Selvaraghavan is back with a fantasy movie, the trailer is out so is the audio and the reviews garnering are very positive. Arya and Anushka make the film big and spicy, and for the first time Harris Jeyraj and Selva team up, so just hold on your breadth and turn your ipod big time, for get ready to go to a second world.
A breezy song that blows the gentle wind off your face, a typical Harris special, Karthik is at his best. The song appears to brag about the new found love of our Romeo who goes about depicting his lover girl amidst all the rain and hoopla. The song is not like a kick or something out of the moon, however the brief female section and lethargic Guitar rocks the melody.
En Kaadhal Thee
Singers: S.P. Balasubramaniam
A beautiful melody that ripples through varied orchestration and sways your soul away. SPB cleans up the song's sweetness with his tender vocals and no wonder do we call him evergreen. Starting off with rhythm and dearness, Carnatic music leaps in between with peaks of electronic drums and the chorus strikes you just next to the heart. Yet another song on the lines of the lovely damsel, Selva's special and his usual foray.
Mannavane en Mannavaney
Singers: Gopal Rao, Shakthi
Ah, the Goose bumpy song is here everyone, Vairamuthu, Harris and two of honey dripping singers are here to entice with some swell strokes. Using a tempo and vocal that show love as it happened and the enigma of vintage rainy cupid strikes, Harris has made the effort to use all the melodically inclined instruments to showcase Selva's best. Shakti steals the show and the faint chorus is unfading. This song by far is one of the best of this album for its intact composition and charming singing.
Vinnaithaandi Anbe Vandhai
Singers: Vijay Prakash
This is Harris's special and he can be at his best when it comes to catchy beats and the peppy music, and all the elements are cocktailed into this song. Vijay sizzles in this lovebug song, Vairamuthu has penned it like a dream where love leaps the barriers and comes over to win the heart. The catchy recursive electronic trance in the background grabs the bass grooves. All said, it is a reminiscent of some of Harris's previous songs, but does not die down that easy.
Dhanush is sure getting stereotypical with the songs that revolve around love and how its chaotic when it comes to female cognitive emotions. Yet another song on the lines of his "Mayakkam Enna", with a Harris touch the big difference is some strong lyrics from Vairamuthu that speak of betrayal and pain of love. A slow kuthu number yet again with some faint female vocals composed in a lethargic way, but as always Dhanush's tempo is spot on and sure to impress.
Singers: Hariharan, Sriram
The other world song this should be is catchy infusing tribal fusion faintly, has Hari doing a wonderful job with Sriram's help. It gets you drenched in darkness of the song with distant howls, eerie instrumentation and avatary feeling, and between interludes the soulful orchestration is signature Harris at his best. The more you hear this song, the more you would crave for the visuals as such is the boost that it digs. In a word: awesome
Theme of Irandam Ulagam
In a grandiose elegant manner, Harris gets all symphonic to elevate the theme of IU. A signature effort that comes out elegantly with strings, horns and a choir. The visuals should be terrific enough to make you stand up and listen its grandeur.
Verdict : A sensational combo!
Stars : 3.5/5
