Produced by R. Ravendran of Dream Valley Corporation, directed by I. Ahmed (who was an assistant to Kadhir) and starring Jai, newcomer Priya Ananth, Rahman, Laxmi Rai, Urvasi and ‘Thalaivasal’ Vijay, this movie tells the story of a young lad from Salem who comes to Chennai and enjoys some colorful experiences. Music has been scored by Yuvan Shankar Raja, who has been consistently hitting high points these days. He has put together five songs for the film. Let us set off on another musical trip.

  Vaamanan


Yaedho Seygiraai---
Vocals: Javed Ali, Sowmya Rao

An interestingly put-together song that hovers between Pop and R&B, this number is pleasant to listen. It is composed on the Kiravani scale. Notice how subtly the guitar accompaniment varies for both the charanams. The keyboards interludes are cool too. A pleasure to hear the sparkling sangatis of Javed in ‘Adadaa’ and ‘Unnaal’!



Lucky Star---

Vocals: BlaaZe, Suvi, Mohd Aslam

This song varies between slower and faster tempos in a peppy manner and again, pleasingly conceived. Gives a kind of ‘build-up’ to the hero perhaps! Is likely to be relished by the youth for its racy appeal



Money Money---

Vocals: Preethi & D.J. Earl

Plainly a ‘party’ number with a hip-hop touch to it, this song still appeals because of its carefully paced-out rhythm that does’nt hurt the ears. Well sung by Preethi and decent lyrics from Muthukumar. You take some time to warm up to this number.



Oru Devathai---
Vocals: Roop Kumar Rathod

The plaintive Sarangi and the deep tabla notes bring a lot of ‘special effects’ to this song, which is paced languorously. One hears a bit of Hamsadwani and Sankarabaranam in the song. Roop Kumar Rathod, his voice now dipping, now soaring, is able to bring tiny nuances into the song because of the slower pace. Like the other hit of Yuvan ‘Engaeyo Partha’, this song could also make a slow climb onto the charts and stay there.



Engey Povadhu---
Vocals:
Vijay Yesudas

Vijay, with his restrained singing, adds a nice and sober effect to this soft number which philosophizes about life. The guitars go’ pa ni ga ri ga’ and ‘ni sa ri sa ri’ adding pleasing Natabairavi touches to the song. The violin and flute are just functional here.



Verdict:

Yuvan has once again racked up his grey cells to bring out some funky stuff here. Pleasant use of strings, sarangi and tabla deserve mention. One may take some time to warm up to this album this time around.
