunty number with words rendered in a typical village-kid fashion. The interludes are kept appropriately simple—just drums, keyboards and some lovely flute. Names of animals, eatables roll off the kids’ tongues with plenty of giggles and at the end ‘kollaippakkam pogathey, kottikkidakku jangiri’ is very impish! The song seems to be based on the Natabairavi scale.

Vocals: Harini, Tippu, Karthik and Master Rohith
Lyrics: Na.Muthukumar

A pleasingly written love duet. ‘Mazhayum illai veyyilum illai appuram eppadi vandhadu vaanavil’ is rather cute! One minute into the song we have a racy flute piece in Dharmavathi raga and another in what appears to be Harikamboji. In fact the flute interludes in all the songs are very pleasant. The rhythms are soft too here, in spite of the speed of the song.



Aavaram Poo---

Vocals: Chinmayee
Lyrics: Na.Muthukumar

A song projecting a mood of utter yearning and the music has also been framed to go along smoothly with the mood. Again, the flute creates magic with the keys! Very minimal use of other instruments like the violin, guitar and a couple of others. Chinmayee has a voice that can easily cover higher notes effectively without hurting the ears. As you can see here. Is the raga Patdheep?



Paasa Mazhai---
Vocals: S.S.Kumaran
Lyrics: S.Gnaanakaravel

Well, let us indulge the music director now, shall we? A simple song of affection sung with a slight nervousness by Kumaran. The voice is yet to take smooth modulations and if he seriously plans to sing, he can polish his pronunciation too. Nice native drums.



Dheena---

Vocals: Shankar Mahadevan, Hemambiga
Lyrics: Na.Muthukumar

This song is a mini-rhapsody in rhythm, so to speak! The longest song in the album, it uses the drum, thavil, mrudangam and ghatam sounds in delightful combinations right through the song, which itself moves on a staggered beat. We do have some flourishes of guitar, trumpet and violins on the way, but the drums fascinate. Seems set on the Madhyamavathi scale. Joyful singing by Shankar Mahadevan as expected. What is special about a ‘Kayatthaaru katthaadi’?



Sivakasi Rathiyae---
Vocals: Periya Karuppu Devar
Lyrics: S.Gnaanakaravel

Riotous lyrics that make you laugh out loud! And this singer has a mellow voice which carries a wink in it all the time. The flute and guitar combine with the keys in interludes but it is the lively nagaswaram that carries the song through. You seem to hear Hindolam raga but with the use of the big ‘dha’ note.



Verdict:

Let us applaud this composer for his tasteful use of live native rhythms and flute. Though you don’t get to hear intricate interludes, the overall effort is aesthetic. Two or three songs from this album could make it big in the charts if the visuals capture the imagination of the public. Let us hope the film does well too, slated as it is for a pre-diwali release.
