SINGAM MUSIC REVIEW
Review by : Malathy Sundaram
Music Director : Devi Sri Prasad
Vocals : Benny, Manicka Vinayagam, Suchitra, Tippu, Shaan, Megha, Baba Seghal, Priyadarshini, DSP.
Lyrics : Viveka, Na.Muthukumar, Megha
Produced by K.E.Gnanavelraja and directed by Hari, this movie, Suriya’s 25th one, is being distributed by Sun Pictures. We have Suriya, Anushka Shetty, Prakash Raj, Nasser, Vivek, Manorama and others starring in it. Suriya dons the role of a cop. Devi Sri Prasad joins hands with Suriya here (after ‘Maayavi’ and ‘Aaru’) where the music department is concerned. The filming seems to have been done in the southern districts of Tamilnadu, Hyderabad, Vizag and Dubai.

Naane Indhiran..
Vocals: Benny,Manicka Vinayagam

Lyrics: Viveka


Full of swagger and self-assurance, this song may just whip up the tempo of the movie and add colour to Suriya’s histrionics. Nothing more. Is it the Shehnai that we hear?

En Idhayam...
Vocals: Suchitra, Tippu

Lyrics: Na.Muthukumar

  Singam
 

A soft husky song and Suchitra does most of the singing. This song does have a ‘heard-before’ mettu, but the stylish guitars keeps you somewhat focused. The sweet anguish of a woman just falling in love. On the Natabairavi scale.

Stole my Heart
...
Vocals: Shaan, Megha

Lyrics: Viveka


A wannabe rock number set amusingly in Mohana raga scale, but uses the ‘ni’ swara too. Plenty of guitars and drums. But will Shaan’s voice suit Suriya? Let us see! Could climb the charts.


Kadhal Vandhale...
Vocals: Baba Seghal, Priyadarshini

Lyrics: Viveka


An amusing sequel to the famous Sankarabaranam number’ Vaada Maappilley’ from Villu. Baba Seghal’s enthusiasm is cute and the quirky instrumentation which DSP is famous for is seen here! Again, could just have a shot at the charts.


Singam Singam...
Vocals: DSP, Megha

Lyrics: Na.Muthukumar, Megha


Starts off very ambitiously, heavy guitars and all that. When you hear ‘singam singam- - -‘you just shake your head in amusement. It’s entirely upto Suriya to add purpose to this tickling number.


Stole my Heart( Unplugged)...
Lyrics: Director Hari


Unplugged? This? Anyway, some sprightly instrumental usage (keyboard and guitar) makes this nice to listen to.


Verdict:

Well, is this movie a sort of comic caper or is it a serious one? Devi Sri Prasad’s music confuses us quite a bit. DSP seems to have willed himself to project some ‘hip’ stuff here which is lighthearted too.
- Songs to Watch out!
