of the country's youngest and fastest growing music
directors is back with yet another album and this time
he is working for Prakash Raj's Duet films directed
by Viji. the movie is said to be based on he lives and
happenings inside the film industry and has come out
with flying colors in this test of his musical skills.
Kanji Paani Maela - Jassie Gift, Chitra Lyrics: Kabilan
song that is typical folk and Kuthu blend that bank solely
on its naughty lyrics.
A pop number with an interesting westernized rendition by
Lucky Ali and Rahul Nambiar, that talk about an actor’s
rise to stardom and his ambitions taking a dig at some of
the common trends in the film industry in the process. A
song with high tempo with Carnatic interludes well fused
into the flow, makes for interesting listening. Guess it’s
a song that is meant to pep up the flow of the movie, a
kind of montage song probably.
- Naresh Iyer
Lyrics: Na Muthukumar
A love ballad soulfully sung by Naresh Iyer. A haunting
melody and some meaningful lyrics are some of its strong
points. Orchestration is simple with a straightforward
use of violins and western harmony interludes.
Thaiyya - Shreya Goshal
An innovative attempt by GV Prakash, a fusion of Russian
folk and Scottish tunes. Shreya Goshal gives the song
a unique flavor with her voice and high pitched rendition.
A notable aspect is the use of flute and drums blended
with the operatic harmony and violins in the background,
sure to appeal to one and all. One that will grow
on the listener, all it needs is good visuals to catapult
it further. Lyrics are good and are about a girl’s
aspirations and dreams well spelt out.
Vizhiyile – Chitra Lyrics: Pazhanibharathy
A fantastic rendition by Chitra to what could best
be defined as pure melancholy; she is called Chinna
Kuyil not without reason.
one of GV Prakash’s best compositions till date, with
flute and violin pieces making for an interesting mix reminiscent
of the May Madham days of Rahman. The slow tempo adds to the
feel of the song that is sure to pluck your heart strings. A
song that will stay on with you for a long time.
G.V. Prakash Kumar has done it yet again proving that he can
lend a unique feel to a movie with his music and that his following
among Tamil audiences is slowly and steadily growing. The variety
in the album speaks a lot about the movie and what it has in
store. Hope the visuals are as appealing as the songs. It might
not have an instant appeal among the masses but they don’t
seem to be the target audience either.
