Uyir Mozhi is said to be a sci-fi film that will talk about the characteristics of human beings as per their DNA. The story is about five boys who fall in love with the same girl. Santhosh Narayanan of Attakathi fame has scored the music for this film, directed by Rajaa. Onto the music review now
Pradeep Kumar and Kalyani Nair
This is a pleasant melody and reminds us of the composer’s earlier work for Attakathi. The acoustic guitar touches towards the end are notable while the instrumental interlude before the charanam is appealing as well thanks to its ‘Rahmanesque’ touch. Ultimately, the anupallavi and charanam lift the song.
La La ...
Lyric: Arun Raja
This is a dance number which will appeal to the youth. All elements of such club numbers are present in this too. Sounds like a pop song of King of Pop, Michael Jackson. The mixing of this number is pretty impressive and the psychedelic sounds also add to the effect.
Lyric: Pradeep Kumar
This is another subtle song with elegant acoustic guitar instrumentals and pleasant beats. The vocals of Pradeep are very melodious with classical overtones and there are small violin touches to add more embellishment to the song.
Andony Dasan & Arun Raja
Lyric: Arun Raja
This is a happy peppy number with some funny dialogs interspersed. The lyrics talk about how girls take boys for a ride in the name of love. The young-things would take a liking to this song; the rap portions gel with the mood of the song while there are some accordion touches as well. On the whole, there is a marked resemblance to ‘Podi Vechu Pudipaan’ from Attakathi.
Kedharnath Sairam & Sharmila
The voices have been mixed too much and though the song is peppy with good beats, it doesn’t make much of an impact. The bevy of quirky sounds and effects also make the song a bit chaotic. Could have been toned down!
Santhosh has sung this pathos song in a really high pitch. The percussions are almost non-existent save a few tapping sounds while the cello and viola have been used to add to the pathos mood. A good attempt!
Verdict: The songs have been composed keeping the youth’s tastes in mind. There is a good mix of melodies and peppy numbers. A decent follow-up to Attakathi by composer Santhosh Narayanan
