Kollywood has gone a step further in finding interesting titles. 'Aintham Thalaimurai Sidha Vaidhya Sigamani' the title itself conveys a story and attracts the audience. The album consists some renowned singers and let's see what, Simon got to offer in his second outing.
En Anbe - Vijay Prakash, N.S.K. Ramya
The album kick starts with a beautiful melody, neatly composed with a unique tune and stellar orchestration. The track sounds so delightful because of, N.S.K. Ramya's vocals, one could never see this coming from her given most of her songs are fast paced melodies. The composer has given enough space for the lead singers to improvise the tune and played his part perfectly in the background. A song for late evenings/early night to immerse ourselves in love.
Kandangi Selai - Hariharasudhan
The moment you tune in to this song, you can draw comparisons right away from, Kaathadi Pola Endi, from 'Maayavi'. But the similarities end within the first 40 seconds, Simon slightly deviates from the source tune and sets into a typical folk tune. Albiet, a folk number, the composer displays variation with flutes in the first interlude and deliver a soft dance number. Yugabharathi's catchy lyrics are a major plus to this familiar tune.
Madurai Trichy - Chinna Ponnu, Sheeba Truman, Sathya Prakash, Simon, Yabama Jo
A brilliant 2 min fusion work which does massive justice to the title of the movie. The age old, Radio & TV ad features traditional Siddha treatment has been clubbed creatively in the form of modern 'Kuthu'. Given the combination and energy levels of all the singers, the song could have been little more longer.
Onnuna Rendu Varum - Vijay Antony, Sunidhi Chauhan
It is surprising to see the composer giving his best track to another composer. Vijay Antony owns this tune right from the word go. The tune, vocals, and lyrics all hit the right note to create a perfect dance material. Simon makes multiple instruments, Violin, Guitar, and Drums to carry the same piece in different laps to showcase his versatility. This song has got the qualities to feature in all the wedding receptions.
The Elarai - Gana Bala, Yabama Jo
One more dance number to round off the album. This time it's, Gana Bala's turn to make his appearance. Once again, as a composer, Simon shines with his brilliant arrangements. What starts off like an experimental tune for a crowd pleaser Gana in the backdrop of African beats takes a u-turn in no time. Yabamo Jo chips in with his funny rap portion for a while and deviates the track once again to African setup at the end.
