Melody is its USP
Kanden Kadhalai, a remake of Hindi hit Jab We Met, has been making enough news. The movie directed by Kannan features Bharath and Tamannah in lead roles. Vidyasagar has scored music for the movie.
Since all the songs in Jab We Met were big hits, expectations are high to check out what Vidyasagar has done. But after listening to songs, one is convinced of the music composer's creative abilities. The songs are strikingly different from Jab We Met and also very catchy.
Vidyasagar has ensured that his music stays different. Not just unique instrumentation, but a good choice of singers and perfect harmony is the hallmark of the album. Lyrics by Yugabharathi and Na Muthukumar add more strength to the numbers.
1. Venpanju - Listen here
Singer: Udit Narayanan, Karthik
The song by Yugabharathi is no doubt a catchy one, which speaks about a youth's love and his narration of his darling. The song has splendid beats with Udit Narayanan and Karthik oozing with right energy. The interludes are strikingly different.
2. Suthudhu - Listen here
The song by Na Muthukumar has everything in it to click with the masses. Hariharan's sweet candy vocal with splendid use of flute is a pleasure to listen to. Soon peppy village beats catch up with the song. Supposedly a family number, it is different and interesting.
3. Naan Mozhi - Listen here
Singer: Suresh Wadkar
A song more in the form of Ghazal, it is rendered by Suresh Wadkar. His mesmerising rendition of the number combined with a wide range of instruments (however with a choosy usage) makes it a one to cherish.
4. Kattru Pudhithai - Listen here
Singer: Rahul Nambiar
Seemingly the opening song of the movie, the song begins on a soft tone. Rahul Nambiar's soft voice to mild beats sounds pleasant. He shifts pace as it progresses. Vidyasagar's penchant for melody is evident with this song.
5. Ododi Poren - Listen here
Singer: Lavanya, Rashmi Vijayan
Penned by Yugabharathi, it is the Tamil version of the song 'Yeh Ishq Hai' in Jab We Met. The song aims at enhancing the characterisation of Tamannah, who performs role of a lively girl. The song is a wild celebration of a girl, who loves to freak out and never worry about anything in life.
6. Oru Naal Iravil - Listen here
Singer: Tippu, Benny Dayal
Heared Mauja Hi Mauja? The peppy number of Jab We Met, topped the audio charts. Its Tamil equivalent is Oru Naal Iravil too is equally brisky and peppy. Rendered by Benny Dayal and Tippu, the number is oozing with energy all through.
Listen to Kanden Kadhalai audio, there is no doubt that you would fall in love with it.
