PORKKALAM MUSIC REVIEW
Review by : Malathy Sundaram
Music Director : Rohit Kulkarni
Vocals : Karthik, Caralisa, Shaan, Nisha, KK, SP.Charan, Candy, Mimosa, Samantha.
Lyrics :  Na.Muthukumar
Produced by D. Baskar Rao, directed by the young debuting Bandi Saroj Kumar who is all of 24 years old, this high-voltage ‘action-packed thriller’ features Tinnu Anand (we saw him in ‘Nayagan’ and ‘Bombay’), Kishore, Satyan, Smitha, Lal, Biju Menon, Ponvannan, Sampath and also Atheesvar, a Burma-based man who is essaying a negative role. Music has been scored by Rohit Kulkarni. All the songs have been penned by Na.Muthukumar.

Yaro…Ivan Yaro...
Vocals: Karthik, Caralisa


This song, which probably introduces the hero, piques our interest with probing lyrics. Built on heavy thudding rhythms and some small trumpet and string work, it has been sung well by Karthik.

Indha Boomiyil...
Vocals: Shaan, Nisha

The overpowering effects of love are being conveyed here through Shaan’s passionate singing. The strings and oud (?) are slightly subdued and the rhythm dominates. Could visit the charts for Shaan’s effort.

Aran Thiran...

Vocals: KK


The title song, sung in a rather masculine fashion by KK, to the accompaniment of pipa (at the start), oud and strings. Again the rhythm takes centre stage, probably to suggest the dynamics and horror of the battlefield. Appears to move on the Suddha Danyasi raga scale with fleeting Natabairavi notes in between.


Unnale...
Vocals:
SPB.Charan

A high-spirited rendering by Charan here. The lyrics speak touchingly of the healing power of love. The string interludes are crisp. Strong visuals could enhance the emotional appeal of the song on screen.


Porkkalam Theme...
Vocals:
Nisha, Candy, Mimosa, Samantha
Lyrics: Vivega


A small piece with pounding, brooding rhythms that probably highlight the toughness of the hero.

Verdict:

The small CD trailer that accompanies this album projects the hero as a tough-as-nails warrior who stops at nothing. The album itself is bristling with rugged masculinity. Don’t look for nuances and frills here. But an interesting debut.
