Santosh Subramaniam: Music review
The well-known director of 'Jeyam', 'M.Kumaran' and 'Unakkum Enakkum' has teamed up with the young music director Devi Sri Prasad to offer 6 songs in this movie. The theme of the movie appears to be 'Love Makes Life Beautiful' and each song appears to highlight it. Predominantly male vocals here, to celebrate love!

Senthamizh Pesum:
Lyrics: P.Vijay, Vocals: Ranjith and Andrea.
Santosh Subramaniam
A foot-tapping number with rappy, techno interludes. A comical lyric with generous dose of English words. A sudden swerve into Indian stringed instruments halfway through, lightens the strong beat of the song. Ranjith could articulate the difference between the heavy palatal 'na' and the dental 'na' better.



Adadaa Adadaa:

Lyrics: N.Muthukumar, Vocals: Siddarth.

Lovely romantic lyrics from Muthukumar. They almost carry this folksy song through. Siddarth could have used a little more inflection to his voice. Nice use of Indian music strains.

Santosh Subramaniam
Kadhalukku Kangal:
Lyrics: Kavivarman, Vocals: Devi Sri Prasad.

Devi Sri Prasad springs a pleasant surprise with this cheery song! The vein of self-mockery running thro' these verses has been articulated aptly by this joyous rendering. 'Ana Ippo' refrain that dips apologetically is quite cute. Less intrusive instruments make for happy listening.


America Endraalum:

Lyrics: Viveka, Vocals: Navin, Manikka Vinayagam, Pushpavanam Kuppuswami, Premji and Priya.

Easily the most riotous song in this collection. Could well become a hit. A very hilarious composition highlighting the eternal father-son conflict with regard to the concept of love! The overture recalls the Ektara, native drums and Bhangra music and sets the mood for the entire song. The male voices are nicely contrasted. A pleasant diversion in Carnatic by Priya adds to the overall effect. The words 'Appa Theriyadu' from kuppuswami carry the right touch of anguish and love.



Uyire Uyire:
Lyrics: N.Muthukumar, Vocals: Sagar.

Quite a plaintive song. Gentle crooning of sorts by Sagar. What grips the careful listener is the excellent lyric and the startling images of loneliness conveyed in this song. The humming is haunting too.

Santosh Subramaniam
Eppadi Irundha:
Lyrics: Viveka, Vocals: Tippu and Gopika purnima.

This song is a raucous celebration of fearless love! So we have bold lyrics. The 'Mazhai Varude' refrain adopts a slight change of pace and is high pitched. Quite a folksy number.



Verdict: The director and the lyricists deserve a big pat on the back for not using double entendre in their songs. It has been a long time since we heard songs which project a sense of 'clean fun', so in keeping with the on-screen personality of the hero Ravi, who has this ' wish-he-was-my-nephew' look.

Overall, a lively album all set to become a chart buster.
