SIVAPU MAZHAI MUSIC REVIEW
Review by : Malathy Sundaram

Music Director : Deva
Vocals : S.P. Balasubramaniam, Praveena, Haricharan, Chinmayi, Srikant Deva, Suchitra, Suresh Joachim, Vijitha
Lyrics : Vairamuthu

This film was completed in a record period of 12 days, which may earn it a place in ‘The Guinness Book of Records’. Produced by Suresh Joachim Entertainment Inc; and directed by V. Krishnamurthi and starring Suresh Joachim, Meera Jasmine, Suman, Rajiv, Vivek, Bose Venkat and others, this movie has Vairamuthu penning all the lyrics and Deva composing music. There are five songs in the album. One song, ‘kanavu kaangiren’ has Praveena singing it and Sheila acting it – both are visually challenged!

Vocals: S.P. Balasubramaniam

You’ve got to hand it to SPB! What amazing lung power at 60! This song is bound to bring a warm glow to any Tamilian worth his salt. Passionate lyrics and equally passionate rendering, though the tune is so-so. Has a bit of rap in the middle. Watch how the strings and tabla blend so easily with the rhythm before the second charanam.

Kanavu Kangiren---

Vocals: Praveena

A fine debut for Praveena here. A song that overflows with pacific sentiments and the soft keyboard notes and gentle rhythms reinforce the mood. But one wish Deva had chosen his beats to go more smoothly with the natural cadence of the lyrics.



Kadhal Thaandi---
Vocals: Haricharan, Chinmayi

This song has to be relished singularly for its lyrics. Of course, the flute, guitar and the cheery hand-clap rhythms all add vigor to the number fashioned on the Natabairavi raga. Haricharan is as silky as ever, but Chinmayee sounds nasal and indistinct in the higher octave. Could make it to the charts for awhile.




Unarcchigalai Vazhavidu---

Vocals: Srikant Deva, Suchitra

The mandatory dance number, but slightly different from the usual Deva-style ‘kuthu paattu’. Again conceived on the Natabairavi scale. Suchitra is pleasing. You hear a bit of trombone here and there. Oddly, you seem to recall ‘Taxi, Taxi’ often.




Porkkalathil Kadhal---
Vocals: Suresh Joachim, Vijitha

Oh dear! Suresh’s voice wobbles like a piece of fresh-set jelly! Vijitha is quite smooth. Yet another Reethigowla number we have here after ‘kangal irandaal’. But the natural melody of the raga is subdued by the sharp jumpy sangatis! Interesting music interludes, anyway!




Verdict:

The general reaction to this album could be ‘Ho hum!’ The high spots seem to be few and far between. The songs may take their time to make it to the charts.
