Review by : Malathy Sundaram
Music Director : Pollack
Vocals : Benny Dayal, Surchith, Kide Niveda, Sreelaxmi, Anuradha Sriram, Krithika, Swetha Mohan.
Lyrics : R.K.Raghuraman
Produced and directed by Ajaz and starring Ajaz, Anaka and Shilpa along with others, this movie has Pollack, a newcomer, scoring music for it. All lyrics are by R.K.Raghuraman

Paarthaal Naan Charlie...
Vocals: Benny Dayal


Now, this song, on an attractive high pitch, has the same roguish appeal that ‘Mere Sapnon ki Rani Kab’ of Kishore-da (Aradhana) had. It does grow on you. The song of a self-confessed charmer, it has equally charming support from the oud, trumpet and strings. Explosive lung power from Benny.

Vizhigalil Vizhunthaval...
Vocals:
Surchith


Such a cute little number, especially the string notes that go ‘sa ga ma pa ga ma ga ri sa ni sa ga ma pa ---’ that dictate the unhurried pace of this song. You seem to hear

shades of Aberi raga without much use of ‘dha’ swara. Wish the song were longer even if it gives you a ‘Hindi song’ feel.

Oru Naal Mazhai Naal...
Vocals: Surchith, Kide Niveda, Sreelaxmi


A soft romantic number with some delightful sax, some pretty flute and string notes. The sax almost speaks by the way it hops along happily. The song of a young heart so lost in love. Is likely to be loved, never mind the fact it feels like a ‘dated’ pop song.

Penne Nee...

Vocals: Surchith

Mushy lyrics, of course, but what lends it dignity is the clear rendering and the uncluttered background music that blends so smoothly. This song, with strong touches of what appears to be Hindola raga, reminds you of a couple of old Ilayaraja hits, but you can’t help liking it.


Siraginri Paravai...
Vocals:
Anuradha Sriram

Hmmm, quite a surprise, this number. Conceived on the madhyama sruti of the 3-kattai scale of Kiravani raga, this song also glimmers with touches of Vakulabaranam and Vasantabairavi. The violins are equally expressive of the loneliness of the lady and the piano, sax and keyboards are almost polite in following the singer. Tidy lyrics! Deserves a pat for its execution.

Thenkoodu...
Vocals:
Krithika

A repeat of ‘Penne Nee’ mettu, with different lyrics and a slight ‘bluesy’ feel to it. The synthesized voice effect takes away a little from its melody especially after you listen to Surchith.


Enai Theendi Paarada...
Vocals:
Swetha Mohan

What a delightful soprano voice this young lady has! She sparkles in her high-pitched rendering of this song, which is a sort of ‘unplugged’ version of song no.5. Again, the violins and guitars rise up to the occasion. This song could also vie for a place on the charts.


Verdict:

This composer has delivered a neat googly in this album. It pleases you with its seriousness and the sensible, unfussy use of background music. The songs, though westernized, have strong melodic touches that you really take to. We look forward to more from him.
