THAMBIKKU INDHA OORU MUSIC REVIEW
Review by : Malathy Sundaram
Music Director : Dharan
Vocals : Bharath, Blaaze, Prasad, Suchitra, Hariharan, Shreya Ghosal, Naresh Iyer, Benny Dayal, Javed Ali, Sindhu, Mukesh.
Lyrics : Kabilan, Raj Kumar
Produced by J Saravanan and C Baskar, this film is directed by Badri and has Bharath, Sana Khan, Prabhu, Vivek, Madalasa, Livingstone and others donning the greasepaint. Music is by Dharan and we have seven songs in the album, with one song being repeated.

Koothadu Machi...
Vocals: Bharath, Blaaze, Prasad, Suchitra

Lyrics: Kabilan


A ‘busy’ start leads to an attractive high-pitched start (7 kattai?) in this number, obviously meant for some dancing. Halfway through, it breaks into the ‘native’ mode, which seems to have become a rather predictable trend in some recent songs! Anyway, Bharath’s dancing could make a difference.

Yaaradi...
Vocals:
Hariharan, Shreya Ghosal

Lyrics: Kabilan


  Thambikku Indha Ooru
 
A duet set to rather tight rhythms and as a result, even the Amirthavarshini ‘thanam’ bit by Subiksha sounds a bit harsh! Hariharan sounds surprisingly uneven and Shreya comes up trumps! Her voice and the airy flute bit - these alone remain in our ears after we are through. Could hit the charts for a brief while!

Yennai Yaar...

Vocals: Naresh Iyer

Lyrics: Kabilan

Aching loneliness is the dominant mood of this song set to rather quirky rhythms which sadly takes a toll on the lyrics! Neat percussions, light notes from the wind instruments and strings and Naresh’s expressive singing redeem it somewhat. Appears to be on the Natabairavi scale.

Ore Minsaram...

Vocals: Benny Dayal
Lyrics: Raj Kumar

A tiny number that makes you wonder whether you are listening to an ‘ad jingle’.


Mudhal Penn Neeye...
Vocals:
Javed Ali, Sindhu
Lyrics: Kabilan


Well, with such mushy lyrics this song could well serve as a Valentine’s Day dedication. A done-to-death Sankarabaranam mettu is somewhat enlivened by Javed’s spirited rendering and pleasant keyboard notes. A ‘far-eastern’ musical bit before the second charanam flows uneasily into our ears.


Thambikku Indha Ooru...
Vocals:
Benny Dayal, Mukesh
Lyrics: Kabilan


Oh, dear, what is Ilayaraja’s old hit ‘Raman Aandaalum’ doing here? What does Dharan want to prove, anyway?


Verdict:

Dharan’s concern in bringing out a musically neat album is evident. But after a bright start it runs out of steam. The tunes appear either stiff or rehashed. We are sure he will work on them in his forthcoming albums.
- Songs to Watch out!
