Music review By Malathy Sundaram
Produced by Mahadevan Ganesh and Usha Venkatramani. Directed by A.Lakshmikanthan and starring Pasupathi (who does Nana Patekar’s role), Azmal Ameer (who does John Abraham’s role) in an apparent remake of the hindi movie Taxi no.9211. Other stars are Simran and Meenakshi. The music composer for this film is Vijay Antony. What new stuff is he unleashing on us this time? Let us check.

Aathichudi...

Vocals: Dinesh Kanakaratnam, Vijay Antony.

Lyrics: Avvaiyar(!).

Well, well, let us hope Avvaiyar does not turn in her grave on hearing this ‘rap koothu’ according to Vijay’s own words! What we have here is a string of old ‘athichudi’ lines starting from ‘aram seyya virumbu’. And of course some dialogues strewn in between. All packed into hefty and cacophonic native rhythms! Youth is the only target and Vijay Antony has successfully hit the right notes for them. What is its role on screen? Let’s wait and see.

Kanneerai pole...
Vocals: V.Prasanna.

Lyrics: Na.Muthukumar.

Sabhash, Muthukumar, for the soft yet thoughtful lyrics, which have been sensitively set to music by Vijay. The opening bars gently roll ‘sa da pa da; sa pa ma pa ;sa ma ga ma - -  The flute, violin, guitar and keys all combine to essay sober notes well in keeping with the mood of the song itself, sung with feeling by Prasanna. ‘Gaanal neer’, shouldn’t it be ‘Kaanal neer’.


Sorgam Madhuvile...

Vocals: Sakthishree, Rahul Nambiar.
Lyrics: Priyan.

Some rapping at the start and the song itself has a light hip-hop touch about it. Sings about living for the day. Nothing new about the piece, but we have some interesting sound mixing that catches your fancy. Thankfully not loud.



I Phone...
Vocals: Sangeetha Rajeswaran, Ranjith.
Lyrics: Na.Muthukumar.

A lyric with some techno-savvy imagery from Muthukumar! A love duet, but nothing offensive about the words. The song feels more like a Punjabi folk number sung to slow rhythm. Small but chirpy inputs from violins, guitar and drums. Ranjith executes the sangatis more smoothly than the lady singer.


Theme Song...

Vocals: Maya.

Lyrics: Priyan.

A small ‘songlet’ which urges us to ‘break rules’ and freak out. All keyboard stuff with an ominous ‘screech’ sound at the end.

Aathichudi...Mini Version

A concise version of song no.1, minus the dialogues and with added drums.

Verdict:

If the movie is about taxi drivers, then it is better that the music stays earthy, is what Vijay Antony seems to have decided, going by what he has presented in this album. Melody? Certainly, sir, next time!
