that talks of the love chemistry between
two youngsters.Yuvan Shankar Raja has
composed music for the film and the album
features seven songs in all( one is a
repeat) with a cute number by Adnan Sami.
All the lyrics have been penned by Na.Muthukumar.
The song that shows up the hero for what
he is. A typical freewheeling young kid
with a happy-go-lucky attitude to things.
The strings that go ‘pa ni sa ni
pa sa’ at the start are repeated
off and on. The Karaharapriya scale is
revealed in the female vocal humming 3
minutes into the song. Why does the singer’s
voice sound so synthetic? Robs the song
Vocals: Shankar Mahadevan,
Shankar Mahadevan belts out this number
with a lot of stressed syllables probably
to indicate the emotion of the hero trapped
by his stubborn girlfriend. Fun lyrics,
nothing poetic about it. The song appears
based on the 2-kattai sruti but the flute
playing on the keyboard feels like 1-kattai
with ‘ri’ swara used as ‘sa’.
The ga,ma,pa,dha swaras used stylishly
on the flute indicate a touch of Charukesi
raga, but one can’t be sure.Heavy
Vocals: Clinton, Nruthya
A noisy number, with strong rhythms, lot
of string sounds on the keyboard and some
vocal humming to complete the picture.
Why did Muthukumar have to write something
like this? anyway the rhythm gets to you
after you listen to it a couple of times.
For all you know, could end up being liked
Vocals: Yuvan Shankar
Now, this is the Muthukumar we would like
to hear—what a nice imagery—‘oru
kal oru kannadi udayamal modhikkondal---‘.
The opening string pieces as well as the
musical interludes are flowing and have
a ‘yearn’ feel about them.
The repeated guitar sounds that go’sa
ga ri ga ri ni sa -----sa sa ni dha pa’are
quite catchy. Yuvan needs to polish his
Vocals: K.K. ,Shweta
lot of thought has gone behind composing
music for this song which is,again, a
dramatic piece from Muthukumar. When the
male sings, you hear robust,passionate
drum sounds and when Shweta whispers her
passages, you hear cascading string sounds
which are infectious. Seems to be set
in the Kiravani scale. Watch how the music
slows down before ‘kaamam enbadhu
katthiyai pola’, recalling a ‘roop
tera mastana’ feel.
Vocals: Adnan Sami
bravely executed by Adnan Sami, considering
the packed lyrics. He also brings delicate
‘sufi-style’ nuances into
the sangatis as he sings. This song is
almost a repeat of song no.4 with the
end bit of music cut out.
short sweet piece that talks of the melting
effect of love all strings of course.
Does Ranjith use a false voice? He sounds
better in his natural pitch.
This is an uneven album with some clap-worthy
stuff mixed with banal ones. If the storyline
is strong and the acting lively, the songs
could catch up. The album of course caters
to the youth sentiments and the songs
look ornamental. Sadly there is a repetitive
feel where rhythms are concerned. But
overall, an album worth giving a shot!
