Music review By Malathy Sundaram
Saamida: Directed by Vadivudaiyan, starring Dhanushya, Ravi, Sembi and others. Music composed by Indrajit ET. He has scored 6 songs for the album. The film is supposed to have a slight spiritual touch to it, with the city of Kaasi forming the backdrop. The storyline is said to be taut and absorbing. The album itself has a haunting feel to it. Let us check out the songs.
Saamida

Aanavam Azhindhadhadi
Vocals: Adarsh, Gopal Sharma, Vadivudaiyan VC

Starts off on a ‘stormy’ note . The flute essays plaintive notes and keeps pace with the singer. The sangatis are high-pitched and slightly dramatic. So is the male humming. The words somehow don’t fall into the rhythm easily. The rhythms are halting, and some kathakali-like beats add to the agonized mood of the song.


Saamida
Aayudham Yaendhaa
Vocals: Ananth

A cry from the heart for an escape from the caste-ridden, violence-ridden society. You hear ponderous beats, matched by an equally ponderous voice. When there is a reference to music (isai) alone do you hear some soft tinkling sounds. Otherwise quite a serious number.


Hey Machina

Vocals: Vinaya K Sathiyan

Well, this number has some three strands of music bundled into one. It starts off with the music of an old number ‘aasaiyae alai pole’ and then switches into a vaguely Arabic come hither sexy number with fast beats and in the middle, we have some hip-hop stuff too! Slightly cacophonous sounds but nice to hear some trumpets. Creative thinking, but to what effect?



Kaadhal Desathile
Vocals: Ananth, Sam.P.Keerthan

The song has a ‘hoary’ feel to it, recalling rebirths or past life flashes—some such stuff. You hear horses neighing, sad vocal humming and the flute, keys and strings keep up the mood. A

morbid kind of duet, quite pathos-laden. Reminds you surprisingly, of ‘rojavai thaalaattum thenral’ a yesteryear hit.



Onrai Onru

Vocals: Prasanna, Ganga, Sam.P.Keerthan

A slightly upbeat love duet, thank God! But has an odd ‘Hindi song’ flavour to it—especially the soft rhythms, humming and the general movement of the song. Here too the words don’t fall easily into the rhythm of the song. Again some kathakali beats too.



Ratchasa Rajavu
Vocals: Ananth, Ganga

A song that makes you recall ‘poykkaal kudirai’ dances. A dramatic number based on heavy rhythms, enthusiastic singing and at last you get to hear some trumpets, flute and keys. One gets vaguely reminded of the old hit ‘O rasikkum seemane’.



Verdict:

Well, to be fair to the director and the music composer, probably the story demanded such serious stuff ! the album does leave you a little melancholic after you listen to it. There are no original music bits to add charm or lighten the mood. All of it taut, as the movie itself is supposed to be! Indrajit is yet to show his prowess. We wish him well.
